My first book for 2018

Sheila of Book Journey invited a bunch of bloggers to share what they planned to read as their first book for 2018 -- and she made a collage of their reads.

I'll be reading Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart -- the January pick for my book club -- and I'm looking forward to it (as much as one can for a book that seems to be heavy on misery).

What's your first read of 2018 going to be?

  2. I haven’t heard of your book...I look forward to hearing what you think! I’m reading The Wife Between Us by Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks.

  3. I'm cheating and finishing up two in progress first, but my official FIrst Book is Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay by Elena Ferrante.

  4. Happy New Year, and good luck with Things Fall Apart! That's one of those classics I've given myself permission to not read -- I have heard it is very dark indeed, so I will content myself with hearing what you think of it. <3
