I rediscovered my love of mysteries this year, so I’ll definitely have to check out Reconstructing Amelia. And I got Elevate the Everyday for Christmas (last year!) and I think I’m going to make a little learn-to-use-your-camera crash course for myself based on it. Reply Kim says: January 3, 2014 at 8:06 am Thanks for the list! Always nice to know what others have enjoyed reading 🙂 Reply Moira @ Hearth and Homefront says: January 3, 2014 at 10:11 am What a fun way to present your list! I’m going to have to get Elevate the Everyday soon-I really want to work on taking more pictures this year. Reply Amy says: January 3, 2014 at 10:43 am I love how you’ve divided the books! Reply Krissa says: January 3, 2014 at 12:13 pm I LOVED ELEANOR & PARK AND ME BEFORE YOU. GREAT LIST HERE! HERE ARE MY FAVORITES FROM THE YEAR: loved Help, Thanks, Wow as well and most things Anne Lamott writes. But I just read her most recent book, Stitches and didn’t love it. I just discovered Kate Morton this year and read several of her books. Here are my favorites from the year: http://www.morethanmundane.com/2014/01/03/favorite-books-of-2013/ Reply Caroline Starr Rose says: January 3, 2014 at 12:51 pm The same friend has recommended The Lifeboat and The Interestings to me. Now that I see them on your list, too, looks like I better get reading. Reply Tamara says: January 3, 2014 at 8:33 pm I JUST got “Me Before You” from the library today, along with “Goodbye For Now” and “And The Mountains Echoed.” Looking very forward to devouring these books. Reply Ashley Wells says: January 3, 2014 at 9:43 pm Just added Elevate the Everyday to my to read list! Thanks for sharing! Reply Shana Norris says: January 4, 2014 at 12:22 am Wow – that’s a glowing recommendation for Me Before You. Good news for my book club since we’re discussing it in Jan. I’ve almost borrowed Wave from the library several times but just can’t bring myself to read it yet. I just put Elevate the Everyday on my Amazon wish list – now hoping my husband, mom, or sister gets it for my birthday 🙂 Reply Anne @ Modern Mrs Darcy says: January 4, 2014 at 10:14 am I love your categories! The one that jumps out at me (well, that I haven’t read) is Wave: I keep hearing wonderful things, and I keep thinking I’m scared to open it. Maybe in 2014…. Reply Kristen says: January 5, 2014 at 12:00 pm I too love the Day the Crayons Quit (as does my daughter). I’ve never done an audiobook before, but have been thinking about one for my walks. Perhaps I’ll have to start with The Woman Upstairs. Reply Nina says: January 5, 2014 at 2:15 pm Such clever categories! I especially liked “by an author I didn’t think I liked.” Ha!
