It is finally the new year and I can start on my Sweet Summer Fling! I have been in such a reading slump this past two weeks because I have been waiting and waiting to start this challenge, that nothing would satisfy me!
Let the reading begin!
Over at Book Journey Shelia has invited us all to join in on the “First Book of the Year” fun and I happily joined in!
I am reading “Before I Die” by Jenny Downham. I discovered this book from the preview for the movie starring Dakota Fanning. It looked good and I wondered if it came from a book so I looked it up. Success! So I ordered it from Paperbackswap and put it at the top of my TBR list.
Shelia asked for a picture of us reading our first book of the year and here is mine.
My sister thought that I looked like I had been crying and it was a depressing book. Ok fair observation, but I had already made up my mind that this was going to be my first book. Next year I will make sure that I pick a more upbeat book. Who knows, maybe this one won’t be all that sad!
