  1. I’m meant to be reading The Slap, and I’m not finding it hard going exactly, just not flowing, and despite having days off I keep finding excuses to do anything but read. I love it when a book takes over but it’s generally SF or regency romance not whatever worthy work I’m attempting to review. Normal People was the big exception.
    I live in a family of women with ‘problems’, when I’m not in iso, and some of your excerpts sound a bit glib, not that I ever know what to say myself.

  2. Oh what a relief to find I’m not the only book lover who doesn’t have her head buried in a novel for hours. Like you, I just snatch moments when I can so it takes me a long time to get through a book…

    • It will be in my top books for the year. I am planning a further post about how the author chose to represent mental health, but it will contain spoilers, so you might want to read the novel first.
