1. The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch by Daniel Kraus

This YA book follows an immortal teenager who recounts his life as he sits under the World Trade Center on 9/11. I’ll probably listen to this on audiobook since it is done by Kirby Heyborne one of my favorite narrators for YA.

2. The Rose Society by Marie Lu

This is the second book in Marie Lu’s YA historical fantasy series, The Young Elites. It follows a group of outcasts trying to take down their monarchy. The first book ended in a huge cliffhanger so I can’t wait to see what happens next.

3. Winter by Marissa Meyer

This is the final book in the popular Lunar Chronicles. This series is like if Star Wars meets Grimm’s fairytale and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

4. The Brightest Day by Kianna Alexander , Alyssa Cole ,Lena Hart , Piper Huguley

My 2015 was all about learning about the world of romance and one of the things romance does best is anthologies. Each story in this anthology is a historical romance that takes place around Juneteenth.

5. The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins

This adult mystery/thriller  seemed to be everywhere this year. I’m usually really behind on reading popular books so I want to read this one this year.

6. Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry

I have really been trying to find a book that scratched my Sons of Anarchy itch and I think this YA may just be it.




















7. An Ember in The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

This was a very popular YA fantasy debut last year about a girl who goes undercover as a slave to the ruling class. I’m actually listening to this on audio now and it is great.

8. Between The World and Me by Ta-Nehisi

This book will probably go down as one of the most important pieces of non-fiction published last year and at only 152 pages I need to make time for it.

9. I Crawl Through It by A.S. King

King writes really great surreal, feminist and experimental YA. I started this book, but it after putting it down I forgot to pick it up. I can’t even begin to explain what this book is about it’s so bizarre.

10. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

I started reading this book while at the library one day but never finished it. It’s about a girl from the Caribbean who goes to America get away from something terrible that happened to her. And she meets a boy.  It seems to have some magical realism vibes which is my reading catnip.

What books released in 2015 are you looking forward to finally reading this year?

Kat is a lifelong reader who probably has way to many holds at the library right now. She reviews and discusses YA fiction on Books and Sensibility and dives into romance on Romance and Sensibility
  • I’ve heard many good things about The Girl on the Train. That, and An Ember in the Ashes were on my list. Winter was really good! Hopefully, you’ll get to them this year 🙂
