Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created over at The Broke and the Bookish So I decided to board the Top Ten Tuesday train. Why not? It’s a fun weekly feature and a good way to meet other bloggers. The topics are always fun and interesting too!
I was going to join in last week but it turned out that I’d already written a post on the subject. So the second week of the year it is!
I was actually going to write a post about this subject too but then I saw it as a topic for a Top Ten Tuesday post and thought that was a better opportunity to talk about the ten 2015 releases we meant to get to but didn’t. There are many but I narrowed it down to the most regrettable ones. Let’s countdown from 10!
This book talks about a very important issue in a modern setting. Rape and abuse are prevalent. Apart from just the general storyline sounding interesting and dark (a great combination), I’ve heard good things from people whose opinions I trust.
Doesn’t this book sound fascinating? Hitler winning the war and a motorcycle race to meet him. Combined with a murder plot and all I can say is “give it to me!” Again, I’ve heard many great things, I hope I can get to it in 2016.
Now this is one that I actually haven’t heard many good things about. Heck, it’s rating is 3.6 on Goodreads! But do you ever have those books where the premise just sounds so interesting you just have to know what the book is all about? That’s Magonia for me.
Who doesn’t love a good revenge story? Again, haven’t heard the best of things but I’m willing to give this a shot because of the fantastic summary.
Cynthia Hand’s Unearthly series was the series that got me into YA books. Therefore, I’m pretty much willing to read anything she comes out with. Luckily, this one sounds really good. Hopefully I can pick this title up in 2016.
This one is more on my list because I couldn’t bear to wait a whole ‘nother year to get my hands on The Winner’s Kiss. Seriously, these books suck you in until they leave you a mess on the floor needing the next book. Or was that just me?
I’ve talked about how expensive this book is in Australia before and I really wanted the physical copy which is probably why I haven’t read this book yet. Don’t worry, my need overrode my OCD and I have now purchased this as an e-book. Hopefully to be read very soon.
I’ve been enviously hearing this book’s praises for months. It’s time for me to join in! Heist books are amazing! Can’t wait.
Historical romance is one of my favourite sub-genres, I can’t get enough! You can probably guess why this book needs to be read ASAP! (Besides the beautiful cover)
*Hangs head in shame*
I love this series, so why haven’t I read Winter yet? I don’t know, I’m awful!
So that’s my shameful list of 2015 releases I’m yet to read. My wish is to cross these off in 2016. Goals!
What are some 2015 releases that you are yet to get to? Do we have any books in common? What were your thoughts on the books I mention here? Let me know!
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll talk to you in my next post!
