The Flywheel by Erin Gough (D)
Aussie YA and a non-issue LGBT? Sold x infinity.
Pieces of Sky by Trinity Doyle
Over the years, I’ve chatted with Trinity on Twitter and become Goodreads friends. I always love hearing about the books she’s reading or loved, so you bet I can’t wait that I finally get to read her book. Contemporary OzYA = my heart.
You’re the Kind of Girl I Write Songs About by Daniel Herborn
This sounds like a lovely contemporary. Plus, there’s a music aspect! Oh, and the cover is so dreamy. *eyes the pretty*
Risk by Fleur Ferris
This has such a creepy, hooking, can’t-stop-reading vibe to it and it sounds amazing! This isn’t up on Goodreads yet, but I’ll be keeping my eye out for it. In the meantime, get excited and read all about it here. (If you’d like to add it when it goes up on GR, leave me your Twitter handle @ and I’ll try to let you guys know about it.)
(While you're here, go check out this fab list on 2015 OzYA releases. So many to anticipate!)
I love the sound of this; such a unique, interesting premise.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (D)
Everyone needs more adorable, sweet love stories in their life, especially gay, Oreo ones.
Mosquitoland by David Arnold
I feel so in the dark about this one! I find the blurb to be a complete mystery, the reviews are glowing and I just need to know what happens ASAP, OK? OK.
Written In the Stars by Aisha Saeed (D)
I’ve never read a book about an arranged marriage before, so I’m glad that’s going to change in 2015. I love reading about things not yet brushed upon in YA. More of this, please!
Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee (D)
I’m not the biggest historical fan. In fact, it kind of scares me. But I heard this is fast/well-paced, plus diversity! cowboys! swoon!
Denton Little’s Deathgate by Lance Rubin
A humorous book on death? Sounds interesting. I always love it when books make me laugh out loud and I’m hoping this book does just that!
And one I've already read and have made it my mission of 2015 to get you all to read it:
The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell (D)
This book, you guys. I’ve had the pleasure and misfortune (the latter because it broke my heart. But in the words of JG, "It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.” Yes, indeed.) of reading this already and all I can say is: read it (and weep). It’s incredible, moving, heartbreaking and a must-read. RTC later this month.
The upcoming 2015 debuts look fabulous and I'm sad I couldn't mention them all! Hopefully I'll do another post and highlight more later on in the year, but if not, I'll be sure to Tweet about them!
