Top Ten Tuesday (39) : Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is a Top Ten Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t. Since 2015 was my first blogging year, well…needless to say, it was the year I added TONS of books to my TBR, and never managed to read them. But they are here, waiting patiently, and I WILL read them, because they seem too good to be left out and forgotten. Don’t forget to click on the title of the books to read their fabulous synopsis!

1 • Liars, Inc., Paula Stokes

This is one book I’ve been hearing TONS of great things about, and I really wanted to read it. Time lacked, though, and I kind of forgot it in my TBR. But now, after reading the synopsis again, I just want to order it now.

2 • Last Year’s Mistake, Gina Ciocca

I love contemporary, I love cute stories, and this one seems to be all of that. Bonus points for the before/after, and the alternating sections in which this book is told…it makes it even more interesting!.


3 •  Pretending to be Erica, Michelle Painchaud

This book’s synopsis is so weird. It’s sort of a thriller, where a girl takes another girl’s place, and I’m kind of interested in seeing how that turns out. Plus, it’s a debut, and it’s gotten great reviews so…I want to read it even more.

4 • The Night We Said Yes, Lauren Gibaldi

Let’s keep on going a little bit with the contemporary, shall we?! This sweet debut has everything I’m supposed to love, AND there are flashbacks. I love flashbacks so much…let’s hope I love the book, too.

5 • The Rest of Us Just Live Here, Patrick Ness 

Oh, hello, is that Patrick Ness again?! Funny story, I think I actually put this book on my TBR before even knowing ALL the mess that Patrick Ness brings into the bookish community. By mess, I mean craziness, I mean, everyone LOVES him. I do, too, even if I read just one book..this one will be the next, maybe?!..

6 • Dumplin‘, Julie Murphy

Go big or go home. I just love this saying, and I just love the synopsis of this story about a “fat” girl coming to terms with what she looks like. She’s just herself. In terms of trusting yourself, I think this book can go BIG, and not go home. So I can’t wait to read it.

7 • The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, Sarah Ockler

Another book praised by the book blogging community…and that’s why I added it to my TBR in the first place. That, and that it seems like a sweet story, with a different main character, because she’s mute. I can’t wait to read it.

8 • What we Left Behind, Robin Talley

Long distance relationships, the struggle of figuring out where you belong, and with who…those are questions some of us ask ourselves everyday. And look at that beautiful cover. I want to read that book.


9 • Never Always Sometimes, Ali Alsaid

I read only one book by Ali Alsaid, Let’s Get Lost, and I really enjoyed it. This book’s synopsis caught my attention, and, despite the mixed reviews, I’m very curious to get it.

10 • Material Girls, Elaine Dimopoulos

Culture, trends, fame, fashion…all of those themes appeal to me, and I’m really curious in knowing where this new author takes us in Material Girls, a dystopia story telling us that being in, or out, sometimes means way too much in our world.

Those are some fabulous books there…so I NEED YOUR HELP. Which ones should I ABSOLUTELY read?! Do we share some of the same books on our lists? 💬

What are YOUR books that you missed out on in 2015, and that you want to read?!  Let me know in comments!  💬

    1. This got sent before I was done typing wow. Basically, I haven’t heard of a majority of these books but after reading the summaries, they sound so epic 😮

  1. I really want to read Pretending to be Erica, The Night We Said Yes, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, and the Summer of Chasing Mermaids. So sad I never got to them in 2015! Dumplin’ was so good! 🙂

  2. Definitely read Last Year’s Mistake. It was just a book filled with feels. Everywhere. I totally forgot about Pretending to be Erica, was so excited about it last year. Anyways, great list!

  3. Dumplin’, The Night We Said Yes and The Rest of Us Just Live Here are all the anticipated ones in 2015 that I didn’t have time to get due to exams but I’m planning on borrowing them from the library when I settled down in my new home. :’D

    But there are also Mosquitoland which I absolutely fell in love with the cover and as well as the synopsis, and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before which I really need to read ASAP >.<

      1. same here and if possible we should do a buddy read together for one of the books above! 😀 I know right, my tbr list is constantly going up in numbers :O I never have enough time to read them! We need 36 hours in a day haha xD Hmm, I always tend to like the philosophical novels so I will see how I go.
        No worries, great post by the way! 😀

  4. You should read all of them! I also loved Let’s Get Lost, so I should really read Never Always Sometimes, and I got halfway through Mateiral girls before I had to return it, and I loved Pretending to be Erica, and I NEED to read The Rest of us Just Live here, and Dumplin’ sounds good. I might have to get some of these out of the library!

    1. Aww, well, I can’t wait to read all those books, to! I really liked Let’s Get Lost, too, that’s why I want to read more from this author. I’ve heard that some people were disappointed with Never Always Sometimes, though, so I hope I won’t be. So many great books to read! 😀
      Thank you so much!! ❤
