The second half of 2015 brings a bunch of new releases I look forward to (not that I haven’t enough releases from the first half to still read through):

Dawn Kurtagich – The Dead House
expected publication date: August 6th 2015
The concept of having the narrative be made up of different media – diary entries, interview transcripts, film footage transcripts and medical notes according to the blurb – really appeals to me. From the blurb this book has a lot of potential directions and I am intrigued to figure out whether it’s more on the supernatural or psychological side.

Derek Landy – Demon Road (Demon Road, #1)
expected publication date: August 28th 2015
Let’s not talk about the cover art because that basically screams trash for me and is pretty ugly. The blurb reminds me a lot of early Supernatural mixed with the Miriram Black series by Chuck Wendig – probably a fast read for in between, maybe a new guilty pleasure series.

Catherynne M. Valente – Speak Easy
expected publication date: August 31st 2015
Apparently Radiance and Matryoshka both got pushed back to a release in 2016 but we’ll get this novella by Valente.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses is a very beautiful tale for Valente to tackle and I’m excited for her take on it! Also the cover art is my favorite of all the books still to come this year with the art nouveau/art deco influence.

Erin Bow – The Scorpion Rules
expected publication date: September 22nd 2015
This sounds like a refreshing take on dystopian ya novel shenanigans. Sacrificing one life for the life of many and the morale ideas surrounding such a choice and what it actually means for that one person to know about this possible fate for themselves – if Bow manages to pull this off, it will be great! Not really trusting The Scorpion Rules to be a standalone yet but preordered a copy and can’t wait to read it in October.

Kate Rorick, Rachel Kiley – The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet: A Novel
expected publication date: September 29th 2015
I won’t allow my expectations to be too high for this novel. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is my favorite web series and was a huge part of my life during its original release and naturally the characters mean a lot to me: This is the first adaption which made me love Lydia and actually care for her and her character development was amazing. Now the first companion novel from Lizzie’s perspective was only okayish and there’s this sour taste of them just milking the cow… still, at least the audio book should rock!

Leigh Bardugo – Six of Crows (The Dregs #1)
expected publication date: September 29th 2015
A new Bardugo book set in the world of Grisha – what else could a girl want? I can’t remember reading anything with a heist so this should be even more interesting!

Lindsay Francis Brambles – Becoming Darkness
expected publication date: October 1st 2015
Alternate universe plus genre mash up and standalone? Count me in!

Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor – Welcome to Night Vale
expected publication date: October 20th 2015
That podcast is everything and getting a book set in that universe with the audio book narrated by Cecil? Pure perfection!

David Mitchell – Slade House
expected publication date: October 27th 2015
Got this as a recommendation because I read HoL and the blurb sounds pretty cool. I’m just a bit sad that the shipping takes so much time and I won’t get the full experience of reading its conclusion right on October 31st.

Suzanne Young – Hotel Ruby
expected publication date: November 3rd 2015
The second book in this list with a hotel theme, go figure. Hotel Ruby sounds like a bit of horror and weirdness clash in it: The tag line of Stay Tonight. Stay Forever. just gives off that vibe. Really looking forward to check in at the Ruby!
