"First Book Of The Year: 2016"


This is the third year Sheila @ Book Journey is hosting this event. "First Book of the Year:2016."  Each year I study my TBR Shelves and try to decide which book will be the winner and be the "First Book of the Year" I will choose. The winner this year is....

"MURDER, SHE WROTE: CLOSE-UP ON MURDER"

I enjoy curling up with a good cozy mystery and a cup of yummy tea when the weather gets cold. And I know Jessica Fletcher will never let me down. She always gets her man/woman in the end. I love trying to catch the clue to see if I can figure out whodunit!  Happy Reading in 2016.

    1. Thanks for the visit Laurel, I have been watching Murder, She Wrote on Netflix, but also enjoy reading the books as well. I guess you could say the books are my guilty pleasures, so what better guilt to start the New Year off with.

  17. You know, until late last year I didn't even realise there were book companions to the TV show Murder, She Wrote - I lifted my rock. Haha. I'll be looking in to my local library for some this year I think. I hope you enjoy!
