Happy New Year! It's another year filled with anticipation and excitement of what lies ahead! For a reader it's the start of new places to explore, people to meet and new things to discover all courtesy of someone we probably will never meet… the author.
The last two years, I joined Sheila from the Book Journey's First Book of the Year Event and have loved it so much! I joined again this year! It is so much fun decided on what book you want to start your year with! And it's fun to see what everyone else chose too!
The book I'm choosing this year is The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende. It's a story of star-crossed lovers who through WWII and many generations still keep their love a secret and alive. The Japanese Lover has gotten great reviews and I've been meaning to read it for a long time. My Secret Elf this year sent me a copy of this wonderful book (Thank you again Secret Elfster!) and I am so happy to be starting my reading year with it!
What will be YOUR first book this year?! Want to know what everyone else is reading?! Go to Book Journey and SEE for yourself! Thanks Sheila for hosting this great event another year!
