Is this the most exciting bookish news this year?

Margaret Atwood has announced that a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale will be released around the world in September 2019 the announcement was made on her Twitter feed:

“Everything you’ve ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we’ve been living in.”

The new book will be called The Testaments and will be set 15 years after Offred steps into the van at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale. I for one will be desperately counting down the days until release.

Let us know if you are as excited about this release as we are.

  3. The only book I’ve ever pre-ordered is the final Harry Potter. I can tell you right now, this will be the second!

  4. Excited? More like terrified. The Handmaid’s Tale finished on a conclusive even if ambiguous note, and I don’t see the point in reviving it all.
