Ten Series Starters In 2015 That Should Be On Your Radar

Top Ten Tuesday, asΒ  always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish

This week’s topic: FREEBIE! So I decided to talk about some 2015 series starters that should be on your radar!

*I tried link to Goodreads but it was down….sorry!! Will link to books later*

A Court Of Thorns & RosesYOU NEED IT. It’s Sarah J. Maas so NO BRAINER. Also, I read it and it’s AWESOME. Seriously, great new fantasy and who would have thought I’d be into fae. OH BUT I AM. This series is going to kill me probably.


TTT10 YA Sherlock….and Moriarty is a girl!!!

TTT9High fantasy! The main character is in the upper class but longs for the freedom of those who are less privileged so she can pursue her dreams!

TTT8Parallel versions of London! Magic! Smuggling of people to visit the different Londons. This book sounds ridiculously good.

TTT7It’s like part Veronica Mars and part Scandal…so basically that means WHOLLY BADASS.

TTT6WOOO new Susan Dennard! This is all I know: ” The series is set in a world where three empires rule and every member of the population is born with a magical skill set, known as a witchery.
Now, as the Twenty Year Truce in a centuries-long war is about to end, the balance of power will fall on the shoulders of two young women, who must accept their fate, and themselves, to survive

TTT5I’ve heard great things about this one and I’m itching to start it soon! A princess of a conquered kingdom trying to save her enslaved people! MAGIC! SO MUCH GOOD SOUNDING STUFF JUST GO READ THE SUMMARY…you’ll see!!

TTT4A modern girl caught up in an ancient war! I love when paranormal worlds exist right under the nose of humans and, in this case, under the streets of NYC!

TTT3It is the start of a series of crime family fairy tale retellings. This one is a retelling of Princess & the Pea and the main character’s family is one of 3 families who control the black market of organ transplants.



So tell me…what first books in a series are coming out in 2015 that should be on MY radar? Are you excited about any of these? Is this the first time you are hearing of any of these?

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. So many good series! I’m super excited for the new Maria V. Snyder books coming out, myself.

  2. We’ve already gushed over ACOTAR together so you def know how I feel. I am sooo excited for Six of Crows and Truthwitch as well! I wish we knew more about Truthwitch though cos I want it like, now.

    • Acotarrrrrrrr. God that book. And same… I mean we know it’s Sooz so that’s all we need but I just want to know more!!!

  3. Just added literally all of these that I didn’t already know about, thank you for the good finds! Either the fantasy genre has a hold on series, or you’ve become much more of a fantasy reader! I know it’s both really. πŸ™‚ I don’t have many other series starters on my radar this year, but I am looking forward to The Wrath and the Dawn because I’d like to see how that plays out as a retelling. Question, is Top Ten Tuesday open to YouTubers, or just bloggers? Sorry to ask :/ but I couldn’t tell.

    • Hahah it was so funny when I was going through all the series I am excited for bc I was like it’s largely fantasy who am I?!? I also do think fantasy is big for this year even more than usual! And yes TTT is open to booktubers. A booktuber apparently started her own TTT but called it top 5 wed or something but we would love to have booktubers join in to combine communities!!

  4. Love your choice! Also yes to ALL these! So many goodies coming up! Xoxo

  5. I haven’t read anything by V.E. Schwab but I am looking forward to A Darker Shade of Magic, it sounds fantastic (and the book cover for it is stunning!). Great list! πŸ™‚

    My TTT

    • I haven’t read any of her books either but they are all ones I keep meaning to! I own her books she published under Victoria Schwab!

  6. …and….my TBR has just expanded! I’m particularly looking forward to Sarah J Maas’ new series! πŸ™‚

    • Apologies to your TBR and wallet πŸ˜‰ pretty much any new Sarah j. Maas will always be something in excited about…no matter what it is about!! But man was ACOTAR excellent and I just am reeling at how this series will go!

  7. I haven’t seen any of these. (I blame my current job hours.) But all of them are going on my list. They sound amazing!!!

    • I hear ya!! Last year I felt like I was out of the loop with new releases! Just so much to keep up with! Glad I could help πŸ™‚

  8. I have been impatiently waiting for like all of these books!! But I hadn’t heard of Truthwitch and ohmygod it sounds amazing!!!
    This is a great idea for your TTT
    My TTT: http://bookenthral.com/2015/01/20/top-ten-tuesday/

  9. Thanks for sharing these! I will be definitely adding some of them on my TBR πŸ™‚

  10. Oh yeah, thanks so much for putting more books on my radar. Ha. Great list!

  11. I CAN’T WAIT for A Court of Thorns and Roses. It sounds so good and the cover is beautiful and it’s SARAH J. MAAS. If all of that doesn’t promise an epic new series, I don’t know what does.

  12. I’m impressed by all the fantasy you have on this list!!

    • Hehe right?!!i was making my list and I was like wowww all the series in super excited about are fantasy!! Who am I?!?

  13. I’m kind of super excited for Hold Me Like a Breath. It sounds like something I will LOVE. I will definitely be checking out these other books, because they sound so awesome. My TBR just continues to grow.

    • I feel like that every TTT…my TBR just groans a little more. And OMG when Tiff described Hold Me Like A Breath this summer at a local event I almost died from excitement!

