2018 First Book of the Year

Every year Sheila hosts this fun event so that we can all show the book we’re starting the year reading.  It was a no brainer for me.  As soon as I saw the movie Wonder last month I knew that I wanted to read the book (it didn’t hurt that it was also sitting on my TBR stacks).  I don’t know how much time will be devoted to reading today since hubby and kid are both home and that means family time, but I’ll see if I can carve out some time in bed this afternoon since I am still trying to conquer this bad cold that found it’s way into the house a week and a half ago.  For the first time in I don’t know how many years I didn’t make it to midnight to bring in the New Year.  I guess that means I’m well rested, right?

Hop on over to BookJourney and see what everyone else is reading today.  You’ll even find my pic in her collage 🙂


So, what’s your first book going to be this year?

    That’s a great picture, Stacy and clever. Hope your cold is better soon. I hate winter colds. And we’re trying to definitely not have anything here that makes the Mr. cough any more than he needs to. I need to read that book too. Putting it on my list. And I don’t think staying up until midnight is all that. Decided that it’s midnight somewhere, whenever I decide to go to bed. LOL

    I’ve been working on A Christmas Carol and only have 30 or so pages left and I’m also working on John Green’s new book Turtles All the Way Down. I hope to finish at least one of these today. I want to start Wonder with Gabe tonight was well and then see the movie. Good luck!

    I would like to read Wonder too. I think this is a great first choice, Stacy! I hope you have a Happy New Year!

    I want to either read the book or see the movie – heard great things about both. Hope you feel better soon. I’m on round two with this cold/sinus crud so you have my sympathy.

    I thought about choosing Wonder for my first read, but ended up going with The Reminders. I plan on reading it soon though, and seeing the movie.

    I hope your cold is gone soon. Happy New Year!
