December 2: Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2015

(Most of these don’t have covers, sadly.)

curious calpurnia

1. Curious World of Calpurnia Tate; Jacqueline Kelly. I read this book about a young girl struggling to balance her parent’s expectations with her desire for scientific observations, and quite liked it–this sequel should show more of that journey.

2. Ebon; Robin McKinley. The second book in a series about where pegasi and certain humans are connected by magic, and a princess whose connection to her pegasus is unusual.

lair of dreams

3. Lair of Dreams; Libba Bray. A sequel to a book set in 1920s New York, with people with special powers–and some rather scary happenings. Though I wasn’t completely happy with the main character in this book, I’m hoping for some development.

magic shifts

4. Magic Shifts; Ilona Andrews. After the big changes that happened in the last book, I have been waiting patiently for this one. Magic and misadventure and a big scary werelion await!

5. Public Enemies; Ann Aguirre. It turns out you can have what you wish for–no careful wording required–but it’s what happens after all your dreams come true that’s the real downside. Because you have to pay those favors back…

6. Rithmatist #2 (Untitled); Brandon Sanderson. Magic with chalk drawings! Awesome. And feral chalk-creatures that… eat people. Every world has trade-offs, right?

7. Royal Wedding; Meg Cabot. When I was younger, I loved these books and was annoyed with the movies for changing so very many things. I really hope this follow up doesn’t let me down.

8. The Shores of Spain; Kathleen Cheney. A series about sea-folk in a city where their existence is outlawed, and without giving anything away, the last book had some big changes I’m eager to see play out.

9. The Thorn of Emberlain; Scott Lynch. More Gentlemen Bastards, please!

10. Winter; Marissa Meyer. This isn’t the first time this book in the cyborg Cinderella series has made it to a TTT list, and it probably won’t be the last.

  1. I’ve been wanting to read the first Calpurnia Tate books – it’s on my Goodreads TBR. I’m assuming it’s good if you’re looking forward to the sequel?
    My TTT!

      I liked it. Calpurnia is an interesting character, strong without being unreasonably so, and there’s complicated dynamics between the generations of her family that help shape her choices. And I always admire someone for questioning the system.

    I’ve just read Burn for Me – and really enjoyed it!! Might have to go and look at some of IAs previous works now!
    Lynn 😀

  3. Oh thanks for the heads-up for the second book in The Rithmatist. I impulse bought the first one for obvious reasons but still haven’t made my way to it!
