Posted December 2, 2014 / Top 10 Tuesdays, Weekly Memes / 15 Comments

Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in 2015

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make LISTS of our top ten books based on that week’s prompt… and then we stalk other people’s answers to add a million books to our TBR. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here.

Releasing in 2015

All Fall Down (Embassy Row #1)A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)Saint AnythingThe Fill-In Boyfriend
In a World Just RightThings We Know by HeartThe Start of Me and YouRed Queen (Red Queen, #1)

Embassy Row by Ally Carter: I was one of the first people to apply to be an Ally Ambassador, so I have a lovely ARC of this one (hopefully) being shipped to me as we speak! I can’t wait to dive in, especially because I’m about to finish my Gallagher Girls reread within the next month.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: Yes, I STILL haven’t read Throne of Glass. Do not kill me. However, this book honestly sounds more up my alley than ToG does. I am very anxiously awaiting this one.
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen: I didn’t even have to read the summary of this one to know it was an auto-buy. Sarah Dessen is credited for getting me into the YA contemporary romance genre and I binge-read most of her books during one boring summer vacation in Maine.
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie WestYep, I’m a sucker for covers. I STILL have not managed to read all of her books yet, which is surprising… The Distance Between Us was one of my favorite books of the year. I own most of her books but for some reason haven’t gotten going yet. Regardless, neeeed this one. Come to me.
In a World Just Right by Jen Brooks: I added this to my TBR forever ago and was convinced it was already released for some reason. Another parallel universe story for me to eat right up.
Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby: Seriously I need this one yesterday. I love books about grief (sounds morbid, sorry) and this one takes the cake for a premise that made me say OMG YES TBR NOW. I own her book Golden but somehow haven’t read it yet. I’m really bad at buying books and leaving them around forever, no matter how great they sound.
The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord: I loved Open Road Summer and want more boys like Matt Finch. Now. And this is another one about losing a boyfriend… looks like 2015 will be the year of Lauren crying into her books.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I’m mostly excited about this one because Victoria Aveyard is actually a friend of a friend of mine. She grew up in the town next door to me! Aside from that, this story sounds awesome and some early reviews have me even MORE excited for this one. I am the preorder queen.

Blank-133x176Blank-133x176Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)Stealing Parker

Releasing in 2015 with no cover yet

Trail of Tears by Josephine Angelini: GAH the ending of Trial by Fire made me so angry that I had an ARC, read it early, and had to wait around for the second book! I am pretty much dying to see what happens next.
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han: This one goes without saying. There was a tiny cliffhanger at the ending that makes me wonder what’s going to happen with my girl Lara Jean. As a Jenny Han fangirl (a Hangirl, if you will) I don’t mind that there’s going to be a love triangle in this one… even if it’s the move love trianglest love triangle ever. She’ll make it work; I have faith. 

Backlist spillover from 2014

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo: I’ll be reading this one in January for an upcoming buddy read. I’m really excited to see where the story heads next, because yet again – another cliffhanger. Damn authors.
Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally: I started the Hundred Oaks series with Breathe, Annie, Breathe, for some reason, and then backtracked to Catching Jordan. I’m hoping to finish this series up at the beginning of the year. She writes the BEST romancey books, but I am nervous for the upcoming religious topics in the next few books.

What books are you looking forward to in 2015? Any of these?

      Thank you! 😀 I can’t wait for Embassy Row. They asked for my address so I’m hoping/praying/assuming that means it will be a physical ARC!

      I’ll be looking out for your Siege and Storm review after I finish it too – I love reading the different reviews for a book, especially once I’ve read it and have my own thoughts haha

      Haha I know! I need to get going on reading other people’s lists this week but I’m not surprised to hear that!

  1. I’ve yet to read anything by Ally Carter, honestly I’m not really into spy themed books but All Fall Down sounds awesome. My friend is a HUGE ToG fan, like she can’t freaking shut up about it so I always wanted to see what makes this author so amazing in her eyes and now I get the chance without forcing myself to read something I never really wanted to in the first place. A Court of Thorns and Roses looks wonderful, and that cover is freaking gorgeous. Sarah Dessen got me into YA Contemporary too, even though The Moon and More didn’t work out for me I’ll be buying this ASAP. The Fill-In Boyfriend sounds extra-super cute and Red Queen! Aww I love love love the cover and the blurb too! So many amazing boys will be out next year,
    Wonderful list!
    PS: I’m loving your blogs look (all the pink *-*) and the way you write your reviews. New follower via Bloglovin 🙂

      Thank you so much for the comment! xo
      I’m not really into spy themed books either, but Ally Carter is so great. EVERY book blogger out there is obsessed with ToG so I totally am feeling the peer pressure; ACoTaR is definitely more my style. Sarah Dessen is certainly a classic contemporary writer for everyone! The Moon and More is actually one I haven’t gotten to yet. The most recent one I read was That Summer, which is actually one of her first books, and I really didn’t like it that much. She definitely has some classics (The Truth about Forever and This Lullaby!). I can’t wait for Fill-In BF and Red Queen! Eek!
      Thanks for the blog compliments – I’m obsessed with pink, in case that wasn’t obvious 😉
      Checking out your blog now!!

      Thank you! Kasie West is great. I’ve only read The Distance Between Us, but it had such an amazingly snarky and sarcastic main character – so funny!

    • Lauren (Bookmark Lit)

      Thank you! I can’t wait for all of those contemporaries. Did you read Throne of Glass yet? I feel like a poser for wanting A Court of Thorns and Roses without reading the other series first, but it just sounds like ME so much more!

  2. SIEGE & STORM, YOU MUST! This was one of my favorite series of this year, and I really think that Siege & Storm was the high point. (Not to say that Ruin & Rising wasn’t also incredible, because it was – but that one got more varied responses!) Totally looking forward to the Jenny Han sequel myself; I ended up liking TATBILB so much more than I thought I would, and I love where she took the story! (Even more interested to see where it goes from here.) Annnnddd A Court of Thorns & Roses is all the yes in the entire universe, because ToG wrecked my life this year.

    Great list, Lauren!! Looking forward to a lot of the same books; I’ll have to keep an eye out to see what you think of them throughout the year:)

      Thank you!! I’m sooo excited for Siege and Storm. I do a Book Buddies review every other month with someone else, so that’s why I have to wait until January!
