What I'm reading

Last January, I discovered I had only read 3 books in 2012 (or at least had only remembered to add those 3 to Goodreads, but I racked my brain and couldn't come up with any other titles I was sure I'd read), so I decided to do the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I thought reading a book a week would be a reasonable goal, but I failed miserably, managing only 21 books out of 52.

This year, I thought I'd better not join the challenge, because I hate visible signs that I'm failing at something I've pledged to do. And lo and behold, I've been gobbling up books ever since. I decided today to join the 2014 challenge after all, with a modest 26 books. That's 5 more than I managed last year, but I'm already almost halfway there. I just hope making this official hasn't doomed me to failure. ;)

Here are the books I've read so far in 2014 (this widget will update as I mark more books as read, but at the time of posting, there are 11):

And here's what I'm reading next:


I'm really happy to have stumbled upon Charlie Cochrane's Cambridge Fellows series, because there are 10 books in the series, plus two shorts. While it doesn't have graphic sex, the characters do have sex (the descriptions are more romantic than graphic) and it doesn't just fade to black. Plus, Jonty and Orlando are completely adorable.

So what's on your list?

Updated to add the piece I forgot

Ha...I meant to add my full TBR pile (at least things I've added on Goodreads; I don't even want to think about my literal pile) as well:
