End of the Year Book Bucket List

Tuesday, September 16, 2014
There are roughly 15 weeks left in 2014. If I read about two books a week from now until then, I can get through 30 more books before the end of the year, putting my total books read this year at 55. I wanted to read one book a week for this year, for a minimum of 52 books. Life hasn't really let it work out that way. However, now I have more time on my hands. According to my Goodreads tracker, I am 12 books behind for the year. I think it's doable; a few weeks ago it said I was 25 books behind schedule, so I'm already catching up! I am posting a bucket list of books I would like to finish before the end of the year if possible. Several of them I already have checked out from the library, so I'm assuming I will get to them. There's also several that I own and have waited a long time to get around to reading. (Actually to be honest, most of the books I own I'm still waiting to get around to reading!) They are listed in no particular order, definitely not the order I will read them in. How many books do you want to read before the end of the year? Do you have a list of books in mind?

1) Much Ado About Marriage by Karen Hawkins
2) The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa
3) Contagious by Scott Sigler
4) A Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson
