January — A Fresh Start

I love starting a new series.  I love reading fantasy novels in the middle of winter.  So what better way to start out the new year than with a new (to me!) fantasy series?!

This has been on my shelf for some time now and I am totally curious to see what everyone has been talking about.  I’ve heard enough about it that there probably won’t be many surprises but I still can’t wait to be swept away to a different world.

Goodreads Group Reads

My groups selected a couple of books I highly recommend to start out the year.  A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khalid Hosseini is heart-breaking, at times brutal, yet beautiful as well.  A story of family and friendship in war-torn Afghanistan.  Personally, this is my favorite of Hosseini’s works.       If you’re looking for a big classic to kick-start 2021, Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy definitely fits the bill!  A word of advice:  be sure to find a copy of character names and their titles/nicknames to keep with you when you start this.  It seemed like every person went by four or five different names and I found it pretty confusing at first!  Plus, we’re not in school anymore, it’s perfectly okay to have a cheat sheet!!   😀
