Book reviews

If you are like me, then term time is a time for rereading class texts, planning, marking, displays and generally anything else that can keep you from being a voracious reader. This to me is a critical situation: I have always dived into other worlds, forgetting the stress of the job/ life/ relationships (delete as appropriate). Particularly when I was a Head of English, I never found the time to read at all until the holidays wound themselves around me and afforded the luxury of curling up and enjoying something different.

More than anything, I love when a friend recommends a book to me; they are usually quirky, have narrators who are living through their own existential crisis and make me ponder when I will actually get round to writing that play that has been stuck in my head for years (now, actually).

For all of you short on time, here are some of English With Ease’s reviews.
