Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine.The idea of Waiting on Wednesday is to talk about upcoming books that you’re excited about. I am excited to do this feature because it will allow me to look at upcoming books a lot more, and be more aware of what’s new in the world of books.
Title: The Buried Giant
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Check this book out on Goodreads.
The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased.
The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards—some strange and other-worldly—but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another.

Yes, I know this book was released last week. I know. This WoW is more for the fact that this weekend I will be meeting Kazuo Ishiguro. I am so excited and nervous about this. I am also really excited to read the book of course, I recently read another of his books to prepare myself for meeting him and am only made more nervous by how amazing his writing is. I’ve been a fan of Ishiguro’s for years now and I am just so thrilled and thankful to Random House of Canada for providing me with this opportunity.
I’ll maybe blog about the reception as I did when I met Gayle Forman and Jamie Blackley.
What book are you looking forward to? Let me know in the comments!
