Booking Through Thursday: Anticipation

Booking Through Thursday:

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?

The last book I remember being very, very excited to read that I was ready to bargain with my aunt if I could buy her copy, was “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. I never managed to pre-order it, or even get in line for any events for it, but I wanted an early copy so badly. My aunt said she was getting one and I begged her to let me read it as soon as she got it, even before she could read it.

I remember reading the last few chapters while we were in a party at her home. No one could talk to me because I was so busy reading. I was waiting for the book even before it came out. I was a fan of the series from the beginning, and I eagerly waited for the next book as soon as I finished the last.

Right now, I don’t think I’m looking forward to reading anything. If J.K. Rowling’s going to be releasing anything new (even if it’s not in Potterverse), I’d gladly read it.

    1. Hi Anya! That must have been fun. Did you wear any costumes? I haven’t attended any events, but I’m a very big fan.

      Just to share: I was waiting in line to get an autograph from Neil Gaiman (another favorite author) when the bookshop’s stock of Half-Blood Prince came in. It was so funny to see Neil sitting there and he was surrounded by Harry Potter books. 🙂

    1. It is. I’m sad there’s nothing more of it (although I’m excited for Pottermore and I got early access!) but I do love re-reading it all. I hope Jo writes something new.
