Waiting for The Twelve by Justin Cronin

The Twelve by Justin Cronin

I’m so excited that Justin Cronin’s The Twelve comes out next Tuesday. I absolutely loved The Passage. At first I didn’t pick it up because I thought it was about vampires. But it’s much much more than about vampires. It’s about survival of the human race and how humanity needs to reinvent itself. (Want more, read my review of The Passage.)

I totally coveted a galley of The Twelve, but due to very important meetings, I wasn’t able to obtain one. At least I got to meet Justin Cronin.

I’ve been reading interviews and reviews of The Twelve  and I just couldn’t stand it anymore. I pre-ordered it. That’s a big deal for me. My to-be-read pile is tall and full of great books (thanks for my review copies, publishers!). I always have plenty of choices. That or I head to the library.

I’m sort of a patient woman. When it comes to books anyway. I’m not really the type of person to pre-order a book or go out and buy it on publication day. Except for Harry Potter, Books 3-7.

So come October 16, when my copy of The Twelve arrives, don’t expect to hear from me until I come up for air. I am going to devour it. All 592 pages of it.

Do you have authors or books that you, ahem, stalk?
