Welcome to 2016, friends! My only new blogging goal right now is a new look for the blog so be on the lookout 🙂I couldn’t resist joining Sheila this year in celebrating the first book I’m going to read this year. I considered many but decided on one that I won from fellow blogger Lloyd. It was his favorite of the year a few years back and it’s been sitting on my shelves for that long (this happened last year when I won Lisa’s favorite book and it took me years to read. I mention it only because it ended up being my favorite book last year! But no pressure Lloyd :)).
I read the first few chapters last night and have a very good feeling about The Language of Flowers. Have you read it? What will be your first book of 2016?

Reading Goodnight June…. I ordered it the same night that I read your review and I already love it!
Good call metaljunkee. I gave GJ a 4+ out of 4. Yep. And I had a friend email me last night to say that it’s one of the best books he’s ever read. Pretty cool, yes?
That’s great, Carol! I hope you like it 🙂
Stacy, I have NO FEAR that you will love TLoF. NONE. As for my 1st book (I’ve already sent the picture to Sheila – cool idea), I’m reading Last Bus of Wisdom by Ivan Doig. I’m on page 118 of 450. I like it so far. but it’s no TLoF!
I’m also participating (this is my first time!). I just finished my post. I’m trying to think if I have The Language of Flowers (I think I do). I’ll look forward to your thoughts. Happy New Year!
I’ve heard so many good things about this book – hope you love it!
I’ve heard good things about your first book as well. And such a pretty picture of you and the book! Happy New Year, Stacy!
ENJOY your book. I read it and enjoyed it!!
Happy New Year – Happy Reading in 2016!!
My First Book Of The Year
Happy New Year, Stacy! That book has been on my wish list for ages. Hope you love it 🙂
This is such a good book – our book club enjoyed the flowers and their meanings.
Oh, I loved The Language of Flowers….it was one of my favorites in the year I read it. Enjoy! Here is my FIRST BOOK OF 2016 POST
What a great choice Stacy! I loved this book and I am sure you will too. Happy New Year.
My First Book
This book has been on my TBR for far too long but I haven’t actually gotten to it. I need to dig it up and read it very soon. Hope you love it!
Happy New Year! Your first book has such a great cover. I love it.

Great choice – I loved that book! Happy New Year to you and your family!
I’ve never seen this book before, but from the way it sounds in all the comments I need to think about reading it. My TBR list just keeps growing today…Happy Reading 2016 Year.
Oh, I heard this is a good one from my mum who read it some time ago. Hau’oli Makahiki Hou.
I love the idea of giving away one’s favorite book of the year so that a new person can read it on the first day of the next year.
Happy New Year Stacy. I loved your 1st book of the New Year – cute pic too.
I loved this book. So did my book club members. I like your photo. It is similar to mine. Your blog is already looking different. I have a new blog design and hope to keep it awhile as I change mine too often. Wishing you a Very Happy New Year!
The Language of Flowers sounds like a good book. I haven’t read it yet though, but it’s on my ever growing reading wishlist.
Happy New Year to you!!
This is a new to me book, but it’s always interesting reading the favourite books of some of your favourite bloggers.
Wishing you a happy new year filled with wonderful books!
Great choice – I loved that book! Happy New Year!

This was a great book and made my favorites list in 2011. I’m sure you will enjoy it.
I haven’t read this book but I’ve wanted to. The title is so compelling. I think I have a NetGalley copy. Hope you love it!
