Today marks the final part of my 2018 project! I can’t believe that’s two months passed. I started off this project with 18 books to read, and now I’m done to 5 which I’m very happy with.
I am going to wrap up the project here so I can move onto focusing on some different reading challenges, but I did really enjoy doing this. So let’s into the wrap up!
I Am. I Am. I Am by Maggie O’Farrell
So this is the only one since my last post that I’ve decided to unhaul. I read the first two chapters but decided to not continue. Here’s the thing, as somebody who has also lived with life-threatening medical conditions—this was just plain stressful. I thought that I’d find it relatable in a way (that’s not really the word I want, but the only one I can think of right now!) But as I said, instead it felt triggering and kind of terrifying, to be honest. I did really appreciate O’Farrell’s writing, which is great considering I bought a copy of her newest book, Hamnet, not long ago. I’m very excited to read that one, but this one is one of those books that just needs to go for my mental health.
For the rest of the books I have left, I’m just going to list them. All but one is non-fiction, and I did talk about one of them extensively last time. Anyway, the remaining ones are; Lenny’s Book of Everything by Karen Foxlee, Vivian Maier by Pamela Bannos, Untrue by Wednesday Martin, In Search of Mary Shelley by Fiona Sampson, and Storming the Gates of Paradise by Rebecca Solnit.
So that marks the end of this project…onto the next one!
