You're probably wondering why over the last three or four weeks I vanished from the blogosphere without any proper explanation.
I don't really know myself, to be honest. I guess I'm actually busier during the summer than I am during term-time, and I've been too busy writing/holidaying/et cetera to sit down for a vaguely long period of time to write a book review.
Here are some reasons for my absence:
- I've been reading hardly anything lately. It took me about three weeks to read The Fountainhead, and I've been reading pretty slowly since. The books I have read haven't really been the sort of things that I review here, so I haven't had an awful lot to talk about.
- I'm starting college in a couple of weeks, so it's been kind of chaotic to prepare for all that. I haven't been to school since I was eight, so imagine I might not be blogging awfully regularly over the next few weeks while I adjust to my schedule and everything.
- I was on a residential orchestra course for a week, and although it was awesome it meant that I was starved of internet for 168 hours. (Actually, that doesn't sound like very many...but it was, believe me.
- Since the start of the summer I've been working on a novella. I'd really love to have the first draft done by the end of the year, before NaNoWriMo if I can, so I've spent quite a lot of time working on that.
So, we'll see how it goes. Over and out.
