Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Books of 2015 // Listopia


Just a short list today inspired by the meme created Broke and the Bookish: Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015

1.   Winter by Marissa Myer Release date: 10th November 2015

 
Can Cinder, Cress, Scarlet and Winter unite to defeat Queen Levana?

I really need to get back into this series!!!

2.   Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by lots of writers Release Date: 18th August

 
A YA Horror anthology with stories by Marie Lu, A.G.Howard and lots more

I’ve never really read YA horror so this sounds great to me!

3.   Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon Release Date:

A girl who is allergic to the world and has not her left her house or spoken to anyone besides her nurse or mother in 17 years sees her new neighbours moving in. One of them, Olly, wears black and spots her staring. This can only end in disaster.

I’m intrigued by this premise, how can this end and how will the story progress? Lots of questions!

4.   The Seed Collector by Scarlett Thomas Release Date: 2nd July 2015

 
Aunt Oleander dies and she leaves each of her remaining family members a seed. A haunting contemporary tale about a family secret.

The book cover caught my eye, got to be honest, but the story plotline has kept me in interested.

5.   A Whole New World by Liz Braswell Release Date: 1st September 2015

 
A Disney re-telling. What would have happened if Jafar had got to the genie’s lamp before Aladdin? A princess turned revolutionary, a poor boy turned saviour.

This is supposed to be a re-telling but it just seems like the same tale with a slight plot-twist but since I’ve never read Aladdin maybe it will be interesting to read the re-telling before the original

6.   The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness Release Date: 27th August 2015

 
What if you were not the chosen one, what if you were the best friend of the chosen one just trying to live your life: like Mikey? What’s your story?

Really interesting premise! It’s one of those stories that we’ve always wondered about but rarely ever get whole books about! Patrick Ness rocks!

7.  A Thousand Nights by E.K.Johnston Release Date: (expected) 6th October 2015

 
Lo-Melkhiin as already killed 300 girls he chooses the prettiest and takes them, like The Girls sister. She can’t let him take her so offers herself. But night after night he comes to hear her stories and night after night she survives. He was not always a cruel ruler.

This book caught my attention as its part-fantasy, part mystery, an odd mix. The bookcover is stunning and I really want to know what is happening! One to look forward to!

Happy Reading!

P.S. Did anyone else notice they released the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 trailer todayhow cheeky of them! Here’s a link for you to go watch if you didn’t know:
