Top Ten Tuesday – My Top Ten Anticipated Books of 2015
Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Anticipated Books of 2015
Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
1- Half a War by Joe Abercrombie
I’m looking forward to this more than most books, but it’s sad there will be only 3. Gritty, action-packed, this is probably the best high-fantasy series I’ve read.
2- Make Me (Jack Reacher) by Lee Child
You know what you’re getting with a Reacher book, without it being predictable. What you get is action, violence, fast pace and some of the best writing ever put on page. Lee Child is the boss.
3- The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard) by Rick Riordan
I’m not a big fan of Heroes of Olympus, but I grew up with the original Percy Jackson books. I’ve been looking forward to this series ever since Riordan started rumors about it. Norse mythology is epic, so this series should be likewise.
4- The Last Star (The 5th Wave trilogy) by Rick Yancey
The huge twist ending in book 2 made this book a no-brainer for the list.
5- Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas
If these books keeps getting darker and gritter they it could turn into an epic YA high-fantasy series.
6- The Devil’s Only Friend by Dan Wells
This series never disappoints with twists and fast-pace. The fourth book in the John Cleaver series should be great.
7- The Hollow Boy (Lockwood & Co. #3) by Jonathan Stroud
The first book was funny and action-packed, the second was both of those things but a bit similar to the first. I hope the third book changes things round, but Stroud is a genius (Rick Riordan’s words as well as mine) so it shouldn’t disappoint.
8- Demon Road by Derek Landy
Cool cover, and Landy can write humor, horror and action better than most. This new series looks promising from the extract I’ve read.
9- Trigger Mortis by Anthony Horowitz
Anthony Horowitx wrote the latest Holmes novel, House of Silk, and did the character and Doyle justice. He can write action well, so this new Bond novel should be wicked.
10- Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch
Snow Like Ashes, the first book in this series, was pretty interesting. If the sequel is a little darker and gritter, this could turn into a solid high-fantasy series.
