Top Ten 2015 Releases We Meant To Get To But Didn't

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!

Today is that shame list sort of day! We had REALLY good intention to get to these! THIS YEAR. WE WILL.


Daisy's Picks


I've been meaning to dive more into both graphic novels and manga and a female Thor is just not something I'm able to resist. Now I only have to find time to actually pick it up...


2. Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
People have been RAVING about this and it makes me both very much want to pick it up and a bit scared of it...


3. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
I hear this is awesome. I also have it staring at me from my shelf. I should really read this soon...


Bridget's Picks


4. Find Me by Laura van den Berg
A mysterious Alzheimer’s-like illness sweeps the nation, and one woman, finding herself immune, admits herself to a hospital meant to study the survivors. Laura van den Berg’s debut novel sounds incredibly fascinating. Released: February 17, 2015. I own this, I just haven't gotten to it yet.



5. Touch by Claire North
As he’s dying—as he’s being murdered—Kepler reaches out to his killer in one last bid for mercy. He touches the killer’s hand, and suddenly he’s looking down at his own dying body. Kepler has discovered an incredible talent: he can jump from body to body, living in different hosts and experiencing the world through their eyes. Released: February 24, 2015. Ditto above. I'm writing this on Sunday and I had plans to start this over the weekend, so here's hoping that by the time this post goes live I've started reading!


Jamie's Picks 


This wasn't one I was anticipating for 2016 but it showed up randomly in the mailbox and I read the summary and I was like YES YES YES I need to read this. I really mean to get to it in the Fall but then I got a dog and I stopped reading very much for a couple months. PRIORITY FOR THIS YEAR. It looks like such a unique book and story!



This was one of my priority/most anticipated for 2015 and I FAILED because again, around the time I was planning to read it, I adopted our dog Finn and reading fell to the wayside for a couple months! I cannot wait to read this soon!


Lauren's Picks


Why haven't I started this? Vicious by Schwab is now one of my absolute favorites! This one will definitely be read ASAP!


I'm pretty sure I bought this pretty close to it's release date. So why haven't I read it yet? Life... it just gets in the way. 


I absolutely loved Ready Player One. I was sooooo excited when he released another novel. I can't wait to dive into these pages!

 

Tell us what books YOU meant to get to in 2015 but didn't!!

  1. I haven't heard of any of these picks - I swear I don't live under a rock! I couldn't resist adding Touch to my TBR. Hope you were able to start it this weekend and I look forward to reading your review soon!

    I have Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda on my TTT this week too and I've heard great things about it!

    Thanks for the TTT!

    1. I couldn't agree more. And the sequel will come out in April, you should totally read it.

  6. Ooo, I forgot about adding Thor to my post this week!! I want to read it too.

  7. Simon was a super fun read for me last year! I also never got around to The Orphan Queen or A Darker Shade of Magic even though they were on my list. Tonight the Streets Are Ours was pretty fun I hope you enjoy it! Also I must admit to still having yet to own or read Ready Player One despite all the talk on it, I know fail.

  8. Orphan Queen is one I decided I wanted to read recently, so while I couldn't technically include it with my post, it is one I hope to get to soonish!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  9. Aww Lauren, I hope you get time to read A Darker Shade of Magic and The Girl at Midnight soon! I loved them both, actually they both made it into my Top Ten of 2015!

    Happy Reading

  10. My puppy, Pages, does not allow me to read as much at home as I used to either... and despite her name (or because of it) she insists on trying to eat books, so I've had to put them on higher shelves and still end up chasing her around the house when she manages to snag one. She's almost 6 months now, so hopefully it'll get calmer sooner- when she's all sleepy and snuggly, she will curl up with me and let me read, but always on her terms. ;)

    I missed most of these too, hopefully 2016 is the year I find timeturner and use it to read all the books. It could happen.

    1. My puppy eats books too! And my house is full of them--she has to be supervised in the room with my bookshelves because sometimes she will just casually lean over and start tasting books on the bottom shelf.

  11. I am really curious about the Thor graphic novel and Tonight the Streets Are Ours. I've added them to my TBR.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really wanted to get to Simon & the Homo sapiens agenda as well. It looks so good. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've wanted to read Armada. I should probably read Ready Player One first though. I know - terrible. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  14. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda was my all time favourite book of last year! It was so damn amazing! A Darker Shade of Magic was also pretty amazing. I totally forgot all about The Girl at Midnight! I need to get to The Orphan Queen too.
    Great list! :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Touch sounds amazing...... going to download now.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great picks! Though I didn't have any of them of my list, there wre a couple that were on my radar in 2015 that I just didn't get to. Tonight The Streets Are Ours and A Darker Shade of Magic really peak my interest. Thanks for the TTT! :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. After I finish Winter, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is waiting for me right underneath it. I hope it's as good as everyone says, too!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I also missed Simon vs and A Gathering... *sigh* I need to read them asap. Nice list by both! :D

  19. READ ZEB FINCH! NOW! It's that awesome! I'm telling you, it's a crossover from YA to adult and doesn't fit anywhere. Do it; today!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh so many books! How are we to read them all?! My TTT List, which overlaps yours above some.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh I totally forgot about Simon and the Girl at Midnight! So many books!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Orphan Queen and Simon were two of my very favorites last year! I hope when you get the chance to read them that you love them too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah yes! A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab is on my list too. I need to read the first one. You might have given me the nudge I needed to read Vicious! Thanks, Lauren.

    It seems I have many series to dig into! ��

  24. I also planned to read Armada and didn't, although I've heard that it wasn't as good as Ready Player One and that makes me want to read it less.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Of the two I've read from your list, Simon is AWESOME, but I was a little disappointed in Tonight the Streets are Ours. It was good, but not as great as the other two Sales books I've read.

    I'm interested in Thor now too. I'm not a manga/comics girl, but I am liking graphic novels more and more, and I just read Ms. Marvel: No Normal, which was fun. And Touch sounds super creepy cool.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Armada ended up being a little disappointing for me, but I've heard the audio book narration is fantastic.

    1. Armada is on my list too. In what way was it disappointing?

      Delete
  27. I haven't read any of these yet either. I hope you enjoy them once you get around to them!!

    My TTT: http://www.jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2016/01/top-ten-tuesday-2015-releases-i-meant.html

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, thanks for sharing Find Me- I'm putting that on my list now!

    ReplyDelete
  29. A really interesting group of books. I don't read fantasy but the Orphan Queen looks intriguing. I hope you are enjoying your dog. I have 3 dogs and some days it is impossible to get any reading or writing done as their needs must come first. Enjoy your books and your dog.

  30. Definitely read 'Thor', Daisy. It was the very first comic I've read/subscribed to and it has been worth every cent - she's just the best.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Armada was really good, but I didn't love it as much as Ready Player One. Maybe, because RPO has a special place in my heart. IDK. It was pretty cool, though!

    1. ADSOM and Simon Vs. were two of my top book picks or 2015. :)

  32. Ooops, I accidentally posted my comment as a reply. Let's see if this posts.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, the female Thor comics are fun! I liked them a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Goddess of Thunder is a GREAT read and a quick one. I hope you love it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I actually won a copy of Zebulon Finch, but I didn't look at the synopsis until just a few days ago. I definitely should have read that in 2015.
