This year I made a goal for myself to read all the books I received as gifts during the Holidays. So often I receive a book and then I add it to my shelf full of books to read and then it lingers there on the shelf for way too long. So I am determined to read these books this year and I thought I would do a post on it to hold myself accountable.
Here are the books I received as gifts and that I plan to read in 2014. Note: Two of the books I bought myself as gifts while Christmas shopping so I am also counting them.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is a Secret Santa gift from Caitlin at http://cookingandcomposition.wordpress.com/
Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King is also a Secret Santa gift from Caitlin at

Thank You Caitlin!! I love my new books and can't wait to read them.
For Christmas, my son Max picked out this book: The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo and I am reading it now as my first book of the year! I am loving it.
My Mom and Step-Dad got me Dr. Zhivago for Christmas and I am looking forward to reading this around March for an online Literary Event, hosted by 3 amazing bloggers (myself included). (announcement to come later).
I bought myself these two books and when I saw the price I couldn't
Wonder by RJ Palacio. I have heard wonderful things about this book and I figured I needed to read it for myself to see what everyone is talking about.
The Gendarme by Mark Mustian is another book I am reading for the online Lit Collective Reading Retreat. The theme is World War I and this book was at half-price. The cover photo is just stunning of this beautiful girl.
So there you have it. SIX books I received as gifts and plan to read in
