Books that are taking way too long to come out

I follow a few authors' blogs, and some of them are getting published soon, and I can't wait to read them. But of course, publishing being a business that takes a while (ie. snails have got nothing on the industry), some of these books seem like they're taking forever to appear.
Here are some upcoming books on my list:

Elana Johnson's Possession
Emily Wing Smith's Back When You Were Easier to Love
Talli Roland's The Hating Game
Brodi Ashton's Everneath
Beth Revis's Across the Universe

I keep entering their contests, hoping that one of these authors will send me an ARC so I don't have to wait for the second Ice Age until I can read one. And so, Beth Revis's contest called to me--we're talking 100 prizes, all from one author! Only once have I ever gotten an ARC in the mail. Advance Reader Copies make me feel like a kid opening her presents a week before Christmas and then wrapping them back up again so no one else gets to see. Wahoo! Sneaky me! Just you wait, world, because I know what's about to be unleashed upon you.
Here's hoping.

Thanks for the shout out! If it makes you feel any better, it seems to be taking forever on my end too.

I don't have a Kindle, though, so I have to wait for the paperback. And wait. And wait...
