Welcome, Postcardians, to another celebration of a year in La-La Land! Have a metaphorical seat by the imaginary fireplace, and enjoy a virtual taste of my grandmother’s gingerbread mushrooms!
* Overview *
First, a big Thank You!!! to everyone who followed Postcards in 2018, and for all the likes and comments!
2018 has been a particularly important year for me, as I celebrated Lithuania’s 100th Independence anniversary by exploring the fairy tales, poetry, and music of the Baltic nation, and attending the week-long Song and Dance Festival in July.
I also spent the first half of the year praising an LGBT-friendly parody of the vice president’s children’s book, awwing at modern Meet Cutes, and vicariously attending beach-side mermaid shows.
The latter half of the year was a little tougher. A depression flare-up prompted me to search for new comfort reads (Percy Jackson and A Discovery of Witches are on my 2019 TBR list, but I’ll share a few of the other comfort reads I’ve discovered on pg 2) and fun bookish podcasts to cheer me up.
It’s time for a look back at my favorite reads of 2018. This year, I’ve divided my Year-End Review into a Nice List and a Naughty List, because I thought it would be fun to share not only the best books, but also my top DNFs (Books I Did Not Finish) of 2018.
On Dasher! On Dancer!…
