Well.. I can say that I am thrilled to be a cheapskate today ! I WAS.. And I want to repeat WAS waiting for Charlaine Harris's new trilogy "Cemetery Girl" to come out on Tuesday .
Little did I know that in addition to completely letting me down with the "final" book in The Sookie Stackhouse series, it could and would get worse .
A GRAPHIC NOVEL? Don't get me wrong. There are some fantastic ones out there. However from the early reviews I've read, this goes into the far larger pile of "this is not one if them!" Looks as if Ms. Harris has joined the ranks if Cassandra Clare, Karen Marie Moning, Kami Garcia & Maragaret Stohl... All who wrote books I LOVED . This generation of Manga / graphic novels does not work for every series. I have been massively disappointed in all the above mentioned authors.
What I'm waiting on this Wednesday is for the publishing companies to stop milking their fan bases for easy $ and finish the series that the fans love you for! Stop ending a book on an insane and usually somewhat complex cliff- hanger & then don't put out the next book in the series for over a year! By the time the book comes out I often have to reread the last few chapters of the previous book do I remember why I cared and what the hell is happening.
It's truly tiresome. Those teasing novella's or alternate p.o.v. They also are appealing for certain books. Most can go directly in that pile if books to be used in case the world ends as part if my doomsday planning pack, the others will be used to even out crooked furniture .
So , though it's hardly the happy what I'm looking forward to reading post, this is a what I want to stop feeling like I need to read it just in case... That case has not proven necessary yet:( sadly everything I'm waiting for isn't coming out for do long, I don't feel like torturing myself with the actual dates.
So my fair readers. I hope this Wednesday if you were waiting on something that's supposed to be coming out soon? That it doesn't get pushed back, delayed in any way. I hope that you and all your book inspired friends and lovers meet you at 12:00, when the pre- order delivers it automatically to whatever device you use.. and it's actually worth reading !
