Books I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On In 2015

It's no secret that I am a book lover.

A "Bookaholic", if you will.

I just took a look at my "To Read" list on Goodreads and I have 391 listed.

Don't judge me. (Or judge me. Either way.)

Anyway, out of all of these books, there are some that I am just dying to get my hands on.

I mean I would sell little portion of my soul to get these books tomorrow.

I'm kidding! Totally kidding! (Mostly.)

*Ahem.*

But seriously, I am really excited about some of these books and I CANNOT wait to devour them.

So here is a short list (and by no means extensive) of the books I can't wait to get my hands on in 2015.

End of Days (Penryn & the End of Days, #3)

This series, you guys. THIS SERIES.
*Sigh.*
I love this series. No doubt, one of my favorites of all time.
I love how dark and macabre this series is.
It is brutal. It is harsh. It will trample your soul.
But...
It is also beautiful. And hopeful. And moments that take your breath away.
This is a dystopia. (Score.) And it's a series. (Squee!) And it's about angels. (Knocked it out of the park.)
If you have never read Susan Ee's Angelfall series, I challenge you to read the first book.
You will be so glad you did.
This is number one on my "To Read" list.


The Darkest Part of the Forest

Oh, Holly. How you played with my emotions in "The Coldest Girl In Coldtown".
How you batted me around like a cat plays with a mouse.
But I guess I am a glutton for punishment because I loved it.
I loved the characters. I loved the dystopia. I loved the world you created. And, if I'm honest, I loved the vampires.
I would straight up punt a baby goat through a field goal to read this right now.
Oh look! Just got an email from the library saying this book is on the hold shelf for me.
All baby goats are safe.


Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars, #2)

Veronica Mars. VERONICA MARS.
I really don't think I need to elaborate further.

Polaris (Avalon, #2)
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

The first book in the series, Avalon, reminded me a lot of the series, Firefly, and I loved that series.
Nathan Fillion.
*Swoon.*
Sci-Fi. A bunch of rag tag loners who find themselves thrown together under circumstance to create a semblance of family. All while flying on a worn out ship in outerspace, running from a ruthless crime boss, trying to find their leaders who happen to be their mom and dad.
Yeah.
Count me in.


The Glass Arrow

I am a huge fan of Kristen's 'Article 5' series so I really excited to see what happens in this one.
There is a lot of positive buzz on this one.

Fall with Me (Wait for You, #4)
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

Oh, Jennifer. I think we all know that I would read whatever book you decided to write.
It could be named 'Dead Skunk' and I would be like "Oh my goodness! I have to read her new book! I MUST READ IT!"
True story.
Jennifer does romance like no ones business. She knocks it out of the park EVERY TIME.
Looking forward to this one like a fat kid loves cake.

Shadow Scale (Seraphina, #2)
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

Seraphina is the first book in this series. 
I loved it. It was so different from anything I had ever read.
It is about a young woman who is part human and part dragon in a world where the abundant humans loathe and massacre dragons.
This story reminded me of Sophie Jordan's Firelight series (which I loved) but a grown up version.
This is at at the top of my list.

Miss Mayhem (Rebel Belle, #2)
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

Rachel Hawkins wrote the 'Hex Hall' series which was a blast to read. I adored it.
I read "Rebel Belle", the first in the Rebel Belle series, and I was hooked.
It is so much fun. It is funny, sweet and touching.
I mean who can't love books that successfully combine teen angest, southern charm, Greek mythology and humor all in one.
Answer: You can't.

Crimson Bound
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

Last year, I read 'Cruel Beauty' and I fell in love.
Rosamund recreates epic fairy tales in her own words with her own spin.
I cannot wait to see what ancient fairy tale she tackles in this story and how it all plays out.

Hold Me Like a Breath (Once Upon a Crime Family, #1)
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

The buzz around this book is too much to pass up. Looking forward to seeing if this is as good as the hype.

Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood, #2)
(Courtesy of Goodreads)

The first book in the series, Fire and Flood, was one of my favorites of last year. If this books is half as good as that one, I will be content.
Dystopia? Check. Series? Check. Romance? Check.
THIS IS MY JAM.

So what are you guys looking forward to reading this year? I'd love to hear from you.

I am always on the lookout for my next favorite book!
