First Book Of The Year – 2021

First Book 2021

It’s that time of the year!! Sheila is once again hosting First Book and it’s something I look forward to every year. Readers love the anticipation of a good read, don’t they? And I love the idea of starting 2021 with a good book.

Visit Book Journey for details but basically you select a book, take a photo of you with the book, and then email it to her. She includes it in a photo collage and off we go!

Here’s what I’ve chosen:

The Overstory by Richard Powers

R.I.P XV Begins Today!

Heart Shaped Box

The first book I plan to read for the R.I.P. XV challenge is Heart-Shaped Box. It’s been on my list for a really long time. I’ve heard good things. I have high hopes.

Aging, self-absorbed rock star Judas Coyne has a thing for the macabre — his collection includes sketches from infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy, a trepanned skull from the 16th century, a used hangman’s noose, Aleister Crowley’s childhood chessboard, etc. — so when his assistant tells him about a ghost for sale on an online auction site, he immediately puts in a bid and purchases it.

It’s not too late to join in. Just pick some books or movies and use the hashtags you see below when talking about them on Twitter and Instagram (#PERILREADERS, #RIPXV).
