Booking Through Thursday - Excited about books

Booking Through Thursday is a book meme with a weekly question.

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?

There are probably a number of books I've been excited about reading but there is nothing quite like the anticipation of a book you are eagerly awaiting to be released. Sure it's frustrating but once you have that book in your hands all that waiting seems worth while.

I had that with "One of Our Thursdays are Missing" by Jasper Fforde which came out earlier in the year. He's one of those authors I always look forward to even though I was less excited about the Thursday Next series than I had been. The good thing about this book was that it was better than I was expecting it to be. So all that waiting was worth it. I am now eagerly waiting the next one.

How many times have I mentioned 1Q84 by Murakami? Does anyone not know I am looking forward to that one? I also recently found out that Douglas Coupland is soon to have another book published. That's another to add to my list.


  1. I agree I am looking forward to reading a few books to be released this month and next month. I'm always looking forward to the new books by my favorite authors as well.

  2. There are always books I am looking forward to read, already published or not. Here is my BTT.

  3. I'm usually more curious than excited by the book I'll read next, the excitement often comes while reading.

  4. I'm always looking forward to reading, just not always a specific book.

  5. I've been meaning to read the Thursday Next series for awhile now. Also heard that 1Q84 is excellent so that's on the list too. There's definitely nothing like that anticipation and of course when a book exceeds your expectations, it's even better!

  6. There are so many books to look forward to reading.

  7. I have a lot of books I am looking forward to as well! Feel free to check out my BTT here.
