Happy New Year!


I can not believe it.
It is finally 2011. Happy New Year!


Mr. Whimsy and I are back from our travels and I am looking forward to reading.

I sure did miss you gals.
So what I want to know is, what book will be your first read of the new year?I am trying to decide between Halo and Love in a Headscarf.

  1. I'm working on two: Undressing the Moon (A goodreads winner) paper back version and the netgalley kindle version of The Lying Game. Once I finsh those two I will move to UnEarthy, I think. It sounds really good and will satisfy my first month's read for the DAC challenge. How about you?

  3. Happy New Year, Juju!!!

    I just started Vixen by Jillian Larkin. It's 1920's flappers so it should be fun. :)

    I thought Halo was pretty enjoyable a bit slow paced though. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you think of it when you read it.

  4. Happy New Year to you too!

    My first book is Rebecca by Du Maurier.

    I love the cover for Halo and want to read it myself, so you should go for it. :)

  5. Happy New Year Juju! So glad you had a great holiday and are home safe and sound now. :o)

    My first book was actually Unearthly, I just finished it this afternoon and could not put it down. So good! Next...I can't decide between Across the Universe by Beth Revis or The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan.

  10. Welcome back, Juju! I'm reading a book that starts out with a scared woman receiving a mysterious phone call from a man whom she agrees to meet secretly. She hangs up just as her husband enters the room . . . It's called The Rhythm of Secrets.

  11. Yay welcome back! Hope you had a happy New Year! The first book I read of 2011 was Withering Tights by Louise Rennison (brilliant) and now I'm reading The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate, which I'm loving so far!x

  38. A lovely New Year to you, too. I took an unexpected detour and read Nocturne in one sitting, a welcome change after finishing 1984. Now I'm reading the book I have been wanting to read for a year (since I got it last Christmas)-- Saving CeeCee Honeycutt.
