I love you, Barnes and Noble!

I have had Richelle Mead's The Golden Lily pre-ordered from Barnes and Noble for months now.  I ordered it in hardback to go on my "Richelle Mead bookshelf".  I love Richelle Mead that much, that I have an entire bookshelf in my bookcase devoted to her.  

Anyway, something big happened this week, well, something big for me.  I got an email Tuesday from Barnes and Noble saying that The Golden Lily had shipped.  What in the world, I thought...I knew the release date was supposed to be 6/12/12.  So, I went online and looked on Barnes' site, Richelle's site, Goodreads, and Amazon and they all listed the release date as 6/12/12.  

I have no idea what happened, but I have my copy of The Golden Lily in my hands as of this evening.  My faithful UPS man delivered it to me at 5:30 today!  And you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm going to be reading it as soon as my baby goes to bed tonight! 

So, what I want to know is: Am I the only one that this has happened to?  Am I really this lucky?  Or is The Golden Lily releasing earlier than expected?  Has this kind of thing ever happened to you?



  1. Awwwwwwwwwwww that's awesome :D Enjoy!

  2. Lucky you!! That happened to me with The Story of Us by Deb Caletti, although it wasn't quite that early.

  3. You are so lucky!!!! I can't wait to get my copy!!

  4. Ahhh!!! I am so jealous. Let us know if it's worth it. Can you post an update when you finish (not a full review necessarily - just a love it or not update)?
