Robert Galbraith’s newest Cormoran Strike book, Career of Evil was released yesterday (woop woop – I LOVE those books) and to celebrate the publisher teamed up with The Crime Vault to create a bespoke detective experience for fans. Of course I entered and amazingly I won! I had to turn up at a location in Hackney at the right time and solve a mystery as quickly as possible. The top two teams would win a dedicated and signed copy of Career of Evil.
While I love any and all signed books and have a collection threatening to overwhelm me, this was a particularly epic prize because Robert Galbraith is the pseudonym of none other than JK Rowling. Safe to say I really, really wanted to win.
Over the past two weeks I have actually been in Japan, one of the most amazing countries I have ever been to. I stayed in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka before flying back home (something I was very reluctant to do). So while I will be posting non-travel stuff too, the bulk of my posts for a while are all going to be about Japan. Starting with my first evening in Japan when Sister and I went to explore Harajuku.
