Happy New Year and First Book of the Year!!


Happy new year everyone!  I wish all of you the best in the upcoming year, and to all book bloggers out there, many happy reading days to come!!

I was planning to get some serious reading done today, but things haven't quite worked out that way as there was the tree and decorations to take down (if I didn't, the possibility of them still being up in June would be pretty high LOL), as well as other small, menial tasks that needed to get done.  I haven't been blogging very much the past several months because life sort of got in the way, and unfortunately, blogging had to take a back seat.  I didn't make any resolutions with regards to blogging as I don't know how much things will change in the near future, but that's just life.  I would like to explore a bit more into the science fiction / fantasy world this year as I feel like I've really neglected that aspect of my reading and I miss it very much.  I always participate in reading challenges because I like them, they're fun, and they keep me focused on what I am doing. 






My first book of the year is Golden Son by Pierce Brown, hosted by Book Journey.  I have been waiting to read this for a very long time, and I promised myself I wouldn't touch it until the new year.  Red Rising was one of my favourite books last year.

Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within.


What is your first book of 2015 going to be??

  3. This is the first I've heard of it.

    I'm about to start a book by the Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who commanded the space station for awhile.

    1. I know the one you are talking about although the title eludes me for the moment. My kids got to hear him speak and as my son wants to be an astronaut, it was quite thrilling for him.

    1. Enjoy your time to yourself. In my house, that time is so rare that when it does happen, I often don't know what to do with myself. LOL
