I really seem to hit a bit of a slump, here having only read one book for this week. Usually I turn to books and reading more when I am stressed or tired – I suppose its escapism – but at the moment I’m struggling to focus for long enough to really get into a story. I have re-read Virginia Woolf’s Orlando another gazillion times. See a pattern here. I’m due to study Daphne du Maurier’s ‘Rebecca’ after my deadline next week, so expect a slight shift.
Anyway, this weeks book was ‘Card School’ by Andrew Milner, which I loved. It isn’t a book I would normally pick from the shelves, but many of the best books are discovered that way. I will post a link to the full review very soon. I will say, that this book get bonus points for being set in a boarding school. Ever since I first read Enid Blyton, I had a bit of an obsession with boarding school, which I suppose never left.
