I haven’t always given a lot of thought about the first book I will read in the new year, usually I just walk over to my shelf pick up a book at random and start reading. Sometimes it works out well and other times I have abandoned that book and gone to look for something more appealing. This year however I am putting a bit more thought into my first read of the new year and so jumped at the chance to participate in this little event, which is hosted by Sheila from Book Journey.
It took me some time to finally settle on a book. I have a fairly large pile of books I want to read this month but I wanted to pick the right book to start the year off with. Eventually I narrowed it down to a few books to choose from and from there whittled it down to a single book.
Redemption is a book I have wanted to read for a few months now. I picked it up a few times last year but never made it past the first few pages, not because I wasn’t interested in it but because I had review books that stole my attention away from it. Now with the next book in this series coming out in February I need to read Redemption, as well as the next book Forsaken, to catch up on everything before reading the next book.
