[Book Blogger Hop] January 11th-17th: First Read of 2019

Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.


What is your first book of the year? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)


My first read was Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake, an incredibly moving and hard to read story that deals with really important but dark topics. I absolutely loved it but I will link my review for anyone interested in my full details.

Erica @ Erica Robyn Reads and I exchange one book a year every Christmas and I am SO grateful she gifted this one to me. It'll be one that sticks with me for some time.

I'd love to know what your first read of 2019 was! Hopefully it was a good one! <3

Thanks for reading!


  1. Girl Made of Stars sounds like an interesting read!

    1. I definitely recommend it! It's a heavy one, but it's so important!!

  2. Nice! That's a new to me one. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Thanks for visiting my Book Blogger Hop!

    1. I recommend it!! And of course! Thank you for stopping by mine! :)

  3. So sorry for the late comment back, Heather....:( I've gotten bogged down with preparation of materials for my ESOL classes. Trying to catch up now!!

    I have not heard of this novel before, but I have checked it out on Goodreads, and it does sound VERY intense! I might check it out of the library. I have a hard time with very emotional, tragic reads.... Ironically, I'm currently on "The Hate U Give"!

    How sweet of you and Erica to exchange books at Christmastime! I wish I had a bookish friend I could do that with!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and Happy Belated New Year!! <3 :)

  4. NO WORRIES! Life can get in the way of blogging with me alllll the time. You're totally good!! Good luck with your ESOL classes! Are you a professor? That's so cool!

    I definitely recommend it! I loved The Hate U Give so much! I hope you're enjoying it!

    I am so lucky to have Erica as a friend! We've known each other since high school so it' such a fun tradition. <3 <3 Happy New Year! I hope January has gone well so far!
