Most Anticipated Books of 2015

Thursday, January 8, 2015

Hi y'all!
I'm super giddy as I type this, so excuse any possible grammar mistakes. When I get excited I tend to type fast. NEW YEAR, NEW BOOKS PEOPLE. LETS GET CRACKIN'
P.S. Theres a bunch of spoilers all over dis biotch, so don't read my little blurbs at the bottom of each book if you haven't read the book or series yet.

I had a hard time figuring out which book was my number one. My top two are by the same author, who also happens to be my FAVORITE. Ever.

1.

Title- Queen of Shadows
Author- Sarah J. Maas <333333
Release Date- September 15th, 2015

Synopsis (my hopes for the book tbh)
Celaena sails back to Adarlan and kicks Arobynns ass. Then she makes up with Chaol, and they both go free Aeidan, who has been locked up in the King's jail for quite some time. Rowan sails back as well, immediately hates Aedion (who feels the same way), and then they all throw their brilliant minds together into figuring out how they're going to take down the King and free Dorian. The end!






Since there's no cover yet, I decided to use the next best thing: THE ONLY RELATIONSHIP I'VE EVER SHIPPED PLATONICALLY, Celaena Sardoethien and Rowan Whitethorn. This is my most anticipated release, and I guarantee I'll need to bring tissues with me when I go to the bookstore and get it.

But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.
"As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns  through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae."

Title- Ice Like Fire
Author- Sara Raasch
Release Date- Fall 2015

Synopsis- 
It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.

Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?

Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world


This is the second book in the Snow Like Ashes trilogy. I'm suuuuuuper excited for this one, especially since I just finished Snow Like Ashes a week ago and I'm still basking in it's glory. It kicked ass! Also that fucking cover. GORGEOUS

#4
Title- The Fifth Wave book 3
Author- Rick Yancey
Release Date- End of 2015

This is the third and final book in The Fifth Wave trilogy. All I'm gonna say is that this better tie up that crazy ass plot twist we got in The Infinite Sea or else I'll burn down Mr. Yanceys house.

Title- A Cold Legacy
Author- Megan Shepherd
Release Date- January 27th, 2015

Synopsis-
After killing the men who tried to steal her father's research, Juliet—along with Montgomery, Lucy, Balthazar, and a deathly ill Edward—has escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune-tellers who seem to know Juliet's secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor's own walls.
Then she uncovers the truth about the manor's long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—which forces her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. Juliet must decide if she'll follow her father's dark footsteps or her mother's tragic ones—or make her own.

This is the third and final book in The Madman's Daughter trilogy. I think I'm leaning towards Team Montgomery. Tall, blonde, and handsome? Uh, yes please.
Oh and I hate Lucy. Go away. YOU'RE RUINING THE LOVE TRIANGLE.

Title- Miss Mayhem
Author- Rachel Hawkins
Release Date- April 7th, 2015

Synopsis-
Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and best friend Bee has returned after a mysterious disappearance. Now Harper can return her focus to the important things in life: school, canoodling with David, her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie, and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.
Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him.  The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an an ancient trial that will either kill her . . .  or make her more powerful than ever.
This is the second book in the Rebel Belle trilogy (soooo many trilogies). The first book was hilarious. It's quirky and cute and fierce, in a girly-girl kinda way. Although I am a little suspicious of Bee, Harper's best friend. Nothing good can come from disappearing for a few weeks and then returning like nothing happened. I'M WATCHING YOU BEE.

Title- The Ruby Circle
Author- Richelle Mead
Release Date- February 10th, 2015

Synopsis-
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.
After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis.  Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.
This is the final book in the Bloodlines series. I've loved Richelle Mead ever since Vampire Academy (one of my all-time favorite series ever (please don't talk to me about the movie)) and I'm sad to see this series close. This book is going to be completely epic because, not only are Sydney and Adrian obviously in it (and they're MARRIED), but ROSE, DIMITRI, LISSA, AND CHRISTIAN ARE GOING TO BE IN IT TOO. And that "key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world"????? I'm dead.
I read an article about Richelle where she talked about how she is going to write another series in the Moroi world because she didn't have enough room to wrap everything up from VA and this series too. AND she said she wouldn't mind writing from Rose's POV again. Like????? ROSE IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER. IF I GOT ANOTHER 6 BOOK SERIES FROM HER POINT OF VIEW I WOULD….. HONESTLY I DONT KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO. I WOULD BE MENTALLY UNSTABLE, THATS FOR SURE.

Title- Six of Crows
Author- The heartbreaker Leigh Bardugo
Release Date- October 8th, 2015

Synopsis-
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone...

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums. 

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes. 

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first.


I just got goosebumps reading that. This is the first book in Leigh Bardugo's new series. She is the author of the Grisha trilogy, which just about broke me. I've never in my life cried so hard at an ending, or wished so hard for another book. This has 5 glorious stars already written all over it. ME SO EXCITED!!!!

Title- Boy Most Likely To
Author- Huntley Fitzpatrick
Release Date- June 2015

Synopsis- 
Surprises abound and sparks ignite in the highly anticipated, utterly romantic companion to My Life Next Door

Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To:
- find the liquor cabinet blindfolded
- need a liver transplant
- drive his car into a house

Alice Garrett was The Girl Most Likely To:
- well, not date her little brother’s baggage-burdened best friend, for starters.

For Tim, it wouldn’t be smart to fall for Alice. For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. But Tim has never been known for making the smart choice, and Alice is starting to wonder if the “smart” choice is always the right one. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard. 

Then the unexpected consequences of Tim’s wild days come back to shock him. He finds himself in a situation that isn’t all it appears to be, that he never could have predicted . . . but maybe should have.

And Alice is caught in the middle. 

WOOP WOOP! My Life Next Door was so cute and adorable I just wanted to rip it to shreds from how jealous I was. Tim was that quirky, smart-ass friend who always had me laughing out loud. So I know this book will be awesome. (I'm already picturing how epic the banter between these two lovebirds will be and chuckling to myself)

Cutesy contemporary about first love. What's not to like about it? And Lara Jean is an independent biotch. I dig it.

Title- The Wicked Will Rise
Author- Danielle Paige
Release Date- March 28th, 2015

Synopsis- 
My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.
After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz.
But it wasn't like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They'd joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me.
My mission?
Kill Dorothy.
Except my job as assassin didn't work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn't wait to leave behind might be in danger.
Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I'm really doing here.
Looooooved Dorothy Must Die. Mostly because Dorothy dressed like a slut in the book. She wore red, sparkly stripper heels. How cool is that?!
Anyways, Danielle Paige managed to fit a whole bunch of stuff in the first book, but make it flow in a way where you didn't feel like you were rushing through it. I loved it. Everything is ass backwards and nothing is what you expect.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

First off. This cover. STUNNIG.

Title- Red Queen
Author- Victoria Aveyard
Release Date- Febuary 10th, 2015

Synopsis-
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.
To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.
Another pretty cover! I think the people who work in book cover designs are finally learning! This sounds crazy cool and reminds me a little of Snow Like Ashes. *squeals*
Oh and the Grisha trilogy now that I think about it. *screams and cries*

And finally, 15. (Image and synopsis from Barnes and Noble)

I'm off my game. I didn't realize this came out already!! This book is the first in Amanda Hockings new trilogy that takes place in the same world as her Trylle trilogy, which I read as well. I liked the Trylle trilogy so I definitely need to get my hands on this one. And this cover? Hello, gorgeous!
