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.

Which book is everyone else most anticipating this year? 


About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.

  1. I have so many questions that need answering in The Last Star since The Infinite Sea didn’t actually do much for me. But regardless, I’m excited to see how it’ll all end!

    Joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts.

  2. I had Queen of Shadows on my list this week too and Demon Road as well. I’m not sure if I’ll read Rick Riordan’s new Norse series because I don’t know much about Norse mythology and don’t know if I’d like it, plus this book doesn’t have the draw of Percy!
    My TTT:

  3. There are a lot of good books released this year–plenty to choose from.
