And after my list of 2018 favorites,
as well as my 2018 stats,
here is to a fun wrap up:
Year of reading 2018 part 3
There are a lot of those online, but these are my favorites. The idea is to finish the sentences and answer the questions exclusively with titles I read in 2017.
If you are intrigued by a title, just copy and paste it in the search button, and you will access the review. If nothing shows up, look it up in Goodreads
– When I was younger I was : Carnegie’s Maid
– People might be surprised to discover that I’m: The Clockmaker’s Daughter
– I will never be: The Lady Killer
– At the end of a long day I need: Little Culinary Triumphs
– Right now I’m feeling: Framed
– Someday I want to: Look For Her
– At a party you’d find me: Unsheltered
– I’ve never: (been) Minced, Marinated, and Murdered
– I really don’t enjoy: Walking the Bones
– In my next life I want to be: The Song Peddler of the Pont Neuf
– If you could go anywhere, where would you go: The Shadow Land
– Your favorite form of transportation: Armada
– Your best friend is: The Book Artist

[Glacial weather – though the book was published in English as: A Climate of Fear]
– Favorite time of day: While Beauty Slept
– If your life was: Fear
– What is life to you: A Moveable Feast
– Your fear: Democracy in Chains

[The night is never complete – no English publication as far as I know]
– How I would like to die: Visiting Tom
– My soul’s present condition: The Face of Another
I began the day with Alex Rider.
On my way to work I saw Nymphéas Noirs [Black Water Lilies]
and walked by The Bridge on the Drina,
to avoid L’armée furieuse [The Ghost Riders of Ordebec]
but I made sure to stop at The Piano Shop on the Left Bank.
In the office, my boss said : Go
and sent me to research 99 Ways to Tell a Story.
At lunch with Monet, Itinerant of Light,
I noticed (a) Skeleton Key
under (the) Portrait of a Murderer,
then went back to my desk, Un peu plus loin sur la droite
[A Little Further on the Right – though the book was published in English as:
Dog Will Have His Day].
Later, on the journey home, I bought The Master Key
because I have The Body in the Casket;
then settling down for the evening, I picked up The Provocative Colette
and studied The Letters to Saint Olympia
before saying goodnight to The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly.
I have so much fun with this every year!

I agree, sounds fun. But right now, having posted my year end favorites list (http://keepthewisdom.blogspot.com/2019/01/top-25-books-read-in-2018.html), I am so over 2018!
