52 Books in 52 Weeks? Book Recommendations, Please!


I’ve set quite a few goals for myself this year. Some are modest, while others may be deemed “lofty.” One of my objectives this year is to read a lot more books. I’ve always been “a reader.” However, when law school and studying for bar exams became my priority, leisure reading was pushed to the side. Now that I’m done with school and studying (for the rest of my liiiiife–I think), it’s time to revisit this reader lifestyle of mine. A few of my friends attended a young professionals trivia night earlier in the week. The piece of feedback that stuck with me most was “I knew all of the movie answers, but I definitely need to read a bit more.”

While scrolling through Twitter the other day, I stumbled upon a tweet about “52 Books in 52 Weeks.” It’s pretty self-explanatory — you read one book a week for the year. Immediately, I was down for the challenge. I went to Amazon and Barnes & Noble to compile a list of potential “52 in 52” books.

My goal here is not to say “I read 52 books in a year! Na-na-na-boo-boo!” I simply want to unwind with a good ole book and expand my breadth of knowledge and imagination while I’m at it.

  1. I wish I could join! I used to be a ravenous reader in my pre-baby life. Now I just try to squeeze in as many pages as I can before I pass out at night. Right now, I’m reading Stephen King’s 11/22/63, which is fantastic…but really long. I’m hoping to get to the end of it before my toddler heads to college. 😉

    • Lol! I’m sure you’ll finish before 1st grade. I have some friends who are joining me on an extremely modified level. Ultimately, we just want to read a little bit more. :-)

  2. What an awesome goal for 2014. I would love to read 52 books in a year but I just don’t read that fast. I have one friend who can go through 2 books a week easy. A couple of my favorite authors are Lisa Gardner and Laura Kaye. Visiting from SITS Sharefest.

  3. This seems fun! I also joined in a 24 in 2014 reading challenge since I still have school to worry about. Hehe. :) There are a lot of free ebooks you can choose from this site and most of them are bestsellers I think —-> thebookvalley.blogspot.com.
    One of the books I downloaded was The Cuckoo’s Calling which I heard is a great book. I dont know if youve read it, but goodluck on the challenge! :)

  4. I ran across your post while looking for inspiration for my own list! I’d thought to concentrate on classics this year but when the first handful on my list included several over 500 pages, I’ve already scratched some titles in favour of some good, modern mysteries. If you’re still looking for someone to join your challenge, I’ll search for my track shoes and try to catch up.

    • Hi McKenna,

      I actually need to put on some shoes and catch up myself! I’m sort of doing a modified version of the challenge now. What books have you added to your list?
