Recommended Books to Read in 2014
My mom always tells the story about how I taught myself to read when I was three years old. I remember her reading me books over and over till I knew them off by heart. She’d try and skip a few pages to get to hurry things along, but said I would always notice and demand she go back and read the skipped pages! My love for reading hasn’t waned and I’m still devouring books 30+ years later!
I decided to make a list of some of my all-time favourite books from recent years as well as finding out what books my friends recommend. I’m always looking for new books and have added a few to my TBR (To Be Read) pile.
