Top Ten Tuesday | 2015 Releases I Wanted to Get to but Couldn’t

15 releases

Hello everyone! It’s that time of the week again! Top Ten Tuesday is a book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Basically, you get a different bookish topic every Tuesday, and you comprise a list of ten (or however many you’re able to list) relating to said topic.

Today’s topic is ‘Ten 2015 Releases You Wanted to Get to but Couldn’t.’ This a great topic, because there were so many lovely releases in 2015 that I wanted to get to but couldn’t for one reason or another. Hopefully, 2016 will be the year I get to read the books mentioned in this list. Note: this list is in no particular order.

1. Lair of Dreams (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray


This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2015, but when it came out, I was in a reading slump that I still haven’t fully recovered from. So, I couldn’t get to this.

2. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade final for Irene

This seemed like an intimidating read to me when it first came out. Also, I can’t bring myself to spend like $20 on a book that intimidates me so much. Hopefully, I’ll get around to reading this in 2016 because this has me intrigued!

3. All the Rage by Courtney Summers


I want to read this so bad, but contemporaries have been super disappointing lately, which is why I’m waiting until contemporaries interest me a little more again.

4. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven


I was interested by this when I first heard its premise, but it got a lot of mixed reviews. Also, I heard that it somewhat treats mental illnesses like they’re meant to be glorified, which put me off for a while. But I’m still willing to give this a go.

5. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

the rest of us just live here

This is another one I blame on my reading slump.

6. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli


This was on so many people’s ‘Best of 2015’ lists. I can’t wait to read this!

7. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy


Diversity in women, ftw.

8. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon


I’ve heard nothing but brilliant things, but again, I’ve been put off with contemporaries, which is why I haven’t read this yet.

9. Armada by Ernest Cline


I was super excited when this was coming out, but the hardcover was so expensive *cries* And then I just kind of forgot about it.

10. Illuminae by Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff


Reading slump. Again.

That’s it for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed this list. What are some books you wanted to get to in 2015 but couldn’t? Let me know in the comments below, and as always, happy reading! <3


  1. Great, great list! I’ve only read Armada and A Darker Shade of Magic myself last year and while I liked them both, I didn’t love them. However, Illumnae and The Rest of Us Just Live here are on my list as well! 😀

  2. Such a great list! I personally really liked All the Bright Places, so I hope you’ll decide to pick it up, and love it! 🙂 Simon was really, really good too, and SO cute. You will love it!
    I need to read Everything, Everything, too. Ah, so many books, so little time, let’s hope we can read them all! 😀

  3. Simon is one of my favorite reads last year and All The Bright Places was pretty good as well. I’m reading Illuminae right now and it’s SO good! A lot of the other titles are on my TBR as well.

Penny for your thoughts?
