I am an author addict (A Weekend to ReCOVER)

On his blog this week, author R.A. Salvatore announced the cover of his newest book Neverwinter Wood to be released in fall of 2011.  Let's all take a moment to sigh over this drool-worthy cover.

I like the green tone and the dragons in the background and of course, the fighting figures promise all the action adventure that I know the book will hold within its pages.  But I have one little problem with this book cover.  See that small print beneath the title?  "Neverwinter Book II"  Okay.  I'm sure you're thinking to your self, "Self, what's wrong with it being book two?"  The problem is - and I almost hate to confess this - I haven't read book one!  Gauntlgrym (aka book one) was released in October 2010 and I still have not read it!!!  Before you click for the comments and convince me that this is no big deal and I really need to settle down over since I still have a good ten months to consume book one before book two hits the shelves, there's something about me you all should know:  
I am an R.A. Salvatore addict.  
He is my most favoritest author and has been so for the larger part of the past two decades.  I've lost count of how many times I've read (and reread and reread) Homeland, and when I actually got to go to a signing and meet Mr. Salvatore, I was so freakishly giddy that my mouth hurt for a week from smiling so much.  (Okay, that's an exaggeration - it only hurt for about three days.)  So now you can understand a bit of why I'm wigging out on this one.  Here we have a book by an author I adore that's been accessible for over ninety days and I still have not read it!  I really need to get on this.

In the meantime, I'll be oohing and ahhing at the cover of Neverwinter Wood.  What cover art are you fawning over this week?  Do you have any authors that you read obsessively?  What's the longest you've waited for a newly released book that you've been dying to read? 

This post is part of my new feature A Weekend to ReCover that spotlights catchy book covers.  Feel free to join in and link up your own post about book art that's caught your eye lately!

    I've obsessed over Tolkien and Alistair McLean...but not too much. :D This cover looks gorgeous, and would be just the kind of thing to attract me! ...I don't know I've been hooked by any cover lately. Good luck with reading the latest Salvatore book!
