Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
Like many of you, I’ve got my favorite authors. Some of them even release books on a regular, yearly basis, which always gives me something to look forward to. Others seem to come out with a new book every few years. Most of my anticipated releases for this year are not single offerings, but the latest in that author’s series. So let’s get right to it, shall we?
Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2015
For once, I have actually sorted this top ten list – in order of expected publication. I’ve added cover art where I can, but for some books this has not been announced yet.
Make Me (Jack Reacher) by Lee Child (Thriller)
8 September 2015
I started reading the Jack Reacher books probably 10 years ago. I’ve read them all and look forward to the new fall release each year. This is book #19 in the series. For a while, the newer Reacher’s weren’t as good as the beginning of the series, but the last few novels have been really good.
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson (Memoir)
22 September 2015
Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike) by Robert Galbraith (Thriller/Mystery)
I’m currently reading The Silkworm, working on it in between ARC books I’ve received. I really like Cormoran Strike and am looking forward to the third book in the series.
The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard) by Rick Riordan (Fantasy/Middle Grade?)
6 October 2015
I share the Percy Jackson book series with my two boys. We read the books, listen to them on CD during car rides, and have so much fun discussing events. I’m hoping that we like the new Magnus Chase series just as much as the two Percy Jackson series. (And also hoping he’s related to Annabeth Chase, so we can see Annabeth and Percy again.)
Time’s Divide (The Chronos Files) by Rysa Walker (Time Travel/Young Adult)
20 October 2015
I read the first in this trilogy, Timebound, and I loved it. It’s got time travel that results in alternate timelines, and is so interesting. (I love time travel!) I started the second book but had to put it aside to get through some ARCs and I haven’t picked it back up yet. I may just wait until this third and final book comes out and then read them back-to-back.
A Banquet of Consequences (Inspector Lynley) by Elizabeth George (Scotland Yard Mystery)
27 October 2015
I’m a few behind on the Inspector Lynley books, but that didn’t stop me from preordering this latest Lynley novel. This series used to be my number one favorite, must read until 2005’s With No One as Witness. She killed off a major character, and I (like some of the characters in the series) have never been the same since. I currently have two Lynley’s on my shelf to read before I get to this new one. I’m hoping to fall back in love with these books, as I really used to enjoy them so much. She just broke my heart with that book.
Silent Nights: Christmas Mysteries (British Library Crime Classics) edited by Martin Edwards
I recently read two collections of British Crime short stories edited by Martin Edwards, Resorting to Murder: Holiday Mysteries and Capital Crimes: London Mysteries. I love both the Christmas holidays and British mysteries. You can guess that I am looking forward to reading this collection of mysteries centered around Christmas.
The Crossing (Harry Bosch/Mickey Haller) by Michael Connelly (Thriller/Mystery)
3 November 2015
In 2005, I read The Lincoln Lawyer, and I’ve had a love affair with Michael Connelly ever since. I’ve read all of his Bosch novels, all of his Mickey Haller novels, and most of his stand alones. I love these books where he combines the worlds of (LAPD detective) Bosch and his half-brother (defense laywer) Haller.
Winter (Lunar Chronicles) Marissa Meyer (Fantasy/Young Adult)
10 November 2015
Here’s another one where I’m behind on the series. I’ve only read Cinder. Great book, I just haven’t had time to keep on reading this series. I’m adding Winter to this list because I am looking forward to reading it (once I finish Scarlet and Cress). 🙂 I’ve got until November, so hopefully I can get caught up.
Pull by Anne Riley (Time Travel/Young Adult)
8 December 2015
I stumbled across this book purely by accident, through someone’s book blog. (Forgive me, but I can’t remember whose it was!) This book sounds right up my alley – I love anything to do with time travel. I don’t buy many books anymore (I borrow from the library instead), but thanks to the time travel aspect, this is one of the few books I’ve preordered.
What books are you looking forward to? Are we eagerly awaiting the same book? What book did I miss that I should be looking forward to? Comment away, and link back to your own top ten list if you’ve got one.
