If you heard that _________ (insert author's name here) was releasing a new book, you'd pre-order it even if the media release said "watching paint dry" was a major theme.

Caity (caity_johnson) I can't wait for the new book by Jeffrey Eugenides. I also haven't gotten around to picking up the new Ann Patchett, but I love her style of writing, so I will always read her new books. And as a guilty pleasure, if J.K. Rowling were to ever write a follow up book to the Harry Potter series I would wait in line for days to buy it, regardless of pre-release reviews.

Donna | 1350 comments And let's admit it: after six years and how many reschedulings the release of "A Dance of Dragons" has to have people chomping at the bit. And I don't mean you Johnny-come-latelys who caught the fever after the HBO series started.

Ivy Sarah Moe (ivysarahmoe) J.K. Rowling, NOT as a guilty pleasure, she is my favorite author and I will never be ashamed of that. Also Melissa Anelli and John Green, probably Charlaine Harris as well.

Jeffrey Eugenides...for his new book that is to be releaaed in October 2011 I'd even be willing to experience a "Harry Potter like" release party at my local bookstore.

Barb Jean Auel. Shelters of Stone was an agonizing repeat of the previous 5 books; it could have been half the size if she simply expected everyone to read the others first. But, I HAD to read Land of the Painted Caves and enjoyed it very much. Little repetition and it made me very reflective.

I started these books when I was in Junior High and while I've always know that Ayla has been an influence on shaping my character, I never quite knew how much until I read this book and looked back. ;) 3 stars plus another for the selfawareness.
