Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Releases I Didn’t Get To

I am back to doing Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week it is about the Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t and believe me, that was a little bit of a depressing list to write. There were so many good or even great books last year and I didn’t get to nearly as many as I hoped I would, even though I read a lot in my opinion. However, on the bright side, I ordered at least a few of the ones on my list and will read them soon – YAY! Let’s do this! (As always, this is more of a list than a ranking)


1. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

22910900It’s coming in the mail today!!! I am so excited just to finally own the book, even though I have a ton of others to read first. I don’t even know when it’s in line to be read, but owning it is the first step to actually being able to read it. I cannot wait!

2. Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry

23492282I’ve only read one book by Katie McGarry, but I absolutely loved that one! I meant to get a new one for a while now and seeing as this is a new series by her, I saw the right opportunity to finally order it. It’s supposed to arrive with The Rest of Us Just Live Here today as well and that concludes my ordering of books for the month. I was serious about my book buying budget. (GAH! IT JUST CAME WITH THE WRONG COVER AND NOW I AM FURIOUS!)

3. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman

23395680There is so much buzz around this book! I’ve heard mostly good things and I am super intrigued now. I am not sure that I will get to it anytime soon, but I really do want to read it. Hopefully this year!

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)This book should be right up my alley and there is really only one reason I haven’t bought the book yet. I don’t just like to binge-watch TV shows, I also like to binge-read book series. I just find it so much more satisfying when I don’t have to wait an entire year or more for a cliffhanger to be resolved and from what I’ve heard, this one has a huge cliffhanger.

5. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

23437156I should probably read the Grisha books first … I mean, I guess it’s not necessary to read the others first, but they are in the same universe. There are just so many books to read … I really don’t know how to handle it all sometimes.

6. See Me by Nicholas Sparks

24820165I am not sure this is really a must-read, especially since I wasn’t very impressed by The Choice, but I do feel like I just need to read it at some point. It’s most likely going to be made into a movie at some point, they are probably already thinking about casting.

7. Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty

24885790I sort of imagine this like a modern day Sherlock and Moriarty fanfiction and I absolutely love the idea of that. I’ve found that while I’ve always enjoyed Sherlock, I like him best when his story is set in the present. I was so excited when I first heard about the book and I really wanted to get it … but then I simply didn’t and I have no idea why. I think it’s currently only available as a hardcover at my bookstore, maybe that had something to do with it.

8. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I love Rainbow Rowell! I love Fangirl! I have read all her books, except for this one. I was majorly excited when I first heard about the release and everybody had such positive reactions to it. But, and this sort of really bothered me, the cover doesn’t fit ANY of the editions I own. Why was there such a drastic change? Well, Cristina, lovely and crazy person that she is, sent me her copy so that I can finally read it, but wait for a new cover to buy it myself. SHE IS SO AWESOME! No one ever lent me their book from another country!


9. Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #3)I may not be the biggest fan of the Miss Peregrine series, but I do want to know how it ends. It’s the last book in the series, so I definitely have to get it and get the conclusion I want so desperately.

10. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

19542841Why have I still not read this? I don’t know. I juts didn’t have time I guess. But it is again one of those books where I almost exclusively heard only good things about, so I would like to read it sometime in the future.




So, that was it for this week. I really don’t have much of an excuse for a couple of these, but what can you do? Which books made it onto your TTT list? Leave a link in the comments below and I will gladly check it out!

  1. The rose and the dagger is “almost” out, so you will be able to read the wrath and the dawn soon enough. Also, you have the same cover as me of the rest of us just lives here, though I don’t know when I’ll be able to get to it. You wanna know a funny thing? Carry on actually looks good besides fangirl – greenish and yellow – but carry on is the wrong size and doesn’t fit on the shelf next to the other rainbow Rowell’s books 😢

  2. Thank you for including See Me. 😀 I am a Nicholas Sparks fan but I actually laugh while reading your words for it. (And yes, probably a movie is somehow on the works already!)

    Bookmarking this now! 😀

  3. omg. I see Carry On. Can I scream??? I need to get to it as well, it seems like everyone has, and they’re all raving about Baz and Simon. I have to see the fuss for myself XD I’m not sure about the Nicholas Sparks book, I never really had an appetite for any of his books, but I’m excited for the Wrath and the Dawn, because it’s not often I find a hyped YA book about my culture, so this should be interesting. ALSO. ILLUMINAE.

