Top Ten Tuesday

Here is the link to the Top Ten Tuesday information from The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward To In 2015

1. I Was Here by Gayle Forman

I know I recently mentioned this on the blog (I've probably mentioned it a few times), but I can't imagine putting anything else first on my list. This book is, by far, my most anticipated release of 2015. It comes out January 27th, and I will be picking it up as soon as I can.

2. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

I'm going to admit it - I know nothing about this book. I have never read anything by Emery Lord, although Open Road Summer is also on my TBR. I just really like the cover. But will I buy and read it because of the cover? Yes, definitely.

3. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

I've had my eye on this one for awhile. It seems like a really fun read, although it won't be out until the beginning of June.

4. Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

I really love the idea behind this - Quinn loses her boyfriend, finds the boy whom his heart was donated to, and falls in love. It comes out April 21st, only a few days after my birthday, so perhaps I'll let it be a late present to myself!

5. Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales

Another book I judged solely by the cover. (Here's a secret: I knew very few upcoming releases before this post, which is pretty rare for me. I've been too busy to have done my research until now!)

6. Not After Everything by Michelle Levy

Both characters in this book seem to have a very troubled life, which admittedly could go right or wrong, depending. But it's compared to Eleanor and Park in the summary, and the cover is very nice, so it is on my list of books to look out for!

7. Damage Done by Amanda Panitch

While I can't tell much by the summary of this one, the mystery draws me in. Too bad the release date is so far away - in July.

8. Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

The cover. The FONT.

9. Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

I'm very interested in the summary of this one. I was going to be lazy and copy-paste it, but it's WAY too long for that. Basically, a girl with a lung disease is taken from our world into a new one, Magonia, where she is no longer sick and has the huge task of saving humanity. (I think the summary makes it sound better than I do. Click the link?)

10. Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

Many things about this book appeal to me - the cover, the title, the summary. I'll be waiting rather impatiently for it!


  1. Yes, Magonia looks so good!!
    Anyway, I actually came to say I've nominated you for the 7 Deadly Sins tag, here: http://victoriajaynesbooks.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/7-deadly-sins/

  2. Oh I love Gayle Foreman! I will definitely be picking up her new book as soon as it hits the shelf also.

    1. Yay! I tried to get a review copy but was denied :( I still feel kind of sad when I see it, haha

  3. I'm also looking forward to Tonight the Streets are Ours, Magonia, and Things We Know by Heart! I don't know much about the others, but I'm definitely going to look into them!
    my list

    1. I hope you found more you were interested in when you looked into them!
