First Book of the Year 2019

Happy New Year!!

It's 2019. . . Welcome to my first post of the new year . . . and my participation in First Book of the Year . . . hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  This is one of my favorite memes.  As I prepare it, I anticipate a whole year of new books and reading enjoyment.

With that in mind, my first book of the year is Pieces of Happiness by Anne Ostby.  


The book's subtitle is "a novel of friendship, hope and chocolate."  This will also be my first book club book of the year,  and I can't think of a better selection to start off both a new reading year and a first book club discussion of 2019.

I wish you all a happy, healthy new year filled with great books and lots of reading time . . . and now,  I'm going to visit Book Journey to see what other bloggers have selected as their first books of the year.

This First Book of the Year 2019 post was originally composed and/or compiled and published by Catherine for the blog, bookclublibrarian.com.  It cannot be republished without attribution.
