In the meantime, when is the next book going to be published???

I didn’t realise that they’d be adapting each novel in three parts or that we’d be getting more than one – the build-up passed me by, I only saw the one trailer once. Also I’ve only read each novel the once, so my memory of the books may be hazy. My reaction to the adaptation, on the whole, is positive.

I will be watching bits of the adaptation of ‘The Silkworm’ through my fingers.

Huh, the number of fics up at AO3 has not exploded - I was expecting there to be slash by now. Perhaps after the episodes have finished airing/when it airs in the US... On the other hand, who knows if there will ever be icons.

I'm not going to discuss the thing that happened in the UK today, because this is a place to express my fannishness and talk about popculture for me, beyond wondering if Rowling will be able to resist using this period as a setting for one of her Cormoran Strike mysteries, eventually. Anyway, I finished 'The Silkworm' by Robert Galbraith AKA J.K. Rowling last night. I was fairly gripped by the story, so I hope I can get across the third book soon (but I'd like to have it in hardback, as I've done with the frist two so it depends on how quickly I come across a second-hand copy, really.)

I finally read The Cuckoo's Calling– let’s say it took me a while to get over The Casual Vacancy, which I didn’t like at all. I enjoyed it. What I ask of murder mysteries is that I enjoy the ride, that I like or admire the investigators and that it's not too relentlessly grim or gory. I play along, but not too hard and not too well at guessing whodunit – I only started guessing right with Christie after reading a ton of her books. Read more... )
