Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Rest of 2015

Typically when we book bloggers make this list in December/January each year it's pretty heavy for the first half of the year - especially because we don't always have covers for books pubbed later at that point.  So today we're focusing on what we are excited about for the rest of the year.   Let's jump in!

10. Jeweled Fire (Elemental Blessings #3) by Sharon Shinn
Release Date: 11/3/15
I feel like I have been waiting decades for this book.  I love this series, and am so excited to jump back in.

9. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: 9/29/15 
The Grisha series was so much fun to read.  I can't wait to be introduced to the author's next work!

8. Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: 11/10/15
Gah!  I've been holding out on this series because I decided to depart from my usual M.O. and wait until they were all released and read the whole series all at once.  Methinks it's finally time to start.  I've heard so many good things!

7. The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) by Mary E. Pearson
Release Date: 7/7/15 
The Kiss of Deception was a breakout novel of 2014 for me.  I've been dying to read this sequel ever since that fateful night when I read for about eight hours straight to finish TKOD.  BRING IT ON.

6. The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Release Date: 8/27/15
I'm currently reading another Ness novel (A Monster Calls) and loving it.  This premise is something that I've been wanting to read about for some time now, and I think Ness is just the author to tackle the idea.

5. Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith
Release Date: Autumn 2015 
It's J.K. Rowling.  I'll read anything she writes.  (No cover image, release date, or Amazon link available yet.)

4. Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson
Release Date: 9/22/15 
Carson's Girl of Fire and Thorns was such a phenomenal series.  I am so happy she's publishing another series, even if it has nothing to do with GoFaT.

3. Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: 9/1/15 
Because I can never get enough Maas.  Also, the ending of Heir of Fire about killed me.

2. Of Rust and Dreams (Of Metal and Wishes #2) by Sarah Fine
Release Date: 8/4/15
Considering I spent a large portion of my childhood pretending I was Christine Daae, this Phantom of the Opera retelling is extremely high on my list.  And, if I'm not mistaken, it's a duology, not a trilogy.  So this is final installment!

1. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Release Date: 10/6/15 
GAH.  Fangirl is one of my favorite books of all time.  I've been coveting this book from the moment I heard it was coming.  GIMME GIMME GIMME.

What are you looking forward to reading in the next six months?
