I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.

I loved this book quite a lot, every bit of it, until about 20 pages before the end, when I began to dread that I was about to hate the ending so so so much.


Ten pages until the end, I knew I was going to hate the ending, and therefore, the book would be forever spoiled. 


And then it wasn't. The dread lifted in the last five pages. And I loved it again. We are OK, Eilis and I.
