Booking Through Thursday: Anticipation

What’s the last book you were really EXCITED to read?

And, were you excited about it in advance? Or did the excitement bloom while you were reading it?

Are there any books you’re excited about right NOW?

It was definitely A Storm of Swords; you cannot imagine the self-control it’s taking me not to just tear through A Feast for Crows and A Dance of Dragons right now. I’m usually excited beforehand; I think In Great Waters was the last book where I got to the point where I wanted to read it when I wasn’t reading it.

At the moment, I’m excited to start on The Silmarillion today—I finished Hard Times last night—and Kushiel’s Dart, because my hold on it came in yesterday and only the library at home has a copy of it. Also, I love and adore Jacqueline Carey.

  1. Oooh, your description of the desire to tear through a book makes me want to read that series even more! I just got A Game of Thrones from the library and it’s waiting to be read. Now I’m even more excited knowing you enjoyed it so much!! 🙂

  2. Excellent! I just finished listening to Part one of Book one of the of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series . I’d never heard of it before the television series, but I am totally addicted! I have to read/listen to them all!

  3. I was excited to get a copy of Dune by Frank Herbert and I was excited while I read it. I got excited reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, only to be disappointed by American Gods.

    More recently, I got excited and wrapped up with the book Mad Skills (which is still the best new book I’ve read this year), but I was disappointed to varying degrees by The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss and Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. Still really looking forward to The Alloy of Law and the next Stormlight Archive book, both by Brandon Sanderson.

  4. The last book I actually waited for and looked forward to was Michael Moorcock’s The Coming of the Terraphiles, because it was a Moorcock book with Doctor Who in it. It didn’t turn out to be anything like I expected, but I enjoyed it tremendously.
