TTD: Coming Soon

Doing this one out of order because I probably ought to write it while it's still 2014. ;) [personal profile] umadoshi asked what books and movies I was most looking forward to for 2015.

Movies: The big franchise films are the ones that come to mind -- Mockingjay Part 2 and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Also Agent Carter, which is television not movies, but I tend to think of the MCU as a series of movies, and there is nothing else I'm looking forward to more, in any medium. So, so, so excited. Just a week away now! And the new Star Wars, of course, although I'm looking forward to that with as much trepidation as excitement.

Books: The book I'm most looking forward to reading in the near future is Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie, which has been out since like October, but I haven't yet gotten around to picking it up. Also Katherine Addison's The Goblin Emperor, which isn't out in paperback until March (though I may bite the bullet and get that one anyway, maybe as an ebook, because I've heard so many people gushing over it, and I might need to read it before Hugo nomination deadline). As for books that are actually new in 2015, top of my list are "Voyage of the Basilisk" by Marie Brennan, the two new Kate Elliott titles -- "Court of Fives" and "The Black Wolves" -- and "The Fifth Season" by N.K. Jemisin. Not to mention, like, practically every book on this list from [community profile] ladybusiness, which continues to be the most dangerous spot on the Internet for making my to-read list explode.
