Top Ten Tuesday #5: Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week we are talking about the Most Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2015! Be sure to tell me your thoughts and what books you have on your list in the comments!

1. Winter by Marissa Meyer — I fell in love with Jacin and his snark during Cress, and I adored the scenes between little Winter and little Selene in Fairest. Combine these two together in a retelling of Snow White and I am ecstatic. I also can’t wait to see how things end for all the other characters in the series!

2. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee — Adult Scout. Hopefully Adult Jem. Elderly Atticus, who in my imagination is aging as gracefully as Gregory Peck. Need. Mockingbird is one of my favorite books, so I really need this.

3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo — The Grisha combined with Oceans Eleven? I’m there. Plus, Leigh knows how to write the boys that I want to come to my yard  😉  High praise, indeed!

4. After You by Jojo Moyes — Have you heard me rave about Me Before You yet? Because I can, I do, and I will. That book made me feel so many things, and the thought of reuniting with Lou really excites me. Jojo Moyes is becoming one of my go-to authors anyway.

5. All the Stars in Heaven by Adriana Trigiani — My mother introduced me to Ms. Trigiani’s books, and I am so grateful to her for doing so. The Shoemaker’s Wife is a five-star read in my eyes, and I was also incredibly fond of the Valentine series. Trigiani’s next novel is set in Hollywood and features the love affair of Loretta Young with…wait for it… CLARK GABLE. I already knew of the history between these two, but that in no way diminishes the hype surrounding seeing one of my favorite male actors of the Golden Age of Cinema brought to life in fiction. (*obligatory “Oh, Rhett” sigh*)

6. The Last Star by Rick Yancey — I loved The 5th Wave, but was not a fan of The Infinite Sea. All the same, here is to hoping the series finishes out strongly. (EDIT: Have to take this one off the list, since apparently it isn’t coming out until NEXT YEAR NOW?!?! When did that change happen?! I’m so disappointed.)

7. The Lure of the Moonflower by Lauren Willig — In some ways I am a bit distraught at the thought of this series ending, for I love it so much. But I have complete faith in Willig’s ability to end it perfectly and we finally get to have the perspective of Jane so that is something to cheer for!

8. The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz — Steig Larson’s story continues on after his death, as a new writer takes over the helm of Lisbeth Salander’s story. I must be a fool, or something, because I know I am still going to read this despite my worries concerning new authors taking over another’s characters and world.

9. China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin KwanCrazy Rich Asians was such a wildly fun story, so I can’t wait for the sequel. Luckily, I only have to wait a week for this one to hit stores.

…and now that we’re here, I am realizing that I surprisingly don’t have a tenth book. So, The End…

  1. Ah Winter, really looking forward to that.
    I thought The Last Star wasn’t coming out until next year though? I loved the Fifth Wave too, but so far I haven’t been able to get myself to pick up the Infinite Sea.

    • WOAH. I thought it was coming out in September like the previous two, but you are right — it doesn’t come out until NEXT MAY. I am so disappointed. That is a very long wait for a book :/

  2. Seeing ‘Winter’ on a lot of lists today! I am totally with you on ‘Six of Crows’ it sounds like it’s going to be fantastic – I can’t wait!
    My TTT

  3. I haven’t heard of any of these books besides Winter, but I have seen Six of Crows on a few lists this week. I may have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by!

    • You went to ALA? I really want to attend the San Fran conference this month, but it is looking more and more like it won’t happen.
      Thanks for stopping by! I’m headed over to check your list!

    • I have an ARC of The Other Daughter as well! I’m really looking forward to reading it.
      Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m headed over to look at your list right now
