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

Top Ten Tuesday’s are a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish in which anyone who participates creates a Top Ten list of books based on a weekly prompt they provide (the list for advance topics can be found by clicking the link above).  For my own sanity my Top Ten Tuesdays will always be Top Twelve Tuesdays because the graphics just look better that way ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I realized that a lot of the books I included in my Top 16 Books I Want to Read in 2016 are from the fantasy genre and while that’s helpful for completing the Flight of Fantasy Reading Challenge, I didn’t want to be repetitive in my second Top Ten Tuesday post.  I decided to make this list specifically about contemporary novels that were released in 2015 that I didn’t get to read but meant to.


The Books

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

  1. I loved so many of these. If I had to choose one that I think you should absolutely read, it’s Emmy & Oliver. It’s one of my favourites across all genres last year. The Start of Me and You is really cute, too! I totally had flashbacks to Mean Girls while reading it. I hope to eventually read Simon and I’ll Meet You There this year. I’ve only heard amazing things. :D

  2. Oh so many books! How are we to read them all?! My TTT List, which does not overlap any of yours. However, i can vouch for Emmy & Oliver and Simon… which were delightfully good reads for me in 2015.

    I definitely think you’ll like I’ll Meet You There! It’s gritty and real, and I really loved Josh and Sky and their stories. Emmy & Oliver, on the other hand, is cute! I love the way Benway writes, and think she did an excellent job with this novel. The Wrong Side of Right was a pleasant surprise last year! It reads so well, and it’s got such great characters too. The Start of Me and You is another brilliant story from Emery, and I think you’ll really like that! Making Pretty is my favorite Corey YA, so I’m excited for you to get to that. I’ll Give You the Sun is beautifully written, and definitely unique. 99 Days is brutal on the feels, especially because the situation is so complicated. Nowhere But Here got me excited about motorcycle clubs, which is not something I thought I’d be interested in. But it’s great! And Every Last Word was masterfully written!

    I still need to read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, which I’ve had since it first came out! And I was gifted Three Day Summer last year, so I should probably get on that too.
