Sorry this is a little late. I did a five-hour round trip into the heart of Wales yesterday/Sunday (that was until I remembered I’d take off my Apple Watch 30-minutes into the return journey and did a u-turn to collect it).
The trip was to help clear-out some stuff and while we were going that I came across books like these…
Finding The Owl Service was quite spooky as I’d emailed Rob from Adventures with Words a list on Saturday making comment on how much I didn’t like that book after reading it for GCSE English. I had though for forgotten how many children’s books I’d read/been given. To be fair I also love Angela Carter, Yeats and Derek Walcott because I’ve studied them.
So yesterday was nostalgic and a little spooky.
I did manage 3/5 reviews this week. In my defence the ones I’ve not written as rereads of Jingo by Terry Pratchett and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling and I’ve been thinking about re-reads in general and might save them for later.
This is only because I’ve just officially starting re-reading Clariel by Garth Nix. I love it but I’d forgotten how dark it was. I know it’s a book about death but it does show you how dark it can be.
Do have any books that you now love/hate after studying them?
