#MustReadin2014 and Gathering Books Check Off Your Reading Challenge April Update

Carrie Gelson and Maria Selke started the #MustReadin2014 Link Up at the beginning of the year, and Gathering Books started the Check Off Your Reading List Challenge 2014.  They go hand in hand, and I wrote a blog post listing 35 of the 900+ books on my Goodreads To-Read list that I want to definitely read this year.  This is my first update.  Be sure to link up on their blogs!
Here are the titles I've read so far:
 The Goldfinch

READ!  Finished 1/26/14
Seven Stories Up

READ!  Finished 2/2/14
Better Nate Than Ever

READ!  Finished 2/6/14
The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)

READ!  Finished 2/10/14
The Shadow Throne (The Ascendance Trilogy, #3)

READ!  Finished 2/14/14
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

READ!  Finished 3/15/14
The Invention of Wings

READ!  Finished 3/29/14
As you can see, I liked all these books.  I figured I would since I put them on my Must Read list for a reason.  Only 28 more to go!


  1. Nice! Looks like we shared some reading experiences so far this year. I also read and loved Coldest Girl, Shadow Throne, and Seven Stories Up. I read Dream Thieves last year (and also adored it) Did you know you can preorder the last book already?

    I am loving this challenge :)

  2. I love your mix of genres/target audience. I got my husband Goldfinch for Christmas . . . looks like I should carve out time for that, too! Better Nate Than Ever was on my list, too--SO much fun and heart. Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

  3. I loved Seven Stories Up and Bigger than a Breadbox! I have ordered the False Prince but haven't read it yet so it will at take me awhile to get to The Shadow Throne. Good luck with the rest of your list!

  4. I just read Nate and The Shadow Throne in the last week! such great titles. You must be like me and anxiously awaiting the next book after Dream Thieves - I hope it is published this year b/c it's on my Must read list! Happy Reading! Thanks for being part of the MustRead community!
