What I Read in 2014

Last year I shared a list of every novel I’d read in 2013 that wasn’t one of my assignments for the reviewing site I write for under a pseudonym. (This list would be four times bigger if I could tell you about all of those books!)

I thought I’d do the same thing this year. This time I’ll group them by genre.

Biographies, Autobiographies, and Memoirs
“My Accidental Jihad” by Krista Bremer
“Combat Doctor” by Mark Dauphin
“Saving Simon” by Jon Katz
“Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior” Luis Carlos Montalván
“Laughing All the Way to the Mosque” by Zarqa Nawaz
History
“The Rush: America’s Fevered Quest for Fortune, 1848-1853” by Edward Dolnick
Humour
“Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favourite Literary Characters” by Mallory Ortberg
Mainstream Fiction
“The Bear” by Claire Cameron
“Grist” by Linda Little

Science Fiction

“The Girl with All the Gifts” by M.R. Carey
“The Girl Who Couldn’t Read” by John Harding
“Origin” by J.A. Konrath
“Just Gone” by William Kowalski
“Wild Fell” by Michael Rowe
“The Bad Beginning” by Lemony Snicket
“My Real Children” by Jo Walton
Science and Medicine
“Missing Microbes” by Martin Blaser
“Reaching Down the Rabbit Hole: A Renowned Neurologist Explains the Mystery and Drama of Brain Disease” by Allan Ropper
“The Copernicus Complex: Our Cosmic Significance in a Universe of Planet and Probabilities” by Caleb Scharf
“Your Atomic Self” by Curt Stager
Sociology/Psychology
“Just Babies: The Origins of Good and Evil” by Paul Bloom
“I Stand Corrected” by Eden Collinsworth
“The End of the Suburbs” by Leigh Gallagher
“The Teacher Wars” by Dana Goldstein
“Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls and the Consequences of a World Full of Men” by Mara Hvistendahl
“Candy” by Samira Kawash
“Generation Atheist” by Dan Riley
Looking back, it’s pretty easy to tell which topics interest me the most. I am really surprised that I barely read any books about history in 2014. In previous years I’ve spent a lot of time in that genre.
How many books did you finish in 2014? How have your reading habits changed over time?
