Books I liked in 2014

Just like last year, 2014 too was an atrocious year in books for me. Some of the blame for this sad state of affairs rests with the long-form articles that I regularly read on Pocket. In the future, I am thinking of sharing the best of those on a monthly or yearly basis. But mostly, the blame lies with my laziness. I had set a ridiculously low target of 12 books on GoodReads this year and barely managed to reach that. Most of the reading happened in the latter half of the year, when I restarted visiting libraries and reading regularly at bedtime.

I think 24 books per year, at 2 books a month, is a far more realistic and healthy goal that I should aspire to. I will try to do that in 2015. Thanks to a erudite circle of friends (especially the doctor) and websites like GoodReads, I am discovering more quality books and finding the motivation to finish them. The low number of books that turned out to be duds this year was due to this process.

Here are the few books I liked in 2014, linked to my reviews of them:
