Anyone else excited about October 16, 2012?
Big book releases give me the shivers. Seriously. The build-up is almost too much for me. I begged and pleaded for an ARC (advanced reading copy) of The Twelve and when each day passed without it arriving in my mailbox, I became despondent.
I know I was not the only one either because it seems as if so many bloggers were overlooked for this one and I must say, it’s a little disappointing. Especially when you were offered book one the first time around. I know. Get over myself!
Anyway, me being overlooked for an advance peek hasn’t affected my excitement over the book itself. I am dying to read it and cannot wait to get my hands on it. My decision comes down to this:
Kindle version or Hardback?
Should I take the day off to read it?
These are the questions that I am asking myself right now.
Also, I am trying to decide if I should reread The Passage.
I’m thinking I may, because I read it as an ARC and that was ages ago. Is anyone else planning to reread it before the big release?
Although Cronin’s books don’t fall into one genre, they have elements of horror along with all the other stuff that comes along with experiments gone wrong, flying vampire-like creatures and a strange little girl to lead the way. It’s entertainment at its best and I just cannot wait to dive in!
However, I have noticed that my reading has centered around the macabre lately. It all started with the IT Along. Reading King’s take on childhood horrors has stirred up my love of horror. Plus, Halloween is lurking in the shadows and just the thought of it has me pulling out all of my faves from the past. Anyway, I’m sure my little foray into horror/thrillers will be a short one. I’ll be back to reading about dysfunctional families before you know it. Hope you don’t mind.
