  1. I always enjoy your mix of reading! Room is one of the few books that I read (at the very end of last year) but didn’t have much to say about either. I think I just read it too quickly to think!

    1. I guess that’s the problem with hyped/well-publicised/prize-grabbing books – I want to just read them. And then when this one was over, I really didn’t want to write about it.
