January's Book of the Month!

I'm very excited to start doing a book of the month! I will post a book at the beginning of each month to read and at the end of the month, if you want to discuss it, I will host a book discussion on Facebook. Some books may be ones I have read and really liked, while others will be as new to me as they are to you.
So, let's get this started! The first book I chose is one I've been dying to read and I'm excited that I finally will be able to! Here it is...


"What if you could live again and again, until you got it right? 

On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war. 

Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can -- will she?

Darkly comic, startlingly poignant, and utterly original -- this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best."

Sounds pretty awesome right?? I'll post more about "The Book of the Month" in the coming days/weeks.
