Regular readers of my blog may have noticed that my rate of posting has slowed recently. This is because I have read a couple of books I didn’t award enough stars to post about here and also I have had the ‘flu for a week now.

My last book review seemed a bit sparse to me and this is because I could not find the words to express how much And The Mountains Echoed touched me. The central theme about two siblings separated resonated with me. However, any separation I have with siblings is voluntary and not as a result of war or poverty. This is very sad indeed and I am far from proud of the circumstances. I own my part in our current estrangement and if I’m being ruthlessly honest, the ball has always been in my court. If only I had the courage to act.

I hope my usual reading rate resumes soon and I look forward to telling you more about the books I have read.
