To Be Read Pile for 2015

I don't know but somehow it got to be the 22nd of December. Am I ready for Christmas? No. But there's a whole 3 days left.

I'm in so much trouble.

Enough trouble that I stole a page from JB's book and started making lists. It works. I got every item on that stupid grocery list on Saturday. Even though I had to backtrack and forward track and it took me FOREVER.

But now I'm good to go and beginning to feel organized.

And have time to think about things like what books I want to read next year (in no particular order) while I listen to my favorite Christmas caroles.

Kylie Scott's Deep. The final instalment in her Stage Dive Series. Didn't think I'd like this series as much as I do. I got hooked on Scott by reading her Flesh series because, hello, zombies. And other sexy stuff. But not with zombies. I promise. Because that would be all kinds of wrong. Coming in March 2015!

One by one, the members of Stage Dive are falling in love. David, Mal, and Jimmy have all taken the plunge, and now it’s Ben’s turn—only he refuses to fall into that trap. The sexy bassist enjoys his no-strings-attached lifestyle. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he’s always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay there.

Kit Rocha's Beyond Innocence from her Beyond Series tentatively set for Spring 2015. I don't know if I can wait. When I was talking about book boyfriends, I forgot about this series. And I CANNOT wait for Jared's story. Warning: Explicit Content. Very explicit.

The hero of this book is Ace's friend and notorious professional ladies' man Jared. The heroine is Mac Fleming's icy daughter, Lili. Who will melt first? Only time will tell.

Ashley Little's Anatomy of a Girl Gang. Might even be my book club pick for 2015! About a vicious girl gang that operates in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. The same setting of my latest release, Off The Grid.

A sharp and gritty novel told in six voices, Anatomy of a Girl Gang is the powerful story of a gang of teenage women in Vancouver called the Black Roses, a.k.a. “the city’s worst nightmare.” They are: Mac, the self-appointed leader and mastermind; Mercy, the Punjabi princess with a skill for theft; Kayos, a high-school dropout who gave birth to a daughter at age thirteen; Sly Girl, who fled her First Nations reserve for a better life, only to find depravity and addiction; and Z, a sixteen-year-old anti-establishment graffiti artist.

Cast out by mainstream society, the five girls lash out: they terrorize Vancouver with a raw, restless urgency, setting fire to the world around them to try to erase their painful pasts. As the Black Roses, they rob ATMs, cook crack on stoves, and savagely beat anyone who dares to harm them. Brutal and broken, they claw at the knot of darkness and violence that tightens around their lives.

Told in stark, vivid, and fearless prose, Anatomy of a Girl Gang is a narrative punch to the throat, a screaming, spray-painted portrait of urban gang culture. Ashley Little’s sophomore book is a brutal, unflinching story of lost girls struggling for power, voice, and hope. Winner of the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. Finalist for the City of Vancouver Book Award. Longlisted for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.

There! A random sampling of some of the books I'm looking forward to reading in 2015.  What books are you looking forward to delving into?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Ack! I have no idea what books are even coming out next year, let alone have a list of them I want to read. I think Allison Brennan will probably have a Lucy Kinkaid book out in 2015 (because she usually puts one out a year) and I have to read those. Usually, though, I don't plan for it. I just read what comes out when it catches my eye and when I have the funds to buy it.

So many ways to pick books. I guess it doesn't really matter how you picked it, as long as you have one to read!

Yay for Kit Rocha! Yes, those are dark and dirty but I'm totally hooked on them! I'm looking forward to the next In Death/Eve Dallas from JD Robb (Feb.), Darynda Jone's next Charley Davidson book in...May? Can't remember the title off the top of my head. And then there's Anne Bishop's next novel in The Others series. I'm dying to reread the first two but trying to make myself wait until the next one is closer to release. VISION IN SILVER is set to release just after my b-day in March. I know I have others but those three are the ones on the top of my list. :)

LOL, lists work!!

I like the idea of a TBR list, it might make my pile seem less daunting. :-)

Karyn Good said...

JB, I've made more lists since. I even started one for my husband - we'll see how that goes over!

Enjoy making your list - or at least ordering the books from read first and so on...

Karyn Good said...

Yay, for another Kit Rocha fan, Silver! I so curious as to who your favorite couple (or threesome) is? And I know you've mentioned that you like Darynda Jones. I'm going to have to read one of her books these days. The rest sound like an wonderful reading list for 2015!
