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

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Okay, so there are way more than just 10 books released in 2015 that I meant to read.  Some of these I'd even preordered and then didn't get to.  I'm going to try and pair it down to 10 that I really wanted to read.  Here we go.

1. The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer - This one sounded so interesting.  I've always been interested in cemeteries but had never read a book with one in it.  This book was high on my list.  I don't know what happened.

2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - After a year of so many books, I just didn't get to it.  I got this book for Christmas though, so I've got no excuse anymore.

3. The Sin Eaters Daughter by Melinda Salisbury - This one was going to be so good and then I didn't read it.  There are so many books in the world!

4. Made You Up by Francesca Zappia - The concept of this book sounds so interesting and I really like the cover, but I didn't get to it.  I didn't use the library that much this year, so that greatly hinders the amount of new books I get to read.

5. Rook by Sharon Cameron - Okay, so I preordered this book, which means I had no excuse.  However, I somehow managed not to read it.  (Are you seeing the pattern?)

6. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis - I didn't know this book existed until I received it in an OwlCrate box but it looks so good.  It's definitely going to be read in 2016.

7. Soundless by Richelle Mead - I also got this one in an OwlCrate box and didn't get around to it.  I love getting books every month, but they sure do pile up!

8. Illuminae by Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff - This just didn't pan out, but it's relatively new still and I'm working on it!

9. The Rose Society by Marie Lu - I had some issues with sequels this year, and I just didn't get to so many of them.  This unfortunately was one of them.

10. Ice Like Fire by Sarah Raasch - See above book.

11. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - V.E. Schwab has just been put on the back burner altogether in 2015.  I was going to read so many of her books, but never fear, 2016 will be her year.


  1. Illuminae made my list this week too - I thought I was like the only blogger left that hadn't read it yet - you've just made me feel better LOL! I could have added Soundless, Red Queen and Sin Eater's Daughter too but then I'd have had way more than 10 on my list XD I also still need to read Snow Like Ashes, Young Elites…gah! So many books, so little time. I can definitely recommend ADSoM though, which was a 5-star read for me! I hope you can get to all of these this year Alex xx

  2. A Darker Shade of Magic and A Madness So Discreet are two of my favorite reads from last year! Happy reading!

    Check out my TTT.

  3. I can definitely recommend ILLUMINAE, it was one of my favorite books in 2015!

    I also want to read A MADNESS SO DISCREET soon, I originally planned to read it during last year's Halloween season but unfortunately didn't find the time…

  4. Red Queen and A Darker Shade of Magic were both on my list this week too!

  6. Ice like Fire is on my TTT list this week too! I've read Red Queen and Illuminae. Illuminae was one of my favorites of last year.
