Winter Reads For 2014

This cold and rainy weather is the perfect time to catch up on all the reading that I have planned for the winter season. Not that I don’t read any other time of the year. Actually, that’s all I do. Read. And make many lists about reading.  As I sit here and type this, I think about how I have come such a long way with how I read.

Back when the bookstores started coming out with e-readers, I was of the school that I wanted the book in my hand. I swore I would never use one of those contraptions to do my favorite activity. There is nothing like having a book in your hand. You know, the sound it makes when you crack it open or the smell of the fresh paper mixed with ink. From the time I was young and went to garage sales with my Grammy, I always gravitated to books. The quarter bins at a sale? Total bliss for me.  I didn’t care what shape they were in, I just had to have them.

Winter Reads For 2014

As I got a bit older, I started having to have my books all in the same format. If I started a series in hardcover, I had to get them all in hardcover. Or if I bought a book in the small mass market it size, the series would have to be the same so it looked uniform on the shelves. It is no wonder I work in a bookstore now. Despite my earlier stance, I have to admit that I have fallen in love with my e-reader. It really comes in handy when you are on vacation, because you don’t have to drag a bag just for books.

My winter reads for 2014 include a lot of variety. My kids laugh because I have such a large variety of tastes when it comes to reading. So my winter reads list looks something like this:

Currently Reading:

On Deck Reads:

  • Game of Thrones: A Song Of Ice and Fire. Finally going to jump on the bandwagon and read this series
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green(Teen Fiction). This book was sold out over the Christmas season, so I want to see what the fuss is all about.
  • Countdown by Michelle Rowen. Along the same lines of The Hunger Games and Partials series.
  • Love & Respect In The Family by Emerson Eggerichs. I am doing a book review for the BookSneeze
  • The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Loved the movie, so I want to see what the book is all about.

So these are just a few of my winter reads for 2014. The list is forever expanding, so I am sure I will have to have an update post in another month.

So share what you’re winter reads are! Leave a comment so that I can get some new suggestions.

    I love my kindle because it means I don’t have to drag my book bag around on trips. Also, when I finish a book and want another one, I can download in seconds. Right now I am reading “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See. Next up is “Divergent” for book club.

    Great list of reads. I didn’t think i would love my kindle as much as I do. It has definitely increased the # of books I read since I can read in the dark when everyone else is asleep. I bought a hardcover of fault in the stars when it was on sale last year and its my next book to read. Good luck with the Game of Thrones series, that alone would take me all year to get through. My hubby loved the tv series but it was too graphic and violent for me.

      Thanks for the recommendation Heather. I did see a lot getting “Waiting For Alaska”, but not as much as FIOS. Going to add that to my wish list!
