The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists. 

     

How was your reading week?

  4. Thanks, Kathryn.

    I like to be organized and have things written down on the site and in an Excel file. :)

    I am excited to read them.

    Thanks for stopping, Kathryn.

  5. Oh...I know, Katherine. The covers pull me in, and the books have been really good.

    Going to start The Bracelet today. Just finished A Woman's Choice last night.

    Thanks for stopping, Katherine.

    Here’s my Monday!

  7. Thanks, Laura.

    I am starting it today.

    Review will probably be up next week.

    Thanks for stopping.

  8. The Bracelet and The Pocket Wife sound like good reads to me after looking at their blurbs. Thanks for sharing these titles, and enjoy!

  9. I am looking forward to reading both of those books.

    Thanks for stopping, R Hunt.

  10. I really loved The Signature of All Things - hope you enjoy all of your books!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I hope I get to it soon. It has been in this list for over a year.

    The poor book keeps getting pushed down the list.

    Thanks for stopping, Shannon. Glad to hear it is good.

  12. You've got so many beautiful books ahead of you... I would have a hard time deciding where to begin! I admire your organization. Hope you have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks, JoAnn. I credit my organization to my business background and my parents.

    It is a bit difficult to choose, but when there is a deadline, that makes it so much easier.

    THANKS so much for stopping by.

  14. It looks like you have lots of good books on deck to read!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am excited about all of them.

    Thanks for stopping, Kay.

  16. You are so organised with your lists and pictures and posts!

    Maybe writing up my TBR pile into a spreadsheet would help me to cull some of them :-/

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am very organized...thanks for the compliment. :)

    Thanks so much for noticing and for stopping by, Brona Joy.

  18. I almost picked up Three Story House the other day but ultimately picked up another one. There are just too many books! I hope you enjoy all of your reads this week.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have The Girl Who Came Home but haven't had a chance to read it. I hope you are enjoying The Bracelet. The cover is gorgeous!

  20. Hi Elizabeth,

    I look at the number of 'To Read' books I have on my Goodreads list and physically cringe! Add to that all the physical books I have on shelves all over the house, and not to forget the several hundred I have stored on my trusty Kindle and I quite agree with the person who commented about culling her list.

    The trouble is, I just don't have the willpower to resist a good story. I am surrounded by books day in, day out, in the charity shop and you have no idea just how difficult it is to resist buying bagfuls every day!

    I quite like the sound of 'The Bracelet', although given the mixed reviews it has been receiving, I probably don't need to add it to my list just yet.

    The reviews for 'The Pocket Wife' have also started coming in and so far they seem to be very positive. This one is already on my 'Want To Read' list, so my visit today hasn't actually increased my list count :)

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week,

    Yvonne

  21. So little time to read all the books we want to read! Enjoy your list for the rest of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, my goodness--so many books, Elizabeth! But you are very organized, too. Many of these interest me, including The Bracelet, and Elizabeth Gilbert's book. Enjoy your reading this week--I think you will! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I need to follow your lead and plan out my end of year reading! Hope you read something great.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It makes it so much easier to do it that way.

    I put the order on my blog and I also have an Excel spreadsheet.

    Thanks for stopping, readingdate.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know, Yvonne, but I am guessing every blogger has books piled everywhere and a TBR stack that is quite large. :)

    I have a difficult time letting any books go even though I share with friends.

    Darn on the reviews about The Bracelet. I hope it does turn out to be good.

    Thanks so much for stopping, Yvonne.

    You always bring good ideas to my blog and great comments.

  26. Thanks, Harvee Lau.

    I know I have so many books and so little time.

    THANKS for stopping, Harvee Lau.

  27. So many books for sure, but I love them all. :)

    Thanks for stopping. I am sure I will enjoy the book I am reading this week. At least I hope I do. :)

    Good to see you here again, Suko.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree...too many books and they all are so good.

    Glad to see you found a book. I hope you enjoy it.

    Thanks for stopping, Lindsey.

  29. The cover of The Bracelet is what drew me in. I am a cover lover. :)

    I am not too far into The Bracelet. I hope it is good. Covers usually predict the inside for me about 99% of the time.

    I hope I get to The Girl Who Came Home soon. I have had it since this summer.

    Thanks for stopping, Denise F.

  31. The Bracelet sounds like a great read, and I think The Bookstore is one I would probably enjoy too. What a brilliant selection of books you have to read :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for stopping, pagesandtea.

    I am looking forward to reading all these books. I just wish I had more time. :)

  34. I've only heard of a handful of these books, but I've heard good things about the ones I have heard of. I hope you enjoy all the books in the "up next" section of this post!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks, Emily.

    So nice to see you stopped by.

    I hope the books I chose are good...they usually are so I am hopeful.

    THANKS for stopping.

  36. You've got so many great titles to look forward to. Enjoy!

    I didn't post a Sunday/Monday recap this past week, and appreciate you stopping by my Tuesday Into/Teaser post today.

  37. Thanks for stopping by, Catherine.

    I am excited about my books.

  38. Great list! I have a few of these on my library hold list: The Signature of All Things, Strings Attached, and A Hundred Summers.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ohhh lots of lovely books, I'm drooling over so many of them. The Girl who came Home looks really interesting. Fingers crossed that most of them are great reads (looks promising!).

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think they all will be good.

    I am very picky about my books, and I am usually lucky that 99% of them turn out to be good. :)

    Thanks for stopping, Trish.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Nice choices, Jennifer.

    I have had all three of those in my TBR list for a long time. Those poor books keep getting pushed down the list. :(

    I actually was at a book seminar and met the author of Strings Attached.

    Thanks for stopping, Jennifer.

  42. The Bracelet caught my attention. You're reading a lot of good books! I'm jealous since I'm not reading as much as I used to.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am almost done with THE BRACELET, and it is quite good.

    Fancy Southern families but a murder hidden in their fanciness. :)

    Thanks for stopping, Laura.

  45. Wow what a great list! You are so organized--I'm so impressed you already have plans for next year! Several of your upcoming books are on my TBR list--I hope you enjoy them!

  46. Thanks, exlibrisheather.

    I am just that way with being orgnanized, and a visual reminder work out the best for me. :)
