  2. That’s an eclectic list of books you’ve read, very impressive. I’m going to explore the ones I’ve never heard of now out of curiosity, which means my wish list will explode just as I cleared some books off of it lol.

    • Hmm to be honest, while I enjoyed Wolf Hall, I haven’t been tempted to read the other books in the series. I would say that both books are kind of slow-burners , if that makes sense? I didn’t actively enjoy The Children’s Book, but it is one of those books that has really stayed with me and impacted the way that I read and think about books and art. I’m sorry I am probably not being helpful in pushing you over any edges!
