Books I Read in 2014

I have been an avid reader for most of my life. I like that books bring me knowledge, personal growth and entertainment. Since becoming a mother, I don't read as much as I used to but still make the effort to expand my knowledge (beyond surfing the internet). Below are the books read in 2014. You can click on the links to read my reviews over at Goodreads.


1) The Spy Mistress by

2) Believing God by Beth Moore

3) 7: An Expiremental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker
4) French Kids Eat Everything by Karen Le Billon
5) Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins

6) Surprised by Motherhood by Lisa-Jo Baker
7) 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp


8) Fearless by Max Lucado
9) The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

10) The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry

I attempted to read the following books and just couldn't seem to finish any of them... 
I received a free copy of Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon and I just couldn't get into it. I don't read a lot of fiction, and when I do it is typically historical fiction, sci-fi or dystopian in nature. This book didn't fit any of those categories and I never was able to commit to reading it.
America, Emipire of Liberty by

Khaled Hosseini courtesy of Goodreads. I really enjoyed it, but was too lazy to get a real copy and I am kind of over reading on digital devices at this point. Several years ago, I really enjoyed reading the Kite Runner and hope to finish this new book by Hoseeini when I get a chance.

I picked up How We Got to Now by Steven Johnson at my local library in an effort to get back into reading actual, tangible books. The premise of this book was fascinating, but the writing style was a bit ADD for me. I ended up rechecking it and made it 2/3rds of the way through, but just couldn't quite finish it.

Another library book I recently picked up was The Innovators by

If you are interested, here is what I have read over the last 5 years: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
