12 Must Read 2015 Books

I have been very blessed to receive a few advanced copies of books from time to time. It’s never too early to start thinking about and celebrating the books that are about to enter the universe. I’ve created a quick list of books that I think just may take 2015 by storm.

Young Adult


Bone Gap by Laura Ruby (3/3/2015)

This book is terrifying and brilliant.

  1. These all look wonderful! I have an arc of The Terrible Two that I hope to read this week, and I can’t wait to see By Mouse & Frog. Thanks for the heads up about Pam Munoz Ryan’s new book!


  2. Wow, Colby, nice list! Definitely a lot to look forward to, and being a total fan of Deborah Freedman (I agree with your assessment!), I definitely can’t wait for that, and Mac Barnett—the man cracks me up lol


  3. Hi, I run Bookopolis, a social network and book discovery tool for 7-12 year old readers. I’d love to share your reviews with young readers around the world. Would you consider joining Bookopolis and posting your review or permit me to post them with credit to you? As a recent Scholastic report showed, 73% of kids say they’d read more if they found more books they liked. We’re trying to do just that and would love your reviews to be part of the solution!

    Happy Reading,
