I've barely gotten over just how amazing 2014 was for young adult literature, and now I'm neck-deep in YA books coming out next year that I want to jump up and down about. So many of our favorite 2014 authors and books have follow-ups or sequels coming after the new year — Jenny Han, Danielle Paige, Cassandra Clare, Kiera Cass, Marissa Meyer, and I'm just rattling these off the top of my head.

And there are some buzz-worthy debuts coming to you, too. Plus some majorly esteemed young adult novelists who didn't have a 2014 release (we forgive you) are back in 2015 with books my hands are itching to grab. Heck, Judy Blume has a novel coming; it's adult fiction, but she'll always be our YA queen. There's even a rumor that John Green has his massively anticipated next novel coming. (Shh, don't jinx it.)

Essentially what I'm telling you is that not all of these books could fit on this list. Not all of these books could fit on two lists. And I've tried. I planned on doing the first six months in YA, but my head started spinning as the titles ramped up into the 20s and 30s count. In an effort to not overwhelm you, your calendar, or myself, this list will cover the first quarter of 2015, from January through March. So, it's really only scratching the surface.

Because it's just not possible to wrap my arms around every exciting upcoming release, tweet me what you're looking forward to in 2015! For now, here are 13 of the most anticipated YA novels of 2015 to get on your radar.
