Books I am Looking Forward to in 2015

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!

Discovery at Nerwolix  By C.G. Coppola

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!

Spellbound by Tricia Drammeh

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.

The Calling by Mark Mathews

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.

Fractured Love…Broken Promises by J. Lee Coulter

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!

Diary of a Reluctant Vampire – LC Cooper

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.

Jeremy by Maegan Provan

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.

Accendo & Mactus by Emily Guido

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.

Books of the Immortals – Fire by Barbara Tarn

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.

Three Hoodies Save the World 2 by Roger Lawrence

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.

The Dogs Don’t Bark in Brooklyn Any More by Eric Robert Nolan

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.

Wanderers Escape by Simon Goodson

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.

The Heart’s Discovery by Amy McGuire

Another one I have had for awhile. It’s a romance book, and who doesn’t like romance? (hint, I do!)

Vampire Syndrome by Daven Anderson

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.

Tantric Zoo by Rob Loughran

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.

Mac Tire by Alan Dowell

“Motorcycles, mayhem, and sex,” or so the description says. Who doesn’t want to read that?

Markan Throne by Nicolas Rose

Another fantasy series starter. I’ve meant to read this for awhile now.

Zombie Hospital by Angela Verdenius

Okay, it’s a short story. But it looks fun, and I know Angela is hilarious, so….

An Irish Tale by Terrance O’Grady

Another one I’ve meant to read.

Twisted Vengeance by Jeff Bennington

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)

There Will Be Phlogiston by Alexis Hall

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.

Teddy Bear Cannibal Massacre Anthology

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?

  2. I’m reading through everything that’s on my Kindle right now, including the Magdeburg trilogy by Kat Kruger and Exit to Eden by Anne Rice/Anne Rampling, and then I’ll read the new JK Rowling/Robert Gailbrath novel, Prince Lestat by Anne Rice, and maybe some recent Stephen King. I just hope I find time!

  3. Here are the books that are on my reading list this year: (Note: They’re all on my bookshelf already).
    “The 12th of Never,” by: James Patterson. I got this book on birthday, I have yet to read it.
    “Divergent,” by: Veronica Roth. I got this on Christmas. I only read the first chapter.
    ‘The Maze Runner,’ from “The Maze Runner” series, by: James Dashner. I also got this one on my birthday. I’m nine chapters in. I think I’ll finish that one first, before jumping back to “Divergent.”
    “Sisters Red,” by: Jackson Pearce. I either got the book on my birthday or Christmas, a few years back. I have yet to read.
    “The Strain,” by: Chuck Hogan and Guillermo DelToro. Just like with “Sisters Red,” I also received “The Strain” either on my birthday or for Christmas a few years back. I have yet to read it.
    Finally: “Troubadour,” by: Mary Hoffman. I got this book on Christmas. I have yet to read it.
    Hopefully I will be able to read them this year.

  5. You’ve got a great list of books here. Thank you so much for including mine. I’ve got a bunch of books on my reading list and it seems to grow every day. What can I say? I’m a book junkie.
