Guess what?! It’s Tuesday again! Every Tuesday TTT is hosted over @ The Broke and the Bookish which a new theme that we get to make a list of ten related (and bookish) things. Exciting, no? It’s always exciting and great fun to read everyone’s lists so make sure you check out the link up on the official page to see everyone else’s!

This week’s theme is:

Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t

Except this will be so much more exciting to just do the books I meant to read in 2015 regardless of when they were released. So let’s start counting.


Halo by Alexandra Adornetto


I bought this in a Dymocks sale (for $5.00 *party*) and told myself I’d marathon the whole series straight away. Did I? Nope.


Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein


Here we have a Christmas present from several years ago. I know this is a good book and I want to read it. But I just have too many damn books. Sigh.


The Madness of Hallen by Russell Meek


I’m not entirely sure how long I’ve had this for anymore. I bought it at Comic Con a few years ago because I made the crucial mistake of making eye contact with the author and he was very sweet and was all like, I’ll sign it for you if you like? So of course handed over far too much money than a book should rightly cost and purchased it. And didn’t read it. Seriously, what’s wrong with me? This sounds awesome.


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


This is a birthday present (in that, I bought it for myself . . .). It’s also Rainbow Rowell and I am STILL yet to read any of her works. *Harrumph*. This year . . .


Talon by Julie Kagawa


This was a birthday present . . . my birthday is in May. It’s also Kagawa and I’m one thousand times excited to read it. I have nothing to say for myself apart from: you need to sort your priorities out.


The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa


BECAUSE KAGAWA. And also this series is fabulous, and omg the ending to the last one. And argh, the final installment was released at the end of last year. Why haven’t I picked it up yet? WHY?!


A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler


I bought this when the shortlist for the Man Booker prize for last year was announced, this was one on the list that I was keen to read. I said I’d read it as soon as I got home. I didn’t.


Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray


I actually have picked this up and read the first few pages (on those strange days when you go through your bookshelf and just pick through books). I just really want to read it, and I’ve had it for over a year, but omigahd, it’s huge.


The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris


I bought this book this time last year because HOW COOL DOES IT SOUND? Okay, I’ll admit I only bought it because it said “Loki” on the front, and that the only reason I care about the word “Loki” is because of the words “Tom Hiddleston”. Don’t give me that look.


Allegiant by Veronic Roth


Oh the shame! That’s right, kids. I still haven’t finished this series. BUT, I also haven’t been spoiled (spoil me and you die). I’m planning on reading this next after putting it off for so long because of the apparently controversial ending – I’m a little scared, I must admit.

And with that we slay another Tuesday! Hooray! Don’t you just love lists?

Have you read any of these books yourself & really enjoyed it – get your pom poms out and give me some motivation!

Do you participate in TTT? If so, link yourself down below, I’d love to see your list!

 Arrivederci tutti and happy reading!

  1. I hope you enjoy Fangirl, I only just read it last year and I absolutely loved it even though it’s not the kind of book I normally read. Rainbow Rowell is now one of my favourite authors 🙂
    I feel like I really need to start Talon and The Iron Fey series, they’re such big books and I love Julie Kagawa’s other series, The Immortal Rules.

    1. I’m almost 100% certain that I will love Fangirl from what I’ve heard so fingers crossed! I would recommend the Iron Fey series – I absolutely loved it, the characters are just to die for. I actually haven’t read The Immortal Rules series yet but I have seen it floating around 🙂

      1. I really loved Fangirl and it isn’t the kind of book I’d normally read. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Iron Fey series, and it seems to be the most popular of her books, obviously there’s a reason for that 🙂 I’d definitely recommend The Immortal Rules books if you haven’t read them already.


  2. I forgot that I wanted to read The Gospel of Loki (kind of half for the same reason you do!). I read a review for it earlier in the year that basically gave it two thumbs up – hopefully we both get to it soon 🙂