  14. I definitely want to read A Darker Shade of Magic, as well as other books by VE Schwab. I’ve heard so many great things about them and I just haven’t gotten around to reading them. Great list! πŸ™‚
    My TTT: http://nutfreenerd.com/2015/01/20/top-ten-tuesday-favorite-things-about-winter/

  15. What a fab list! I have read a couple of these starters and have a couple on my radar. Love this Jamie!

  16. Great list! I went to add 2 of these to my GR list only to find that I’ve already added them hahaha I love when that happens!

    • Hahah I can’t tell you how often that happens to me on TTT. Sometimes I’ll comment OOH haven’t heard of this book and then go to add it on Goodreads and it’s already on mine?!?

  17. I do have more than half those series starters preordered already!! BUT I had not heard before about Lock & Mor and I need to check it out!
    Thank you for putting it in my radar!!

  18. Great list! Have to go add some to my TBR pile πŸ™‚

  19. I’ve heard of Sarah J Maas and Tiffany Schmidt’s new books but I haven’t heard of LOCK & MORI but YA Sherlock got me interested! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Great list. I don’t think I’ve heard of any of these, but I’ll definitely be checking some of them out. My TTT

  21. This is basically my TBR for the year. So many of these are my most anticipated books of the year. Amazing list!
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

  22. Ummm…ok…HOLD ME LIKE A BREATH sounds AH-MAY-ZING! Not sure why I am JUST NOW hearing what that book is about! Now I’m suuuper intrigued and want to read it ASAP! LOL! Totally on board with ACOTAR, Six of Crows, Truthwitch and The Orphan Queen! SO many amazing series are starting this year!

  23. Awesome list!! I so want Hold Me Like a Breath!!

  24. I am craving fantasy series right now so thank you for all the recs!

  25. So many of these sound so intersting, and I really need to go check them out, like, now!

  26. I’d barely heard of Lock & Mori before, just mentioned in passing, but I’m SO excited to see the reviews come in! Female Moriarty sounds like perfection πŸ˜€

  27. I’m also super excited for ACOTAR and ADSOM! I hadn’t heard about Court of Fives before but it definitely sounds like something I would enjoy. Thanks for sharing! :3

  28. I am really, really excited for The Orphan Queen! I’ve already won a pre-order, and I can’t wait for it to get here! πŸ˜€

  29. GAAAH, I’m SO FREAKING excited about most of these. CANNOT WAIT FOR ACOTAR, ADSOM, Six of Crows,
    Lock & Mori, Trutwitch, Court of Fives gaaah.

    There are some that I didn’t pay attention to before today like Hold Me Like A Breath and The Fixer.

  30. Ahh, A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES, I need it! I’m super excited for THE GIRL AT MIDNIGHT. I love the synopsis and think it’s so cool that some of the people have feathered hair! And THE FIXER is pretty good; I really liked it (though my favorite is still her Naturals books)! I haven’t seen VERONICA MARS so I don’t know if it’s anything like that, but I can definitely see the comparison to SCANDAL.

    Old Follower πŸ™‚

  32. Nice topic!! I’ve never heard of these titles. Here’s my TTT post for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/01/top-ten-tuesday-authors-id-like-to-meet.html

  33. Super excited for Dennard’s Truthwitch. My favorite description I’ve heard of it so far is “…Garth Nix meets Avatar: The Last Airbender.” Yes please.

  34. I’m really glad I stumbled upon your TTT
    I knew of Court of Thorns and Im very excited for it,
    But a new Series by Leigh Bardugo , Why did I now know this!?!?!
    The Orphan Queen is one im anticipating because Jodi Meadows will be at my local bookstore
    for a book signing for this one. I met her at another signing she did for the Incarnate series and
    she was really nice.
    TruthWitch is another one I have to wonder why I had no idea about. But it is now on my radar because of you!!!!

    My TTT

  35. OH MAN. Lock & Mori sounds fantastic! How had I not heard about this before?! Huge thank you for sharing. πŸ˜€

  36. Excellent topic! I’m going to have to check out Six of Crows.

  37. Gah, I cannot wait for A Court of Thorns and Roses and The Orphan Queen! Fantasy is my favorite thing ever and I need those books ASAP!!!!! πŸ˜€

  38. Nice topic, Jamie!! πŸ™‚ THORNS AND ROSES is one of my next reads…kinda saving it b/c I know it’s going to cause a hangover…. Ahh, I cannot WAIT to get my hands on SIX OF CROWS!!! Yes, CORUT OF FIVES and A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC and TRUTH WITCH! I want to read them, too!!! Oh, and I just finsihed THE ORPHAN QUEEN. So good!!! And HOLD ME LIKE A BREATH just came today!!!

  39. These all sound so interesting! I hope to read them soon:)

  40. I have ACOTAR and ADSOM waiting to be read I AM SO EXCITED I NEED TO GET TO THEM NOW! Ehem.

  41. OMG… I did not know about Lock & Mori!! So that’s totally on the list. The others are in the queue. I just need more reading hours…err, hours in a day.

  42. I love this topic, Jamie! Court of Fives, The Orphan Queen, and Truthwitch, and Hold Me Like a Breath are top priority for me. Thank you for sharing. <3

  43. These are some pretty great series starters, Jamie! Having read The Orphan Queen and A Court of Thorns and Roses, I can certainly second your endorsement of each. But I spy with my little eye a whole bunch of series I want to have in my hands (*coughs* Truthwitch *coughs*) from this post alone πŸ˜‰

  44. A Court of Thorns and Roses has definitely been on my radar but I haven’t heard too much about all the other ones. Looks like it’s time for some Goodreads!

  45. Thanks for the list! I’m really looking forward to “Lock & Mori.”
