Phase 2: Synopsis
Emotional state: Analytical yet also in agony
This is usually the next phase of a book’s release. It’s not too far after the book has been announced, but to the book lover, it feels like years. You’d think we were forgetful with how many times we read that paragraph over and over again, but nope, we’re trying to read between the lines and predict all the things!!!
And then you realize that you STILL have to wait like a year or so to ACTUALLY FIND OUT.
