New Books I Can't Wait to Drop in 2015

There are some truly epic books about to drop over the next six months of 2015 including two from some of my favourite crime authors, a newly discovered amazing paranormal YA author and a sequal to one of the most loved modern classics ever.

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray (The Diviners #2). I loved The Diviners so so much (read my review here) and cannot wait to continue on the story in this paranoral YA series. Evie O'Neill is a diviner, whose powers help her to see into people's lives simply by holding an object that belongs to them. Along with her Uncle Will, the curator of a museum dedicated to all things occult, and Evie's ecclectic group of friends, some of who have divining powers of their own, Evie's powers will once again be called upon. For those of you who enjoy books with magical or supernatural elements I would thoroughly recommend picking up this series. I'm not usually one to read paranormal or Young Adult books but The Diviners is an extremely enjoyable read and it's setting of New York City during the 1920s also adds a historical element into the mix.

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. The followup novel to To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is probably this years most anticipated book and it's just been released. What makes me really excited about this release is that it was written around the same time as Mockingbird which makes me think it will have a strong and authentic connection to the original story. I'm so excited to continue discovering the story of Atticus and Scout Finch but expectations are extremely high for this one and I hope it does not disappoint.

Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith. JK Rowling's third book under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith is going to be published in October 2015. A mysterious package containing a severed leg is sent to private investigator Cormoran Strike's assistant Robin. Cormoran can think of at least four people who may want to bring him down and with a police force focusing on someone who Cormoran definitely thinks is not the suspect he must take matters into his own hands to solve the gruesome case.

The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz (Millenium Trilogy #4). A fourth book in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is being released this year - I've heard August but don't quote me on that date - albeit with a different author at the helm. Apparently Stieg Larsson planned ten books in the series which is rather exciting to think one of my favourite trilogies could have so much more to deliver. As always it is a bit nerve wrecking to think whether a new author can capture the original novels tone and Lisbeth's character perfectly but I will be picking this book up as soon as it drops.

Are you looking forward to reading any of these books? Let me know which novels you are anticipating being released for the rest of 2015.
