Booking Through Thursday – Anticipation

 btt button

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 a lot of books mentioned below, if you want to find out more about them, click on the picture to find the Goodreads description.

So, here is my answer. I am excited almost about every book I read. Why read it if you are not excited about it? But if we take the counting-the-days to reading it or unable-to-resist definition of excitement, the last book I was excited to read was (you can see my review here):

Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse, #5)

I just could not let it standing on the shelf, although I was reading another book at that time, but I put that one aside and read Dead as a Doornail. I was looking forward to it since I had read the previous book in the series, so I had to read it as soon as I got it.

I have also been excided in advance about the book I am currently reading:

Nightfall (The Vampire Diaries: The Return, #1)

It is such an exciting read.

There are several books I am excited to read in the future. I cannot wait to read the next instalments of my currently favourite series (yes, I am all about vampires these days, cannot help myself - it will perhaps pass some day):

Dark Needs at Night's Edge (Immortals After Dark, #5)    Shadow Souls (The Vampire Diaries: The Return, #2)   Definitely Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #6)

Then there are also other genres:

Ballad   Wake Unto Me   Forbidden

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, #2)    The Land of Painted Caves (Earth's Children, #6)

I am waiting for the Slovene translation of the last two.

And at last, I am so looking forward to Stephanie Meyer’s sequel to The Host (I hope she writes it soon) and the last book in Kate Mosse’s Languedoc Trilogy, Citadel, although these two will require some patience (but I believe it will be well worth of waiting). 

That is a long enough list, yet still incomplete. You get the idea. Now, I am going to read other BTT posts to find some more books to add to my never-ending excited-to-read list.


  1. I would have to agree with you, you do love your vampire reads.

  2. I know this is a very hot rage right now but it is a genre I just can't find myself enjoying.

  3. I usually don't start out excited, more curious I guess. If it's any good, or very good, I'll get excited soon enough :-)

  4. I really have to try one of these vampire books. I read over 100 books a year and have never even tried one. Come see my BTT

  5. What a great list! And it's great that you get excited about every book...I'm trying to make every book I read one that I'm passionate about instead of something I "should" be reading. :)

  6. I don't necessarily get excited about every book I read, most of them - yes. But I kind of prefer it when I pick up a random book thinking "I'll try this" and then end up loving it. It's like Christmas in June.

  7. I do look forward to most books I am going to read (there are a few I have in then end liked but only read because a friend talked me into it or it was for my book group). I think though that feeling is very different from the anticipation of a new book coming out. Specifically a favourite author who has had a few years between books.

  8. There are a lot of books out there to be excited about.

    here's mine:

  9. These all look really good!

  10. Ohh.. I didn't know Stephanie Meyer was writing a sequel to The Host. Now I'm excited!

  11. Great selection of books :P great BTT


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
