    Thanks for the new recommendations, Lisa! My “to-read” pile was down to 5 books and I was getting nervous LOL. There are several on your list that are going into my hold queue at the library today.

    My daughter and I just read an excellent book – “I’ll Give You the Sun” by Jandy Nelson. It’s listed as a teen book, but it is truly for all ages. It reminded me a bit of “The Fault in Our Stars” – just a very good read. I am currently reading the latest Jack Reacher book, they are such good and fast reads. I was also turned on to a new series by my BFF at Christmas. The author is Karin Fossum, she’s a Norwegian author and her recurring character is Inspector Sejer. I received “He Who Fears the Wolf”, which was one of the first ones offered in English, though not the first in the series. The first one is “Eva’s Eye”, which is in my “to-read” stack now.

    I used to be able to read 100+ books a year, but since I started working out more regularly 4 years ago, I am lucky if I finish a book a week. Not counting audio books, of course. Wish I had more time to read, but a girl needs to sleep and shower and, oh yeah, go to work, right?

    Keep those recommendations coming!

      I get twitchy when my “to read” list gets too small! My goodreads “to read” list is way too long though. Every time I see a book or someone talks about it and it sounds interesting I add it to the list. I think I have 500 books on there now. I need to start working through those books or narrow it down. LOL

      Thanks for the recommendations!

    OMG I think it would take me 5 years to read 140 books – and that would be pushing it even. When on earth do you find the time with a job, marriage, working out, cleaning your house, etc.?

    Just got Station Eleven which a lot of people have mentioned to me — I’m happy it’s got a 3 week return from the library!

      Haha! I read during my breaks and lunch at work. I read at night before bed for about an hour. Sometimes on the bus. I find time. I also read really fast. And honestly, getting the Kindle I found that I could read even fast than before. Not sure why.

    I have a pile of books on my Kindle to read, but I just haven’t had as much time with the house rehab to do much reading.

    I am reading Life is a Wheel by Bruce Weber, which is about a man’s bike ride across the US. It’s very easy to read and quite interesting.

    If You enjoy a good political thriller, I would highly recommend Pulse by Robert Cook.
    One of the most outstanding books in it’s genre that I have ever read and there are a couple more in the series too. I strongly encourage you to check out some of the reviews and look into this one. I’ve recommended Pulse to a number of my friends and family and I’m yet to hear anything but praise.
    The absolute high point of my 2014 reading.
