That being said, I did better than I thought I did. I *did* finish at least one book of consequence a month -ish and completed a total of 18 books. I somehow managed to check some books off my 2014 as a whole list and my specifically summer reading list.
What was on your list that you read in 2014? Any recommendations? I'm compiling 2015's list, and I think I'll challenge myself to read certain books in certain months/seasons.
Many mysteries - I think mostly because they're easy to get in the whole book within a day or two. One young adult fiction and a surprising amount on the list of non-fiction (shows I am indeed growing up!).

Fleeced (Regan Reilly Mystery) by Carol Higgins Clark
