One of my reading challenges this year will be to read all the titles in the World Book Night 2014 list.

There are 20 titles encompassing various genres and styles. Fortunately I’ve only read 2 already.

Click on the links below to find out more about the books and their authors. Here’s this years list:

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

Four Warned by Jeffrey Archer

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

After the Funeral by Agatha Christie

Short Stories by Roald Dahl

Confessions of a GP by Dr Benjamin Daniels

Hello Mum by Bernardine Evaristo

Getting Rid of Matthew by Jane Fallon

Theodore Boone by John Grisham

The Humans by Matt Haig

A Perfect Murder by Peter James

Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin

Cherub: The Recruit by Robert Muchamore

Whatever it Takes by Adele Parks

Black Hills by Nora Roberts

The Boy With the Topknot by Sathnam Sanghera

Gorky Park by Martin Cruz Smith

59 Seconds by Richard Wiseman

I’m planning to start reading them shortly and will be reading them in the above alphabetical order (saves trying to pick which one next) and as funds are tight I’ll source as many as I can from my local library (as it’s only at the end of my street!).

Feel free to join in, there looks to be some good reads!

      Well it’s not really a challenge Jenny, you’re supposed to sign up to give one of the books away. (see here http://www.worldbooknight.org/).
      I didn’t get selected as a giver last year 🙁 so this year I’m just reading all the books on the list! 🙂
