The lovely Sheila at Book Journey is once again hosting First Book of the Year and this is the third year I participate. It's a meme where we share the first book we will be reading in 2016. If you head on over to Sheila's blog she has a cool montage of all those participating. Here is the pic of me with the book I chose to read:
I've heard so many good things about All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. The copy I am holding is the copy I bought for a friend of mine when the book was just published. I picked it up at Costco, read the back cover and thought, "This sounds amazing." I was right because it then went on to win the Pulitzer Prize and the Goodreads Choice Award for 2014.
So I have been wanting to read this one for a long time. It's a perfect way to treat myself on this first day of 2016. I know this is going to be a great reading year. I hope you all have a great book to start your year with!
