Every avid reader has a series they just love and cannot wait to finish. The waiting, even though it’s usually only a couple of years, seems like forever. You obsessively check Goodreads to check and re-check the expected publication date, you talk to your fellow fans, you stalk the author’s blog just to see if they’ve made any announcement pertaining to their next book. Yes folks, that’s the level of obsession I’m talking about.
I’m really only that way with a few books. Most notably, The Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin (which is not going to be released this year, argh!), Hidden Huntress by Danielle L. Jensen, Prophecy of the Betrayed Heir by Diantha Jones (hurry up, you crazy busy lady!) and whatever book comes after Shadow Dragon in the Shapeshifter Dragon series by Marc Secchia. I actually have rapport with the last two authors so I can playfully bug them once in a while but being able to do that makes the wait for traditionally published books even harder now. I can’t exactly email George R. R. Martin and ask when he’s finally going to write his next book!
So what books are you super looking forward to? Why? How long have you waited?
