This week for Top Ten Tuesday the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to think about the 2015 releases we really hoped/planned/had the best intentions to get to last year, but didn't. At the expense of my humongous queue of backlist books, it turns out I actually did read quite a lot of new books in 2015 so creating this list wasn't as easy as I assumed it would be.
But, not surprisingly, I did manage to come up with 10 books that I really wanted to read last year and still do. Some of them I even had checked out from the library! I added tons of 2015 releases to my TBR after looking through all the best-of lists and end-of-year wrap-up posts, but those aren't included here. These are all books I've been wanting to read for a while, in most cases since before they even came out.
There are some pretty popular titles here -- have you read any of them? What should I make sure to read and what should I not beat myself up over if I never get to it? What books did you hope to read last year and didn't?