    …can we face the fact that we have almost identical TBRs right now ahaha?

    • I was really lucky that my friend sent it, otherwise I would be pining for Carry On right now as well!
      Nicholas Sparks is tricky and I have a weird relationship with his books. I don’t love them, but I do like reading them, because they are always sort of the same. I hope that makes sense …
      Hahaha I am happy our TBRs are so similar! It’s like we have a real bookish-connection 🙂


  4. I totally forgot about The Rest of Us Just Live Here– I definitely need to read that, too! Right now I’m in the middle of reading Illuminae, and it is SO GOOD. I highly recommend it! 🙂

  5. Illuminae, The Wrath and the Dawn, Six of Crows, Nowhere But Here and Carry On all live up to their hype!! I seriously enjoyed them all!! I never got around to read The Rest of Us Just Live Here either!! I’ve had it on my shelf since it like came out but yet still haven’t read it! I’m totally planning to this year though! Great list!! 🙂 I hope you get the time to read all these books and end up enjoying them all! 🙂

  6. I liked The Wrath and the Dawn quite a bit, and absolutely loved Six of Crows. And regarding the latter: You could probably get away with reading it before the Grisha Trilogy. It takes place in the same fictional world, but its story wasn’t born out of the trilogy’s events, if you know what I mean.

    I read all of the 2015 books I bought last year… but I really would have liked to have gotten my hands on George R.R. Martin’s A Knight in the Seven Kingdoms. It’s one of my priorities the next time I go book-shopping.

    • Yeah, that’s what I thought about Six of Crows. It’s kind of like A Court of Thorns and Roses being in the same universe but having nothing to do with the Throne of Glass series per se.
      Good on you for reading all your 2015 books! That’s a great accomplishment. I am not that big on Martin myself, having struggled a bit with A Song of Ice and Fire, but I wish you happy reading nonetheless!

  7. I want to read Carry On so badly but my order is one week late. I’m getting frustrated about it. Six of Crows is another one I really want to read but I don’t know if it will happen soon. And don’t even remember about See Me. I looked for the portuguese edition (to match my books) everywhere after Christmas and no one had it. It looks like a lot of portugueses got it as a christmas present XD

  8. The rest of us just live here. I’m definitely ordering that book, I can’t wait to read it !! I haven’t read Six of Crows either, and all the hype is kind of scaring me…well, maybe I’ll try it out anyway! More happy than not was on my 2015 TBR, too, but…oh, so many books, so little time… 😦

  9. I’m currently reading Six of Crows now (post Grisha) and I honestly think it does a bit of a better job explaining the world than the Grisha trilogy. I remember being so confused all the time reading the first one but Six of Crows seems to so a better job of not throwing you DIRECTLY into the world. I really want to read The Wrath and the Dawn too!

  10. No-Where But Here was AMAZING! I am not normally a big romance person, but it was just so good. It had me swooning! You should check it out this year! I have Six of Crows on my bookshelf to read, and I really need to get to it!


  11. Ugh cliffhangers are the bane of my existence, they keep me from reading books all the time because I don’t want to wait! I really want to read The Wrath and the Dawn too, luckily now I only have to wait a little longer for The Rose and the Dagger so that I can marathon. YAY for book mail! Enjoy 🙂 (Despite the wrong cover for NBH)


    • I had no idea that The Wrath and the Dawn was only a duology. For some reason I thought there were going to be three books, but that means I will most likely buy them both as soon as the second one is out!


  12. I hope you enjoy Carry On, you seem really excited for it! It is a lovely story, like a contemporary mixed in with a fantasy.
    The The Rest Of Us Just Live blurb is a little misleading which meant that a lot of people thought it felt flat, including myself.
    And sorry to hear about the book mail cover problem! It happened with me with the Martian as well.

  13. I just hate it when the cover that comes isn’t the same as the cover you ordered. I mean, then it won’t match after I’ve painstakingly searched up the cover that will! You definitely need to read Illuminae. It lived up to the hype for me 😀

    • I hate it too. I mean I ordered a specific one, so I also would like to get that. I hate having to sort this out and the bookshop sill hasn’t mailed me back, which is even more frustrating.
      I can’t wait to read Illuminae, but there are so many books!!!
