What I Hope to Read in 2014

As you may have guessed I am the kinda person who would have an extensive TBR list which would actually take a few lifetimes to complete but this month I am trying to read more - I did initially attempt a book a week but I really don't have that much spare time. I have got through two books this year so far - Emma by Jane Austen and Animal Farm by George Orwell - which I have put on my 'empty shelf' so I hope to fill that up within the year.


Her Grace In Disgrace -Claudia Harbaugh
Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro 
The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini 
Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad
The Catcher in the Rye - J. Salinger
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood


Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
Persuasion - Jane Austen
Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen
To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Vanity Fair - William Makepeace Thackeray 
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
Cranford - Elizabeth Gaskell
Ulysses - James Joyce
Middlemarch - George Elliot

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear any recommendations or the books you have been enjoying recently.
