The First Book of 2015!!!



I learned that Sheila at Book Journey makes photo collages of readers reading their first book of the new year from Elizabeth at Silver's Reviews!! I thought this was a fun idea and decided to post a picture of me reading this morning (in my pajamas and robe of all things) my first book of 2015... I'm a bit camera shy about posting pictures of myself on my blog! I think this is actually the first picture I've posted of myself ever here for my readers to view.



So, which book am I reading on the first day of 2015?? The Seance by Joan Lowery Nixon... It's a young adult novel that sounds intriguing from the book summary. Joan Lowery Nixon is a new to me author and I'm hoping that The Seance lives up to my expectations!!

So, which book is your first read in the new year??

  10. So with you on the robe and PJs! I was in sweats and slippers all day myself! I'm pretty sure my daughter went through a big Nixon phase a year or two ago and her taste is pretty solid so I'll have to go raid her bookshelves. I like the look of that one! Hope you got some cozy reading done today and happy New Year!

    1. Staying in your pajamas all day sounds like a great way to spend the day, especially if it involves reading.

  17. That looks like a comfy robe! I can be a little unsure about putting personal stuff on my book blog (as in pictures), but I think it just adds to the fun, sometimes! Always good to see someone. :)

    My first read of the new year was a short one - The Secret Library by Haruki Murakami. Very strange, but I really liked it so I guess it was a win all around.

  19. I'm like you & don't usually post pics of myself, but a book selfie that focuses on the book works for me :-)
    On the other side of the world, I enjoyed reading my first book of the year, lounging by the pool in my swimmers & hat!

    Happy New Year & Happy Reading!

    1. I envy that you were able to enjoy your first read of the year by the pool in your swim suit! Ha, I'm freezing cold with the cold snap that had come our way.

  20. I hope you enjoyed your first book of 2015. I set around in my robe and nightie sometimes all day. I think when it snows I just don't feel like getting dressed, and it has started snowing today in my little corner of the world. We are expecting 7-8 inches by tomorrow morning. I figure it is the ideal time to curl up and read, read, read. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the reading world recently.
