Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn't
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to choose their top ten 2015 releases they meant to get to but didn't. The following books are in no particular order.
1. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan is definitely a book that I cannot wait to read. Not only is it set in Boston but I heard great things about this Norse Mythology middle grade read. Also, Riordan balances adventure and humor quite nicely.
2. Winter by Marissa Meyer is the fourth and last book in The Lunar Chronicles. It has been on my TBR for awhile and I had the chance to read 100 pages before I had to stop because I was getting ready for a month long feature called Pottermas. Elizabeth from Book YAbber and I spent about a month or so reading all the Harry Potter books for the December feature. I actually finally got the book from the library again so I will continue the book shortly.
3. Renegade by Kerry Wilkinson has been on my TBR list since I finished reading Reckoning. If you are looking for a dystopian, definitely check out the Silver Blackthorn series. The third installment is coming out in May.
4. Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales is definitely a book that I want to read since I fell in love with Sales' This Song Will Save Your Life.
5. The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski is the second book in The Winner's Trilogy and I have been meaning to read it last year. The Winner's Curse is so good so I don't know why I didn't read this installment yet. The Winner's Kiss is coming out in March.
6. For the Record by Charlotte Huang is definitely a book up my alley. Books that weave contemporary and music are pretty much books I know I will like.
7. Serpentine by Cindy Pon sounds fabulous and I still haven't read it yet. It's the first book in the Kingdom of Xia series. I am picky about some fantasy titles but this one definitely grabbed my attention because of the Chinese folklore.
8. The Heir by Keira Cass is the fourth book in The Selection series. I heard mixed reviews about this installment since The Heir is about Maxon and America's daughter, Eadlyn. I will eventually read The Heir because The Crown is coming out in May.
9. This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzie Lee is a Frankenstein retelling that I am hoping to read this year. I wish that I read this book around the fall because it's the perfect Halloween book.
10. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson is a graphic novel that I have heard great things about. Stevenson also illustrated the cover to Fangirl so I am dying to read Nimona. I love Stevenson's illustrations in general and would love to see how her words and illustrations collide.
