While I am in the midst of reading about Darwinism, enhancing evolution, and bioethics (with the occasional Brontë and Achebe to lessen the workload when term starts again), I thought I'd share with you a few of the new titles I am excited to read this fall in between essays and dissertations. I was intending this post to merely contain titles that haven't been released yet; however, going through my Amazon wishlist I realised there are so many books released throughout 2015 that I am dying to get my hands on. So this list therefore consists of books from throughout 2015. Let's dive in:

First up on the list is Ruth Ware's In a Dark Dark Wood. To me, this sounds like a typical thriller particularly aimed at females (slightly sad that 'female' books are still a thing, but if it gets people reading I can't fault it too much). From the Amazon description: 'Nora hasn't seen Clare for ten years when she is suddenly invited to her hen do - but something goes wrong. Very wrong.' While the plot is neither groundbreaking nor super exciting, I've heard good things about this book and have seen it appear on numerous Instagram accounts, so I still have high hopes for this one!
(P.S.: the hardcover of this is currently only £7.00 on Amazon!)

Ah, Rainbow Rowell. I loved Eleanor and Park. Fangirl was partly like reading a story about myself five-or-so years ago (I used to be hardcore into the fanfiction scene online). I love Rowell because she writes high-quality young adult novels, which are a guilty pleasure of mine, so naturally when I came across Carry On on Amazon it was just too easy to click that pre-order button. From what I've gathered, Carry On is the story Cath writes about Simon Snow (a pseudonym for Harry Potter if you ask me) in Fangirl. I'm well excited to receive this in early October and cuddle up on the sofa with a warm drink and freshly baked cinnamon buns (or some other equally delicious bakery).

What can I say, t'is the season for thrillers and mysteries. Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver sounds to me like the perfect mix between young adult fiction and Gone Girl-esque mysteries. I'm beyond excited to get my hands on this as it's supposed to have an amazing twist towards the end and the story itself is apparently strangely narrated but nevertheless addictive. In other words, my cup of tea.

I cannot actually believe how excited I am about this book! I only found out about its future existence a few days ago, but Orbiting Jupiter by Garry D. Schmidt has already got a hold on me. Sadly, it is not released until early January 2016 (*sobs*), but you know what they say, good things come to those who wait etcetera. Labeled 'a heartbreaking story', Orbiting Jupiter tells the story of two young boys Jack and Joseph, the latter of which was incarcerated for trying to kill a teacher. Following this, he ended up living with Jack's family. It turns out Joseph - despite being a mere fourteen years of age - has a daughter he's never seen, and so the two boys set out on a journey to find his daughter. I mean, the description alone is enough to make me slightly teary-eyed.

Are there any new releases (or old, for that matter) you can't wait to get your hands on? Let me know, as I'm always looking to expand my Amazon wishlist.
