It’s Tuesday again, which means I’m obviously participating in Top Ten Tuesday (from The Broke and the Bookish). I may not be a super consistent blogger, but my TTTs are always reliable. This week we’re discussing 2015 releases we meant to read last year, but never got around to. I struggled with this week’s topic. It turns out that I read most of the 2015 releases that caught my eye, but here’s a list of the sneaky ones that managed to evade me. It would appear that there are two different kinds of books I’m interested in but still don’t read: the kind I don’t go searching for, and the kind I just can’t get my hands on. The first three on this list are the latter type, while the last three books on this list are of the former type.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas: I spent much of 2015 reading the first 3 books of this series, then I requested QoS in ebook form from my library. I finally got it in the last week of December, but had to return it unread thanks to a couple of unlucky coincidences.
The Rose Society by Marie Lu: I read the first book in this series a month or two ago, towards the end of 2015. I’ve been on my library’s wait list for The Rose Society ever since.
Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch: This was another series I started towards the end of 2015. Unfortunately, my library doesn’t yet have the ebook available for this sequel.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: Moving on to the books I didn’t even try to read. Everyone loves this book, so I hope I get around to it in 2016.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman: Another book with good buzz. Another book I may have neglected to look for.
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen: I’ve been following Sarah Dessen on Twitter for years, so sometimes she feels a little like an aunt. She seems like the sweetest woman in the world and I feel almost like I know her. I would like to read her newest book at some point, to both support her and indulge in a little high school nostalgia.
There were an awful lot of books by Sara/Sarah’s in this post, weren’t there? Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave me your TTTs in the comments.
