Winner and a 2014 reading plan

I am late getting a winner posted for the $25 Barnes & Noble gift card.  Gage stayed home from school today since he’s a little sick and he helped me draw a name from his fireman’s hat.

Hannah!

Thank you all for taking the time to visit my old posts.  I wonder if the top posts will change in the next year?

Last year I tried to read from a stack of books I already had on my shelves that were favorites of other bloggers.  This year I decided that I don’t need to discover any new fiction authors (outside of my one book from She Reads a month).  I want to rediscover the authors I already love and take the time to read their backlist or newest hardcover.  Every year I fall in love with a handful of authors and before I can read more from them I’m moving on to the next thing.

A few authors I’ve only read one book from but want more!  Jennifer Donnelly, Tana French, Sarah Jio, Kristin Hannah, Susanna Kearsley, Leah Stewart, JojoMoyes…

A few authors I have read all their books and always look forward to the latest.  Harlan Coben, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Sarah Addison Allen, Jeffery Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme series…

A few favorite authors I usually love and want to read everything they’ve written.  Anne Tyler, Anita Shreve, Greg Iles, Kate White, Deborah Smith, Elizabeth Berg, Alice Hoffman, Dean Koontz, Stephen King…

This is not an exhaustive list but a good starting point.  I have a year of great reading ahead of me!
