It's Monday...What Are You Reading? January 1

People!  It's 2018!  Well, it might possibly be 2017 when you read this as I'm scheduling it for 9pm Pacific Time on New Year's Eve...but close enough.  Now that we've survived 2017, I hope you all have a blessed 2018.

First things first.  This year, I'm once again participating the First Book of the Year event with Sheila at Book Journey.  I've done this in the past but, since I missed it last year, I was excited to join it again.  So, my first book of 2017 is....

As soon as I saw when Sonali Dev's A Distant Heart was to be released, I knew that I would have it as my first book of the year.  The hard part has been waiting to start it!  Maybe I'll start it at 12:01am!

Now, to the rest of what I'm reading:

It's Monday...What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.  Please visit her blog to link up and join the fun!  Also, if you are participating in the meme, please be sure to link to your blog in your comment so that I can visit!

This week's update is pretty simple.  In addition to A Distant Heart, I'm also reading Dangerous Crossing by Rachel Rhys.  I actually hadn't planned to start it before I read A Distant Heart, but I needed something to read!  So far, it's pretty good.  It's a historical thriller, which is just double the fun for me.  "Rachel Rhys" is the pseudonym of another well-known writer, so of course I'm trying to figure out who it could be.  My current guess is JoJo Moyes, but I'm likely to change my mind as I get further into the book.

I spent most of 2017 in a pretty serious reading slump (although I still managed to somehow--miraculously--make my Goodreads goal of 100 books!), but lately I've been getting back into the swing of things.  I have a number of reviews written and scheduled, and it looks like I'll be back to about 2 reviews a week in the new year.

Even though 2017 was very trying for me, I'm optimistic about 2018!  I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
