Anticipated 2015 Reads

Inspired partly by Shaheen's 2015 Aussie YA list, I thought I'd try making a list of general books coming out in 2015 that I'm looking forward to. I've tried to make it complete but I've inevitably missed something. All speculative fiction and largely Australian authors (shocking, given my blog, I know). Oh, and I've put the unknown release date books in the middle instead of start or end so that they feel less left out. On the other hand, sequels with unknown release dates I've put in the month a year after the previous book's release, with a note.

January:
— The Dagger’s Path by Glenda Larke (Orbit/Hatchett), sequel to The Lascar's Dagger

February:
— Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead (Penguin), the last Bloodlines book

March:
— The  Hush by Skye Melki-­Wegner  (Random  House), new series, sounds awesome
— The Buried Life by Carrie Patel (Angry Robot, got ARC)
— The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig (Voyager, got ARC)
— Prudence by Gail Carriger (Little Brown / Hatchett), first in the series about Alexia's daughter, what's not to like? I anticipate hilarity (and the series has been rename to The Custard Protocol, which says it all)
— Fall of Fair Isle by Rowena Cory Daniells (Solaris), same world as Besieged (Outcast Chronicles) but set much later
— Cranky Ladies of History (FableCroft, pre-ordered through crowdfunding), anthology about awesome women, what's not to like?

April:
— Geodesica Ascent by Sean Williams (Open Road reprint, have ARC), not really a new release but I've been meaning to read it for aaages
— The Last Quarrel by Duncan Lay (omnibus edition, Momentum), released episodically from January, but the full edition is what counts (for me)
— Insert Title Here edited by Tehani Wessely (FableCroft), unthemed anthology 

May:
— Age of X #3 by Richelle Mead (Penguin, date a guess)

Unknown:
— The Apportioners by Deborah Kalin (Twelfth Planet Press), the 12th of the Twelve Planets
— The Moth Cycle by Isobelle Carmody (Twelfth Planet Press), the 13th of the Twelve Planets
— Day Boy by Trent Jamieson (Text Publishing), new book, horror I think

July:
— Dealbreaker by Marianne de Pierres (Angry Robot), sequel to Peacemaker

August:
— The  Foretelling  of  Georgie  Spider  by  Amberlin  Kwaymullina  (Walker Books Australia), third book in the series starting with The Interrogation of Ashayla Wolf
— Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb (Del Rey / Voyager) sequel to Fool's Assassin

September:
— Worldbreaker Saga #2 by Kameron Hurley (Angry Robot, date is a guess) sequel to The Mirror Empire
— The Lyre Thief by Jennifer Fallon, set in the world of the Hythrun Chronicles (after the events of the Demon Child Trilogy, I think)

October:
— Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie (Orbit), sequel to Ancillary Justice and Ancillary Sword

November:
— Fall (Twinmaker  #3)  by  Sean  Williams (Allen & Unwin, release date a guess), conclusion to Jump
Manners and Mutiny by Gail Carriger (Little Brown/Hatchett) last book in the Finishing School series

December:
— Starbound  #3 by  Amie  Kaufman  &  Meagan  Spooner  (Allen  & Unwin), sequel to These Broken Stars and This Shattered World
