Ten 2015 Releases I Meant to Get to But Didn't

We're joining up with The Broke and the Bookish gals today for Top Ten Tuesday.

85 of the 124 books I read this year were released in 2015. My list of books that I didn't get to in 2015 isn't quite that long, but it's still rather lengthy. Here are ten 2015 books that I'm going to read in 2016. Happily, although the year is young, I've already knocked a couple off this top ten list!
Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin:
This is one 2015 release that I have managed to already read in 2016. I quite enjoyed this fast-paced alternate history where Hitler won World War II.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo:
So, I'm not a big fan of the Grisha Trilogy. I only read the first in the series, but after several trusted friends raved about this one (and friends who didn't necessary like the Grisha Trilogy, by the way), I decided I had to read it.

Winter by Marissa Meyer:
This was my most anticipated release of 2015, but it took me forever to get a copy. I actually started it in 2015 on Christmas Day and finished it a few days into 2016. So it's another one I can check off this list.

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson:
I have plans for this book in the coming in the next month. I'm so looking forward to finally reading it.

Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins:
This book came out in November, right near the end of the year. You know I'm always in for a blue time travel novel, and this one is high on my list. It's slotted for a post in February.

The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace:
I heard great things about Becky Wallace's debut, and I really wanted to read it. Now that I've got an advanced copy of the sequel, that desire is even more pressing.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell:
I loved Fangirl so much. How could I skip this one? I just haven't quite gotten to it yet.

Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray:
Here's another one that came out late in the year. I wanted to pick it up right away, but it got pushed to the side to make way for other projects, which seems to still be its lot despite the fact that I really want to read it!

Drowning is Inevitable by Shalanda Stanley:
I didn't get around to reading this debut in 2015, but I'm going to make it happen this year. That cover is just too lovely to ignore.

Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George:
Even a new book by Jessica Day George couldn't salvage my July, which was probably my worst reading month of the year. The kids were out of school, and I was teaching a 9 hour-a-week night class. It was a busy time.


  1. The Storyspinner is one that I want to read too, though it wasn't on my list this week.

  2. Great List!
    Drowning Is Inevitable is an amazing book! I wish more people would read it!

    My TTT! :D

  3. There are so many books on my list that I meant to get to! I hope that you enjoy all of these books! :)

  4. Oh this list has some wonderful books on it. Carry On was pretty darling but I must admit to it not being as emotional heartfelt to me as Rowell's previous books. Six of Crows is wonderful. Thanks for stopping by my TTT List earlier.

  5. oh, I really want to read Silver in the Blood too! I love her

  6. You have some pretty interesting books on your list! I have never heard of Until We Meet Again, but I love time travel novels, so I will definitely have to check it out!

  7. The Storyspinner and Winter (well, all of the Lunar Chronicles) are books I hope to get to this year also! My TTT
