This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here.THIS TOPIC IS HARD. I mean, narrow this down to TEN? Fine. I will. But I will also mention the two 2015 books I’ve already read and gave 5 oranges each. So. Deal with it.
1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Inspired by Beauty and the Beast, pretty much one of my favorite fairy tales, and just, it’s SARAH J. MAAS OKAY? That should be reason enough. I glare daggers at everyone with ARCs of this. Do not even mention it to me if you do. *cries*
2. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
FAKE RELATIONSHIP. KASIE WEST. THAT COVER. I NEEEEEEED IT.
3. The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
THIS COVER. ALSO YA DA VINCI CODE. I NEEEEEED IT.
4. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Crossdressing thieves, pirates, parallel worlds, magic, London, Jack Harkness-esque character… To risk sounding incredibly repetitive, I neeeeeeed this.
5. The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May
asdfjkl; that freaking cliffhanger… I need to know. I need to. KIARANNNN.
No Covers Yet *cries*
I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS SERIES IS ENDING. It’s seriously so amazing, so if you haven’t started it yet, do ittttttt.
7. Throne of Glass #4 by Sarah J. Maas
8. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Jay Kristoff has been a cruel teasy tease about this new series for ages, and I’m SO INTRIGUED. It’s apparently going to be a revolutionary kind of storytelling and wellllllll knowing how much I loved Stormdancer and These Broken Stars, I have faith in these authors to deliver on that.
9. Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger
A COMPANION NOVEL TO The DUFF, Shut Out, AND A Midsummer’s Nightmare. ALSO IT’S FREAKING KODY KEPLINGER. DUHHHH.
10. The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
Since I got into the Marvel universe this summer, I’ve been sooooo much more intrigued about Norse mythology. I see its links and influences in a bunch of things, but I have very little knowledge about it. Also, it’s UNCLE RICK. Duh. (God I sound so freaking repetitive in this list.)
+ Two Books That Should Be On YOUR List
The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
This book was just plain amazinggggg, okay? I regret nothing about reading it three months in advance. Nothing. This series is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites – so read my review of The Bone Season and get in on this – knowing that The Mime Order is even freaking better.
When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill
Liz Czukas’s new adult debut is absolutely AWESOME. It’s soooo banterfluff-y, with lots of sex – without being excessive (it’s not actually that graphic). It’s the best kind of friends-with-benefits story and TOTALLY ADDICTIVE. So yeah.
