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


Happy Tuesday everyone!  This week's theme for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, is 2015 I Meant To Get To But Didn't.  What can I saw aside from so many great books came out this year, that I didn't have the chance to get through all of them.  I even own the first three books on my list...oh well, I plan on getting to them right away this year.  So many books, so little time!




Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff


Winter by Marissa Meyer


The Awesome by Eva Darrows


A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas


Ensnared by A.G. Howard



The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker



The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman


Dead Boys by Gabriel Squailia



Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine



Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older


What to you think of my list this week?  Have you read any of these books yet?  Which should I tackle first?  Do you have any recommendations for me?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog - all comments are very much appreciated!

  1. I own or have read some of the books from your list. The Witch Hunter, is a pretty good book, and I am curious about the sequel and how that will work. (you'll know what I mean after you read it)

  5. A Court of Thorns and Roses is on my list this week too! And I still have to start The Lunar Chronicles so Winter will hopefully be read someday too. Great list!

  8. I love the cover of Dead Boys, so add that one to my unending list of TBR books... :) I enjoyed The Witch Hunter and A Court of Thorns and Roses was one of my absolute favorite reads. So much more to read!

  9. I still need to read Winter, too! I has intentions of buying it as soon as it came out and reading it right away. I guess I'm not ready for the series to be over yet. Also, the size of the book is a little daunting. :P

  10. I squeaked Illuminae in just before the end of the year, and it's good. The nice thing is the sequel is coming out in mid 2016 I think, so the wait's not too far off.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I can definitely recommend both Ink and Bone and The Awesome. I was so pleasantly pleased with the both of them. I still haven't decided if I am going to read Illuminae yet but I have heard wonderful things about it.

    1. I just finished The Awesome not too long ago (review forthcoming) and I can't wait to get to Ink and Bone. :)

  12. Out of your list, I've read Winter, Illuminae, and ACOTAR. I really liked all of them! You have some great picks here! :D Shadowshaper sounds so cool! I haven't read that much urban fantasy outside of TMI and TID, so I'll have to look into that!

    Here's my TTT!

    1. I just finished The Awesome recently, it was alright but it didn't quite live up to the name for me. Can't wait to the others though! Thanks for visiting!

  14. Illuminae sounds so amazing. I need it. A Court Of Thorns + Roses is on my list too :D I absolutely adore Sarah J. Maas's writing style <3 Also, I'm a little on the fence about Ink + Bone. It was on my wishlist until a couple of days ago when I couldn't finish Prince Of Shadows by Rachel Caine. I'm not sure I love her as much as I thought :( Hopefully it won't fail us!

  15. I've only read ACOTAR and The Witch Hunter (quite a few of these are on my list too), so I'm partial to those two. I have very high hopes for most of these though!

  16. I've heard a lot about Illuminae. It looks so interesting. One day I'll have to read it.

    I actually haven't read any of these yet. But I did get Winter for Christmas, so I'll have to read it soon.

    I've never heard of The Invisible Library though and it looks good too! But that cover on Ink and Bone. Beautiful!

  19. I want to read Ink and Bone too. Winter is so good! I read it right after the release, and now I'm listening to it again. I'm catching more details the second time. The first time through I was so anxious to get to the end, I think I read it too fast.

  28. I loved Ink and Bone! Shadowshaper isn't bad either--the diversity is awesome and it has a really intriguing magic system--but I didn't really love it. Still worth reading if it sounds interesting, though.

  34. I just got my copy of Illuminae yesterday. I’m working my way slowly thought Winter, it’s so amazing but I just have so many books I’m reading at once it’s insane! I also highly recommend ACOTAR! It was one of my fav books last year! I hope you get your hands on and love these titles you are missing  Top Ten

  35. Illuminae, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Winter are all on my list too! Although I did read Queen of Shadows, part of me isn't ready to dive into another Maas world because of everything going on in the Throne of Glass series lol

  39. I really need to read ACOTAR as well. I've had the book for a while now. I'd also like to start the Lunar Chronicles as they've been on the pile for far too long as well. Seeing The Invisible Library on your list reminded me I also have that book somewhere as well :)

  42. I need to read Winter and Ink and Bone sometime soon as well! Illuminae was pretty good, although I do struggle with the sci-fi genre it was an easy read for me. I loved ACOTAR but thought it was a bit weaker than her other series Throne of Glass. Thanks for stopping by my post :)

  47. I need to read Illuminae and ACOTAR!! I was going to buy the audio for Illuminae since I read a review that said it was great and the sample was really good but I feel like it's such a unique book with the format that I want to read it in physical form.
