Books to Look Forward to in 2015: Fiction

For your convenience, we've compiled a list of the most highly anticipated reads of this year - some recently published, some to be published - from lists on Buzzfeed, the Seattle Times, Flavorwire, the Washington Post, and The Millions, with links directly to the library catalog! We've tried to keep our focus on some less famous titles - we figure you've heard about the latest from Toni Morrison, Kazuo Ishiguro, Sara Gruen, Kate Atkinson, Jane Smiley, Anne Tyler, Harper Lee, etc. Apart from those, are there more titles that you think we should add to the list?  Let us know in the comments!
