I am probably revealing a level of geek about myself that I shouldn’t… but…
too late. 😀
Every year – long before I was blogging, probably since I was a kid…. I have always made the first book of the year a big deal. The first book for me had to be one I had been wanting to read for a while, one that I couldn’t wait to dig into, even with blogging – that first book excitement each year has not changed.
It is a book I really want to read – not (necessarily) a review book, a book club book or any other book that is on my TBR shelf. This one may have been purchased by me for the occasion…
Here is what I have on the possibility list:
Since meeting James Dashner this past summer and finding him to be smart and funny… I want to read him. This book has been on my shelf for probably the 3 years it has been out. Is this the time?
Can you believe I havent read The Twelve yet? Did you know this is the one book I wanted to leave New York with this past June and I did… and I have passed it around my book club but still have not read it myself? What is wrong with me????
Or Wild? Because this book makes me think of hiking and maybe someday I will go hiking for a long long time… maybe… who knows… I should read the book….
Or…. back to Gillian Flynn? She rocked my world in Gone Girl. Is it time to try another one?
I would love to hear what you are considering for the new year! What is your first book going to be?
