FINISHED Gone with the Wind (finally, after 3 months!). Now reading Beverly Lewis' The Proving, which was a Christmas present.

now reading The Man Who Invented Christmas by Les Standiford. It's been a fascinating read so far, about how Charles Dickens came to write A Christmas Carol. The movie is good too!

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. In which the devil gets loose in Soviet Russia, where no one believes in him....

Now I've started reading Leia: Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray.

I've challenged myself to read at least 50 books in 2018, or all of my unread lists (digital and print), whichever comes first (which I think at least number 50 if I were to tally them up). So far, I'm on book #3 so I think I have a pretty good shot at making that happen!

Finished Leia. Now on to "Risen", which is the book version of the movie. It's okay. I guess. Wasn't real fond of the movie but I was hoping the book would be better.

Was it any good? My older sister loves Leia, so if it's good, I may have to try to get a copy for her.


Still reading "The Silence of the Lambs." I haven't done much reading in a while -- been busy!

I really enjoyed it. I felt it was a good preface to the Leia we meet in Ep. 4, and why she seemed so fearless. It also includes some references to characters/planets from The Last Jedi, so that's a bonus. I'm hoping to read Bloodlines sometime, because I've heard it's really good as well!
