COLLECTIONS: MOST ANTICIPATED READS OF 2015

14 January 2015

 BECAUSE WHO DOESN'T GET EXCITED ABOUT ALL THESE AMAZING BOOKS AND AHH.
Honestly, the title is a lie because I have a lot more books that I am extremely excited for, but I've decided to randomly pick eight that are relatively near in being published, because if i tried naming them all the post would be more than a mile long, so without further ado:
MOSQUITOLAND by David Arnold | I heard about this book maybe about a couple of weeks ago and I skimmed a few reviews and read the premise and woah. I need this book in my life because it is apparently amazing and I wanna go on a road trip so-
ENSNARED by A.G Howard | Most of you all read my review of Unhinged. You should know why. 
THE WINNER'S CRIME by Marie Rutkoski | If my review of The Winner's Curse didn't shoot you right in the feels then I worry about you. BECAUSE THAT ENDING. And apparently the ending of this second novel does even worse on the heart than the first. *Buys bandages*.
CONSPIRACY OF BLOOD AND SMOKE by Anne Blankman | Surprisingly I loved the first in this series a whole lot more than I thought I would, mostly because it explored the character of Hitler's 'niece', which is very very intriguing.
UNDER A PAINTED SKY by Stacey Lee | The cover is as gorgeous as the premise sounds. #Nuff said.
RED QUEEN by Victoria Aveyard | Hadn't heard of this until about a week ago but it sounds intriguing and the cover is pretty and that premise has potential. Let me at it.
FAIREST by Marissa Meyer | QUEEN LEVANA IS COMING. *Would add gif but; coding effort*
BLACK DOVE, WHITE RAVEN by Elizabeth Wein | Read my reviews of Rose Under Fire and Code Name Verity and then try to explain why this book would not be on this list.

  2. 1. Mosquitoland -- Ahh, I love the title for Mosquitoland. Even though I hate mosquitoes, those pesky little bastards. And I find the blurb for the book SO intriguing! Fingers crossed that the early reviews are right, and that this book will turn out to be fantastic.

    3. The Winner's Crime -- I think I must one of the only people left on this planet who hasn't yet read The Winner's Curse. But I do own the book, and it IS staring at me from my shelf, so that counts a little, right?! I don't know how long I can resist all the positive reviews for it, though...

    4. Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke -- I know, I didn't expect Prisoner of Night and Fog to be so good, but it was. I didn't like it as much as Elizabeth Wein's Rose Under Fire, but it was still pretty dang close, and I found the romance really sweet (for once!). Can't wait to see what the sequel has in store for us this time!

    6. Red Queen -- I HAVE THIS BOOK IN MY KINDLE. *fist pump* I loooove the cover to bits. It's just so badass and haunting and who knew a simple cover could work so well for a fantasy? I've been seeing a lot of rave reviews for it, so I'm really hoping that it's as good as everyone says it is.

    7. Fairest -- Still need to read Scarlet and Cress, oops...

    8. Black Dove, White Raven -- I DIDN'T KNOW ELIZABETH WEIN WAS COMING OUT WITH ANOTHER BOOK, BUT OMG, GIMME. Okay, I just read the blurb. I love that Elizabeth's stretching out from historical genres other than WWII, and eeep, the book even has a cover. It's not the best, but hey, I'll take anything I can get.

    Yup, I need most of these books, like, YESTERDAY.

    1. *takes deep breath before replying*

      1. YES BECAUSE IS THOSE REVIEWS DECEIVE ME THEN UGH that means the cover is deceiving too so sad face. And mhmmmmm mosquitoes OMG *slaps at face*. I just realised mosquitoes has a 'toe' in it I HAVE ALWAYS SPELT IT WRONG.

      2. *book lands on your head* *snaps at you like Hagrid's book in Harry Potter, READ ME; it screams. READ MEEEEEE.

      3. Elizabeth Wein comparisons do nothing for a book's ego m'dear.

      4. LUCKY, but why haven't you read it yet huh?

      5. MEGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

      6. YES I KNOW MY REACTION WHEN I FOUND OUT AND YES AND I KNOW BUT HEY THE WORDS ARE MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT.

      I needed them, like, last YEAR.

    1. FACE HER TRUE FACE STEPHANIE. YOU CAN DO IT!

      And yaay I'm glad you liked it because I'M SCARED I WON'T LIKE IT AS MUCH AS I THINK I WANT TO. [if that makes sense?]

      Thank you!

  4. I really enjoyed Red Queen and hope you do too!! :) The Winner's Crime was a metaphorical punch in the gut, but it was oh so good (the book, not the punch). I just got Under A Painted Sky, and it sounds really interesting! I NEED Fairest too, I can't wait to learn more about Levana. Nice picks !

    1. RACHEL WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME. You've gone and made me jealous you have already read/own some of my most anticipated reads of the YEAR.

      LEAVE.

  6. OMG BLACK DOVE, WHITE RAVEN FOR SURE. *flails endlessly* Although I have series trust issues with Elizabeth Wein so I don't know why I keep reading her books. >.> 5-stars always but SO HARD ON THE FEELS.

    1. BUT TRUST ISSUES WITH AUTHORS ARE NORMAL IF IT'S A HEART-CRUSHING BOOK AKA AMAZING.

  7. I REALLY can't wait for Red Queen. Need. It. Now.

  8. I cannot wait to read Under a painted sky. As you said, that cover had me in a second flat!
    Also, Fairest will be awesome. Not only because of Levana but because of Winter! I hope she'll be there, I loved her character in Cress so so much!!
    And last but not least, the new one by Elizabeth Wein. Code name Verity was so heart-wrenching, I cried for hours when I read it!!

    A book you should be on the look out for is The wrath and the dawn. It comes out in May; I read the prologue and OMG it was mesmerizing!! *-*

    Ps. I have a blog as well, if you want to stop by I'd appreciate it so much! It's both in Italian and in English :3 -> http://frannieinthepages.blogspot.com/

  10. Aah. There are just so many good books. In some senses this could be seen as a problem, because how to get to them all, but in most it is not because SO MANY GOOD BOOKS.
    I’m super excited for Red Queen, and have to read Code Name Verity so I can swoon over it’s amazingness (it’ll be awful at this stage if I don’t like it!), and Mosquitoland has a nice cover. I love the colours and design. Very nice.
