The End

No, not the end of the blog, but of Harry Potter. I read the last three books back to back and was all magic potions, jinxes and polyjuice.

That was a few weeks ago and since then I’ve ‘rediscovered’ books. I’ve read Marish Pessl’s Special Topics in Calamity Physics – fun, but not quite The Secret History promised on the back cover. Went back to Suite Francaise which was stunning and then reading all the info at the back sad and tragic. There seem to be lots of books I’ve started this year and not finished, so now I’ve started The Inheritance of Loss (I so love that title) again and whereas before I thought it was dense and hard to understand, now its beautiful and clever and witty and wise.
