First Book Of The Year 2017

It seems like I am always struggling with what I want to read on a normal day so you can image how hard it was for me to pick out my first book that I want to start 2017 with? Do you struggle with that as well?

This is my 4th year doing this and I have decided on:

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles, but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.
Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods-a powerful family in the Colonies-and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, his passenger, can find. In order to protect her, Nick must ensure she brings it back to them-whether she wants to or not.
Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home forever.

The reason I am picking this book is because I was asked to review the sequel and my review is suppose to go up on Friday so I knew I had to read this one first. I started this book Friday night and I am still reading this. I am about half way through it.

First Book of 2017

Its hard to believe that this is the 4th year for First Book of The Year. I have participated in every one.

The awesome host of this is Sheila from Book Journey. I am lucky enough to know Sheila IRL and she is exactly like she is online so I have to support her in this and so should you.

I always struggle with what I plan to read for the first book and for me it has to be something amazing because that sets the tone for the year in my opinion.

I’m not quite sure what I want read just yet because I don’t know if I want to pick a book that has been on the shelf forever or something else so for now I am just going to leave you with this reminder to sign up and come back New Years Eve to see what book I will be reading on New Years Day.
