As it stands these books are from authors that I have either read books from before, part of a series that I am reading and paperback releases. However, throughout the year when people start talking about debut books or authors I have never heard about I get excited and want to read them as well and put them on my wishlist, so perhaps this list will need updating throughout the year, but as of right now here are my most anticipated releases of 2015, in no particular order. (Also I cant believe it is 2015, I feel like 2014 literally flew by)

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
May 7th 2015
Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill - the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price ...
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
This is probably my most anticipated book of 2015. I love Sarah J Maas I think she is a brilliant writer and it will also be incredible to have another story whilst we wait for the next Throne of Glass book!

Bloodlines: The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead
February 10th 2015
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives.
After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead's New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world . . 
This is the final instalment of the Bloodlines series, I am taking it slow and currently am on the fourth book as I wanted to pace myself so that I can read Silver Shadows next month so I am ready for this book. I love this series I think its incredible, the writing is incredible and Mead has such a fluid writing style. Although on a side note, these books have the worse covers ever, they probably put so many people off from reading it!!

Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman 
April 21st 2015
The follow-up to Anne Blankman's fantastic PRISONER OF NIGHT AND FOG, an explosive, fast-paced thriller set in the shadowy and dangerous world of Nazi Germany. The girl known as Gretchen Whitestone has a secret: she used to be part of Adolf Hitler's inner circle. More than a year ago, she made an enemy of her old family friend and fled Munich to live in Oxford, posing as an ordinary German immigrant. Her love, Daniel Cohen, is a reporter in town, and Gretchen is content. Then a telegram sends Daniel back to Germany, and her world turns upside-down when she learns that Daniel is wanted for murder. To save him, she must return to her homeland and somehow avoid capture and recognition by her former friends, the Nazi elite. And as she and Daniel work to clear his name, they discover a deadly conspiracy stretching from the slums of Berlin to the Reichstag itself. Can they dig up the explosive truth and escape in time - or will Hitler discover them first?

I am so excited for this, the first book was incredible, such a brilliant historical fiction read, it was fast paced, historically accurate with fantastic characters, what else could you need? I hope that we get a similar cover to the UK cover for the first book as I am not a massive fan of this one!

The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski
March 12th 2015

As Kestrel comes closer to uncovering a shocking secret, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. Lies will come undone, and Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them in this second book in the breathtaking Winner's trilogy.
I loved the first book and I have been eagerly awaiting this second instalment, after the ending of the last one I cant wait to read this.

Throne of Glass #4 (currently untitled) by Sarah J Maas
September 10 2015

My new favourite series. I love it so much and I cant wait for this book.

The Heir by Kiera Cass
5th May 2015
Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won Prince Maxon’s heart. Now the time has come for Princess Eadlyn to hold a Selection of her own. Eadlyn doesn’t expect her Selection to be anything like her parents’ fairy-tale love story. But as the competition begins, she may discover that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she always thought.
The selection was supposed to be just a trilogy but Kiera Cass decided that the story wasn't finished just yet so I guess these next three books, starting with the Heir, are like a sequel, set in the same world but will different characters although there will be cameos from the original characters (much like the Bloodlines series). Although these books have a few problems I still really enjoy them and cant wait for more instalments and an expansion of the world

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
September 10th 2015
This is a world divided by blood - red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of Mare's potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance - Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart . . .
I think this is my only debut author on this list but I read about this online and couldn't stop thinking about how good it sounds, so I will certainly be picking this up.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
October 6th 2015
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother's mysterious death, he's lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he's tracked down by an uncle he's never met - a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .
I have every book Riordan has published so of course I have to get this as well. He is such a funny writer and I love that he is so historically accurate and knowledgable about what he writing about whilst still having incredibly realistic and relatable characters. He is always a winner in my books.

But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person.

With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.

When this first came out, everyone was talking about it and I can't wait to see what all the fuss is about.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor 
March 26th 2015
By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can evenbe a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz. Common enemy, common cause. When Jael's brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love. But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz ... something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world. What power can bruise the sky From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy. At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of ? And does anything else matter.
I haven't started this trilogy yet because I have been waiting for this book to come out in paperback so I can marathon the trilogy.
