I'm halfway through A Little Life and can confirm all of this.
Not me remembering Jude this morning and coming in here to see you talking about him.
Didn't he already announce that the new one is coming this year?
A real announcement though, official dates.
Yeah, until we have the editor with the stack of papers in front of her, I wouldn’t trust anything he says.
Seems like the author of The Name of the Wind is suffering from the same issues finishing the third (and last?) part of his series.
It’s sort of funny cause I look back at my years of reading Harry Potter and it was basically high school and the first year of uni because they came out so fast.
But the last time I read of Westeros was in the middle of my degree and now I’ve been working for 4 years...? Like, I don’t know if I’ll care when it comes out at this point.
GRRM6 and X6... wonder which will come first. And if we'll still be alive to witness both.
Reading Yasunari Kawabata's 'Snow Country'.
It's very quietly and slowly fucking me up.
I’m reading Big Little Lies and I’m gripped. I love those books that are all you can think about when you’re reading them. I’ve not watched the series yet so excited to see that when I’m finished.
I’ve made my New Years resolution to give up on books easier. Reading can be such a slog when you’re not enjoying a book. I always put such pressure on myself to power through but it just means I read a book slowly for two months. Reading can be such a chore with books like that. Life is too short - from now on, if I’m not enjoying it by like a quarter of the way through I’m giving up and moving on. Big Little Lies is one of those books which makes reading the easiest thing in the world.
I’ve just finished Big Little Lies and I’m blown away. Did NOT see that twist coming !!!
It reminded me of We Need To Talk About Kevin in that we know that some sort of shit went down but we don’t know exactly what...meaning it’s pretty much impossible to put the book down.
Can anyone else recommend some twisty / unreliable narrator stories??
