Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
Before I get started, let me plug my link-up “challenge” that directly applies here…
I shared recently that there are so many books I’m super excited to read before they’re published, and then I don’t read them right away when they come out. I wanted to make a list of these books and resolve to read them. When I saw a lot of others agree with me on Twitter, I decided to make a little challenge for it. I’ve been calling it a link-up instead because that’s really all you need to do to join in! You simply make a list of the books you didn’t get to in 2015, and then try to read them! It doesn’t have monthly check-ins or mini-challenges; it will probably just be checking in with ourselves at the 6 month mark and at the end of the year. This TTT topic could be a perfect post to link up if you feel like joining Must Read 2016, so it requires no extra effort on your part 😉 Check it out here!
I already made my own list of books I hope to finally read in 2016, but I did feature books that were released before 2016. This list will focus exclusively on the 2015 releases I didn’t get to.
Things I Can’t Explain by Mitchell Kriegman | I haven’t heard much about this one and I think a few people didn’t like it to much, but I can’t NOT read this follow-up to Clarissa Explains It All.
Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly | This one is another book reminiscent of childhood shows/books. I guess it’s Nancy Drew-like? I’ve heard mixed reviews on this one too…
My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga | This one was actually a preorder and it’s spent a lot of time sitting on my shelf. I think my feels just aren’t ready for it yet!
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West | I kind of have this issue where I never want to run out of Kasie West books. I’ve been hoarding this one because I want to know I always have the option to read it!
The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski | I don’t have an excuse for this one, to be honest. I wanted to read it during the summertime and it just never happened.
The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne | This one sounded really interesting and I’ve heard great reviews so far, even though it was on the quieter side in 2015. LOVE this cover, too.
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows | Die, hype monster, die. I also kind of wanted to wait until the second book came out because it seems like this book will break me beyond repair. Y/N?
Heat of the Moment by Lauren Barnholdt | I was fully read to read this trilogy over the summer but didn’t, because I had just finished another book by the same author and wanted to wait. Whoops.
