BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

WELLLLL - WE'RE WAITING WEDNESDAY--Oh! And We're Having a CONTEST-CONTEST


Yeah, yeah, I know it's NOT Wednesday  but just to get those Caddyshack juices flowing and get you thinking here's a 5 second clip from YouTube.


 As  lovers of Caddyshack, this classic line has been used around our home for years so it seemed very appropriate to use it for that favorite book I’m waiting on.

We are all waiting for certain books that we feel like we can’t live without. For me it is any number of next ones in a favorite series but there are few that give you that WELLLLL -WE'RE WAITING  feeling that we all had while anxiously waiting on the next new Harry Potter or Twilight book. Now those, I could have told you how many days, hours and minutes till they were available.
I was aware several months back that Meyer was releasing two new books in her Host series- The Soul and The Seeker, to be released some time in 2012.  These two are ones that I get that WELLLLL- WE'RE WAITING feeling for. Normally, I’d show the covers but other than Literary Escapism.com’s reference to these books, I’ve seen no other mention of them.
Usually I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to what is coming out or when as I tend to collect 3 to 4 in a series and then read them back to back in a marathon reading session so it really is not a GOTTA HAVE situation.
I buy them and they lay on a shelf till another two or three in the series is released (which usually means years).
What book are you having that WELLLLL- WE'RE WAITING  feeling for that won’t be out for a while yet?
Oh, and if you want the best source I’ve found to what’s coming out and when, check out Literary Escapism’s list of paranormals and fantasy reads that I use.
http://literaryescapism.com/info/releases.html
Oh, and one more thing, did I mention that I’m having a contest later on and anyone who tells me what their WELLLLL- WE'RE WAITING  book is will be entered in it? So, be thinking about it. I'll be doing it with Rafflecopter as it has worked out so well.

I feel like I have been waiting forever for sequels to The Host and think we may see the movie before we read the next two books. I can't wait to read the sequel to Nevermore by Kelly Creagh, Enshadowed. As of right now, it's my most anticipated read of 2012.

I've been like that about The Inheritance by Christopher Paolini but I'm not desperate for it.

I am after Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent by Veronica Roth. Soooo desperate!

layen said...

I'm waiting for the next book in The Iron Druid Chronicles. 2012 seems a long time to wait for a sequel.

I'm waiting for the next Alex Craft by kalayna Price, i'm very curious to read about it !

Lieder Madchen said...

I can't wait for Pandemonium, sequel to Delirium. That ending is driving me insane!

Blue Shedevil said...

Truly generous contest and I love the bunny pic. Awwww. I'm a series slut and I like to have everything in order before I start a new one. It's an OCD thing. I really want to give Eve Silver's "Otherkin" series a spin. Thanks for being a sweetie!

Lisa Richards/alterlisa said...

Me too! My hubby just can't understand WHY I can't read a book in a series unless I've got them all or at least enough to feast on (3 or 4). And never could I read one out of order, that's just not... just not...
just not... (my mind can't even wrap around that thought) right!

Dani @ Refracted Light said...

My "Gotta Have it!" book is The Clockwork Prince. Thanks so much for the giveaway Lisa! :)

bookaholic said...

I am waiting for Beautiful Chaos(Caster Chronicles #3) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.Really excited about it!

June M. said...

There are soooo many books I am waiting on. The Larissa Ione series for LOD, the next won't be out till the end of November, and then I don't even want to think about how long I will have to wait fot the 3rd book. Lynsay Sands has a book that is the 3rd of a trilogy that won't be out until next Spring and the first 2 came out in Jan and Feb of this year. LONG wait for the 3rd book.

Krystal said...

I would pretty much die for After Obsession or the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer...I would love to read and review these to for my own site and I just love the synopses. I'm sure you've read them, aren't they awesome?

winnie said...

One book that will be released in two months and that I really want is The Bite Before Christmas anthology because two of my favourite authors are in it, taking up half of the book each. So each will have a fairly long novella for me to read :)

I am impatiently waiting for Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale. Austenland has just finished filming and I think it is slowing down the midnight book release.

One book that i can't wait to read is:

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Ever since I saw the US cover I have been completely in awe of this book. I need to own it. Plus I have become totally obsessed with dystopian books and follow the author on twitter. Thanks.

I have been reading the Ruth Galloway series set in Norfolk over the past three weeks and will shortly run out of the books. If Elly Griffiths could just finish the next one and publish it on Monday, that would save an agonising wait! Email cerievans1(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks

too many choices atm but it would be a dean koontz book

JessS said...

I'd have to say Shadow Heir by Richelle Mead. It's the fourth one in the Dark Swan series and doesn't come out until next year and although this series isn't my favourite of her's pretty much any Richelle Mead book gives me that oh-my-god-I-have-to-read-it-now!! feeling. It was hell waiting for all the VA books to come out and I was definitely counting the days, and randomly writing things like May 18th (the date Spirit Bound came out) all over the place. Thanks!

IreneRJ said...

I have a very long wait till 27th March 2012 for Lover Reborn JR Ward. My must have,drop everything and read it as soon as the pre order comes through the letter box series of books.

Kaetrin said...

I just finished Dragon Bound and I loved it. I know that Tiago's book is out and Rune's is out shortly, but I'm waiting for Graydon's book - only I don't think it's been written yet!

I'm also waiting for the Drink Deep by Chloe Neill which is out November 1 - I have Hard Bitten on my TBR but I heard it had a kind of cliff hanger-y ending so I didn't want to read it until DD was out so I knew that Ethan and Merit would be okay.

Kristi said...

Definitely Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I am ITCHING day and night (not literally, well sort of) to get my hands on this book. And I have to wait until May 2012?! Seems like such a long time, but I am sure it will be worth the wait. I was hesitant going into Divergent (book 1) but came out LOVING it and the author's style. I feel like it can only get better and more exciting. Sigh. :)

Thanks for having this giveaway. Awesome idea. And the clip is hilarious, I lol'ed.
