2015 has begun my friends.
I’ve heard many people say that 2015 is going to be a really good year for YA. I don’t know if that’s true because… well I haven’t read many ARCs, but there are a few notable releases that I’m going to be keeping an eye out for at the library in the following months.
I have an ARC of this book (courtesy of my wonderful TBTB Secret Santa, Emma @ Awkwordly Emma). I still have yet to read it but I am definitely happy that I got a copy of this already.
Release date: February 10th 2015 by Orion
Love the bright red cover and I’m intrigued by the title.
Release date: April 7th 2015 by Balzer + Bray
I have no clue why but the vague summary pulled me in and I feel like it might be really introspective. And I haven’t seen a single cover with the title written so small on it.
Release date: March 31st 2015 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Have read many rave reviews for this book and it’s a fantasy in one novel. I won’t have to spend too much time dedicated to a series.
Release date: Expected publication: April 28th 2015 by Razorbil
It’s the first novel in YA that I’ve even heard of involving Kpop. As a huge Kpop fan, I’m really hoping that this book is accurate and portrays Korea and Kpop well. It will either be a huge mess or amazing; there is no in between. I’ll probably have very high expectations for this one. On the other hand, I actually have a cover to put on this TTT so now I won’t have to use some random Kpop idol’s picture 🙂
Release date: June 9th 2015 by St. Martin’s Griffin
Indian caste system + beautifully colorful cover = I want.
Release date: May 12th 2015 by Knopf Books for Young Readers
I was actually hesitant about putting this on my TBR (too many contemporaries on it) but then I actually read the summary and yeah I want to read it.
Release date: June 16th 2015 by Harper Teen
I’ve never heard of a book being inspired by A Thousand and One Nights (which I still have to read) but I’m intrigued by this novel.
Release date: May 12th 2015 by Putnam Juvenile
I used to figure skate. I haven’t read a book with figure skating (although I know there is a lot out there) and I’m interested to read this one. I hope it’s accurate because it’d be a shame if it wasn’t. Hopefully the cover isn’t any indication of the story because it already looks like a disaster for figure skates (That concrete is gonna kill those blades).
Release date: January 6th 2015 by Swoon Reads
The idea of a world that’s the exact same as ours, with the exception of knowing your deathdate, piqued my interest. And the alliteration in the title makes it a fun one to say. Denton’s Little Deathdate. Denton’s Little Deathdate. Denton’s Little Deathdate. I’m going to be repeating that a bunch XD
