Waiting For A New Book Like: (or Waiting For The Raven King Like:)

So you know there's always those few books, every year, those ones that you just can. not. wait for? More than the normal I-need-this-now feeling, it's the one where you literally worry you might die before you get it. It's the ones where you know you could die from feels from and the ones you're almost a little afraid to read because then the waiting (as painful as it's been) will be OVER...


...

We all have those, right?


Here are the stages of waiting for those books and then finally, FINALLY, getting them.


First, you wait weeks, months, years sometimes. Some days it's okay. Some, it slips your mind. But then you remember and you are dying for it.
Then, suddenly, it's less than a month away... You have to start preparing yourself. Maybe you read a bunch of early reviews. Maybe you make sure to avoid all that. Maybe you reread the other books in the series and slowly....soooo slowly, you're obsession grows once more.

All month you're like:


THEN, then. It's just a week away and how did we get here? And we're dying.


You can practically see it in your hands, imagine all the feelings you're going to have while reading it...

Part of you is still dying for the book...


But part of you is thinking...



This is the last book in the series or you're going to have to wait another year for the next...


And...feels...

And...what if it breaks your heart...

And...what if it's not all you want it to be, what if it doesn't break your heart...


What if it's the most amazing thing ever...


But what will life be like after it's over...


Even if it's amazing...


Even if it's bad...


What will life be when you aren't waiting for it...


Also, feeeeeeels:


Basically, I was talking to my friend on Tumblr yesterday about how I was so excited but also afraid of reading The Raven King because I love this series so much and there's so much we've all been waiting for from this book and it's been such a long wait and I'm scared... Not really that I won't like it or it won't end well because I trust the author, but I've spent all month obsessively rereading the Raven Cycle and being so excited for it to finally come out, And I WANT IT SO  BAD but I also don't? Because then it will be OVER and we all feel this way about our favorite books don't we?

Basically, she summed it up perfectly:


And that's all for today because I'm going to spend the day in bed with blankets, cats, coffee, and The Raven King. *heart eyes*

Who else is looking forward to The Raven King today? What's the last book that had you feeling all these feelings????

    1. GAH! I was so glad I ended up canceling my Amazon order to go pick it up at Barnes and Noble when I heard about all of that. GOOD DECISION VAL because seriously no regrets.

      I DON"T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY LIFE ANYMORE!!!!??? Can we please discuss when you've finished reading it? Cause I don't know what life is anymore. I think I'm going to have to reread it all again because...I just HAVE to. Haha.

      THANKS. I spent way too much time finding them. ;)
