I know. Everyone posted their reading lists two weeks ago, except me. We’ve already established that I am three months behind, so a couple of weeks late isn’t too bad for me.
In the course of moving I “lost” my Kindle for several months, but now, I’ve found it. So I bring you a list of books I am looking forward to reading on it in 2015. Yay!
I love, love, LOVE this series. The new book came out just as I was moving, and so I hadn’t even gotten to look at it before the kindle went missing. AHHHHH! I’d call this a sci-fi/fantasy – though it has aliens in it, it FEELS more fantasy story to *me*. But then I’m sure other there are other sci-fi books that are that way. Why is it so good? For one thing Reid is hawt. Fallon (the protagonist) is a “strong” girl but she’s still a girl – not manlier than the men, and the side characters are all three dimensional and interesting. Add to that the awesome mythos and world building (including plenty of alien races) and it adds up to be awesome!
This is the first book in another series, by one of my fav authors. I’ve read her other books and loved them, so I’m looking forward to this one. As Amazon says “Formerly published under the title ‘The Claiming Words,’ Spellbound is a completely re-written, re-vamped novel featuring added scenes, additional chapters, and a new ending.” – I actually have The Claiming Words on my Kindle as well, but did not start it because a birdy told me to wait 😉 (A Tricia shaped birdie, LOL!) and I’m glad I did.
I’ve had this one for a few months. It’s also the opening to a fantasy series. I did peek at the beginning and it starts off well with good character and plot introduction, so I am sure the rest will be as good. mark is also the author of The Protector, which I enjoyed last year.
I’ve had this one for a couple of years and have put it off, not because it’s not good, but because I owed people reviews etc etc. Well this year I am reading it! J. Lee Coulter is another of my favorite authors – I adore her Highlander series where she mixes history with fairies, magic, and mythology – so I am really looking forward to this!
I’ve had this one for a couple of years too, and have put it off for the same reason. This is a comedy and I know from her other work that LC is hilarious, so this one looks to be a lot of fun to read.
The second in the Night Touched Series. After having read book 1 (Celine) last year, I am looking forward to the continuation. Meagan has a creative and unique vampire mythos, and I am looking forward to its expansion. There are also some shorter prequels that I need to pick up.
Okay, so this is two books, but they’re part of the same series so it counts, right? I read Charmeine, the first in the series last year, but for the same reason as the others I didn’t get to these two. I will now or else! Emily also had in intriguing vampire mythology that throws angels into the mix.
I’ve had this one for quite awhile but since this woman may be the world’s most prolific writer (Seriously. I have 36 items from her on my kindle and there are many I don’t own) I have been busy reading her newer stuff and never had time to back track. She has two main universes that I have delved into: Silvery Earth (fantasy) and Star Minds (soft Sci-fi). Don’t ask me to pick between the two. I’ve read enough of her work that I know this one will be good.
I’ve had this one for a bit and have wanted to read it. I enjoyed Three Hoodies number one – a mix of British humor and sci-fi told through the eyes of teenage boys – it’s hilarious! And also gross in places, just as it should be. He is also releasing The Book of Pain this year and I want to read it, too, though it is more horror, his wit still shines through in preview passages I’ve seen.
I’ve also had this one for about a year, waiting for me to get to it. I did start it once – it was well written and held my attention – but had to stop to do some beta reading for someone else, then we started moving and… well, you can see how that went. So I am anxious to get back to it.
I haven’t read anything by Simon yet, but it seems we have similar taste in books, so that’s a good sign. It’s the first in a sci-fi/space opera series.
Another one I have had for awhile. It’s a romance book, and who doesn’t like romance? (hint, I do!)
Another that has been on my TBR list for too long. I’ve read snippets and such on Daven’s blog, so I know it’s going to be good. And I also know it has a unique spin on vampires. No mushy Twilight stuff here.
I admit, I’ve mostly read his joke books (he has a bunch), but I want to give his novel a try. I have had it for a couple of years and this is the year I will read it.
“Motorcycles, mayhem, and sex,” or so the description says. Who doesn’t want to read that?
Another fantasy series starter. I’ve meant to read this for awhile now.
Okay, it’s a short story. But it looks fun, and I know Angela is hilarious, so….
Another one I’ve meant to read.
Another one I’ve had for awhile. he has like a billion reviews, so it must be good (joking there, but I am sure it is good, really)
The description amused me. The author bio sold me. If it’s half as witty as either it’s going to be a good read.
This was one of the first books I got on my Kindle and I have never finished it, though I have read about half of it. The stories are strange, though there are no cannibal teddy bears. However they’re good and I am determined to read them all.
What books are you planning the read this year?
