Beginning Again

My school career is over. Crikey, that’s a surreal thing to write!

Sure, I have graduation this week, but the crux of it – hilarious lessons, sharing memes with my favourite teachers, long conversations on the hill, knocking on the staff room door for anything really – that’s all over.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (DM – this one’s for you!)

A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel (thanks TJ for the recommendation – nothing like a bit of historical fiction!)

On the Road by Jack Kerouac.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway (again – finally!) 

Palmeras en la Nieve by Luz Gábas.

El Tiempo Entre Costuras by María Dueñas (again – por siempre!)

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr .

So. June 27. Let’s begin… N
