This week I read a book that I liked pretty well. It was by and author I really like and at first I was pretty excited to read it.
When I got my copy, though, I had a hard time starting the book--no matter how many 5 star reviews I read. I couldn't figure out why I had a hard time with it.
I finally started reading it and I realized why I was having trouble getting started.
I don't love books set on foreign soil.
I can't figure out why, but when I can't relate to a place in a book I have a hard time reading it.
However, give me a book set in a boarding school and I am all over it!
