A Year in First Lines

I first saw this wonderful meme done by Lisa at ANZLitlovers. Brona from Bronasbooks also looked back at her First Lines.  I thought it a magnificent way to look back at 2016, a difficult year in many ways. I haven't done as much blogging as I would have liked which has been frustrating, will I ever finish my posts on The Life Changing Magic of Tidying and How Proust Can Change Your Life? I hope so. 

The meme came from Jane @ Beyond Eden Rock


I’ve been wanting to read Catherine Jinks for quite some time.


This week I came across this most excellent list and thought it worthy of a Listmania post.


I wasn't expecting to see this exhibition on my recent trip to Melbourne, indeed I had never even heard of it.


The list this week comes from Mamamia recently. 


I like hanging out in used book sales.


Best in Show is a fabulous exhibition currently on at Orange Regional Gallery.


I'm not much of a cool girl and so I'd never heard of Rosie Waterland before I heard about this book. 


I've been intrigued by this book ever since I saw the cover quite some time ago.


It seems rather incredible that another Forage has come and gone.


Platero and I, is a prose poem, a book like none other that I have read. 


I knew as soon as I saw the gushing ads for The Bélier Family before Christmas that I wanted to see it. 


I had a great time participating in French Bingo 2015, although sadly I never got to leap up yelling BINGO even though I read 14 books

So, it's not really surprising to see all my themes are there. Reading of course. 1001. Book lists. Art. My obsession with Paris and all things French.
