Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Releases We Wish We’d Gotten To


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: 2015 Releases We Wish We’d Gotten To

Book guilt. The worst guilt of all!


1. All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely

all american boys

I added this one to my #mustreadin2016 list!

2. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

everything everything

I’ve heard this book is really intriguing. Another for my #mustreadin2016 list!

3. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee

under a painted sky

Not only is the cover beautiful, but I hear the story is incredible.

4. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen

This book intrigued me, but I didn’t have time to get to it!

5. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

my heart and other black holes

The book summary is so intriguing. But I didn’t have a copy of it and neither did my library, so I didn’t get to it.


All of these are on my #mustreadin2016 list! And I wrote this before the ALA Youth Media Awards, and I am so happy to say that All American Boys, Enchanted Air, and George were all honored! I am even more excited about getting to these!

1. All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely

all american boys

Specifically after reading the NPR interview with the authors, I know I want to read this one.

2. Hook’s Revenge: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

hook's 2

I loved the first one, and I love Heidi!, so I definitely need to read this one!

3. Enchanted Air by Margarita Engle

Enchanted Air

I want to read this one because I love Engle’s other work, novel’s in verse, and memoirs!

4. More Happy than Not by Adam Silvera 

more happy than not

Ricki highly recommends this one.

5. George by Alex Gino 


So many people are talking about this book, from educators to Entertainment Weekly, so I cannot wait to read it.

What 2015 releases did you miss?

  1. Such really good choices here! As I *think* I’ve mentioned on your blog before, I adored More Happy than not. I am in the middle of Red Queen right now and quite like it, and each and every other book has been on my to-read list at one time or another!

  2. Yes, I have so much book guilt! The only one of these I’ve read so far is George (on audio – very good) – I need to post my review this week – my last 2015 review (speaking of guilt & being behind). I have heard such great things about Everything, Everything; Enchanted Air; and Under a Painted Sky. So many great books – never time to read them all!

    Enjoy these this year!
