Musing Mondays–Excited!!

This week’s question asks:

What book(s) are you most excited about right now? (it can either be something you’re currently reading, or something you just bought, or a book/books that are soon to be published).

After I read the question for today, I couldn’t help myself and had to participate.  I have been waiting FOREVER for the next installment of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.  FOREVER!! 

This series reminded me why I loved epic fantasy.  It also reminded me why I detest reading a series before it is completed.  The wait for new novels in A Song of Ice and Fire has been particularly frustrating, because I enjoy the series so much.   When I saw the release date announcement, I tried not to get all excited, because the date is an ever shifting moment that keeps spiraling out into the future.  But now I can’t help myself.  I am geeked to get my hands on A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, though I am wondering where I will find the time to re-read the rest of the books before July 12th!

    I agree that it’s frustrating reading series before they’re done. I think of that with manga. I’m going to be caught up with Vampire Knight soon and it’ll kill me to wait for the next one.

    @Alison – I don’t seem to mind so much with manga, unless the series gets canceled. Then I am beside myself. It is frustrating to invest that much time into something, and then not get to read the ending! (Two Flowers for the Dragon and DC Comics, I am looking right at you)

    I’m also looking forward to this one! For this series, I made an exception to my rule against reading books until a series is complete. I find myself now hoping that the author doesn’t die before he has time to complete the full series. Doesn’t he still have 3 books to go still, assuming that they aren’t so long they have to be split in two?

    You’re not the only one! I was so happy to see that release date too! 🙂 It’s like Xmas – with this plus the HBO series to look forward to
