Here’s a little info on the book if you’re interested!!

From Giller Prize winner, internationally acclaimed, and bestselling author Vincent Lam comes a superbly crafted, highly suspenseful, and deeply affecting novel set against the turmoil of the Vietnam War.
Percival Chen is the headmaster of the most respected English school in Saigon. He is also a bon vivant, a compulsive gambler and an incorrigible womanizer. He is well accustomed to bribing a forever-changing list of government officials in order to maintain the elite status of the Chen Academy. He is fiercely proud of his Chinese heritage, and quick to spot the business opportunities rife in a divided country. He devotedly ignores all news of the fighting that swirls around him, choosing instead to read the faces of his opponents at high-stakes mahjong tables. But when his only son gets in trouble with the Vietnamese authorities, Percival faces the limits of his connections and wealth and is forced to send him away. In the loneliness that follows, Percival finds solace in Jacqueline, a beautiful woman of mixed French and Vietnamese heritage, and Laing Jai, a son born to them on the eve of the Tet offensive. Percival’s new-found happiness is precarious, and as the complexities of war encroach further and further into his world, he must confront the tragedy of all he has refused to see.

Blessed with intriguingly flawed characters moving through a richly drawn historical and physical landscape, The Headmaster’s Wager is a riveting story of love, betrayal and sacrifice. – Random House Canada

Sophie Kinsella Giveway Winner!

I should have posted this yesterday, but it’s been hard for me to get back into “work mode”. I arrived home from Cuba yesterday morning and I have been recovering ever since. But there were two reasons why I was excited to return. One, I got rid of my Blackberry and purchased a new Samsung Galaxy SII hours after I got back, and secondly, I got to announce the winner of the Sophie Kinsella Giveaway!!

 Congratulations @ZaraAlexis!!!!!!

My trip was amazing (thanks for asking). But I did not get to read as much as I would have liked. Apparently relaxing by the pool with a drink in my hand is very time-consuming. But luckily for me, I arrived home to begin my reading week at school, so I have another week to get caught up. So you can be looking forward to a new post coming soon!!

I hope you all didn’t miss me too much while I was away. hehehe
