2015 seems so far off but in reality, it’s two weeks away. Being the book lover that I am, I wanted to see what’s coming out in 2015 and now I am super excited about the coming year. These are just a few of the books that I am excited about.
This is coming out in January:
Binary Star follows a young woman battling an eating disorder who takes a road trip with her alcoholic, long-distance boyfriend. Through their desperation, the very lost pair happen upon vegananarchism — what they think will give them some meaning. (Bustle.com)
It’s getting a lot of buzz. Read an excerpt here.
This comes out in February:
I’ll Meet You There is the type of YA book I like. I don’t read YA all that often, but when I do, they tend to be stories like this one.
If seventeen-year-old Skyler Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage-months of summer. Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings them together is working at the Paradise—a quirky motel off California’s dusty Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and soon, something deeper. (heather.demetrios.com)
This comes out in March:
Not much info for The Buried Giant except that it’s about lost memories, love, revenge and war. Can’t say I am a fan of the cover but Ishiguro? I am so there. I tried to get an ARC and was shot down again. Sadness.
This comes out in June:
It’s based on a series of tragedies in the town I lived in when I was growing up, and the terrible time it was for the adults and the children, although the adults never talked to the children about it, no one I know had an adult talk to them about it, so we invented scenarios of what this all meant … And at the same time, life goes on, you go to school, you meet a boy, you fall in love, all the time that this is happening. (Blume for Bustle.com)
Doesn’t it sound good?
Book #2 of King’s Mr. Mercedes series is rumored to come out in June 2015. It’s called Finders Keepers but the cover has yet to be revealed.
What books are you excited about? I’m sure I’m missing some big ones since I’ve been out of the loop lately with what’s coming out.

OMG I want them all.
Don’t they look amazing?? If I could just finish The Rosie Effect, I’d be happy. Still struggling at 35% in.
I’m very, very excited about Binary Star. And I never really read Judy Blume (blasphemy, I know!) but I”m totally interested in the new book.
As a kid, Judy Blume was the end all, be all. I haven’t tried her adult fiction yet.
I’m impressed – I know 2015 isn’t far away but I haven’t thought beyond next week.
January is a little depressing to me. I know a lot of people think about a clean slate and starting off fresh but for me, it’s a little dull after the Christmas bustle. That said, I try to make it a little exciting by thinking of upcoming books. I know what you mean though. Let’s just get through this year first, right?
Stewart O’Nan has a new book coming out, too!
Oh my freakin’…. Stewart O’Nan’s new book sounds amazing!! I just looked it up.
I haven’t been paying attention to new books in 2015. I am so far behind, but that’s ok. I just want to relax on my vacation.
I hope we both get to relax. I had the unfortunate luck of getting a project approved last minute which means I am scrambling today to put a dent in it before I leave for break. I’ve been waiting for weeks for an approval but now?
I am impressed too…and these are different!
I am most excited about Ishiguro’s new novel too. It seems like it’s been a long time since his last full-length novel. I didn’t care for Nocturnes, but this looks like a good return to what he does best.
Salman Rushdie also has his new book, which is slated for September. I’m on the edge of my seat for that.
2015 looks packed full of good reading.
I don’t pay attention to new releases often but I am looking forward to the Ishiguro. I have NEVER read anything by Judy Blume. I KNOW!
These all look good. I have not looked yet into 2015 books, but will soon. If Ishiguro has a new one, I will run not walk to get it! I’m still trying to recover from Never Let Me Go. what a heart-cruncher.
I’ll Meet You There looks good! I haven’t read Ishiguro yet – probably should. I have been in the middle of the audio of Mr Mercedes way too long – really have to get back to it. And I’ve saved some lists of 2015 books but I can’t remember the ones that got me excited when I was reading the lists (talk about a short memory).
I grew up with Judy Blume….I am soooo excited about her new book. Have you ever read Summer Sisters? I have read her books so many times to my students and own children, and unlike some other books that just don’t live up to you memories of them, Blume’s books still do.
I don’t think I have read any of her adult books. I can’t wait to read this one though. Summer Sisters? Is it good? I may have to read all of them if this new one strikes me.
Ti, I added your list to my collection of end of the year book lists at my blog Semicolon. Thanks for the recommendations.
