Going into 2014, I knew I wouldn't get as much reading done as the previous year. I was applying to graduate schools, working two part time jobs and living with my then boyfriend in the beginning of the year. By the end of the year we had moved to Pittsburgh, PA from New Brunswick, NJ, I was in my master's program working on my degree in Library Science, and finally back to reading lots of books, even if they were for classes. Life was crazy. I still wanted to hit that 50 book goal, but came just shy with only 48 books read. These are not necessarily books published in 2014, just books I read that year.
