To Read or Not To Read

I definitely am feeling a bit conflicted. My copy of Eloisa James’  This Duchess of Mine arrived in the mail today. Now, one should realize that I had to physically restrain myself from going to the bookstore yesterday to get my hands on this book. After all, the book was in the mail. Buying it yesterday would have been seriously foolish. So, I distracted myself with Jennifer Ashley’s The Madness of Ian Mackenzie (and it distracted me awesomely).

Now, I am sitting here looking at my copy of This Duchess of Mine – and finding myself a bit hesitant to read it. First, I have HUGELY high expectations for Jemma and Elijah’s story. I so don’t want to be disappointed by this story that I have been anxiously awaiting since the publication of Desperate Duchesses in May of 2007 (wow, it seems longer than 2 years).

Secondly, I can only start reading this story once. A part of me is actually sad to see the end of Jemma and Elijah’s story. Granted, I can certainly read it again – read all of the books for the Desperate Duchesses series again. But, the experience won’t ever be like the first time.

I take this stuff way too seriously. I definitely need to find myself another hobby.

And on that note, I am off to read the book in question. Then, I have many more waiting for me as well.
