My First Book of the Year 2019

Today I’m posting My First Book of the Year with Sheila and others (including Laurel-Rain Snow, who reminded me with her post that I read Sunday morning that I needed to e-mail Sheila a photo of me with my first book; thanks, Laurel for the reminder!). Also today I’m posting my goals for this year, the year I turn 50 (in June) and my One Word for 2019. 

Without further ado, here it is:

I’ve been hearing about this book for a while, including from Chris Wolak at Wildmoo Books and of the Book Cougars podcast. Also since I work at a library, it seems like a natural fit. I won’t lie though I’m not a big fan of true crime, which I hear is part of the story, but from those who have read it, they say that’s only part of the story and not all of it. So as the British say, I’ll give it a go!

Do you have a first book you plan to start out the year with? If so, what is it? If not, what are you looking forward to reading in 2019? To see what others selected, visit Sheila’s blog post.

  1. I’ve seen this book around but haven’t read a blurb to know what it’s really about.

    I really think the first book of the year sets the tone for the year so I need to give it some thought. It may end up being non fiction or dare I say it, self help.

  2. Awww that’s a cute photo of you! I’m not familiar with that book. I made a note for December of this year to get in on the First Book of 2020! I started reading The Bonesetter’s Daughter yesterday so I guess that’s my First Book of 2019. But it wasn’t planned. Next year I will have a plan!

  3. Excellent choice for FBotY! I’ve been slowly working my way through that one and thinking about visiting the Central Libtary when I finish it. Happy New Year!
