First Book Of The Year – 2021

First Book 2021

It’s that time of the year!! Sheila is once again hosting First Book and it’s something I look forward to every year. Readers love the anticipation of a good read, don’t they? And I love the idea of starting 2021 with a good book.

Visit Book Journey for details but basically you select a book, take a photo of you with the book, and then email it to her. She includes it in a photo collage and off we go!

Here’s what I’ve chosen:

The Overstory by Richard Powers

The Overstory


What I Do Not Like To See

This is so random but I am reading a book right now, one that I am almost done with and will review shortly, but the main character is really getting on my last nerve and it’s affecting my opinion of the entire book.

Infidelity as a topic is often very readable and most of the time there’s remorse and regret buried in there somewhere but I HATE when you see a character go down that path (blurred lines and all) and somehow we, as readers, are supposed to feel sorry for said character because of circumstances blah blah.

I. Don’t. Like. It.

I am 5% from the end and I am hoping there is some redeeming quality I’ve yet to unearth that will make me understand this character better.
