2015 Releases I Plan on Reading and Reviewing

Since the 2014 edition turned out nicely, with an eventual 165 books listed by late December that each received some form of review, I thought I would do something similar (albeit on a likely smaller scale, since I likely won't have as much money for purchasing books this year, although I do plan on utilizing my Netgalley and Edelweiss accounts much more in requesting e-ARCs) for 2015.  This list will start small and I'll add to it as more upcoming releases are announced.

I mostly enjoyed The Infinite Tides, so I guess I'll pick up a copy of The Animals at some point.

I will eventually pick up Mieville's book, though his are almost always misses. Perhaps one day the heavens will part and a magnificent light will deliver unto me understanding as to why people think his books are hot shit, but I'll just continue being disappointed until then.
