Mount TBR 2014 Checkpoint #4

Although it's still early, since I'm only planning to read on my kindle till the end of the year, here's my final checkpoint on Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2014: 

1. Tell us how many miles you made it up your mountain (# of books read). If you've planted your flag on the peak, then tell us and celebrate (and wave!). Even if you were especially athletic and have been sitting atop your mountain for months, please check back in and remind us how quickly you sprinted up that trail. And feel free to tell us about any particularly exciting book adventures you've had along the way.
I had signed up for 12 books but managed to read 27! I'm really proud of myself and I hope to keep it up nex year (I already signed up for 2015).

These were the books I read in 2014 (all books counted for other challenges):
