Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Books I'm Excited About

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Last week, the topic was centered on our winter TBRs. So because I had a lot of January and February books on my list last week, this is only for books March and after. I can't even express how great 2015 will be and how utterly depressing it will be that I won't read as many books as I'd like

Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt
Release: May 19 from Bloomsbury

A crime family. Body parts being sold like no big deal. Autoimmune disease. What sounds like a protective family. Rival families. I'M IN LOVE.

The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski
Release: March 3 from Farrar, Strous and Giroux

I want to cry while looking at that gorgeous cover. The first book, The Winner's Curse, was one of my absolute favorite books. 

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Release: May 5 from Bloomsbury


Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
Release: April 21 from HarperTeen

I'm a sucker for those news videos where a family meets the donor recipient for their loved one's heart. (Also, why are there so many guys in these 2015 stories named Trent?) 

99 Days by Katie Cotugno
Release: April 21 from Balzer + Bray

Why yes, I would like this contemporary. And I'm really digging that title.

The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver
Release: April 28 from Farrar, Strous and Giroux

This reminds me of a Blacklist episode (the Lord Baltimore one?) and I'm loving it.

Pretending to be Erica by Michelle Painchaud
Release: July 21 from Viking Juvenile

THIS THIS THIS THIS. I want this so bad. It hurts. 

The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough 
Release: April 28 from Arthur A. Levine Books

The intro in the synopsis almost lost me (way too long), but I see DIVERSITY! 

What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi
Release: August 4 from Sourcebooks

Some people may groan that it's a teenage parent/pregnancy story, but it's told by the male's perspective!

Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay
Release: March 17 from Katherine Tegen Books

Points subtracted for a bad rhetorical question: Hasn't everyone wondered what if? Well, actually, yes. A lot of books have, in fact. But points added because it's a what-if/parallel universe-type story and I love those. 

Bonus: The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy, Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton, The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (!!!!!!),  A Matter of Heart by Amy Feller Dominy, Damage Done by Amanda Panitch (WANT!),  Scarlett Undercover by Jennifer Latham


  1. The winner's crime and A court of thorns and roses (I AM SO EXCITED) are two books I can't wait for. I'm curious about Hold me like a breathe because of the autoimmune disease.

  2. Just added The Secrets We Keep and Pretending to Be Erica to my TBR list! Thanks!

  3. I haven't heard of a few of the books on your list before! *goes to look them up* But I'm looking forward to The Fixer (It made my list!) a lot, too! :)

  4. I want to read pretty much every book you listed, and some of them even made my TTT post. I love how much our tastes match up. ^.^

  5. Yes, yes, YES to SO many of these!!! I want to read basically all of these as well. Some are more on the emotional side though, so I will have to make sure I'm in the appropriate mood to handle them. ;) But YES!!!

  6. Hold Me Like a Breath is on my TBR, too! I loved the crime element in the Curseworkers series and Illusive; here's hoping it works well here. :)

  7. AHHH, so many amazing books!! It looks like we have some similar books this time around. I also really loved The Winner's Curse and the cover for the Winner's Crime *drool*. 99 Days looks SO GOOD. The title is so great as well, totally agreed. <3 I hasn't heard of a Pretending to be Erica, but I think it's going to have to go on my endlessly expanding list.

    Amazing list!! I CANT WAIT FOR 2015!!

  8. I love the title of 99 Days too!!! I wanted to read it before I even knew what it was about! The Secrets We Keep is another one I can't wait to read. I love the idea of it! Great list :)

    My TTT

  9. Wow - The Fixer looks so good! Actually, there are a bunch of books on your list I didn't know, but I've already added them to my TBR, so thank you!
    Here’s my TTT post.

  10. Awesome picks! What You Left Behind has such an amazing cover, I may have to go look that one up on Goodreads and find out more about it! I'm really looking forward to The Secrets We Keep as well.

  11. I haven't heard of 99 Days before but the cover is stunning and so I might need to find out more :3 Sharing your love for A Court of Thorns and Roses though! Nice list darling!
    Here's my Top Ten: https://bookrambles.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/top-ten-books-im-looking-forward-to-in-2015/

  12. I just read Things We Know By Heart, and I liked it! My favorite aspect has got to be the way the way the setting is described, and also just the way Jessi Kirby wrote this story ;) Also, The Winner's Crime is so freaking fantastic, and I DEFINITELY cannot wait for you to read that one! I'm also very excited about A Court of Thorns and Roses!!!

  13. I haven't read the Throne of Glass series yet, bu I'm looking forward to t A Court of Thorns and Roses. It looks really good. This is the first I'm hearing about some of the others, but I'm going to check them out - Everything That Makes You sounds interesting.

  14. I love that you have Things We Know by Heart, 99 Days and The Winner's Crime in your list, these are three books that so would have made it to my list too! From the last books you've mentioned I don't think I've come across a lot of them before, but I'm certainly going to be checking out what they're about right now!

  15. I'm so excited for What You Left Behind as well! Teenage pregnancy stories are a bit common, but knowing Jessica Verdi, hers will stand out thanks to her emotional writing (and the male perspective).

    Also, how did I not have The Secrets We Keep and Pretending to Be Erica on my to-read list? I need to fix this immediately. Pretending to Be Erica's Heist Society comparison makes me nervous, but it also intrigues me.

  16. What You Left Behind sounds suuuuper interesting. I have high hopes for it. Also can't wait for ACoTaR (fingers crossed no love triangles), Hold Me Like a Breath, and Things We Know By Heart. I don't think 99 Days is my thing, and I'm super scared to read The Winner's Crime.

  17. I loved The Winner's Curse too. I think it's still my top read for 2014. I have TWCrime but I've been too chicken to read it. lol
