First Book of the Year
Picking the first book for the year is always a big process for me. I get all my books finished before (or sometimes on) New Year's Eve so I'm starting completely from scratch on New Year's Day. Then comes the decision. Do I want a completely new book by a completely new author? A reread? A new book by a tried and true author? What if the book isn't good? What kind of tone will that set for the year? You see? There's some serious decisions here!
So when I came across the First Book Challenge hosted by Sheila at Book Journey I knew it was perfect for me. So after much debating and hemming and hawing and shopping my bookcases I have picked my first book of the year! Not only is it recommended but it takes care of both my Reading Assignment Challenge for January AND a space on my Classics Club list! So drum roll please.....
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! It's short, it's fun, it's a book I should have read ages ago and it gives me an excuse to re-watch the movies after I finish the book. What's your first book of the year?
