2015 Must Be Mine List

I always curl up with several rereads at the end of a year, and as I revisit old friends I look forward to and anticipate all the lovely new titles to come in the new year. And now that it's actually here, it is time for my 2015 Must Be Mine list:



 And no covers (or titles in a couple of cases) yet on these, but I cannot wait:

 Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan
The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowen
The Raven Cycle #4 by Maggie Stiefvater
The Elemental Trilogy #3 by Sherry Thomas
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah MacLean

And you and the coming year? Which titles are giving you grabby hands?

  1. Love, Lucy is pretty fabulous. I think it's time for me to pick up A.C. Guaghan and Anna Lee Huber.

  2. Yay for a new Patricia Briggs and Lisa Kleypas!


    I also found myself nodding at all the titles on your cover-less list - 2015 promises much :-)

  3. I'm just starting Love, Lucy and I like it so far! Also, Crimson Bound! Love the cover and I'm determined to love the story inside too :)

  4. A thousand times yes to the new Alpha and Omega book. I can't wait to get my hands on that one.

  5. I can't wait to have Heather Demetrios' book in my hands as a final copy. That book has my heart<3


    I'm aching for Carry On. Time is already moving at warp speed so October will be here before I know it lol.

  6. Good to hear! I just haven't gotten around to my copy yet.

  7. Indeed! I just . . . I need that Rees Brennan book. I NEED IT.

  8. Lol. I know the feeling. In the case of Crimson Bound, I feel rather sure I shall.

  9. Oh, man. Anna + Charles. Yeah.

  10. Same! I can't wait to see how pretty it is IRL.


    I'm still grinning like a fool over Carry On's impending existence. AHHHH.

  11. It's funny how I know only about the last one with cover (and I've read it a few days ago) and the Raven Cycle finale - of, how I'm waiting for that one :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes to the Lisa Kleypas! It's been too long waiting for that one :) I haven't read Heather Demetrios but I am starting to get psyched for it as I see so much love for her everywhere. And I am also really curious about Fallout.

    I am also so out of the loop for upcoming titles for 2015. Can hardly even believe it is 2015!

  13. I'm really looking forward to the Lisa Kleypas. Yay for Joe Travis!

    This is the year that I try my first Patricia Briggs. I've seen nothing but good things around the internet about her so I wanna give her a try. Great list!

  14. What did you think of it?

    And YES, the Raven Cycle finale. I can hardly contain my feelings.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I can't either! What in the world happened to 2014?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lol. Yep. Those Travis boys. Hope it's good!


    You must definitely try Patricia Briggs. Start with MOON CALLED.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Fingers crossed on Brown Eyed Girl!


    Ooh, I have that one. I'll try it soon. Thanks!

  18. It is pretty good even though it's different than anything I've read before, so it is really hard to compare. I am going to read the first one too (the companion, if we can say that), as I've heard great things about it as well.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm happy to hear that! I really enjoyed the first one.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My pleasure! Let me know how it goes.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I need Girl Before a Mirror, Once Upon a Rose and The Shameless Hour too! Really curious about I'll Meet You There as well.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Pssst . . . it's really good!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can't wait for Brown-Eyed Girl, Tell the Wind and Fire, Crimson Bound, or The Raven Cycle #4 either. Also the new Thomas and McLeans ... ugh, you have such good taste.

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …
