Thanks so much everyone who sent good wishes and most importantly kept me company while I‘ve been sick - after 3 dr apps, 1 hospital trip for blood tests and 2 calls with nurses I‘m actually not sure what I had?? But I‘m feeling better now and I‘m going to work tomorrow. I missed my office! I love my work and I‘m excited to get back

Thanks to the 10 (10!) books I‘ve read. I‘d have run mad without them, and tagged is one of my new fave novels

Megabooks I am so glad you‘re feeling better!! 💕💕 7d

#jennyis30 @jenniferw88 LGBTQ+ romance

I‘m stretching it a bit to count this as a romance, but I‘m not much of a romance reader and I‘m trying to use tbr books for prompts to avoid buying new ones, but this is the story of a woman who‘s in love with another woman so... kinda? More of a Bildungsroman and not ‘romantic‘ by any stretch of the imagination... and they‘re never ‘together‘ but she was definitely in love and that shit was super queer so

16/15 #jumpstart2020 @Clwojick @Lizpixie

Had me thinking ‘this is why I love reading‘ every page. I already know it will be on my year end lists, this was a mindblowingly perfect novel. The story of a girl living a stifled life (‘senile childhood‘) in a boarding school in Switzerland, falling in love with another girl and not quite telling her, and thinking about her life. Every sentence dripped poetry, just perfect

I‘m having a hard time remembering exactly how I felt about this because I finished it a while ago. It‘s narrated by a girl who spent her youth in various boarding schools, and gets into the strange relationships of a bunch of girls living together in isolation. But it‘s very brief, and, as I often do with shorter works, I struggled to form attachments to the characters.

Yesterday‘s #libraryhaul

I‘m hoping to read the top two and review them on my blog. The bottom is non-fiction that I plan to read to add further context to my #bookclub book, The Moor‘s Account.

Really interesting article by a graphic designer on designing a cover for his favourite book.

Set in post war Switzerland and narrated by an unlikable jaded 14 year old who has spent the last 6 years in boarding school and will be stuck in one till she turns seventeen. She relieves her boredom by obsessing over the new girl. Bit creepy.
