Rowling Fan Guesses Name of Next Cormoran Strike Book

By March 14, 2017Authors, New Releases, News

The last we heard of Cormoran Strike was J. K Rowling telling us late last year that the book was delayed after a busy year with the Harry Potter franchise and Fantastic Beasts, but today on Twitter, Rowling gave a clue to the name and one lucky fan guessed correctly!

Fans are keen to hear news of the new book, and one plucky fan today asked Rowling for a clue to the book name, in which Rowling answered in kind, starting a huge Twitter frenzy. Here’s that first exchange:

The fans went mad and there were many serious, and very funny suggestions, as well as many wondering if Jo would keep her end of the bargain:

 

We rather liked this suggestion, but alas it wasn’t correct:



And as always, JK was as witty as ever:

 

But eventually someone guessed correctly and now we all know that the next Cormoran Strike book will be called Lethal White.

Rowling went on to promise the winner a signed copy of the book, but added that it isn’t finished but we did find out how far through she is, so that’s something at least.

The new book will be the fourth book in the series written under a pseudonym, Robert Galbraith. The series started with The Cuckoo’s Calling, quickly followed by The Silkworm, in 2015 the third book, Career of Evil was released and fans are now awaiting the fourth book. I haven’t awaited a new book so impatiently since Harry Potter! Jo, why do you torture us so?

New Memoir Coming from war-torn Aleppo

By | New Releases, News, Political | No Comments
Every day, we open the newspaper, Twitter accounts, Facebook or news apps and see what’s happening around the world. We are bombarded with information but how much of the ground reality do we really understand? We comfortably sip our tea when someone is dying of thirst in a desert. Our kids run for their school bus when children in some countries have their schools blown apart. At the end of the day, we are eager to get back to the comfort of our homes but many do not have a place to call home.

It is only when we read first-hand accounts of war stories or lives in such areas that we are somewhat moved. But we wouldn’t realize what a mother in Afghanistan, or a child in Gaza goes through. Read More
