Anticipated Releases For The Rest Of 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. This week we are looking at my top ten anticipated releases for the rest of 2015.

Anticipated Releases For The Rest Of 2015 | bluchickenninja.com

1. To Hold The Bridge by Garth Nix. Okay so technically this is out now however it was not out at the time of writing this post. This is Garth Nix’s latest collection of short stories, it features 18 stories that showcase Nix’s versatility, as he adds a fantastical twist on an array of genres including science fiction, paranormal, realistic fiction, mystery, and adventure. Release date: 4th June 2015

2. Armada by Ernest Cline. I’m totally not obsessed or anything but I’ve had this on preorder since February. Just like Ready Player One this book is about a kid playing a computer game which turns out to be more than what it appears. Release date: 16th July 2015

3. Atonement by Kirsten Beyer. This is the latest book in the Star Trek Voyager reboot series and sees Admiral Janeway along with Captain Chakotay and the crew of the USS Voyager back in the Delta Quadrant. Atonement continues from where Acts of Contrition left off with Admiral Janeway facing a tribunal determined to execute her for supposed crimes committed during Voyager’s maiden trek. Release date: 27th August 2015

4. The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. This book is about all those normal people just trying to get on with their lives. It asks what if you weren’t the Chosen One. The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death. Release date: 27th August 2015

5. The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin. This is the first part of NK Jemisin’s newest fantasy series (she also wrote The Killing Moon which you have to go read if you haven’t already). Release date: 4th August 2015

6. Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone: Illustrated Edition by JK Rowling. I try to not buy multiple copies of the same book but I am breaking my own rules for this one. This is a hardback edition of The Philosopher’s Stone and includes illustrations of the wizarding world and our much beloved characters by Jim Kay. Release date: 6th October 2015

7. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. This is the full Simon Snow fanfiction written by Cath in Fangirl. This fanfiction being published thing is getting very meta now. Release date: 8th October 2015

8. The Black Disk by David Ramirez. From what I can tell this is a prequel to The Forever Watch. Its about life on Earth and the internet… I think. Release date: 24th March 2016

9. Way Down Dark by James Smythe. This is another one of those our ancestors left on a spaceship because bad things happened and now more bad things are happening type of books. Also the spaceship is called Australia. Release date: 2nd July 2015

10. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. See above. Release date: 13th August 2015

  1. I can’t wait for The Rest Of Us Just Live Here. Patrick Ness ❤
    Also, the Jemisin one looks very much promising (if it is anything like The Killing Moon of Hundred Thousand Kingdoms it will be golden) and the illustrated HP is a no-brainer must-have.

  2. I’ve never read any Star Trek books but maybe I should read this Voyager reboot. It sounds awesome and I did love Voyager quite a lot. Great list!

    My TTT!

    • The Star Trek books are great if you’ve enjoyed the series and want. Though I wouldn’t say they are great works of fiction. But if you like Voyager its definitely something I would recommend. The books start off right where Endgame finished.

  3. I totally forgot about the illustrated Harry Potter edition. How could I? Anyway, great list!

  4. That’s a pretty good looking list! The most notable that I’m looking forward to that isn’t on there is the first book in Jim Butcher’s new steampunk series, The Aeronaut’s Windlass.
