2014 is winding down, which means it is time to start looking forward to 2015. The Broke and the Bookish are asking about our most anticipated books of the new year.
1. Please Remain Calm by Courtney Summers. YAY! A sequel to This is Not a Test.
2. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. I want this one so bad!
3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. A new series set in the Grisha world!
4. The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige. I am looking for more twisted Oz tales.
5. Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales. I really enjoy her contemporary fiction.
6. Firefight by Brandon Sanderson. This is another book that I NEED. Now, if possible. Please?
7. Winter by Marissa Meyer. Need I say more? I love this series.
8. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios. Man, I LOVE this cover.
9. Armada by Ernest Cline. I’m down with some alien invasions.
10. I Crawl Through It by A.S. King. Have I mentioned recently how much I love this author and will ready anything she writes? No? Well. I do and will.
Too soon for a cover!
I could on, but I will restrain myself for now.

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
February 3, 2015
“If seventeen-year-old Skyler Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage-months of summer. Skylar can taste the freedom—that is, until her mother loses her job and everything starts coming apart. Torn between her dreams and the people she loves, Skylar realizes everything she’s ever worked for is on the line.
Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings them together is working at the Paradise—a quirky motel off California’s dusty Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and soon, something deeper.
Gritty, romantic, and ultimately hopeful, I’ll MEET YOU THERE explores the complicated lives of an unforgettable cast of characters. This is the story of teens outside the picket fence. It doesn’t soften the edges of adolescence or the individual consequences of war; it’s life on the fringes—maddening, weirdly endearing…and completely screwed up.”
The awesome cover caught my eye, but the description totally sold me.
