I have a life just like everyone else’s. On an average weekday I get up, I shower, I get dressed, I drink tea, I eat toast, I brush my teeth, I leave the house, I get on a train, I read, I get off that train and get a tube, I stare out of the tube window, I get off the tube, I walk to work, I switch my computer on, I drink more tea, I do some work, I think about stuff I’d rather be doing, eat some lunch, do some more work and some more thinking about stuff I’d rather be doing, switch my computer off, walk to the tube station, get on a tube, get off the tube and on a train, read, get off the train, walk home, cook some dinner, talk to my flatmates, get out my laptop, do some blogging, watch some TV while sewing my endless patchwork quilt, get changed into my pyjamas, collapse into bed, read, then go to sleep.
So far, so familiar.
But…on Saturday morning my life just got more exciting. The heaviest footed postman you will ever meet pounded his way up the communal stairs and dumped a heavy sounding parcel outside my front door. I sleepily stumbled out to find THIS waiting for me. Ignore the freaky cover and look at the title! Yes my friends, I have a review copy of Her Fearful Symmetry, thanks to the lovely people at Jonathan Cape! And it’s good. So good. I feel smug and privileged and better than everyone else because I am walking around with a book that is not even out yet in my bag. I am reading words other people can’t read yet. And it has taken my life to a whole new level of exciting. I could be a hotshot book reviewer. I’m not, but I could be. Because I have a review copy!
I am not going to sleep until I finish this book. Expect a review very shortly. I love this book so much I am annoyed that I have to be at work because it’s taking up precious time in which I could be FINDING OUT DARK SECRETS! In the meantime I am going to savour every second of my new wonderful existence and flaunt my not available anywhere else copy of this amazing book everywhere I go! Get your preorders in on amazon everyone! You won’t regret it, trust me!
