Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!
Since I just recently posted about the sequels I can't wait for read (and it included a number of 2015 releases), I decided to limit myself to either new series or standalones. I don't want to highlight a bunch of books I've already talked about recently!
Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward to in 2015
1. I Was Here by Gayle Forman
Anything by Gayle Forman is an auto-buy for me, and I can't wait to get my hands on this new release! Although I'm not a fan of the cover, I have no doubt that I'll be moved by the story inside.
2. Love, Lucy by April Lindner
I've never read anything by Lindner before, but I absolutely love the idea of A Room with a View retelling. It's one of my favorite classics, and I can't wait to see how the author has updated it!
3. I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
I still haven't read anything by Demetrios, but I've been hearing a lot of buzz about this title. It sounds like there is a lot of depth to this story, and I'm so intrigued by the summary. I'm glad it will be released soon!
4. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
Technically I've already read this release, but I can't wait for it to be available for everyone. It's just as good as Open Road Summer, and Lord has cemented herself on my "favorite authors" list. I highlighted so many quotes!
5. Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
I really enjoyed Golden, but that's all I've read by Kirby. I think the reason I'm so excited for this book is that the summary reminds me of the movie Return to Me, which I absolutely love.
6. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
This list wouldn't be complete with the book that is at the VERY TOP of my list of anticipated 2015 releases. I cannot wait to get my hands on this beauty! If I could only list one book, it would be this one.
7. First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen
While Garden Spells was my least favorite of Allen's novels, I still really enjoyed it. I'm excited for this companion and can't wait to lose myself in the magic of this story.
8. Girl Before a Mirror by Liza Palmer
I've also already read this book, but can you blame me? Palmer is one of my favorite authors, and she's really outdone herself with Girl Before a Mirror. I'm obsessed with the book and can't wait to push it on everyone!
9. The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy
I haven't read anything by McCoy, but I totally added this book to my TBR after I saw the cover on Twitter. Then, I read the summary and knew it was a "me" book. Set right before the Civil War, this one sounds amazing.
10. The Virgin's Daughter by Laura Andersen
I still have to read The Boleyn Trilogy, but I can't help adding this new series to my list. An alternative version of history in which Queen Elizabeth has a daughter?! Sign me up!
