Bookish Rants and Rambles is basically where I either rant or ramble about something dealing with books.
I know everyone has been there. When you read a great book then realize that you have another year or more until you can read the next book?
But I'm not talking about that. Well, not exactly. I'm talking about when you read a great book and the next book isn't out yet. Maybe you add the next book to you TBR list even though the publication date is unknown. Maybe the next book isn't even on Goodreads yet.
But you wait.
You constantly check Goodreads. You check the author's blog (which may not have been updated in awhile). You check Amazon, Barnes&Noble, whatever site to see if there is even a hint of the next book only to turn up with nothing.
You may not understand what I'm talking about, but this is something that I have been through before. There are quite a few series that I'm still waiting for any news of another book and it makes me sad. No, it doesn't make me angry that the next book isn't here yet. I know that there is some reason as to why it isn't there. The author could be busy, the publisher never picked up the book, the author could have been writing and rewriting it. There are a number of things that could cause this book to be put on hold and I can understand that.
It's just hard to sometimes. I feel lost without completing the series, especially those that ended in a cliffhanger. Sometimes I almost give up on searching, though, and I do end up finding the next book. I was worried that The Shadow Cabinet would never come out, but it now comes out just next month!
Anyway, has this ever happened to you?
