Top Ten Tuesday: Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn't

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I've been kind of on a semi-hiatus since I had my little baby girl on December 23rd, but I'm trying to ease back into things. So, I'll start with this week's Top Ten Tuesday. The topic this week is "Ten 2015 Releases I Meant to Get to but Didn't". I figured this was a good one to jump in on because the events towards the end of the year kind of derailed my reading plans. There were quite a few books I really wanted to read last year that I just never got around to. Hopefully I can sneak them in this year.

Here are ten 2015 releases I wish I had read:

Soundless by Richelle Mead

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

I Crawl Through It by A.S. King

Tracked by Jenny Martin

What books did you not get to in 2015?

  1. There are some books on here that I'd really like to get around to as well. Illiminuae is popping up everywhere. I hope that you enjoy these books when you do get around to them! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :-)

  2. ACOTAR was awesome. Hope you're enjoying it. Soundless and The Stars Never Rise are two books I never quite got the chance to read either. Maybe in 2016.

  3. I want to read Soundless too, but forgot about adding it to my post this week.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week:

  4. Lottery Winning Formula Review Do you know that binary options remain cash-settled like the European-style trades? This simply means that binary options daily can be practiced on the expiration date. In case the options settle in the money at expiration, then the seller or buyer of the trades will receive a pre-specified dollar equivalent. In case the trades settle out of the money, then the seller or buyer will receive nothing. This simply displays a gain or loss risk assessment. Unlike local trades, binary options daily usually offer complete payout date due to a single pip movement. Depending on the platform a trader is using, nothing in most cases can simply mean something. This can be practically explained by saying that a trader can be offered certain payout amounts at expiration time. This also follows if the option expired out of the money. It is important to know that binary options daily can be encountered by traders under another name. In Forex exchange platforms, binary options daily can be called digital trades.

  5. The Stars Never Rise is such a good book! I hope you get around to it soon.

    Like you, I didn't get around to A Court of Thorns and Roses or Red Queen either. I'm hoping to this year though.

  6. ACOTAR was one I got to right away because I was excited for the B&B theme. Plus Sarah was touring to my lowly little city and I wanted to have read the book before seeing her! LOL!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I didn't make it to any of these, either! I wish there were more hours in the day!

    My TTT.

  8. Red Queen was on my list this week too!
    My TTT:

  9. I've read most of these. I still need to get to Tracked, I Crawl Through It, Walk on Earth a Stranger, and Stars Never Rise. I hope you get to them soon. And I hope you enjoy ACOTAR!

    Here's my TTT

  10. Ahhh! I totally forgot about An Ember in the Ashes^^ It wouldn't have mattered I suppose since I ran out of room quick and had to cut out tons of books…like Red Queen, Soundless, Walk On Earth a Stranger…The Stars Never Rise is a good one too!

    I can definitely recommend Wrath & Dawn and ACOTAR though, both were 4+star reads for me :D I hope you'll love them too AND I hope you get to all of these this year!! x

  11. Out of all these books I've only read ILLUMINAE so far but that one was AMAZING! Definitely one of my favorite books in 2015 and I loved almost everything about it. The story is exciting, the characters are awesome but the best thing for me was the concept because the document style was just perfect for this book!

  12. The Stars Never Rise was amazing! I wanted to try ACoTaR!

  13. Great list, you have a lot of awesome books that you still need to get to. I have read a few of these myself - ACOTAR, Red Queen and Illuminae. I LOVED Illuminae, it was such a wonderful and unique read. I am now desperate for book two. I also loved ACOTAR, and am counting down the days til the sequel releases. I seem to be one of only a few people who didn't enjoy Red Queen. Most of the others are ones I am still hoping to find time to get to in 2016.

    I hope you enjoy them when you get the chance to read them :) Here's my TTT, if you want to check out my list.
