Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t
I’m not much of a reading of current releases so there are very many 2015 releases that I didn’t get to read last year. I’m still hoping that I will read them sometime (*distracted by shiny new books on all those lists of upcoming releases that people keep publishing*). Sigh too many books to read. How does one ever do it?
Satin Island – Tom McCarthy
So close. I had borrowed this as an ebook but never got to it as too many holds came in at the same time!
Under the Udala Trees – Chinelo Okparanta
The Book of Phoenix (Who Fears Death 0.1) – Nnedi Okorafor
Was so close – had borrowed it but only read a chapter before I had to return it (this was just before my three week vacation in Singapore!). I am going to borrow it again though!
The Dead Ladies Project: Exiles, Expats, and Ex-Countries – Jessa Crispin
The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness – Kyung-sook Shin
The Shore – Sara Taylor
Especially after Andi’s post on the book.
The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins
Yup, one of the most talked about books of 2015. Maybe this year!
Paulina & Fran – Rachel B. Glaser
I was very drawn to this cover. My library doesn’t have a copy of this though so may have to ILL it or make a request for them to purchase it.
The Traitor Baru Cormorant – Seth Dickinson
This one’s title has always intrigued me.
Man Tiger – Eka Kurniawan
Kurniawan’s Beauty is a Wound was quite a stellar unforgettable read. I’m sure this one is too. It was originally published in Indonesian in 2004.
