First Book of the Year 2014


I have been impatiently waiting for today.  Not only because it is New Year's Day but because it is the First Book of the Year Party hosted by Sheila at Book Journey!

I've had my first book picked out for days and could hardly keep myself from starting it early.  I knew if I started it, I would finish it right away because this author is one of my all-time favorites.  I picked "The Sum of All Kisses" by Julia Quinn as my First Book.

I was supposed to take a picture of myself with the book but I just don't do good pictures.  I didn't want to horrify everyone, so here is a picture of my book with my cup of tea.  All ready to read!



If you are joining in for the First Book of the Year 2014, please leave your link in the comments so I can stop by.

If you aren't joining the party (why not?), what will be your first book of 2014?

  16. Perfect reading, I am actually listening to a Julia Quinn for my first audio of the year - Ten Things I love About You.
    Enjoy it and I think many of us feel the same way about photos!

  20. I love your tea cup!!! I'm a huge tea drinker - love brewing loose tea and found this amazing blend from this coffee/tea shop in NYC. It's a black tea/green tea blend and it's soo delicious!

    Anyway, hope you enjoy your first read! Happy New Years!!!
