What to Read in 2014

I have been revving myself up for another year's worth of reading. It has made me see that I am a year behind on all the hot, new released titles. I am going to read them anyway. Maybe some of the other blogger's linking up to this rad link up hosted by Liesl at The Spiritual Workout will have next year's hottest books ready to go for you!

Here is my fancy shot of all the books I need to read:

and the pre-order that is not available yet:

Like I need a book on NFP! I sort of can't resist though. Total girl blogging crush on a funny lady. 

I know. I am breaking the rules. That is EIGHT BOOKS. Not the five Liesl specified. Well, if it makes you feel any better, The Van Gogh book is so large, I doubt I will get through it, the Bible will also not be finished, and that brings me down to only six, so let me give you the scoop on the six (or the five left in the photo) I have a shot at finishing in 2014:

Pope Awesome
I have to read everything Cari at Clan Donaldson writes. She is down with Cardinal Dolan AND Jim Gaffigan. Also, she does this brilliant thing with comboxes... for some reason, I am having trouble linking to her page today, but yep. Girl crush.

Daring Greatly
This comes highly recommended from some Cathsorority ladies, so I am diving in. I have no idea what it is about or what I am in for, but it sounds like something that should be fantastic.

Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church
This was an Amazon rec. I expect to learn and be brilliant when I am done. 

Life In Spite of Me
I will save this for when I run out of steam in the pro life fight. It is about a young girl who survived abortion.

Lean In
All the cool chicks read it last year, but I really want to focus more on developing my own theories and ideas for women in the workplace and how that meshes with Catholicism and where the heck the holes are in the movement and how to fill them and, and, and....

Hopefully I don't just drop everything to read the fun books first! Simcha and Cari, I'm lookin' at you.

What are you reading? TELL ME.

P.S. I was super excited to do a book link up and ignored that it is a link up for recs not to-reads. So.... here are my recs!


  1. Love the edited photo! I guess more than 5 is ok... you have escaped my wrath! :)

  2. Oh my gosh. This made my day. And, since this is new year's day, it can be said that this MADE MY YEAR!
