Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re counting down our top ten most anticipated releases for the rest of the year. There are so many books I left off the “Books I’m looking forward to in 2015” list so I’m glad to include them here. With this list I’m mostly sticking to authors I’ve read before, though I’ll most likely include some new-to-me authors on next week’s Summer TBR list.

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2015:

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas – On sale Sept. 1. I expect to see this one on a lot of lists this week! The publisher says, “This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena’s story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world. ”  Oh my!

Dark Wild Night (Wild Seasons #3) by Christina Lauren – On sale Sept. 15. I can’t wait to read Lola and Oliver’s story!

Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #3) by Ransom Riggs – On sale Sept. 22. My teen is obsessed with these books and I’ve already preordered this one. I’m planning to read the first two books this summer to get ready for the final chapter.

I Crawl Through It by A.S. King – On sale Sept. 22. King’s latest is “surrealist fiction” that “will mesmerize readers with its deeply affecting exploration of how we crawl through traumatic experience-and find the way out.” I’m always up for a new King book and this one sounds intense.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book about Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson – On sale Sept. 22. I adored Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and look forward to more of Lawson’s stories. In this book Lawson discusses her battle with mental illness, and is also about  “embracing joy in fantastic and outrageous ways.”

Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling – On sale Sept. 29. I am the biggest Mindy fangirl so of course I have already preordered this one. In this book she dishes on body image, friendships, work-life balance, and her relationship with B.J. Novak.

After You by Jojo Moyes – On sale Sept. 29. I still can’t believe there is a sequel to Me Before You, but I am interested in reading more of Lou’s story.

What We Left Behind by Robin Talley – On sale Oct. 27. I’m including the short Goodreads blurb here: “What We Left Behind follows a teen couple—Gretchen, who identifies as a lesbian, and Toni, who identifies as genderqueer—as they struggle to stay together during their first year in college, despite the growing rift caused by distance and Toni’s shifting gender identity.” There are not a lot of genderqueer characters in YA and I think this book will be important and informative.

Soundless by Richelle Mead – On sale Nov. 10. So excited for this new series from Mead! This new series is infused in Chinese folklore and is about a girl who lives in a silent mountain village. The starving villagers start to lose their sight as well, “but soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.” Sounds so intriguing!

November 9 by Colleen Hoover – On sale Nov. 10, lol. Ben’s an aspiring novelist who is inspired by his one day in LA with Fallon. They meet on the same day every year and the line blurs between fact and fiction.

What books are on your list? Do we have any in common?

  8. I cannot wait to see what Richelle Mead does with Soundless. Reading a stand along by her will be a nice change of pace I think. Happy readings 🙂

    Mindy Kaling’s books are on my wishlist. I think I’ll borrow them from the library for my library challenge. Off to add them to my wishlist now before I forget to add them to my library list.

    Thanks for the heads up about her new release in Sept!

    And I think I need to get on the Sarah J Maas train soon.

  10. I still haven’t read the Miss Peregrine’s books, but I really want to.

    Soundless has a really unique premise, and I’m curious where Richelle Mead will take the story. Plus, Chinese mythology is something I don’t have much background in, so it should be an interesting experience.

    I am one of the many who had Queen of Shadows on their list this week!

    I can’t wait for I Crawl Through It. I loved Reality Boy by A.S. King so I’m excited for a new book by her.

  14. Oh my god! Queen of Shadows! YESSSS! I cannot wait! Soundless is on my list as well!

  15. Great list, as always! As you saw (when you commented on my post in a timely manner rather than taking a week to catch up like me!) we have a few of the same choices. Sadly I still have to read Jenny Lawson’s last book, but I love her in general!
