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.

The Trench (Meg 2)
The Trench - Steve Alten

This was almost as good as the first. My only complaint is the repetition of facts we already know. Probably 3 times, we are reminded about thermoclines, several times we are told the same facts about the Mariana Tench, and then constantly about the accident that happened in Meg Origins. Constantly. We get it. We know all this. 

 

There's also the exposition thing. It found some sort of lazy ways to explain things, and it goes way over the top. We even have a villain monologue that explained his entire plot.

 

But besides this, I really enjoyed the fast paced plot. Poor Jonas is going to be in therapy for the rest of his life.

People to eat:

1. Celeste, please, because she's a manipulative bitch

2. Benedict, because he's a manipulative psychopath

3. Dr. Maren, just because he's a cocky asshole

4. The Russian, because he's rapey

Gee, who would have thought keeping a 90 foot Meg in a fish tank while charging money to stare at it would end up being bad
