This week, the lovely people at The Broke and Bookish asked us about our most anticipated books coming out in 2015. I actually haven’t read a lot of series that are still going on so I came up with only seven books but also decided to throw in three book to movie adaptations that I’m looking forward to next year!
- Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – I am a massive Cassandra Clare fan and The Infernal Devices is my favourite trilogy of all time so this is probably the most anticipated book of 2015 for me. I’m already in love with the characters because of their introduction in City of Heavenly Fire and so I’m hoping it doesn’t get pushed back to 2016.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – Sarah J. Maas has quickly became an auto-read author for me because of the way she writes so although I know little of this new series, I’m really looking forward to it.
- The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan – This man is also an auto-read author because his books are hilarious and full of great plots so naturally, I was really happy to see that he’s writing stories to do with mythology. Which brings me to the next one…
- Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan – Just the idea behind this book makes me so happy. Percy Jackson is up there in my Top 5 male protagonists of all time because of his humor and occasional clueless-ness and so to have another book written from his POV is just a gift from Rick Riordan because he knows how much we love Percy.
- I Was Here by Gayle Forman – I’ve read and loved Gayle Forman before and I’m looking forward to this one purely because I think her writing is beautiful.
- The Copper Gauntlet by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black – The Iron Trial was a really good starter to the series and because of this I think it has so much potential to be a really memorable middle-grade fantasy. Not to mention I kind of love Cassandra Clare and Holly Black.
- My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga – I actually haven’t heard about this one until last week when I was looking at everyone’s Top Ten Tuesdays lists and when I looked up the synopsis I found that it looks like something I would really enjoy so I had to include it here too.
And Top Three book to movie adaptations in 2015:
- Fallen (by Lauren Kate) – I’ve been waiting for this film so long and so the fact that it’s actually coming to the big screen next year is really exciting and I can’t wait!
- Mockingjay: Part 2 (by Suzanne Collins) – I just saw Part 1 in the cinemas and so the excitement for Part 2 is sky-high. Next year, I want to go to one of those Hunger Games marathons and then see the midnight premiere of Part 2 which I’m pumped about.
- Insurgent (by Veronica Roth) – I think I was one of the minority that actually liked the teaser trailer for Insurgent. Loads of people started ranting about how it’s so different from the book and I personally don’t agree but that’s a rant in itself for another day. I’m really looking forward to see Shailene Woodley as Tris again.
