The Reading Book Post, January 4th

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the first Reading Book Post of the year! Although the mood is still festive, I'm slowly returning to the routine. But before everything else, I'm preparing the 2016 Reading Challenge. I figured that apart from the themed reads, I could do a more general all-year-long challenge in order to diversify even more my reading habits. I hope that some of you will feel like trying it. Look for the details in a later post. For now, let's see what happened in the literary world the previous week.

  • Some time ago, I told you that Mark Millar was searching for new talent for the Millarworld Annual 2016. Now, he has finally announced the winners! The annual will be published in late 2016.

  • We have finally some news about The Winds of Winter and, unfortunately, they are not what we were hoping for! George R. R. Martin announced that there is still much to be done and the publication of the sixth book of the popular series will be delayed. I guess we'll have to wait!

  • There is Japanese bookstore with a unique concept! It only sells one book title, which changes weekly. In this way, the bookstore itself turns into an exhibition for each one of the selected books. The first book of 2016 is the photo album by Maseru Tatsuki called Fish-Man

  • Cover Reveal! See now the cover of Emma Straub's upcoming novel. The book is called Modern Lovers and it will be published on May 31, 2016. I love this colour!

  • Some controversial news. An annotated edition of Mein Kampf, or My Struggle as it translates, written by Adolf Hitler will be released in January for the first time in Germany after 70 years. The question here is whether it should.

  • Today's quiz is for all of you who love The Bridget Jones's Diary. If you've watched it, like me, multiple times, then you will find it a really easy one. So, who said it: Daniel Cleaver of Mark Darcy? Take the quiz and let my know how you did! I missed one, maybe I should re-watch them :)   


  1. Really interesting news in the bookish world! I know many people will be disappointed in the delay for the Game of Thrones novel, but that just means more time for me to catch up :)

    1. That's right! We are waiting for so long for its publication!

  2. It can be really hard to get back to a regular schedule. The idea of a book store that only sells one book is interesting. I am not sure that I would like that since I really want some variety!

    1. I can't even imagine how this bookstore is, but it's definitely an interesting idea!

  3. The cover of 'Modern Lovers' looks really pretty! And every one seems to be talking and lamenting about delay of the sixth book from George R. R. Martin. I am yet to join this club as I have neither read this series nor I have watched the show.But, I do want to get into this series and also, the Outlander series. I don't know when but I hope soon enough.

    Thanks for keeping readers updated on the news from literary world :)

    1. Thank you so much!

      I want to read the Outlander series so badly, but I always hesitate! Maybe I'll take the first step in 2016 :)
