Booking through Thursday – Anticipation

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme in which we answer a question about books or reading.

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?

I just read Room by Emma Donoghue and was pretty excited about it, not over the moon excited, but excited. I was curious in advance and more and more excited as I was reading. The same happened recently with The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint. The last book I can remember being over the moon with is Among Others by Jo Walton. It’s just amazingly wonderful. I started out curious because of raving reviews from people I trust, and ended up loving it. The last time I can remember eagerly waiting for a book, grabbing it and reading it the moment I could lay my fingers on it, was when I read All Clear by Connie Willis last year. I’m still excited. At the moment I’m reading The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I started out curious and by now (about 2/3 through it) I’ve long since gotten excited. Mostly I’m curious about books and the excitement comes when I’m reading. The eagerly awaited ones are usually in series that I love or by authors that I adore.

  1. A couple of those sound really interesting (on no, I think my TBR pile just grew, lol).

  2. I haven’t heard of most of those but I’m off to check them out. Anything a book blogger can’t put down is at least worth looking into. Maybe I’ll even find my next exciting read! 🙂

  3. I too, haven’t heard of any of the books, but may need to check to see if my library has any and borrow them. Glad you enjoyed them anyway.

    Thanks for the visit today.

  4. I have Room on my list “to read”. I here people either love it or hate it. I can’t wait to find out for myself.

  5. I have heard of those books, but I haven’t read them yet. I really want to read Room, though. Thanks for stopping by my BTT.

  6. I want to read Room. I’ve heard many good things about it.
