So 2014 was the birth of a joint feature called Futuristic Friday. I asked Katie @ Doing Dewey to join in and she quickly agreed. For me, it’s been the best- me and Katie do have some similar reading tastes (we are both She Reads bloggers!) but Katie also loves her some nonfiction and other books- books that would fly under my radar without her mentioning them and making me aware!
When this feature started, it was something I needed. I need to break down the reading year into smaller chunks, to find the books I want to read and to focus on that (which then frees up my mind to sort through interesting review requests/free range reading) So, I told Katie that toward the end of the year, I was going to do a post that tallied up how many books I suggested/read…. Here is the post!
So.. how did I do?
January 2014– 5 books suggested. Read 3.
These were my 2 faves from that selection post!
February 2014– 4 books suggested. Read 3.
March 2014-4 books suggested. Read 4.

Ahh Beatriz. She entertains. That is all you need to know.

But wait… I’m not finished… I also read 2 of Katie’s picks!!!!!! Can you guess which ones of Katie’s I read? (Hint: One has a beautiful dress on cover AND the other has gardening and life lessons wrapped up in nonfiction package!)
Ok, ok, ok… I won’t tease you anymore……
My stats for 2014 Futuristic Friday:
- 56 books suggested.
- 41 read. (+ 2 of Katie’s) = 43 2014 Futuristic Friday selections read.
- I’m going to write this year down as win!
If you loved Futuristic Friday, have no fear- we will be back. Getting our lists together for 2015 reads! And if you are just now hearing about this- stick around for a spell- between Katie and I, we’ll add to your TBR!
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
