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.
