The 5 Emotional Stages of Waiting for A Book Release

The 5 Emotional Stages of Waiting for A Book Release

Do civilians even know about the torture we book nerds go through for each and every book we’re obsessed with?

If you’re a reader, chances are you know the struggle of an anticipated book release.  We’re not talking about “oh, yeah, I’m excited for that book to come out” anticipation, we’re talking “OH MY GOD I WOULD SELL MY LITTLE BROTHER’S KIDNEYS TO HAVE THAT BOOK IN MY HANDS RIGHT NOW” anticipation. (Sorry little brothers.)

But no matter what you’re willing to do to get that book, most of the time you just have to wait a year for it to be finished. You’d think that the millions of books you could read in the meantime would at least do something to reduce the anticipation, but it never does. And so we eagerly await each phase of the book’s release.

Phase 1: The Announcement

Emotional state: Extreme high immediately followed by withdrawal

When it comes to the announcement phase, there are really two different ways you could find out about the book. You could just be casually scrolling through Twitter when you see that one of your favorite authors retweeted something from Publishers Weekly (raise your hand if you’ve got their website bookmarked on your computer!) and omg you know what that means!

But then you see the release date is about a year or so away, and ugly cry every time.
