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
It’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
I’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
There 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
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
I 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
I 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
I 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
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
Why 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!
