Before we start talking about this week’s new release books I have a bit of a confession to make.
As much as I love reading the newest released books, I hate waiting for them. In my world few things are worse than having a book end on a cliffhanger and finding out I can’t get the next book for a month or even a year *gasp* I hate it when that happens.
It actually makes me irrationally angry. You see, I read to find my next book boyfriend and I generally fall in love with him. So when a book leaves things unfinished, I turn into grumpy Sawyer.
Thankfully, I’m self-aware enough not to fall into that trap too often (I won’t read a series unless it says the book can be read as a stand alone as well).
Lately, I’ve been finding myself grumpy at all the amazing books that are going to be released later in the year. Is it so wrong that I want to curl up and read them all right now?
