  1. we have so many ‘want-to-read’ books in common! i want to read Chris Hadfield’s book, because my boyfriend really admires him but doesn’t read, and I want to school him with my knowledge 😉 I bought ‘I am Malala’ a few weeks ago, and am also really looking forward to that one, too! And ‘A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.’ It is a classic I am drawn to the most, so I think 2014 will be the year for it! Great list!
