I've started more than one book this month for the year in books, only for them to be abandoned along the wayside. Darwin was a library book, and I couldn't renew it as someone else had requested it, I started Northanger Abbey and read a few chapters sitting in the sun on a wall in between work times, but I found myself struggling to love it, and time is too precious to read something just because you should finish it.
Which makes my final choice feel fortuitous, as time is a central theme.
"In 1972 two seconds were added to time. Were they to blame for what happened next?"
"two seconds can change everything,
and if your world can be shattered in an instant,can time also put it right?
I shall be honest and admit I was looking for another book by the same author, but this one, with a cover of spirals and dandelions which I both adore was definitely a case of choosing a book by it's cover. and you know what? it was a good choice.
