Ah, 2015. You were pretty great. Thanks for the new job! However, you didn't give me a lot of time to read. You did gift me with a love of audiobooks and also a LOT of new books. I'm grateful, I really am. But I wish I had tackled my TBR a little more than I had--a resolution I'm hoping to keep in 2016. I mean, I went whole DAYS without reading. Who does that?
Anyway, here's the list of great and amazing books I wish I had had time to squeeze in during 2015.
1. EVERYTHING EVERYTHING by Nicola Yoon
I was pretty sure I would get to this as soon as I got my hands on it. It was one of my top anticipated books for the year and yet, it's still sitting pretty on my shelf, unread. I will get to it in 2015, I will.
2. THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas
Before you come after me with pitchforks and torches, please know that I've started this book in 2014 and again 2015. I will get to it in 2016, whether or not I listen to it or read it.
3. MY LIFE ON THE ROAD by Gloria Steinem
I'm not that sad that I didn't get to read this one in 2015. Now, I get to read it with Emma Watson and her book club!
4.THE HEART OF BETRAYAL by Mary E. Pearson
I blame this one on my denial that this series is ending and my desire to drag it out for as long as possible. Plus, I want to wait a little closer to when the third book is coming out so that I'm not in agony.
5. A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas
I figured I should at least try to read Throne of Glass first. Right?
6. THE ORPHAN QUEEN by Jodi Meadows
My secret sister was amazing and gave me a copy of this book and I didn't get to it yet. Sigh.
7. A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab
This list is preparing me for an amazing 2016.
8. FATES AND FURIES by Lauren Groff
After getting this at BEA--a publicist told me that as soon as she finished it she had to start over again--I knew I had to read it immediately.
9. SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA by Becky Albertalli
Heather from Harper was gracious and kind enough to send me a finished copy of this and did I read it as soon as it was delivered as planned?
10. MORE HAPPY THAN NOT by Adam Silvera
I laughingly told Adam that despite the fact that I read books like a tortoise runs a race, I would be sure to devour this book immediately after I got it. I'm sensing a trend here.
