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.
