Book Blogger Hop
I used to do this hop when I first started blogging. It went away but now it is bag, so I might participate from time to time. :) This week's question asks What book(s) being released in 2013 are you most looking forward to?
I am actually terrible at keeping up with authors and when they are releasing books. There are a few though that I am looking forward to.
Neil Gaiman is releasing his second novel written for adults, The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel. I love everything Neil does whether it is for adults or kids or for Doctor Who. So I'll definitely be getting this. I'm hoping to pick up a signed copy from a bookstore here in MA, but by the time I have the money they might be sold out. :( It is being released on June 18th, so just in time for my birthday.
Lauren Willig, author of The Pink Carnation series, which is one of my favorites is releasing the 10th, and I think possibly final Pink Carnation book this year. It is called The Passion of the Purple Plumeria and it will be awesome. It is coming out on August 6th, but you can preorder it by going to amazon (The Passion of the Purple Plumeria: A Pink Carnation Novel) She also wrote a book that isn't part of the series that I am looking forward to reading,The Ashford Affair. I got an ARC e-copy of it. As soon as I have a break from school reading, I'll definitely be getting to it.
Finally, there is George RR Martin. Oh George. When will you release the next Song of Ice and Fire book. Will it be this year? Will it be in 2016? I would love to know.
