Top Ten (Actually Eleven) Most Anticipated Books for 2015

Top Ten Tuesday

I don’t really track new releases if I’m not in the middle of a series, which I’m not currently, so I had to do some research…but as you can see, I found quite a lot of new releases to be excited about! (I didn’t realize until I had already written this post that it was supposed to be debut novels…some of these are debuts, some aren’t. Sorry XD)

  1. The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins. I’d been hearing a lot about this book, and actually tried to order it on Amazon (where, oddly, it said that it was “out of print”) late last year before realizing that it wouldn’t be published until this year. I’ve pre-ordered it and I can’t wait until it’s out! Projected release: January 13, 2015. 
  1. The Liar’s Chair – Rebecca Whitney. This sounds like it’ll be very similar to The Silent Wife, which is easily one of the best books I read last year. All the reviews I’ve seen have been overwhelmingly positive, so I’m really looking forward to this one. Projected release: January 15, 2015
  1. The Forgotten Girls – Sara Blaedel. When a park ranger discovers the body of a girl with a distinctive scar on her face, Louise Rick, the new commander of the Missing Persons Department, finds that the girl was apparently already issued a death certificate…30 years ago. Projected release: February 3, 2015
  1. The Glittering World – Robert Levy. A young man returning to the idyllic Canadian community where he was born begins to discover that everything he believes about his life is carefully crafted fiction. As he begins to remember his childhood, he and his friends will all have to face their pasts—and a mysterious race of beings known by the locals as the Other Kind. Projected release: February 10, 2015 
  1. The Damned – Andrew Pyper. Danny Orchard’s memoir about his near-death experience in a fire that claimed the life of his twin sister Ashleigh is a best-seller, but despite his resulting fame and fortune, he hasn’t been able to enjoy life—his dead sister has haunted him for the past two decades, and has now set her sights on his new wife and son. Sounds awesomely spooky! Projected release: February 10, 2015 
  1. The Country of Ice Cream Star – Sandra Newman. A dystopian story in which America has been ruled by children for several generations due to a disease called Posies, which ensures that no one survives past their late teens. When fifteen-year-old Ice Cream Star’s brother contracts Posies, she goes on a quest for the cure. Projected release: February 10, 2015 
  1. Find Me – Laura van den Berg. A mysterious Alzheimer’s-like illness sweeps the nation, and one woman, finding herself immune, admits herself to a hospital meant to study the survivors. Laura van den Berg’s debut novel sounds incredibly fascinating. Projected release: February 17, 2015 
  1. Touch – Claire North. As he’s dying—as he’s being murdered—Kepler reaches out to his killer in one last bid for mercy. He touches the killer’s hand, and suddenly he’s looking down at his own dying body. Kepler has discovered an incredible talent: he can jump from body to body, living in different hosts and experiencing the world through their eyes. Projected release: February 24, 2015  
  1. Finders Keepers – Stephen King. The second installment of the trilogy that began with Mr. Mercedes last year, Finders Keepers as well as the third installment of the trilogy, yet to be named, will center around the City Center Massacre that opens Mr. Mercedes. I really liked Mr. Mercedes, and I’m looking forward to reading more. Projected release: June 2, 2015 
  1. The Fold – Peter Clines. An old government friend presents protagonist Mike Erikson with a challenge that he is uniquely qualified to solve: scientists may have found a way to make teleportation a reality, but something seems to be going terribly wrong with the project… Projected release: June 2, 2015 
  1. The Bazaar of Bad Dreams – Stephen King. Uncle Stevie will be releasing a new collection of short stories, containing many of the previously-published but difficult-to-find stories released since Just After Sunset. Projected release: November 30, 2015 

Lots of great stuff coming out this year! Luckily for me, most of the books I’m excited about are coming out in January or February. Truth time: I actually preordered all of these as a Christmas present to myself, so now I’ll have at least one new book a week during January and February, and two in June! Guarantee that by the time the June release dates come out I’ll have forgotten that I preordered them already, so it’ll be a nice surprise. Either that or I’ll be disputing the Amazon charges on my credit card…

What new releases are you most looking forward to in 2015?

  1. The Forgotten Girls is absolutely one of the best books Blædel has written. You won’t be able to put it down. The story is hard, thrilling and human. Loved it

    • I was actually lucky enough to get an ARC and I finished it today! Stay tuned for my review—it’s going up the day before the book is released—and a giveaway! 🙂
