Most Anticipated 2015 Releases

There are quite a few good books coming out this year. My wallet is going to be extremely unhappy with me. Oh well…

Here are my top Most Anticipated Releases, in no particular order:

Carry On
Publication Date: October 6, 2014
Hardcover, 384pages, St. Martin’s Griffin
Genres: YA, Fantasy, LGBT

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

My Thoughts

I can’t believe that we’re getting this book! Between this and the special editions of Fangirl, I’m on Rainbow Rowell cloud nine!

Every Last Breath
Publication Date: July 28, 2015
Paperback, Harlequin Teen
Genres: YA, Paranormal

The third and final book in the Dark Elements series.

My Thoughts

That description is so helpful. *sigh* I just need this book. I forgot how much I loved the world of The Dark Elements series until Stone Cold Touch came out. JLA is an amazing writer and I wish I owned all her books! Plus, her boys are always sexy pieces of fantastic literature!

Publication Date: February 3, 2015
Hardcover, 368 pages, Disney-Hyperion
Genres: YA, Paranormal

Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.

Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.

The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?

My Thoughts

I just need some more hot aliens in my life. That is all.

Death Marked
Publication Date: March 3, 2015
Hardcover, 400 pages, Greenwillow Books
Genres: YA, Fantasy

A young sorceress’s entire life has been shaped to destroy the empire controlling her world. But if everything she knows is a lie, will she even want to fulfill her destiny? The sequel to Death Sworn is just as full of magic and surprising revelations, and will thrill fans of Leigh Bardugo and Robin LaFevers.

At seventeen, Ileni lost her magical power and was exiled to the hidden caves of the assassins. She never thought she would survive long. But she discovered she was always meant to end up, powerless, in the caves as part of an elder sorcerer’s plan to destroy the evil Empire they'd battled so long. Except that Ileni is not an assassin, and she doesn't want to be a weapon. And, after everything, she’s not even sure she knows the truth. Now, at the very heart of the Empire—its academy for sorcerers—the truth is what she seeks. What she finds challenges every belief she holds dear—and it threatens her fledgling romance with the young master of assassins.

Leah Cypess spins an intricate and beautiful conclusion to Ileni's story. In the end, it may not be the epic decisions that bring down an empire, but the small ones that pierce the heart.

My Thoughts

The first book left off in such a horrible place, I need to know what happens and if/how/when Ileni and Sorin get together again.

Lion Heart
Publication Date: May 19, 2015
Hardcover, 304 pages, Bloomsbury USA
Genres: YA, Historical

The eagerly-awaited conclusion to the Scarlet trilogy delivers another action-packed and romance-filled adventure.

Scarlet has captured the hearts of readers as well as the heart of Robin Hood, and after ceaseless obstacles and countless threats, readers will finally find out the fate of the Lady Thief.

Imprisoned by Prince John for months, Scarlet finds herself a long way from Nottinghamshire. After a daring escape from the Prince's clutches, she learns that King Richard’s life is in jeopardy, and Eleanor of Aquitaine demands a service Scarlet can’t refuse: spy for her and help bring Richard home safe. But fate—and her heart—won’t allow her to stay away from Nottinghamshire for long, and together, Scarlet and Rob must stop Prince John from going through with his dark plans for England. They can not rest until he’s stopped, but will their love be enough to save them once and for all?

My Thoughts

I’ve enjoyed the first two books in this series much more than I thought I would. I can’t wait to see how it all ends. Although, it seems obvious since it’s based off the legend of Robin Hood. ;)

End of Days
Publication Date: May 12, 2015
Paperback, 336 pages, Hodder & Stoughton
Genres: YA, Paranormal

End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.

After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?

My Thoughts

I didn’t realize that the blurb for this book was out until I looked it up for this post. SQUEEEE! I wasn’t completely satisfied with World After, so hopefully this book ramps it up.
