Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2015
- Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth
I’ve had this for a long time on my reading pile. Maybe if I can manage it, I shall read it for the retelling month, that is, March. We’ll see.
- Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman
Eeee! The long awaited sequel to Seraphina!
- Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
Another sequel, this one to The Diviners which I adored.
- The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
I should have had this read a long time ago but the size of the book is immense. But I read a few pages and it is easy reading so I shall read it in the coming year.
- The Beast Keeper by Cat Hellisen
Because I’m lucky, I have an ARC of this. I shall be talking about this in great detail during Retellings month (March.)
- My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk
I’ve had this on my reading pile for far too long. Must get it read and done.
- The Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson
I’ve read the first book, half of the second one and I really want to complete the trilogy.
- Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman – supposed to be released on March 10, 2015.
- The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson (book three of The Shades of London) – supposed to be released on February 10, 2015.
- Clariel: The Lost Abhorsen by Garth Nix – already released, but I haven’t got my hands on a copy yet.
Who knows what piece of serendipity I will stumble upon next?
I feel like we just made this list. *shrug* Oh well. Since Nafiza and Janet have already mentioned Shadow Scale, The Shadow Cabinet, and The Lair of Dreams, here are some other books I can’t wait to get my hands on:
- Fairest/Winter by Marissa Meyer: I’m glad we get two books next year. And Fairest is coming out in January!
- Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy/The Dark Artifices/The Last Hours by Cassandra Clare: More
shadowhunter storiesMagnus Bane!
- Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan: Another urban fantasy set in New York! I can’t wait!
- The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black: I have it on good authority that this is pretty awesome. (I mean, it is Holly Black.)
- Court of Fives by Kate Elliott: Apparently her first book for YA audiences? I’m very excited for this one!
- Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older: I encountered the cover and summary on Tumblr. It looks like it could be something I become very obsessed with …
- I am hoping that the next books in Marie Lu’s fantastic The Young Elites series and Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle series will somehow, magically be out next year.
