It's that time again! New year, new goals, new books. Here is a rundown of the YA books that the We Heart YA girl's are looking forward to reading in brand-spanking-new 2015.

Sarah:

THRONE OF GLASS #4 by Sarah J. Maas
I read the first three of these books in a week when HEIR OF FIRE was released thinking that I'd binge on a trilogy and lo and behold it ends on a cliffhanger!! So I research online and, of course, there's a fourth book. What?! Grrr! (but, really, I am SO excited to find out what happens to all of these weirdly named characters that I've grown fond of. I have read every scrap of the prequel stories while I wait...and wait...)

MORE HAPPY THAN NOT by Adam Silvera
I've followed Adam on twitter for ages, it seems, and I can't wait for his debut. It could possibly be everything.

THE WITCH HUNTER by Virginia Boecker
Been keeping an eye on this debut as well. I love witches.

SIMON VS. THE HOMOSAPIEN AGENDA by Becky Albertalli
Heard so much good buzz from respected sources. Gimme.

MADE YOU UP by Francesca Zappia
This cover needs a frame.

Kristan:

MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES by Jasmine Warga
Contemporary YA with heart and humor? Diversity? Written by a dear friend? Check check check!

Book 4 in the Raven Cycle series
Two words: Maggie. Stiefvater. Enough said.
MOSQUITOLAND by David Arnold
That cover. Also, I've traveled by Greyhound, and I know there is a compelling story in that alone. Add in the snippets of Arnold's lovely prose that I've read, and a mother-daughter connection, and I'm sold.

CONVICTION by Kelly Loy Gilbert
Written by a fellow halfie, this book sounds like a really compelling story about faith and family. I like the sports connection too.

Sarah (again):

One more I forgot that is really important: THE WALLS AROUND US by Nova Ren Suma.

Ingrid:

Perusing the list of 2015 debut releases has been really fun. Some books that look good to me include...

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN LOST AND FOUND by Kathryn Holmes

MADE YOU UP by Francesca Zappia

PLEASE DON'T TELL by Laura Tims

THE SACRED LIES OF MINNOW BLY by Stephanie Oakes

THE WRONG SIDE OF RIGHT by Jenn Marie Thorne


Sarah (again again):


Just one more. I need SHADOW SCALE by Rachel Hartman. Right. The heck. Now.

Stephanie:

I haven't even finished the first book, but I'm already so excited about the sequel!

I love stories about libraries, especially ones that involve mystery and magic. And several goodreads reviewers have compared it to Doctor Who. Yay!

And I'm kind of behind on books I meant to read in 2014. :/ I'm looking forward to catching up with books like RUIN AND RISING by Leigh Bardugo and THE DREAM THEIVES by Maggie Stiefvater.

What book are you looking forward to this year?

Looking forward to SO many of these books! THE DISTANCE BETWEEN LOST AND FOUND looks fabulous, as does MADE YOU UP :) and I’m with Stephanie– I still have a ton of 2014 books to read! Have a great 2015 and happy reading! :D

So many amazing book. Who isn't waiting for Throne of Glass #4, I'm dying here :) I wish book 5 and 6 would also come out so I could binge :)
Made You Up is gorgeous!! I'm in love.
Great list ladies, I hope you get to read and enjoy them all.
