I was really bad about sticking to my TBR for 2015 and I missed out on a bunch of books that I had planned on checking out. Here are 10 that I didn’t make it to that I hope to get around to this year.
1. For The Record by Charlotte Huang
I’ve had this book on my wish-list for a couple years and I planned on buying it and reading it as soon as it hit shelves but that did not happen for some reason. I still don’t have a copy but I hope to get it sometime this year.
2. The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch by Daniel Kraus
I actually had this one on two TBRs last year, November and December. I was certain I would get to it one of those months but clearly I was a little too ambitious. Now I’m just hoping to get to it soon since it looks so awesome.
3. Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl
I waited in a crazy line at BEA to pick this one up because I’m such a huge Marvel fan. However, when I got back from BEA I tried to be a good blogger and read books that were already on my TBR and this one just got pushed aside.
4. This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
This book got some rave reviews from some blogger friends of mine so I had to add it to my TBR. I also happen to love the cover so that didn’t hurt my chances of picking this one up. Too bad I fail at things and didn’t actually read it.
5. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
I’m a little ashamed to admit that I haven’t read this one. I try to read a Kasie West book every year because they are just so perfect. I guess that just means that I’ll have to read more than one Kasie West book this year.
6. Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
I absolutely adored Rosamund Hodge’s debut, Cruel Beauty, so when I saw she was writing another retelling, I immediately added it to my TBR. I got an ARC and everything and yet I still didn’t read it. I need to get my priorities straight.
7. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
I picked up an ARC of this at ALAMW last year because I was that excited for it. I’d heard some good things about it and it just sounded so unique that I wanted to check it out. Here we are a year later and I have not read it because I suck.
8. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I was hoping to read more adult books last year and this was at the top of that list. Everyone was talking about this book and I even managed to find a hardcover copy of it at the thrift store. It seemed like it was meant to be but now it’s just another unread book on my shelf.
9. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
I’ve read and loved all of Heather Demetrios’ books and I was excited to get this one. I preordered it and everything but it just got put off for review books. That is not going to happen this year, that’s for sure.
10. The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
I was really excited to see that Cynthia Hand had a new novel coming out. I adored her Unearthly series and since I’m such a contemporary junkie, I was eager to check this one out. I definitely need to pick it up this year or I’m going to end up hating myself next year.
