Year in Review: 2014 Reading List

I’ve decided to set my 2014 reading goal at 52, one more book than I read in 2013. My original plan had been to set my goal at 40, the same goal I had in 2013, but I just found out that, in the Modern American Drama class I’m taking this spring, I’ll be reading 32 plays, so I figured I could bump up my goal a bit. Here’s to lots of good reading in 2014! For reference, I write individual book reviews of everything I read, but I’ve also bolded my favorites on this list.
