I am in agony! For those who aren't book fanatics, I know that may seem extreme but for those who share the same passion I do for the books I love, I can almost see you nodding in agreement. What has my panties in a twist this morning? Nothing short of some of THE most delicious characters in paranormal romance - Dark Hunters.
Ever since I finished the last book, I have been DESPERATE for the new release and counting the days down until I buy myself a copy and devour it. Want to know how to drive me insane? Make me wait a YEAR for the next installment! One of the reasons I love indie authors so much with their rapid releasing but aah... I digress.
Finally! The day Retribution is released and I get BRAND NEW Dark Hunters! I'm so giddy right now I'm panting with excitement and I'm in a dilemma. It went on sale some 10 hours ago and do I have my copy? NOOOOOOOOOO! Because I'm trying to be a responsible book junkie and wait until I can get it in hardcover. Are you someone who like all their series to look the same?? I can over look paperback, paperback, paperback, HARDCOVER but skip one because it's on my Kindle.... NEVER! But I want it sooooooooooo bad that I can't stand the wait!
I've gone over and over it in my mind. I can get it on Kindle now and then wait until it comes out on paperback. It'll look like the majority of my collection and I have that instant gratification. I also LOVE reading on my Kindle because I can highlight my favorite parts for future swooning. Crazy thing is even if I got it this very second, I couldn't read it because I have blog tour work to do in preparation for me going to RomCon in two days. But still... I'd HAVE IT! There would be a sexy Dark Hunter in my house, one I've been dying to meet!
I placed a frantic call to my hubby, begging him to PLEASE not forget to buy me a copy. Chances are... he'll forget (I hope not because I really enjoy having him as a husband and I'd have to kill him and then I'd be lonely. I'm kidding... or am I?) The nearest place to buy it is 30 minutes away and I did contemplate walking, crawling if I had to. Hahahaha I didn't realize what a nut job I was until I saw that!
So here I sit, hands shaking a little as I fight the urge to and try to be patient. There's bets happening on Facebook about what I'll do. Will I cave and buy on Kindle or will I be a good girl who realizes "Belinda it's just a book" and waits until her husband brings it home for her? OR will I buy BOTH Kindle and the book and be in a giddy swoon for the rest of the day?
What's a book junkie to do?
