Circe - Madeline Miller

I can see why people liked this so much. It's got its hooks in me.

The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock - Imogen Hermes Gowar

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.
