What is your first book of the year?



I'd also love to see what books you plan to read in 2016.
What books are you hoping to read this year?



My word for 2016: Play.
With a capital letter.
What's your word?

  1. I've been hearing good things about Everything Everything. I want to get to it this year. It's on my endless TBR. 2016 goal is to read from my books - the ones I own now. Happy New Year to you! Hope it's one of joy, peace, and hope. And good weather (right? what's up with the weather here? LOL).

    2. I plan to eat twelve grapes tonight at midnight. That will assure me of good things in 2016.

    3. I'm not sure I can make it until midnight though. I may try nine grapes at nine.

    1. It's probably considered a "children's book" if you include YA.

  8. Love your word for 2016. Instead of a word, I choose the phrase "move forward". I hope 2016 brings you many good memories, books, and laughter. Happy New Year!

  12. Such a creative pic of you with your first book of the year! Actually your whole post is quite creative so I wasn't surprised to see your word for 2016 is Play. :-)

  13. I've heard so many good things about this book. I need to read it soon. Happy New Year!

  14. Hau'oli Makahiki Hou. I looked up your book; it has an interesting premise. It would be a good mile walk in that child's shoes. I like how your word of 2016 is play. As adults we are always scheduled up and serious about paying bills and getting the children to places or taking care of others. We need more play in our lives. Good for you.

  15. Enjoy your book! I finished my first book about an hour ago (started reading it a few days ago). I've unofficially (no post) chosen "empathy" for my 2016 word.
    Happy New Year!

  23. Everything Everything is a book I heard A LOT of positive feedback about in 2015 - I haven't read the book myself, but look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    One book, well collection of books, I plan to read in 2016 is The Chronicles of Narnia. It sounds crazy to some that I have yet to read the series, but I intend to rectify that this year and have them sitting on my shelves waiting for me!

  29. I've heard so many great things about this book, Nancy, it is on my TBR list for 2016! A great choice for First Book! MY first book is The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende and I am enjoying it, although the story has taken a road I was not expecting, which is a nice surprise. Happy reading!
