My name is Pat and I live in Florida. My skin will never be smooth again and my hair will never see color. I enjoy collecting autographs and playing in Paint Shop Pro.,along with reading and writing. Sometimes, I enjoy myself by doing volunteer "work" helping celebrities at autograph shows. I love animals and at one time I did volunteer work for Tippi Hedren's Shambala Preserve.

Patience ....

Me and Patience:  two words that I  never put together.

Once, some time ago, I wrote a list of the "series" books I was reading.  Mostly for myself to keep track...

This time I thought I would write the names of the books I am waiting for to be released. 

Books, from series, I am waiting for with possible release dates:

Kristin Cashore: Fire (Oct. 2009) (sequel to Graceling)

Nancy Farmer: The Islands of the Blessed (Oct. 2009) Bk 3 of the Sea Trolls

Lisa Mantchev:  Eyes Like Stars (July 2009) bk. 1

James A Owens: The Shadow Dragons (Oct. 2009) bk 4 Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica

J. Scott Savage: Farworld: Waterkeep (Sept. 2009) bk 2 Farworld: Landkeep

John Marco: Starfinder (May 2009) bk 1

Angie Sage: Septimus Heap:The Magical Papers (June 2009) bk4 Septimus Heap series

Laurie R King: The Language of Bees (April 2009) bk 9 Mary Russell series

Sarah Prineas: The Magic Thief: Lost (May 2009) bk2 of The Magic Thief

Michael Scott: THe Sorceress (May 2009) bk 3 of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel

Jody Lynn Nye: A Forthcoming Wizard (April 2009) bk 2 An Unexpected Apprentice

Stephen R Donaldson: The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant unknown release date

Elizabeth Haydon: the Lost Chronicles of Ven Polypheme bk 4 unknown release date

Galen Beckett: book 2  of The Magicians and Mrs. Quent no release date

Henry H Neff: The Fiend and the Forge: Book 3 of The Tapestry (Sept. 2009)

Patricia C Wrede: bk 2 of Thirteenth Child no title, no release date

(most of my books are packed away so I am betting that this is not a total list) 

Remind me again how much I like books that are a series ~


On a different note:

Gavin over at Page 247 has given me an award!

Oh my gosh, Pat, that's some list! It's something that doesn't happen to me a lot to be honest... waiting for new books to come out that is. Though I can see it might be an issue in the future. And wow... what a lovely photo of BOOKS. Us bookaholics are pretty pathetic when even a *photo* of books makes us drool. Heehee.

And you tell me I'm bad about books! lol...I have many of those on my list too...or at least the first book in the series on my list! I have a copy of Starfinder for review and I can't wait to read that one. I'm scheduled to review it on June 1st. And I just requested an ARC of Fire, but I have to read Graceling first :p I may just do a post like this too! It looks fun :)

Look! Someone else reads the same books as me! I'm looking forward to most of these books (at least the ones that haven't been released and whose author/series I have read before.
