The Goldfinch: an update

I'm ALMOST done.

 

I really liked it, though at first I was like, holy long-ass descriptions batman.

 

I'm not a big description person, but Donna Tartt's pretty sharp with her assessments so I learned to love Theo's take on most everything.

 

The reason I'm not done? 

 

I'm SO nervous! I don't want to happen what I'm 99% sure is going to happen! Which is a delicious feeling for a reader to have.

 

Also, while I liked The Little Friend well enough, The Goldfinch is really reminding me of why I loved The Secret History so hard and read it a million times.
