First Book in 2015

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

It's always a tough decision, finding the perfect first book to read for the brand new year. This year, I figured I'd pick a book that would not only be a great read, but also something that will hopefully inspire, motivate, and jumpstart the writer and the dreamer in me. So enter the memoir, On Writing by Stephen King. This is a memoir, solely dedicated to his life as a writer, and I definitely respect him as a creator, so this should be perfect for me. 

How about you? Do you ever read about books that are in your area of interest, hobby, passion, or field? I find that doing so causes a huge spark of inspiration for me, and every little bit of spark definitely helps. Anyway, let me know what your very first book is for this year. Happy reading!

  1. I hope you enjoy it! Really, my only true hobby is reading, so any book that ends up being about a woman who loves to read, or a bookstore always makes me happy. :)

    My first book of the year was The Nightingale. And it was really good!

  2. I used to read about gardening (hobby) & animals (profession) but now I find myself staying away from it. I guess when I read I want to escape reality??

    Before blogging and reviewing I read a lot of travel memoirs and I would like to get back to that.

    My first two books of 2015 were duds lol So hopefully the next will be a good one!

  3. I always put do much thought into the first book of the year too : ) I hope you enjoy that one. It's been years since I read On Writing, but I just loved it!

  4. My first book was Pride and Prejudice, it was good to start the year with a cosy reread. I've never really thought about picking the first book of the year, it's normally just whatever I am in the middle of!
    Enjoy On Writing, I read it a few years ago and enjoyed it.

  5. Haha, I agree that choosing a book with which to start the year is a big decision! I went with Ready Player One which was a good choice as it turned out to be amazing!
