The totally amazing and incredible Sheila from Book Journey is once again organizing the First Book of The Year 2020 edition. This is the seventh year that she is hosting this.
This is my 7th year of taking part in the First Book of the Year and I have to say its so much fun trying to figure out what book I want to start a new year off with. The book can be a re-read, a guilty pleasure read or it can be basically anything you want to begin 2020 with.
I am going to be entering the new year with this:
Siblings Sam and Ilsa Kehlmann have spent most of their high school years throwing parties for their friends–and now they’ve prepared their final blowout, just before graduation.
The rules are simple: each twin gets to invite three guests, and the other twin doesn’t know who’s coming until the partiers show up at the door. With Sam and Ilsa, the sibling revelry is always tempered with a large dose of sibling rivalry, and tonight is no exception.
One night. One apartment. Eight people. What could possibly go wrong? Oh, we all know the answer is plenty. But plenty also goes right, as well…in rather surprising ways.
