So, here is my First Book of 2017:
I am reading Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill - this was actually a gift from my husband LAST Christmas (yup, behind as usual), so I am glad I finally got to it. It's an unusual novel, written in short stream-of-consciousness paragraphs, though it is roughly chronological. It's a woman telling the story of her marriage, from when and how they met to the birth of their daughter to struggles they have. Once you get used to the unique format, it is a very engaging story. It's also a very short novel, which is why I wasn't sure I'd still be reading it by today! It's a good book to kick off the year.
What is YOUR First Book of 2017?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
