Whether you're a Kindle user or a fan of the real thing, there's no denying the joy of sitting down with a good book.
2015 promises to be a great year for readers – here are some of the books we can't wait to get our hands on!
1. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
Fans of The Mindy Project will have no doubt already devoured the actress' first biographical book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns), which was one of the most critically acclaimed celebrity novels of 2012. Why Not Me? will be another book of essays, and although she has yet to release a cover image or any sneak previews, Mindy says the book's title "has kind of been [her] subconscious motto my whole life".
2. The Girl On A Train by Paula Hawkins
There has been so much buzz about this novel that we feel like we've already read it! This murder-mystery novel tells the story of a young girl who gets caught up in a terrifying crime after seeing something untoward on her daily commute. The Girl On A Train promises to be 2015's "can't put it down" book.
3. The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
This came out just in time for Christmas, so you may have even had a copy of it from Santa! The book's prequel The Rosie Project enjoyed huge success and the movie rights were quickly snapped up, so we're looking forward to checking out the next instalment. After ten months and ten days of marriage, Don Tillman is already finding himself in hot water – and in danger of losing his wife forever. Sounds like it'll be an interesting read!
4. Girls Will Be Girls by Emer O'Toole
Galway native Emer O'Toole is a self-described "hairy feminist" and we reckon her new book will go a long way to re-writing the rules of the female gender. Emer takes us on a funny, charming and thought-provoking journey through her life all the while exploring what it means to be a girl (including singing 'Get Your Pits Out for the Lads' on national TV after growing out her body hair).
5. See How Small by Scott Blackwood
One calm autumn evening in Texas, two people walk into a quiet ice cream shop. The tie up the three teenage girls working behind the serving counter, set the shop on fire and promptly disappear. See How Small follows the aftermath of the horrific events as the girls' families attempt to pick up the pieces and police try to hunt down suspects. All the while, the three teenage girls watch down from above, trying to help those they left behind.
