Ten Days for Isla!

I really should be in bed right now, sleeping. My day starts pretty early tomorrow or today as I should say. But I cannot.

I read something today (a reply to a comment to be precise) and I can’t stop thinking about it!


Thank you so much Aditi for reminding me!

I have been waiting desperately for that book for ages!!! Stephanie Perkins was depressed for a while so the book got delayed. She’s alright now and that is wonderful!

It’s like, you read a book by an author, you love it, you realize that the book is a representation of the author in the word form and you start caring for the author as a person.

I seldom pray but when I do my prayers include all my favorite authors. They’ve given me parts of themselves and there few such great honors.

Anyway so Isla comes out on 14th August and I read as soon as I can get an ebook. I wish I could buy a book but I’m just a student. Make that, a perpetually broke student.

I still haven’t read the preview of Isla because that won’t be good for me. I tend to get obsessed and lose my ability to think straight till the book comes out or till I get to read it.

I remember well what happened when the third book in Meg Cabot’s Airhead trilogy that is ‘Runaway’ had come out. After numerous failed attempts to procure an ebook including the time when I tried to read the Portuguese version translated into English on Google translate,  I bought the book.

And read it just once.

Complete waste of money if you ask me now. It makes absolutely no sense to buy the last book while not being an owner of the ones that come before.

I was demented and obsessed with it. I practically learnt the first three chapters by heart.

I am so not doing that again.

Instead I’ll wait for the book to come out. Coincidentally, we have a long weekend in India then. I can read it in peace.

I hope Stephanie Perkins doesn’t let us down. When you love an author, you expect a certain level of awesomeness from them. It sucks big time when that level isn’t met.

I read Rainbow Rowell’s ‘Landline’ immediately after it came out. Frankly? Her other three books were better by leaps and bounds. Landline somehow lacked that Rainbow Rowell magic. She has an ability to create fairytales with reality. There was a part in Landline which is not happening in real life.

Even so, if I do make a list of Authors which should definitely be read, it would definitely include Rainbow Rowell.

Maybe I will make a list. I love making lists.

Now I really should sleep. Good night! 

Eeeeeeeeeeeeep! Isla and the happily ever after!!!!
