Here’s this weeks question hosted at Crazy for Books, found right here.
“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”
Okay so I’m stuck in the middle of this humongous list of books for 2011 right? And, like, that’s totally awesome and everything – but. BUT that means there’s a HUMUNGOUS list of books I want to read that aren’t on the list like right now! Murphy’s law states the only reason I want to read these so badly is because I can’t. Who name’s their kid Murphy anyway?
My first pick to put down here would have been A Dance With Dragons except for two things; a) I don’t actually have it in my hot little hands yet as I’m waiting for paper back, b) I’m so for sure reading it this year screw the mass amounts of other novels hah! So I had to rack my brains for a book in my house, not on the list, that I am truly and honestly pining over. [And I shall refrain from saying A Feast For Crows ect et all as whenever a new book in a series comes out I usually re-read or scan all of the preceding ones to jog the ol' nog due to some people (cough! GRRM, cough!!) taking like a decade to get to the next book.]
My actual choice! Is….. huh. Okay so I haven’t gotten a new book this week. I’ve got Crime & Punishment, Bleak House, and Oliver Twist all waiting in my iTunes for a good listen, but none of those are calling my name or anything. I’ve got a dusty old copy of Johnathan Strange & Mr. Norrell that looks positively enticing as I pass by it everyday. But I’ve had that for a couple of years. And finally, I am dying to buy and read Beatrice and Virgil, A Dance With Dragons, (absolutely had to say it again, sorry), and The Wise Man’s Fear. But I am stoically holding off. (Good use of vocab, stoic, eh?eh?).
And Now! As I was wiki-ing the exact name of good ol Rothfuss’ latest book I was absolutely chuffed to see his amazing t-shirt! So I’m sharing. Enjoy your amazing day, awesome weekend, and adventurous month. Alright?
