I’m really excited about a lot of nerdy goodness coming our way this year. Since I’m being forced to be patient, I figured the least I could do is share this torture that I call waiting.
Game of Thrones – (April 1st) My wife and I are always looking for a new series, and in spite of everyone’s best advice we pulled a Battlestar Galactica, waiting until it was over before we started watching. Unlike Battlestar, this time we didn’t wait until the end of the series. Wow, Game of Thrones is truly TV at its best and I’m looking forward to the second season. This is one of the few shows I’ve watched where I have yet to say “oh, I saw that coming”.
– (Release May 4th) Yeeeeaaaah baby! Avengers
is every Whedonesque
comic book fanboy’s dream come true. I simply can’t wait for this movie. Whedon
has the ability to actually balance character development, humor, and thoughtful
reflection into a tight, action-packed story with more than one character (see Serenity
). The way Marvel
has built this
up, tying in the Iron Man
, Captain America
movies together is genius and gives Whedon a lot of solid background to build on. This one is definitely going to be a midnight viewing!
– (June according to Wikipedia) I fell in love with the first Wheel of Time book, but by book five I came to realize that this series may never end (a slight exaggeration) so I had to set it aside. I’m the slowest reader in the world, and my reading time is also my writing time, so I have to be selective – but this series is worth it and I look forward to reading it in its entirety now that there is going to be a final installment.
Angst 2: Buried in Angst – (good question) Where the heck is this book!!! lol I know, I know. I have to include this because I’m really excited
to share my 2nd fantasy novel. While I can’t say it is going to be better than the original, I do think it is bigger in scope. I’m continuing to grow the world, the magic, and the characters. The chapters are packed full of Angsty goodness, it’ll be worth the wait.
Hey, I’m not done yet! I’ll post the 2nd half after the weekend. Until then, I’d love to know what you are looking forward to this year!?
