Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is more like several: “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?”
Oooh, good questions! To the first couple, the last book that I was all “omg why is this book not in my hands RIGHT MEOW” about was One of Our Thursdays is Missing, which feeling was only heightened by the fact that I saw it come into the library about a day or two before it made it into my grubby little hands. And it was totally worth it.
The last book that I was excited about while reading it was A Visit from the Goon Squad, which I was vaguely familiar with as “that awesome book that won some schmancy prize or other” but otherwise clueless about. Then I started reading it, and I was just so smitten with the way Egan built the book that I couldn’t put it down. Love.
What am I excited about right now? Well, I have a whole stack of books sitting here at home, but none of them are really crying out to me. And I am terrible at keeping track of when books come out, so I’m not sure what’s out in the near future. I did hear the other day that there will be another Flavia de Luce mystery coming out for the holidays, and while I won’t quite be first in line to get that book, I am definitely planning on reading it!
What are you guys excited about? What should I be excited about, if only I had any idea it was happening?
