Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop


I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…no wait, that was last month.

This month (and honestly, every month) I’m dreaming of books. Hopefully you are too, since this is the Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am a Reader.

There are some books that we dream of, waiting anxiously for them to appear. And then there are other books that we dream about because they give us a “book hangover” and we can’t let go of them until they have worked their way completely through the psyche. Often with angst.

So let’s talk about books that have stuck in the brain because we’re book hungover. For me, it’s usually something in an ongoing series, usually in a world that really fascinates me, whether I’d want to live there or not. John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War series always leaves me with a book hangover. So did Jean Johnson’s Theirs Not to Reason Why series. And I’m still speculating about where Ann Leckie is going to go after Ancillary Sword.

What about you? What recent book has left you stranded in the author’s world? Or, what upcoming books are you dreaming of reading? Leave a comment in the rafflecopter for a chance at a $10 Amazon or B&N Gift Card.
