if the book you’re reading right now were the last…

•• if the book you’re reading right now were the last book you’d ever read, would you be happy with it?

Relax, I don’t have an answer to that either. I still have too many pages ahead in Klara and The Sun (“Klara e o Sol”), by Kazuo Ishiguro. I already love the book, though.

KLARA AND THE SUN is my first read in partnership with @companhiadasletras. I was chosen to be a member of their reader team for 2021, and I couldn’t be prouder and happier. Not only because Companhia das Letras is a great publisher in Brazil, with great titles and beautiful book designs, but also because it is part of my all-time favorite publishing group, @penguinrandomhouse.

I’m at home with them, and I can’t wait to read the excellent books coming this year.

Now, “Klara and the Sun” is the latest Kazuo Ishiguro novel, released at the beginning of March. And, boy, I’m SO glad Ishiguro is back to his half literary half science-fiction style. The story already hooked me, and it has been a terrific last book of the month.

We’re gonna talk about this novel later, for sure. I will write a full review here or in my blog because I already have a lot to say about it—lots of notes and remarks and thoughts. But I need to finish the book to see if it exceeds or at least fulfills my expectations.

You know when you read a book, and you go, “hmm, it would be interesting if the story went in this direction and then…” And it goes there or surprises us with an even better idea? That’s what I’m waiting for while I enjoy this fascinating narrative.

For now, ☕️ what is your last book of March? And if you can answer the question, tell me: would you be happy if that were your last book ever? And why?
