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!

    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 Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion—a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes. 
Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record, both are likel…

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

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…
