First Book of the Year 2014

Sheila of Book Journey is doing a great meme today and I decided to participate by sharing the first book I'm reading in 2014.

It's Skippy Dies, by Paul Murray, a novel I've been meaning to read forever. Well, just since it came out in 2010. So not really forever. But you understand.

Set in Ireland in the present day (more or less) it's a coming of age story about a group of boys in a private school. I toyed with the idea of making 2014 an all-Ireland-and-Britain reading year but of course that's not realistic; even so, I can start off strong with a book from my favorite country.

So after I get home from work today (yes, I'm working) and back from dinner with my in-laws, I'll settle in and get started!

What are you excited about reading in 2014?
