13 Upcoming 2015 Releases I'm Excited About

It's the middle of 2015 already! Crazy, huh? So how's your reading year going? I've had a terrific year so far. I've read almost all 4- and 5-star books and I'm well on my way to reaching (and even surpassing) my goal of 65 books! I've been gripped by some really awesome reads this winter and spring, and I'm hoping the summer and fall will bring just as great of a bounty.

There are lots of promising new releases coming out in the next few months, and for this week's Top Ten Tuesday list hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, we're talking about the 10 new books we're most looking forward to for the rest of 2015. (P.S. This list was originally 10 books long and then I realized I forgot two, and then I discovered a new one! I didn't have the heart to leave any off -- so we have 12!)

Release date: today! (June 9)
A few months ago I read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" and I was thrilled to see that Annie Barrows has a new book coming out. This one is way, way longer than "Guernsey" but I definitely want to give it a try. It's also historical fiction and set in West Virginia, 1938.

Release date: June 23
I love Janet E., and I especially like her new-ish Wicked series. I'm really excited for "Wicked Charms," the third installment.

Release date: June 23
This book sounds fantastic and right up my alley! I've already got it requested from the library so hopefully I'll get it soon after it comes out!

Release date: July 2
I'm so intrigued by this book! It sounds like it'll be a fun and magical adventure. Also, I'm curious why there's a slightly sinister-looking octopus on the cover!

Release date: July 14
I just recently read (and loved) "Ready Player One" and I was so psyched when I found out Ernest Cline has another book coming out! (P.S. I like this cover so much better than "Ready Player One"!)

Release date: July 28
This book has gotten a lot of hype and I hope it lives up to my expectations!

Release date: July 28
"The Paris Wife" was one of my favorite books of 2012, so I'm looking forward to McLain's latest. It's about another real-life woman, the extraordinary-sounding Beryl Markham in 1920s Kenya.

Release date: August 4
Well, I've read every single other book in the Meg Langslow series so of course I'll be reading this one too. It's a Halloween mystery, so I'll save it for September or October.

Release date: September 22
"Let's Pretend This Never Happened" was ah-maz-ing and so, so funny. I think "Furiously Happy" will still be laugh-out-loud humorous, but it's about Lawson's battle with mental illness so it will likely have some more serious moments too. I love the crazy-eyed raccoon on the cover -- he fits just perfectly with the title.

Release date: September 29
I loved "Me Before You" and I'm excited to see where life has taken Louisa!

Release date: October 6
I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to own this new full-color illustrated edition of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"! I was super-excited when the box-set with the new cover art came out a couple years ago because I loved seeing another part of the story depicted artistically. What am I going to do with a whole entire book of Harry Potter pictures?! I'm just a little miffed that this book isn't being released on September 1st -- which fortuitously happens to fall on a Tuesday this year. I can't be the only one who thinks that would be perfect!?

Release date: October 13
One of my favorite literary heroines, Lady Emily, returns in a mystery set in the south of France. This is the tenth Lady Emily book and I've loved them all. I also like how the books are released every October -- the perfect time for a cozy-ish historical mystery!

Release date: October 20
Kate Morton's "The Secret Keeper" was one of my favorite novels of 2013 and I've been meaning to read more of her books ever since. I am going to make it a point to read this one! And it comes out exactly a week before my 30th birthday. Hopefully we'll be taking some kind of fun getaway, so perhaps I'll be reading this sitting on a beach or relaxing by a river in the mountains surrounded by colorful leaves!


  1. Great list!! I've read some of the Stephanie Plum books, but I haven't tried her wicked series yet. I'll have to give that a try.

    Here is my TTT:

    1. The Wicked books are really fun. I feel like the later Stephanie Plum books (anything after maybe 14) have been pretty formulaic and a bit disappointing (though I'll still read all of them!), but the Wicked series has everything the first Plum books did -- humor, a little suspense, a little romance, a little quirkiness. You should check them out! They're a bit on the fluffy side, but sometimes that's ok! :)

  2. I love Janet Evanovich. Her Stephanie Plum series always entertains me. I'm looking forward to the Wicked Charms as well!

  3. You've got some great picks here - including a few I hadn't heard of, so thank you! (I'm also intrigued by the Sinister Octopus. What could he be up to??)

  4. Great list! I can't wait for Armada either. I loved Ready Player One so much.

  5. There's a bunch I haven't heard of and especially HOW DID I NOT KNOW THERE WAS GOING TO BE A SEQUEL TO ME BEFORE YOU?????? Ahhhhhh this makes me soooo excited! Thanks for sharing!
    Here's my list:

  6. I just read and reviewed The Watchmaker of Filigree Street and found a lot to love, though my experience was a bit marred by a VERY poorly-formatted ARC. I hope you end up enjoying it!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
