First Book of 2016

Welcome to 2016, friends!  My only new blogging goal right now is a new look for the blog so be on the lookout 🙂1st aI 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 :)).

first bookI 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?

    • 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?

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  17. 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.
