Book Agony | Waiting for a Book Release

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas is only five days away. 5 DAYS. It’s so close, and yet, so far.

It all began when I finished Heir of Fire. I was on that lovely little book high, the book was fabulous! 

Then, I whizzed onto goodreads and looked up Queen of Shadows. That’s when a wave of panic hit me. I have to wait till September 1st?!


Waiting would be torture, waiting would be—

Of course, I moved on to distraction. But no book satisfied my need. Not even an episode of Gilmore Girls could cheer me up. It all came back to the same feeling.

What do we all go to when in emotional pain? Yes. That’s right. I began to eat.

And, of course, the next step was retail therapy. But I didn’t even want to buy anything, all I wanted was to cradle Queen of Shadows in my hand and read every single word.

Well, I thought, If I can’t have Queen of Shadows, I might as well immerse myself in the world. And so I did. I looked at all the fan art, I compulsively bought every pin, every phone case, every tote bag that even slightly resembled the series. 

Then, as I obsessively casually waited in a bookstore for Queen of Shadows, I noticed a shiny cover resting on a shelf. Well, maybe I could read that while I wait, I thought. I move towards it…

I couldnt stop reading. Every word kept me trapped inside the book until the very last page. As quickly as I could, I ran to goodreads and looked at the release of the sequel. 

I have to wait until 2016?!

It’s a vicious, vicious cycle.

I hope you enjoyed that, have you been enduring book agony lately? Let me know in the comments, along with any questions or requests! Have a wonderful day!
