Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and The Bookish. There were so many amazing books released in 2015 I never got to, which means I’m totally playing catch up this year. Here are 10 that are at the top of my list! (Click the covers or the title to go to their Amazon pages)
This YA book follows an immortal teenager who recounts his life as he sits under the World Trade Center on 9/11. I’ll probably listen to this on audiobook since it is done by Kirby Heyborne one of my favorite narrators for YA.
This is the second book in Marie Lu’s YA historical fantasy series, The Young Elites. It follows a group of outcasts trying to take down their monarchy. The first book ended in a huge cliffhanger so I can’t wait to see what happens next.
This is the final book in the popular Lunar Chronicles. This series is like if Star Wars meets Grimm’s fairytale and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.
My 2015 was all about learning about the world of romance and one of the things romance does best is anthologies. Each story in this anthology is a historical romance that takes place around Juneteenth.
This adult mystery/thriller seemed to be everywhere this year. I’m usually really behind on reading popular books so I want to read this one this year.
I have really been trying to find a book that scratched my Sons of Anarchy itch and I think this YA may just be it.
This was a very popular YA fantasy debut last year about a girl who goes undercover as a slave to the ruling class. I’m actually listening to this on audio now and it is great.
This book will probably go down as one of the most important pieces of non-fiction published last year and at only 152 pages I need to make time for it.
King writes really great surreal, feminist and experimental YA. I started this book, but it after putting it down I forgot to pick it up. I can’t even begin to explain what this book is about it’s so bizarre.
I started reading this book while at the library one day but never finished it. It’s about a girl from the Caribbean who goes to America get away from something terrible that happened to her. And she meets a boy. It seems to have some magical realism vibes which is my reading catnip.
What books released in 2015 are you looking forward to finally reading this year?
