Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is the top ten anticipated books for the rest of 2015. How are we already halfway through the year already?
The Lost and the Found – Cat Clarke
I adore Cat Clarke’s books; they’re so well-written and often very taut and tense. The Lost and the Found about a family whose daughter is abducted and then found thirteen years later sounds like it will be a gripping, if difficult, read.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness
I love Patrick Ness’ writing and the concept of this book with what life is like when you’re not the ‘chosen one’ is enough to put it on my must-read shelf!
The Devil You Know – Trish Doller
I love Trish Doller’s writing, she’s a brilliant contemporary YA novel and her books are full of the feels. This road-trip gone wrong novel just calls to me.
Judged – Liz de Jager
I love Liz’s writing, she writes awesome YA with great characters and real mythology shaping the world building. As much as I don’t want this series to end, I know it will be great!
Way Down Dark – James Smythe
I loved The Testimony and so am super intrigued by James Smythe’s first YA book. Plus with a tagline like this, how can you resist? “There’s one truth on Australia: You fight or you die. Usually both.” I was lucky enough to snag a proof of this at a recent Chapter 5 event so will be starting it soon.
These Shallow Graves – Jennifer Donnelly
I love Donnelly’s writing and this book just sounds so cool. I was excited for it before I heard Hot Key Books speaking about it at their latest blogger brunch and now I just need it right now!
The Dead House – Dawn Kurtagich
Urban legend, diaries, psychological thrillers? This just sounds so good, I have to read it. Plus it involves use of reports and transcripts which I always love.
Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
I attended an event at Waterstones Piccadilly and Leigh read a tiny extract of this and it’s so good. I cannot wait to read it.
Lair of Dreams – Libba Bray
As you may know if you’re a regular reader, I loved the Diviners and so am incredibly excited the sequel is finally coming out.
Trollhunters – Guillermo Del Toro and Daniel Kraus
I love Guillermo Del Toro’s films and this books sounds brilliant. The Hot Key Books team told us a little about it and it sounds so good. I cannot wait to read this!
