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.

  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.

  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 | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely. My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being Meagan Spooner's wonderful Hunted. But this is the first retelling of my favorite fairy tale that I've read that includes both traditional fantasy and modern contemporary settings. I didn't think it could work. Or, at least, I was skeptical that the one would interfere with the other or that the different dialogues might clash. How happy I was to find that the whole thing played out seamlessly. How happy I am to have discovered Brigid Kemmerer's writin…

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
