Halloween ? No, I think it’s already Christmas !

24 Ott

Today I woke up with the interphone ringing … I run down the stairs still in my pajamas and then I opened the door. A smile broke across my face. A big package for me ! I was expecting a package, yes, from Amazon.uk, but not until October, 27th ! So, it was a big surprise. I thanked the carrier with sparkling eyes and then I rushed back into the house, knowing perfectly what I would see but still … I opened the cardboard box with impatience, the heart pounding in my chest. Yes, all the three new books were there, in their magnificent covers. (And I paid less then £10 for each one!)

Well, I am still a bit disappointed because they’re here, in my shelves, but I could not pass my time with them, not so much. The everyday life is a bitch. Also, I have a stack of books that I AM READING already, and I have to finish them first. I am almost finished with The Buried Giant, by Kazuo Ishiguro. A strange, interesting, slow reading, a little frustrating but also very profound in his thoughts. Like a river, with a calm but misty surface. I will talk about The Buried Giant very soon.

I am also listening to the audiobook of The Golem and the Jinny by Helen Wecker. I wish I had also the book or the ebook with me, but the Audible performance is great as usual, and I can’t wait to know how it will end. Too many point of views, and yet the story is so vivid, so detailed the setting, so incredible and realistic the characters, that I find myself in awe.

Other books in my reading list are :

  •  Roverandom by JRR Tolkien
  •  Trigger Warning : short fiction and disturbances by Neil Gaiman
  • S. by J J Abrams and Doug Dorst ( if you are reading it, maybe you could take a look here )

I wish to have the strenght to give precedence to them, but I know that it will nearly impossible to resist to the call … See below, that is what’s expecting me since this morning :

my hardcovers copies of HP illustrated ed. by Jim Kay, Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

So, yes, finally I hug my copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay. I love this book so much, I love Jim artworks and I can’t wait to reread Harry Potter, this time in english.

Say Hi to Career of Evil, the number 3 in the Cormoran Strike novels ! I have read the first pages from the official website of Robert Galbraith, and I was left horror-struck ! I fear for Robin, really !

Finally, Keep Calm and … Carry On ! Baz and Simon, their fights, possibly their love story. A lot of magic is in the air ….
