For anyone out there with a To Be Read list that seems like it will never end, this challenge is for you! This is all about making your own personal list of books 5? 10? 20? 30? more?that you want to commit to reading in 2014. Books can be published in any year, be from any genre, and from any category -adult, YA, MG, Graphics, NF, etc titles.  All that matters is that they are books you want to be sure not to forget as that TBR list continues to grow! These aren’t the only titles you will read over the year, but a list to help guide your reading.


Join Maria Selke from Maria’s Melange and myself to take part in the #MustReadin2014 challenge. Thank you to Linda Baie from Teacher Dance for joining us and creating a button and image for us to use!

Many of us began sharing using the #MustReadin2014 hashtag on twitter and in sharing our lists, we realized we were a little community of readers with a common goal – tackling the TBR list! Make a list on Goodreads or share titles in a blog post and include the titles you want to be sure to read in 2014. We will try and connect over the year through the twitter hashtag and likely through blog posts four times this year: April 1st, July 1st, October 1st and a year end review to share our progress.

These are the lists shared so far

  3. Hi Carrie,
    First of all, I LOVE what you are doing here! And, I got sucked in reading your To Read in 2014, so many awesome books listed! But my joy (and curse) is that I am only ever reading books from the current calendar year (I will be reading 2013s until April and then switching to 2014s) for my committee work. And the books I chose are based on what I can get through the libraries and what publishers send us. It is a fabulous journey, but I never know where it will lead me. As much as I truly do love this idea, I don’t see that it fits with what I’m in the midst of. 🙂

    And thank you, thank you, for inviting me to join in the fun, I really appreciate it!
    Hope you’re having a wonderful New Year-and staying warm!
