Top Ten Anticipated Releases of 2015

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Morning, Tuesday readers! There's no surprise about the topic that is going to start this week's blog content. Yep, it's more Top Ten Tuesday stuff. (I promise, there are reviews - reviews for some really good stuff in my opinion, tags and hopefully other stuff coming.) Today's topic is the lead in for next week's summer reading list (is anyone else afraid to go back and look at their TTT spring TBR?) with the 2015 releases we're most excited for the rest of the year.

Broke and Bookish topic for June 9th
Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015
(typically when we make this list in December/January each year it's pretty heavy for the first half of the year especially because we don't always have covers for books pubbed later at that point so let's talk about)

Obviously, these are not the only books I'm excited for, but below are ten I'm anticipating. Let's get started, shall we?

1.) To Get to You, by Joanne Bischof
You've heard me gush about this exciting release enough.
(Ps; just you know, go pre-order it. Mine is!)
In stores August 2015
2.) The Wedding Chapel, by Rachel Hauck
Looks beautiful. Sounds beautiful. Clearly a must-read.
In stores November 2015
3.) Falling Like Snowflakes, by Denise Hunter
This year, we get not one but two novels from Denise Hunter.
That's not too shabby.
In stores September 2015

4.) Diamonds are Forever, by Michelle Madow
Excited to see how Michelle's snazzy, drama-filled tale of three sisters and their discovery of a wealthy father plays out. It's been quite a fun trip thus far.
In stores November 2015
5.) Ice Like Fire, by Sara Rasch
Really enjoyed book one, Snow Like Ashes so naturally, I'm curious to see how book two pans out.
In stores October 2015
6.) The Bronte Plot, by Katherine Reay
This one should need no introduction or explanation. Seriously.
All you need to do is go read the synopsis, then hit that pre-order button.
In stores November 2015

7.) The Comeback Season, by Jennifer E. Smith
This one is a re-issue of an oldie Jennifer E. Smith novel.
Basically I want it because um, look at that cover!?
But, really, the real reason is the story. It sounds darling.
In stores October 2015
8.) Through Waters Deep, by Sarah Sundin
Last time I read a novel by Sarah, I was thoroughly enchanted.
I expect with her talent, there will be nothing less than that same sentiment
to enjoy in this novel, the first in her brand-new series.
In stores August 2015

9.) A Crazy Little Thing Called Love, by Beth Vogt
Destination? Check.
Cute cover? Check.
Cute story? Check.
Pretty much anything by Beth has become a must-read and how adorable does this book sound?
In stores June 2015
10.) Love in the Details, by Becky Wade
A novella by Becky is coming to help us deal with our book hangover from Becky's novel,
A Love Like Ours and keep us happy until Dru's story releases nearly a year from now (what!?).
Who else is excited about this?
In stores (on our Kindle) November 2015
That's another edition of Top Ten Tuesday.
As always, the comments are now yours. Do spill!
What books are you anticipating for the rest of the year?
Leave your Top Ten Tuesday links if you joined in the fun. I wanna' see.


  1. I am also excited about JoAnne's, Rachel's, Sarah's (made my list the first time), Denise's (it's on my list), and Becky's.

    I cannnot wait for Sarah's to come out. I can see it'll be one of those I drop everything for.

    1. Great list (authors you singled out), Dawn! 2015 has been a wonderful year thus far and I suspect the second half with be equally so. Bring on the awesome, I say.

      As for Sarah's, I'm already *dying* to get my hands on that pretty. Thanks for the comment! :)

  2. I'm looking forward to Sarah Sundin's, Denise Hunter's, and Becky Wade's books. What is her novella about, do you know? I just finished Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress from the Lunar Chronicles so I'm really looking forward to Winter, this has been a fun series to read.

    1. Sarah's, Denise's and Becky's are high on my "must-read" list, Lis. Cannot wait! As for Becky's novella, here's the blurb:

      "She left him to save his future, but they’ve never gotten over each other.

      When Josh returns to his hometown of Martinsburg, Texas, to help his best friend get married, he didn’t intend to run into church wedding coordinator—and ex-girlfriend—Holly. He can’t help but pine after the girl he never got over.

      Holly broke up with Josh years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. But she loved him then and still loves him now. As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she can’t help but feel horrible for the pain she caused him. And even though she longs to be with Josh, she doesn’t feel worthy of his big-time lifestyle when she is more comfortable in her small town world. Will Josh and Holly be able to keep things as they are when their true feelings threaten to surface at every turn?"

      Sounds good methinks. :)

      Ooo, more Lunar book love. Cannot wait to start those. They sound amazing. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Lis.

  3. Oh....#6 is on my radar! Also, "The Wedding Chapel" sounds intriguing!

    1. The Bronte Plot will probably be one of those books I drop "everything" for, Heather. It looks and sounds amazing, plus Katherine's writing is always classy. As for The Wedding Chapel, I agree! Thanks for the lovely comment. :)

  4. Love your picks! I've yet to read Snow Like Ashes but I've heard really amazing things about it! And I love that cover of The Comeback Season as well! <3

    1. Thanks, Inah! These are always fun to put together and this topic was no exception. Snow Like Ashes is a really good read. Solid and fun. As for The Comeback Season, I agree. Cannot wait to see that one on my shelf. :D

      Thanks a bunch for visiting! Glad to meet you. :)

  5. Great picks, Rissi! I'm also excited about Julie Cantrell's The Feathered Bone in December, Cathy Gohlke's Secrets She Kept in September, Kate Morton's The Lake House in October, and Not By Sight by Kate Breslin in August :)

    1. How I forgot Kate's, I will never know! Thanks for that reminder, Kara. As for the others you mention, those do sound amazing. The only one I'm not familiar with is Kate Morton's. Love the title though. :)

      Thanks a bunch - as always, for visiting, Kara. :)

  6. Thank you so much for including Through Waters Deep on your list! And what great company!

    1. My pleasure, Sarah. Cannot wait to read your new novel later this summer. :)

      Thank YOU for visiting.

  7. Rissi, what a joy to be on your list! Such good ones there! I'm still gaga over Sarah's cover and see so many more that I need to add to my TBR!

    1. As I am, Joanne! Bring on Sarah's lovely book. :) It sounds as amazing as it looks.

      Yay for TBR's. Finding new books is always fun. As for your next novel, delighted to feature it. It too sounds great. :)

  8. I have read the first 2 now from Michelle Madow so I know I'll be reading book 3. They are chick lit for sure but a little chick lit is good to read.

    1. Well said. Sometimes chick lit is the best kind of reading... it's those "easy reads" that make us laugh, smile and enjoy reading all-around. Hope book three of the "Diamond" trilogy is a good send-off for the sisters. :)
