I actually held off reading "Towers of Midnight" until this past fall, thinking the final Wheel of Time book would be released in October. Then I read where they pushed it off till next year! Might reread it prior to the release of the final book, just to get all the storylines right. Talk about having to juggle and keep up with dozens of characters.<quoted text>
I'll be fine. I'm waiting on books from Stephen King and Robert Jordan as well, set to release in the first part of 2013. Terry Brooks should also be in there somewhere. Alas, I might not crumble 'til then.:-D
Another series I just recently started was "The Kingkiller Chronicle" from Patrick Rothfuss. So far only two books have been released, "Name of the Wind" and "A Wise Man's Fear", book 3 due out sometime 2013-2014. An excellent read!
