I know I don’t usually post twice in one day, but today is an exception.
Last night, I plugged in my phone to charge, and then when the screen flashed on I saw that I had a voicemail from a normally uncommunicative *cough cough* friend. I listened to this voicemail, a little puzzled, and then I found out that she had got Heir of Fire, Throne of Glass #3, from our local bookshop. On Saturday. Five days before it was due to come out in the UK. (By the way, I adore Throne of Glass. If you didn’t catch on.)
As you might imagine, I promptly went and ran around the house squealing at my parents. I then checked Amazon and Bloomsbury for the release date, which was still Thursday. I had a hard time getting to sleep.
When I got to school, I fangirled some more, then realised that a) I would have to wait a whole school day to get Heir of Fire, since the bookshop didn’t open until 9 and b) I’d then have to go home to get money.
So, school was torture. I didn’t realise concentrate at all, to be honest. How could. I concentrate when I could be WITH CELAENA AND CHAOL AND DORIAN?!?!
Now, I’m sitting at the table with Heir of Fire in front of me. I’m kind of scared to look inside, but as soon as this post is done I’ll do it anyway.
(I stole the title format from Gabrielle Zevin’s Birthright Trilogy. Sorry. Do you like it?)
