Tammy’s Top Ten Books for the Rest of 2015

TTT banner 2015 copy

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where each week bloggers are given a new Top Ten theme to blog about. Since we’re now about halfway through 2015 (!), this week we’re listing our Top Ten Books for the rest of the year. Of course, this list is only a snapshot in time, as I’m sure more books will pop up between now and the end of the year that could certainly make this list. But for now, in order of release date, here they are:

Updraft by Fran Wilde. Releases September 1 from Tor Books. I was lucky to get an ARC of Updraft, so I’ll be reading and reviewing this closer to the release date.

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho. Releases September 1 from Ace. This just popped up on my radar, and even though it’s not my usual type of read, it sounds really good. Just read the Goodreads description and you’ll see what I mean:-D

The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher. Releases September 14 from Roc. OK, don’t laugh, but I still haven’t read anything by Jim Butcher! I know, crazy. Let’s start with this one, the first of a new series.

Dragon Coast (Daniel Blackland #3) by Greg Van Eekhout. Releases September 15 from Tor Books. Pacific Fire left us with a huge cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to see how Greg wraps up this series!

Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett. Releases September 22 from G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers. “Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn.” That’s all I need to know:-D

Gold, Fame, Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins. Releases on September 29 from Riverhead Books. A post-apocalyptic story with more of a literary bent to it. I recently listed this as one of my Top Ten Non SFF Books I Want to Read, and here it is on another list!

Rising Tide by Rajan Khanna. Releases October 6 from Pyr. I quite enjoyed the first book in Khanna’s series, Falling Sky. I’m excited to get back into his steampunk world.

Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman. Releases October 6 from Saga Press. I’m so intrigued by this story about a girl who goes to work for the devil. It seems like a mash-up of a few genres, and I’m looking forward to reading it.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman Jay Kristoff. Releases October 20 from Knopf Books for Young Readers. I was just approved for this on NetGalley (although it’s one of those titles that I can’t read on my Kindle, so I need to figure out how I’m going to read it). Anyway, I couldn’t be more excited! I adore Jay and this seems like quite the departure from his Lotus War series.

Our Lady of the Ice by Cassandra Rose Clarke. Releases October 27 from Saga Press. I honestly don’t even care what this is about. It’s a Cassandra Rose Clarke book and it’s from Saga Press. That’s all!

I’d love to know if you plan on reading any of these:-D

      I agree, that series is so long already! I read an excerpt of Aeronaut and it sounds really good:-)

    • Tammy

      Illuminae is definitely at the top of this list, I’m so excited to read more Jay Kristoff:-)

  1. I’m also intrigued by The Illuminae. I haven’t read any of Jay Kristoff’s work yet (Stormdancer is in my literal TBR pile at home *wink*), but it sounds really interesting. So does Sorcerer To The Crown. That’s the first I’m hearing of that book, too, so thanks for letting us know about it. 🙂

    A couple titles yet-to-be-released titles I’m looking forward to are “House of Shattered Wings” by Aliette de Boduard (sp?), “Dreamstrider” by Lindsey Smith, and “The Violinist of Venice” by Alyssa Palombo.

      I can’t wait to read House of Shattered Wings as well. There’s just too many books to keep the list to 10;-)

    • Tammy

      Ha ha, I’m glad we’re GR friends now, you always have awesome books on your radar as well:-)

      I’m hoping the new Jim Butcher doesn’t require reading the Harry books first, because I haven’t read any of them, LOL!

    • Tammy

      I’ve never heard of her until now, at least if we love this book, we’ll have some backlist options:-)

      *flies into a jealous rage over ARMADA* You are so lucky. I’ve been trying so hard to get an ARC. Supposedly mine’s in the mail, but I’m getting nervous:-D
