Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 releases i haven't gotten to yet
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Brokeandbookish.com, so clearly not my idea!
This weeks topic is fantastic. And one that i could have made a top 100 (or 352 when my Amazon wishlist is right -but really who is counting the books) list without problems.
But i did waggle it down. Because that is always fun. I focused this list on books that i did not talk about endlessly already not his blog.
Anyways... as the title says: This is about 2015 books i meant to get but didn't. At least not yet. Or uno there words. All the books i wish i could buy but didn't get to... mostly because... money? Who wish they had a money laying goose or something like that? I certainly do.
Lets just... move on.
1. Buffy: Demons of Hellmouth by Nancy Holder
This is just a book that sounds as if it is a must buy for anyone that loves Buffy. I love Buffy. I want to down it. But i haven't gotten to it yet. I will. Hopefully soon.
2. The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Riley
I just heard fantastic things about this book and i just... i wanted to read this but ... yeah. title of this post kind of says it all doesn't it?
3. There will be lies by Nick Lake
This is a book sounds great and i heard mix things about it and those a always interesting to me. To see what i think of books that many people either hate or love.
I am actually not completely sure what this book is all about i do know that apparently Shelby Jane Cooper will be struck by a car in four hours. Because Shelby is running from dangers only her mother understands. And there is supposed to be a lot of things that the reader and Shelby is not sure if it is real or not.
So yeah, that sounds like something that seems pretty great and interesting to see where the check this story is going.
4. The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson
A book about books and lovers of books? yes please. Please see book title (as well as post title, really) for reasons why it is on this list! The cover might also have something to do with it. Because... beautiful.
5. Firefight (Reckoners 2) by Brandon Sanderson
I have the first one, i want the second one. It is a book series about "super-heroes" do i really need to say more? I just want this book and read on with this series! But you know -title of this post and all- haven't gotten to it yet.
6. Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman
I don't really have anything big to say about this (mostly because i don't really know what this is about, other then there is a disability in some way in play in this story). I want to read this book because i just want to. Also the cover is very wonderful.
7. The Country of Ice Cream Star by Sandra Newman
Another one of those books that sound fantastic and i want to read if it really is fantastic or not.
It is a dystopian book about a girl -named Ice cream star (can you imagine a world where someone has such a name? I can't which is why i want to read this book!) - and something about trying to survive a dangerous journey.
8. The Bone gap by Laura Ruby
I have a reason for this one. It has a bee on the cover.
I hate bees. I mean i hate them in a way that i literary twitch as soon as i hear an insect buzzing sound. I am sadly not going overboard with that and while everyone around me finds it incredibly funny when i am shaking because i heard some kind of sound that could be a bee, i do not find it funny. At all.
I kind of hope that the book will come out with a different cover soon. You know that happens, most likely not with a book i really want it to happen to, but you know. I can hope. Or just bit the bullet and ignore the horrible insect on the cover.
9. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I kind of hoped that maybe my Library would buck up and get this one because it is so popular. But they haven't and i asked. They don't plan to. So it seems like i have to get it myself. Which is fine. It sounds like a great book, i am just not sure if it is my type of book and one that i will really love or not. But i guess i will see once i own it and read it.
10. The vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I loved her "Tiger Lily" and when i saw she came out with this book i wanted to have it, like right now. But i didn't get to it. I hope to get it very soon and see if her writing is always as fantastic to and for me as "Tiger Lily" was or if it was the actual story that sucked me in.
That was ten already. And that means i am stopping. But i could have gone on a long while.
I would love to hear some of the books that you wanted to get but haven't yet. So please feel more then free to leave me a comment and lets chat a bit about book buying wishes ;)
Write more later....
