Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn't

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by my other blog The Broke and the Bookish

This list could also be dubbed as 'all the ways I failed in 2015'. Oh well.

1. Spinning Thorns by Anna Sheehan: I loved A Long, Long Sleep and am very excited by this fairytale retelling of Sleeping Beauty!

2. Mystic by Jason Denzel: this looks so, SO good! And the cover is so pretty! I failed at getting my hands on this, but it's on the list for 2016!

3. Walk On Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson: I can't believe I haven't read this, I LOVE Rae Carson's writing! This should me remedied soon.

4. The Shadow Behind the Stars by Rebecca Hahn: It's about the Fates. OBVIOUSLY I bought this, but then failed to read it..

5. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray: The Diviners was amazing but this thing is HUGE and it scares me a little. But I will definitely read it!

6. The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin: there's really not enough buzz about this amazing author, I loved her Inheritance trilogy and really have no good excuse for why I failed to read this one.

7. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: there was SO much hype surrounding this book! I think that's part of why I failed to read it, but I'm still planning to!

8. Half a War by Joe Abercrombie: LOVE this series!! But I'm slightly terrified of reading the final book in a series, so this has been staring at me from my shelf...

9. The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott: this sounds amazing and I LOVE the cover!

10. Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger: 2015 was the year in which I discovered the awesomeness that is Kody Keplinger. I should really get my butt in gear and not only read this one, but ALL of her books.

Tell me what 2015 releases you missed out on reading!


  1. Red Queen is sitting on my kindle waiting for me. I have heard the hype but honestly, I haven't heard people raving about it after they read it, you know?

  2. If I had to rate the books in the series, I think Half a War is my 2nd favorite (the first book was the best imo). Definitely a great ending for the series.

    I LOVED Lair of Dreams!

    You have quite a few titles that I still need to read too: The Fifth Season, The Shattered Court, Walk on Earth a Stranger.

  3. I hadn't seen Spinning Thorns before, that one is definitely going onto my wishlist :)

    My TTT.

  4. Red Queen was on my list this week too!

  5. I started on a top ten this week but then realised it was just making me feel guilty. I think mostly I did quite well with the new books I really wanted to read lats year though. I've got Red Queen on my TBR but it's not been there that long.
