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 :)

  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.

  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!

    ReplyDelete
  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.

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Tiffy is in a massive, massive bind. Out on her ear after breaking up with her exceptionally controlling boyfriend, she needs an inexpensive place to live and she needs it yesterday. Despite her …

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …
