2014 Chapter Book List: Books read and rated

For 2014, my goal is going to be 100 “new to me” novels.

In 2013, my goal was 95 novels and I read 100 books. 100 is a beautiful number so I will stick with it! I already have 30 of these titles picked out – they are on my Must Read in 2014 List.

For my own future reference, books will be rated on a 5 star system.
