Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the team over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week I’ll be featuring ten 2015 releases that I didn’t manage to get to in 2015. All of the books on my list are books that I own and acquired in 2015. Goodreads pages are linked!
1. The Weight of Feathers – Anna-Marie McLemore
I picked this one up in December of 2015 so I don’t feel too bad about not having read it. I know lots of bloggers who highly recommend this one, including Aila @ One Way or an Author and Summer @ Xingsings, so I’m keen to pick this one up real soon.
2. Challenger Deep – Neal Shusterman
I bought this one in November, so again I don’t feel too bad about not getting to it in 2015. This one won the National Book Award last year and I picked it up after seeing it featured in my bookstore.
3. Made You Up – Francesca Zappia
Now this is one that I’ve had on my shelf for a really long time. I ordered this not long after it was released… so I’ve had this one since May. Whoops. I was really excited for this Made You Up because it deals with schizophrenia and nothing makes me happier than a good book about mental illness. But I saw CW @ Read Think Ponder’s review and she mentioned some things that put a bad taste in my mouth…
4. The Accident Season – Moïra Fowley-Doyle
I picked up this one in September using some gift vouchers that I received for my birthday. I would’ve picked it up straight away… but I also picked up like 6 other books on the same day. It was a case of too many books, too little time.
5. Wolf by Wolf – Ryan Graudin
This is another on that I bought in December so I don’t feel too terrible about it being unread. I’ve heard amazing things about it so I cannot wait to read it in the coming months.
6. The Sword of Summer – Rick Riordan
Jeann @ Happy Indulgence sent me her ARC of this in December and I wanted to read it straight away but I also received some other great books from her that I decided to pick up first.
7. Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club – Alison Goodman
I received an ARC of this book at the HarperCollins BTCYA event (recapped in this post) in November but still haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I’ve since received a finished copy so I’ll be reading it soon. I’ve heard some mixed things from my co-bloggers over at Happy Indulgence. Jeann DNFed it but Aila really enjoyed it… so I’m excited to see what I think of it. We’ll be doing a discussion review over on Happy Indulgence… as soon as I’ve read it.
8. The Peony Lantern – Frances Watts
This is another book that I acquired thanks to the HarperCollins BTCYA event. It was one of the featured OzYA HarperCollins titles and it sounded so interesting that I had to buy it at the end of the event. It’s a historical fiction novel, set in Japan.
9. Wind/Pinball: Two Novels – Haruki Murakami
I buy pretty much all of Murakami’s new releases (well, newly translated), even though I don’t get to them straight away. This one has the most eye-catching cover. Because it contains two stories, it has two different covers and they’re both so interesting to look at! Wind/Pinball was purchased in August and I feel terrible that I haven’t read it yet. One day…
10. One Hundred Days of Happiness – Fausto Brizzi
I can’t remember when I bought this one but I’m guessing it was around August or September. This was caught my eye when I was browsing the new adult releases and it had such an interesting premise and format that I had to pick it up.I don’t think this is actually a new release. I’m guessing that it’s been published previously in Italian but newly translated? Regardless it sounds fantastic and I hope I can get to it soon.
