The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #12)Holy chickies....Happy Friday and all that jazz!  If you're like Celie and I the hype over J.R. Ward's latest edition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, The King is in full swing.  With that being said, there are a few things you must do prior to the official release of the book.
  1. Officially start hacking at work on Monday morning to justify your sick call into work

  2. Wake up at zero:30 in the morning on 4/1 to download a copy of the audiobook from Audible...cause why the hell would you read that shit when Jim Fragione can read it to you?

  3. Put a Do-not-fecking-disturb sign on the door so there are no interruptions! - This is VERY important

  4. Commence listening....while also yelling about having Wrath/Beth moments interrupted by the fecking bastards that you don't give a shit about!
So those are the things that should be done in advance of purchasing the book/audiobook on Tuesday.  But even more important is taking some time to consider all the freaking lingering details J.R. Ward and given throughout the series and hoping/praying that for once, she sticks to her fecking storyline and answers some of the following questions:
