I had kept only 30 books on my Goodreads 2014 Reading Challenge because I was sure that I could not read as many books as I would love to read this year. Things on reading side went better than expected, all thanks to my Lenova P780 smart phone which enables me to read books on my Kindle app.
Here are the 30 (plus one) books that I read to complete this challenge. I have linked to the review if I have written it. Please click to see each of these reviews.

I am not sure if my expectations went up or if my choice of books went very wrong, I did encounter great books, but nothing which makes me go 'wow' like what Rebecca or Midnight's Children did to me last year. May be it is time to change course !
The few notable books which left an impression on me are The Storyteller, The Sense of an Ending and Gone Girl.
Please let me know about your progress in the challenge and if you will be able to complete the challenge this year..
