I haven’t done one of these in quite a while! This week I’m participating in Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish.The prompt is top ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t. I have a ridiculously long TBR list, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to come up with ten releases from last year! It’s worth saying that this isn’t necessarily a top ten – more first ten than came to mind/books I spotted on my Kindle or Goodreads list which qualify.
I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet, it seems like just the sort of book I’d love! Definitely one to strike off the TBR this year.
I fell in love with Life After Life when I read it a couple of years ago, so I was very excited when I heard there was going to be a sequel/companion novel. This has received some great reviews since its release too. And yet for some reason, I still haven’t got round to reading it yet.
Cecelia Ahern has been one of my auto-buy authors for a while. I asked for this one for Christmas but – shock, horror – no one got me any books! So I may have to treat myself this year.
I’ve never read this author before but she’s come to my attention in the past year as many bloggers have been singing her praises. This historical, magical version of London sounds intriguing, and I’ve already got this on my Kindle.
This one is also sitting on my Kindle, waiting for me to get round to it! I love a good psychological thriller and this received a lot of praise last year.
I’ve only read one other book by this author – Never Let Me Go – but this one sounded really intriguing and is his first foray into fantasy. It’s had some quite mixed feedback since its release though so it’s one I may not get around to for a while.
YA author Sarah J. Maas has received so much love in the blogging world, but I’ve still never tried one of her books! I got this on a Kindle deal last year, and I’m hoping I’ll finally get around to it soon and see what all the fuss is about.
Another sequel to a book I loved! After You follows Moyes’ 2012 release Me Before You which was a huge hit. I’d love to find out what happens next.
I have to confess I hadn’t actually heard of this author before this book caught my eye, but now his name seems to be everywhere! This book sounds really unique, and it’s one I hope to read soon.
I got a review copy of this a few months ago, and shamefully I still haven’t got round to it. The cover is beautiful and it sounds like it could be an amazing read. I realised I did quite poorly on reading books about other cultures last year, so I’ll be trying to rectify that in 2016 starting with this one.
What books did you not get around to last year? And which in my list would you recommend? I’d love to hear – let me know in the comments and leave a link so I can visit your blog 🙂
