Kate Reading Goals for 2014

My goals for 2013 were simple enough. And I’m good with simple. So I’m following in the same vein for 2014.
 
1. Read 200 books.
 2. Try the romantic suspense genre-a genre I’ve been avoiding. I want to read at least one each month, just to give the genre a fair shot.
 3. A challenge from Kay. The Wallflowers series by Lisa Kleypas.
 4. A challenge from Anne, yet to be determined.
 
And while not a goal, I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to reading my favorite plot. Marriage of convenience, an arranged marriage, mail order bride. My absolutely story line. But after a string of really bad ones, I decided in May to quit reading them for the rest of 2013. Now I can’t wait to start reading them again.
 
So I’m looking for suggestions and advice. What do you recommend in the suspense genre? How about marriage of convenience/mail order brides?

Kay’s Reading Goals For 2014

I have decided on my 2014 reading goals. I got this idea from Kate and Anne. My goals aren’t numerous but they are different for me and are as follows:

1.) I will read a G.A. Aiken book.

2.) I will read Adam and Karla’s book by Kallypso Masters even though that genre has just about killed me.

3.) I will accept one challenge from each of my co-bloggers, as long as it isn’t too far out of my comfort zone.

4.) I will continue with the In Death series by J. D. Robb challenge with Anne. You are still several books behind on Lorelei James’ series, Anne. Kate and I haven’t forgotten this.

5.) I will read at least 20 books that have set on my Kindle collecting dust.

6.) And finally, I will try to read 200 books for 2014 and actually complete my Black Dagger Brotherhood Challenge.

These goals may not sound like much to you but this list is daunting to me. Now, what about you, Anne and Kate?

Kay’s Top Ten List of the Year and More

Here’s my top ten list for 2013.

1.) Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks. Very pissed that I have to wait for the final book in this wonderful trilogy for a whole other year! Are you listening Maya?

2.) All Over You by Emily Snow. The second full length novel in this series has been pushed back time and time again. Pissed about that too!

3.) Knight by Kristen Ashley. Very alpha male book and I loved it. It was also filthy and I loved that too!

4.) Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I absolutely can not say enough about this YA series. I love every book and eagerly await the next one.

5.) Wolf With Benefits by Shelly Laurenston. Laurenston writing about non-winged shifters. Enough said. Plus I get to quote exchange with Anne.

6.) Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Gut wrenching and spectacular. Kenyon at her brilliant best.

7.) Trying To Score by Toni Aleo. Hockey and hotness.

8.) Empty Net by Toni Aleo. Repeat the above.

9.) The Christmas He Loved Her by Juliana Stone. A sweet book about second chance love.

10.) SEAL of Honor by Tonya Burrows. Military romantic suspense. One of my favorite genres.

I read a great number of great books this year. I got to go to the RT book convention with Anne. We had a great time there and I discovered that I’m officially too old to read out of mass market paperback books.

I discovered and met Toni Aleo. She is my favorite find and author of 2013. Her hockey series is fantastic! Here’s to 2014 and the hope for more wonderful books to read!
