First Book of the Year 2015 with Sheila @bookjourney & New Year’s Resolutions

First Book of the Year badgeHappy New Year!

Sheila at Book Journey has compiled a collage of photos and a collection of links from book bloggers reading their first books of 2015. Check it out if you need some ideas on what to read to start off the new year right!

photo of me reading The LuminariesI received a copy of The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton, so that’s my official first book of the new year, but I’m only halfway through Revival by Stephen King (somewhat disappointing so far) and also have a library copy of A Man Called Ove which I’ve been seeing on Best Books and Favorites of 2014 lists. I also have The Wrong Girl by Hank Phillippi Ryan to read for our Mystery Book Club at the library, and my own copy of Me Before You, another one I had hoped to read in 2014. Etc. etc.

Eh? What’s that? Resolutions?

I failed miserably at my TBR Pile Challenge with Roof Beam Reader again this year, and while I’m enjoying reading everyone else’s resolutions, I don’t think I’ll sign on for challenges or make any reading resolutions this year. Just keeping my head above water with work, reviews, and blogging will be challenging enough!
