Top Ten Tuesday- Books I Wanted To Read Last Year

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (January 26) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten(ish) Books I Wanted To Read Last Year But Didn't Get To

Since this week's topic was a Freebie, I thought I would get caught up on a TTT that I missed recently.  There were SO many books I wanted to read last year (and the year before that... and the year before that), and it saddens me that I didn't get to some of my ulitmate favorite author's books last year.  Or some really cool debuts that I wanted to check out (maybe find that new auto-buy author).  Anyhow, here are the books I thought I would read last year, but didn't actually get to:

1.  Lair of Dreams (Diviners #2) by Libba Bray- I wanted to read this SO bad, but it's SO BIG!!!  I guess I just got intimidated about the time devotion.
2.  I Was Here by Gayle Forman- I love Gayle Foman and feel like she writes "my kind of books".  This book definitely needs to happen soon!
3.  P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys #2) by Jenny Han- Gah, I went to the launch party and STILL have not read this.  Maybe one reason is that some girls in my book club didn't like this as well as To All the Boys and it made me nervous.
4.  Hello? by Liza M. Wiemer- I just recently found out about this book, so I guess it's okay that I haven't read it yet :)
5.  Every Last Promise by Kristin Halbrook- OMG this book is SO me.  I definitely need to get to reading.
6.  The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler- One of my favorite authors EVER.  Forever ever.  I so need to read this.
7.  Backlash by Sarah Darer Littman- Another book that is so me.
8.  Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen- Guys, I still haven't read The Moon and More either.  What the heck Michelle??
9.  I Crawl Through It by A.S. King- Love, Love, Love A.S. King.  But I have to be in the mood for her books.
10.  The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi- Sounds cool and I like the cover.
11.  The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy- LOVE the cover.  Definitely want this in my life.
12.  Sophomores and Other Oxymorons by David Lubar- So my girl Alison (my secret sister who I send to) gave this to me!!  It was so unexpected and SO awesome because I was dying for this book.  I can't wait to read it.  TOP PRIORITY STATUS!!
13.  A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis- Jamie (my secret santa) got me this and I'm SO excited to start it!!!

So these were the books I'm disappointed I didn't get to in 2015.  Hopefully I'll be able to read a majority of them this year.  What books did you want to get to but didn't??  What topic did you pick for this week's Top Ten?

  1. I read and really liked Hello? and Saint Anything. I just ordered The Summer of Chasing Mermaids so I can't wait to get it. P.S.I Still Love You is on my list too. Great picks and good luck getting to them all.

  2. I thought I Was Here was a good read-hope you enjoy it too!

  3. I have only read "I was here" of your books. I gave it four stars on goodreads. Not my favorite of the author, but did enjoy it.

  4. A Madness So Discreet looks really good to me! I hadn't heard of any of the others, so I'll have to check them out. :)

  5. Hello? was one of my favorite books of 2015! I hope you enjoy these when you get around to them. :)

  6. I loved I WAS HERE and SAINT ANYTHING. A bunch of these are still on my TBR, too, hope you enjoy them!

  7. Oh I loved The Summer of Chasing Mermaids! I hope you enjoy that one when you get to it! Lair of Dreams and Saint Anything are on my list too! I'm glad I'm not the only one in our group who waited for a Lair of Dreams ARC and then never had the chance to read it!

  8. Saint Anything is great. I need to get to PS I Still Love You also.

  9. I haven't read any of the books on your list, but they look awesome!!

  15. YAY! Great choice of topic this week. I always love freebie week as people always do such amazing topics! I didn't manage to get to most of these either but really want to get to as soon as I get a chance. I am especially desperate to read A Madness So Discreet.

    Here's my TTT post if you want to check it out. I picked non-book romances I would love to see get book adaptations.

  16. I still need to read all of these too :) My TTT

  17. Hope you get to these books soon and enjoy them. Happy reading!

  18. Every one of those but Saint Anything is on my TBR list too. I loved Saint Anything, I definitely recommend it. Hopefully I'll get to them all soon too. :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  19. I had received a copy of Hello? for Christmas as well as Zodiac- they got thrown away by accident- boy I was sooo mad. SO I still want to read Hello? as well as Saint Anything. I just got my first Sarah Dessen book-That Summer, so I am going to read that soon. Great books!!

  20. A Madness So Discreet is so great - happy reading!
