Books in 2014

Books in 2014 - What I'm Reading this Year at LifeintheWhiteHouse.comOne of the most exciting things about a new year, are new books! I don’t think I’ve ever NOT gotten a new book or two or four for Christmas, so I always have something new to read in the new year.

Last year {2013—you can find my accomplished reads for ‘13 here}, I spent most of my reading time in guilty pleasures: Fiction. Particularly re-reading my favorite book series Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and getting new people addicted to the series. It worked out quite well…of course I was ridiculously heartbroken when the release date of the new book was postponed and I now have to wait until June of this year.

So, since last year was a year of guilty pleasures, this year, I suppose, I must be responsible and resume responsible reading, which for me means, non-fiction. Don’t get me wrong, non-fictions are great, but they’re NOT what I LOVE to read. I have a slew of books that I received at Allume, that I still haven’t read, and a bunch more on parenting and homeschooling that need to be read.

So, here it is…
