2015… I haven’t finished my “to-be-read” list of 2014! Now I’m having to start my list for 2015 books? *sigh* Well, lets get started, then! Don’t forget to add links to your TTT or just post your most anticipated debut novels in the comments!
1. My Heart and other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
The closer this book gets to its publication date, the more excited I get! Being a physics nerd myself I want to know what the author threw into this heart-wrenching story. A philosophy based on physics? Please!
2. Lock & Mori by Heather Petty
I said I was going to ween myself from Sherlockian novels for awhile, but they keep been thrown at me from every direction! This one features teenage Sherlock and a female Moriarty who seems to be keeping secrets. Gees, I hope she’s evil. Books just don’t have enough main-female evil characters.
3. Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira
Another long wait for this one, but BOOKS! It’s about a girl who loves books and has book-boyfriends, but falls for a real guy and turns for book heroines for dating advise. Sound familiar? This book could probably be written about 99.9% of people currently reading this. Spooky, huh? I need to see how this one turns out.
4. Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
Alex has schizophrenia, but she’s determined to stay sane long enough to get into college. The thing is, she can’t always tell the difference between fiction and reality. One day one of her made-up people becomes reality and she starts living a normal teenage life. But is it real? Another book that reminds me of Bohemian Rhapsody!
5. The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy
Ohhh… a new mystery/horror/ya-thriller? Yes, please! Stella and Jeane disappear together as kids, Stella returns minutes later not remembering anything. Years later the body of a little girl with red hair washes up after a mudslide and so begins Stella’s search for answers.
6. Ink and Ashes by Valynne E. Maetani
So, Claire finds a letter from her deceased father to her stepfather. Then she finds out that her father was a member of the Yakuza. The title being “INK” and Ashes I would have expected a more elaborate cover featuring an awesome Yakuza tattoo, but I’m still intrigued by the summery.
7. Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falkoff
This basically sounds like Thirteen Reasons Why with music instead of voice recordings. Hayden left a songlist as a suicide note for Sam to figure out why his best friend died. I’m just a glutton for punishment reading these books.
8. Duplicity by N.K. Traver
“A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.”
Umm… yes, please! If my refection started sucking out my hair dye and turned all my clothes into pastel colors we’d have a few problems, too. The geek in me is so seeing a Doctor Who episode in this book. (And… that cover!)
9. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This one has been on my list before. Just an under-dog Redblood that shouldn’t have special powers ends up with the uber powers of a Silverblood. Then they try to pass her off as long lost princess to hide her true nature. Love it!
10. The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace
Johanna is kicked out of her troupe after her father died and forced to work for a lord. At the same time, a magical race of people are looking for a lost princess who was thought to be dead, who looks just like Johanna. But girls that looks like the princess and Johanna keep ending up dead. It’s intriguing me! A magic/fantasy/mystery!
