I hate quitting. I especially hate quitting a project that I've made a fuss about completing, but reading slumps don't care about your GoodReads goals. Hopefully I'll return and finish someday.

I found this book to be enjoyable in a detached sort of way. Its defining feature is that it has no hero and so relies on humor and drama instead. Whether or not this is sustainable for 700 pages is for another reviewer (ideally my future self) to decide.

But [Amelia] is not a heroine, there is no need to describe her person; indeed I am afraid that her nose was rather short than otherwise, and her cheeks a great deal too round and red for a heroine...

Despite Miss Pinkerton's horror at women who dance in operas, their music is my go-to soundtrack to reading.

My pages are frozen but the view is worth it! Nothing like a stream gurgling nearby to enhance the reading experience. #aroundtheyearin52books
