Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch – I absolutely LOVED Snow Like Ashes, it was one of my most anticipated releases of 2014. It makes perfect sense that it’s sequel would be one of my most anticipated reads for 2015! Also, THERON! I need more of him. ASAP.

  1. I can’t wait to read The Wrath and the Dawn and Shatter Me! Actually, I haven’t read a single book on this list, but I’ve seen them enough times to note them as good books and quite a few are on my TBR.
