It’s Tuesday, and time for another Top Ten list from the Broke and the Bookish! With so many upcoming fun Top Ten lists this month, it’s going to be hard to avoid some crossover, so I’m selecting books that haven’t been on any previous top ten lists. Also, I’m only highlighting books that already have a cover design, because it’s no fun to look at a book list without seeing the covers, am I right? I seem to have a lot of books from Tor on this list, which wasn’t planned:-) Here they are, in order of release date (click on the titles to go to Goodreads):
1. The Alex Crow by Andrew Smith. Releases March 3 2015 from Dutton Childrens. I read my first Andrew Smith book this year (100 Sideways Miles) and loved it. I’m going to tackle his backlist at some point, but I also want to read ALL THE NEW ANDREW SMITH BOOKS.
2. The Hellsblood Bride by Chuck Wendig. Releases March 5 2015 from Angry Robot. Angry Robot has been going through some stuff lately, they were recently bought by a new company, and so they’ve halted their publishing schedule until next March, when they plan on coming back bigger and stronger! I couldn’t be more happy, it’s seriously been lonely in Bookland without new AR titles to read. And because The Blue Blazes was so amazing, of course I’m dying to read this sequel. And because, CHUCK WENDIG, PEOPLE!
3. A Reunion of Ghosts by Judith Claire Mitchell. Releases March 24 2015 from Harper. This story sounds A. Ma. Zing. Just go to Goodreads and check it out! It sounds extremely dark, which is my kind of book, and I’m getting a creepy The Virgin Suicides vibe from it. Can’t wait!
4. Rook by Sharon Cameron. Releases April 28 2015 from Scholastic Press. I just recently came across this title, and it sounds like a wonderful mix of alternate history and romance, and it takes place in Paris, or maybe a different sort of Paris?
5. The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith. Releases June 2 2015 from Del Rey. The Griffith duo are at it again with a new series! I still haven’t read Vampire Empire, but that doesn’t stop me from adding this to the list. Just check out the description on Goodreads and see for yourself!
6. Survive the Night by Danielle Vega. Releases July 7 2015 from Razorbill. Vega’s The Merciless was one of my favorite YA books this year, and I can’t wait to see what she does next!
7. Time Salvager by Wesley Chu. Releases July 7 2015 from Tor Books. Wesley’s making the jump to the big leagues, after having great success with Angry Robot! I’m so happy for him, and excited to read this time travel story.
8. Last First Snow (Craft Sequence #4) by Max Gladstone. Releases July 14 2015 from Tor Books. I’ve been a steadfast fan of Max’s Craft Sequence since the beginning, and I’m happy that he’s not stopping at a trilogy.
9. The Uninvited by Cat Winters. Releases August 11 2015 from William Morrow. This is Cat’s first adult book, and it promises to have the same creepy, historical vibe as her YA books, In the Shadow of Blackbirds and The Cure for Dreaming (which I still need to read!). I can’t wait!
10. Nightwise by R.S. Belcher. Releases August 18 2015 from Tor Books. I loved Rod’s Golgotha series, and this time he’s tackling urban fantasy! This one sounds just as crazy good as his other books:-)
Of course, this is by no means a complete list, as there will always be more than ten books that I can’t wait to read. But these are the books I’m most excited about today. Let me know what books you’re looking forward to in 2015!
