Today's Topic: The 2015 books I most want to read by month

For this freebie week, I've decided to look at the books I'm most looking forward to in 2015 month by month. This was harder than I thought it would be as some months--like February and May--are STACKED with books I can't wait to read while the later months are a bit thin as not all titles have been announced yet (and there are missing covers still). Regardless, I truly am looking forward to each and every one of these 12 titles.

I'm actually reading this one now. If I'm honest it's really not living up to my expectations, but this was the book I was most looking forward to this month.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
This isn't just the book I'm most looking forward to in February, this is the book I'm most looking forward to this year. Gimme, gimme, gimme. 
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
Despite my choices for Feb and March, I really don't read that much fantasy, but this looks amazing. I love the idea of a kick-ass girl taking back her rightful place on the throne. It's very Daenerys from GoT.
99 Days by Katie Cotugno
This looks very charming. I actually just started the author's first book last night. I didn't get very far, but I liked what I've read so far. 
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
Man, it was hard to choose just one for May, but how could I not go with Kasie West. I can't wait to read what I'm sure is going to be another charmer.
Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer
Summer camp and time travel. Just yes, yes to all of it.
Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
The sequel to The Diviners...finally.
The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy
Creepy is right. I'm loving this cover and the story-line of missing girls sounds intriguing. 
Stand-Off by Andrew Smith
The secret to Winger which I adored. I seriously hope I don't have to wait until September to get my hands on this. 
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I never read the Grisha series, but I know that a lot of people loved it. I was sold as soon as I read the synopsis and saw the word heist. That's definitely one of my drop everything words. (Obviously, this isn't the actual cover.)
Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young
This sounds like The Shining for the YA crowd. Sold.
Trouble With Destiny by Lauren Morrill
How charming is this cover? The story on a luxury cruise ship sounds so fun. Can you believe we are already talking about books coming out next December!

Well that's it for me. What did you do for your freebie week? Link me up!

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday

  2. Brilliant list Natalie. I'm particularly looking forward to The Fill In Boyfriend. I love Kasie West's writing. My TTT

  3. Great topic! I hadn't heard of Hotel Ruby but I'll be adding it on my TBR!

  4. Great idea! As far as 99 days go, I was actually slightly disappointed with that one, but it was a good read.

    Thanks for sharing. top 10 series I never finished

  5. Nice topic!! The book covers are nice. I'll have to check out the books you've mentioned. Here's my TTT post for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/01/top-ten-tuesday-authors-id-like-to-meet.html

  6. I am hearing such good things about THE ORPHAN QUEEN and am so excited for it! I loved HOW TO LOVE and am therefore super eager to read 99 DAYS. And yesss, a new Kasie West contemporary novel (though I still need to read PIVOT POINT). I've also heard some majorly epic things about A DARKER SHADE MAGIC, which is good. And I am really digging the sound of HOTEL RUBY!

  8. A Darker Shade of Magic, Fill-in Boyfriend, The Orphan Queen, Lair of Dreams, Six of Crows…can't wait for all of those!!! Great list! ~Pam

  9. I like the way you did your topic by month! Very clever! From your list...ALL FALL DOWN, A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC, THE ORPHAN QUEEN (so good!), THE FILL IN BOYFRIEND, and SIX OF CROWS! And...I still need to read WINGER first! *hides*

  10. I haven't checked out most of the books on your list so I'll definitely do that and maybe I'll start with Hotel Ruby :) and I'm really hoping to read The Creeping.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
