2018 was a wild decade, am I right?....oh wait, it was only a year. Damn. I feel like I aged 20 years. 

 

Anyway, here's my list of top reads in 2018. 

 

Rabid

Children of Blood and Bone

The Book of Essie

The Astonishing Color of After 

The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock

Meg

The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

The Road to Jonestown

Power of the Dark Crystal v3

 

I didn't read as much as I would have liked this past year because of being so sick, but I am hoping to do better this go around. I have lots of ideas for monthly themes and I got the popsugar challenge.

 

Possible themes:

Star Trek September 

Ebook Beginning (to start off the year)

Memoirs May

Dinosaur December

 

I have so many books I can't even decide where to start. I will knock out my Dark Crystal book and then read Circe since it was voted the Book of the Year. Then who knows. It's all wide open.

 

 

Happy New Year from chubbygirl and co.

Since I suffer from terrible anxiety/depression, I also have the tag-along of insomnia. So at 4am, I crawled out of bed to huddle in my chair and read 20 pages or so. It's been a sleep-deprived weekend so far. I'm out if my sleeping pills so I guess this is my life until after the holiday and I can get a refill.

Angelica is bitching about how Georgie has to go to such lengths "to get what is rightfully his". He hasn't worked a day in his life and is so spoiled it's incomprehensible to me. These 2 idiots deserve one another. Poor Mr. Hancock, pining after this vapid dummy.

Finally finished with part 1. Still a slow read and I still get a little lost at some of the clothing and food they speak about. But they doesn't detract from the story.

The writing style of this is very Victorian and flowery, so it's taking me longer to make headway. But with that said, I am actually interested in this story. They use a lot of words I don't understand since I'm not very well versed in pre-Victorian London, but I sort of use context clues and Google. Thank God for the internet. 

 

Also, I would have died if I lived in this time. I'm too independent and headstrong to be a meek housewife who entertains.
