First Book of the Year 2015

First Book of the Year 2015

One of my favourite book bloggers, Sheila of Book Journey, has proposed a challenge titled “First Book of the Year 2015“.  I’ve accepted Sheila’s challenge, it’s more of an invitation really.  Here’s what she proposed:

I would love for you to join me in … picking the book that you will be reading into the new year.  It can be a coveted book that you have been waiting to read, a guilty pleasure book, a re-read of a favorite that you want to explore once again… whatever you want … You do not need to be done with the book on January 1st, just reading it on January 1st and yes, you can start on the 31st and be reading into the New Year.

I’ve chosen First Impressions: A Novel of Old Books, Unexpected Love, and Jane Austen.  I’ve read a book by Charlie Lovett previously, that is, The Bookman’s Tale: A Novel of Obsession and enjoyed it.  So when the book was discussed recently by a book blogger I follow (I follow 65 book bloggers) whose name escapes me, I grabbed it from Amazon.com.

The “First Book of the Year 2015” challenge is to choose a book to start the year.  So I can’t wax-lyrical about it’s joys.  I’ve yet to discover it’s merits.  That said, I love the cover and I’m excited about it’s promise.
