I’m sure there will be many, many more as we progress through the year, but from the get-go, these are the ones on my radar:
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater. NEED.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. Six of Crows knocked me off my feet. I can’t wait to find out what happens to this crew of misfits.
Illusion by Martina Boone. Eight Beaufort. That’s all.
The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh. Many of you know that Ahdieh’s The Wrath & the Dawn was my favorite read of 2015. I’m more than ready for the sequel.
The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye. This has been pitched as The Night Circus in an alternate Russia. So much yes.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. I had the pleasure of hearing Ruta talk about this book when she was in St. Paul this winter. It’s the true story of an accident on the sea that was astronomically worse than Titanic. I can’t wait to see how Sepetys brings it to life.
Underwater by Marissa Reichardt. I “met” Marissa when she interviewed me about Truest, and now it’s her turn to debut. Listen to this description. Is this not right up my alley? “Underwater is a powerful, hopeful debut novel about redemption, recovery, and finding the strength it takes to face your past and move on.”
What about you guys? What books are you looking forward to in 2015???
