What is everyone looking forward to for 2015? Fairest and Winter from Marissa Meyer and Firefight from Brandon Sanderson are at the top of my list.

>1 lalashanna34: I'm looking forward to firefight also - haven't hear of fairest and winter - is that another lunar novel?... I just finished Cinder

Because my TBR in 2015 is so long you can check it out here at my 75 challenge thread

there are so many books to read and so little time in which to read them

lovelyluck: Fairest is Levana's story and is coming out later this month. Winter is the last book of the Lunar Chronicles quartet - something for you to look forward to reading.

I'm most looking forward to reading Shadowscale, the sequel to Rachel Hartman's Seraphina, and The Winner's Crime, the sequel to Marie Rutkoski's The Winner's Curse. I'd be looking forward to Golden Son by Pierce Brown, but I already read an ARC. It was fantastic, though.

I've already read an ARC of Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and I loved it, so head's up if you enjoy fantasy books with a Hunger Games-esque twist.

>3 Cailiosa: thanks! my co-worker said I could borrow his copy of Scarlet so I will be reading that soon... and now know to look for Fairest - Red Queen looks absolutely marvelous! - just added it to the TBR pile!

Count me in on Shadowscale and Fireflight!

I'm excited about Shadowscale, but as Steelheart was one of my least-enjoyed books of 2014 I'm not going to bother with Firefight.

I couldn't get into Steelheart, quite possibly for the stupidest of reasons. One of the characters used y'all to refer to one person and it drove me nuts. If Sanderson made this guy say it once or twice, I could ignore it, but every other word out of this guy's mouth was y'all this and y'all that. Sometimes it's the little things.

I didn't notice the y'all thing.... we say that a lot around here so... I didn't have any problems with the story and one of my teens said I had to read it cause it was just totally awesome.... so I did and it was different from everything else I had been reading around that time so it was nice.... sometimes you read something and think this was awesome then you go to read the sequel or the series and your like why did I like this again? - guess we will see....

I've spent my share of time in the South and have grown rather fond of the word y'all, but this character used it incorrectly to refer to one person instead of several people. That's what bugged me. It's a rather stupid reason to get annoyed by a book, I know.

10> I've lived in Texas my entire life, and I didn't even notice that when I read Steelheart. Maybe because I listened to it on audio? *shrugs*

11Cailiosa

I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I had listened to the audio version. It's just one of those things that once you see it, you can't unsee it and then you see it everywhere and it drives you crazy. Yeah, I'm weird like that.

I'm a little torn about Fairest--I have loved the Lunar series and have faith in Marissa Meyer pulling off that story, but I must admit I was disappointed to be getting this prequel instead of the final installment.

I'm looking forward to Shadow Scale (the sequel to Seraphina), A Wicked Thing, The Sin Eater's Daughter, and Tiny Pretty Things among others. I just finally read Throne of Glass so am eager to read onward in that series in time for the release of the new one in May.

13Cailiosa
gen. 8, 2015, 3:27pm

I am torn about Fairest, too, mostly because I want to know what happens to my favorite heroes, but also because I'm not a huge fan of seeing what turns someone into a villain. I always read with hope that things will turn out for the best for a character, but when you are already aware of the final outcome for a character, you know that won't happen. Meyer has really impressed me as an author so far, so I have hope that she will do justice to this story, but it'll probably be a book that I pick up at the library before I think about purchasing it.

You guys, I just discovered that Shadowscale is a duology instead of a trilogy like every other YA series on the planet. I don't know that I'm ready to let go of these characters and this world come March. I'm feeling a little sad right now.

>13 Cailiosa: That really elegantly sums up my other worry -- I'm also concerned that reading about how the villain becomes the villain isn't going to be all that satisfying. We'll have to wait and see I guess.

What has everyone been reading recently?

Just started Shadowscale, one I've been looking forward to.

Have to say I enjoyed Avalon by Arnett, a rollicking scifi/outer space3 adventure, and am looking forward to reading the sequel, Polaris.

Dissonance was pretty good - I enjoyed it - still a little confused on how the creation of new worlds affects our own but I still think it was a pretty awesome book!

I would love for you to read my debut YA novel called Like a Dream by Shina James. It is the first book in my trilogy and I know you wont be disappointed.
