Not much going on this week but I did write a blog post about boarding school stories. I read and loved The Year After You by Nina de Pass at the weekend and it made me think of how many boarding school stories I’d read lately.
And then I remembered I could make a list on bookshop.org (affiliate link) for them. This website is designed to support independent book shops in the UK. If you buy direct from a book shop’s page they get all the profits, so it’s a much better deal than Hive. I think if you just buy by searching or via a non-shop affiliate, shops get a small chunk of the overall site profits. So please feel free to use the book shop lists rather than mine. They need all the help they can get right now.
I also read Followers by Megan Angelo this week for one of my remaining Popsugar prompts. This might sound a bit ironic coming from a blogger, but I don’t like the whole influencer culture, I think it has ruined Instagram and people want to just be famous for sharing products. So I felt this book spent far too much time on the past timeline where they were becoming influencers, but I quite liked the future timeline, which was a bit Truman Show for the 21st century. I also think she would have been better off not trying to explain the how of things, because some of it didn’t make a lot of sense and it didn’t need explaining for the plot to work.

Just seen that Boris wants to bring back imperial measurements in shops. Presumably so that no one can tell that things cost twice as much.Follow
