This weeks Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre (I know, I know. Picking all time faves. I'm MEAN. But I like knowing people's definitive faves). Can also break it down into sub-genre if that helps?

My favorite genre is Science Fiction, but one could hardly ask me to pick favorites there. I decided instead to do my favorite of the memoirs that I've read. My full list of memoirs are here, with some biography and anthologies of women sprinkled in.

Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Releases

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 

 where mostly bookish topics are picked - and you show your top ten!

 

This week's topic is... top 10 releases you are most excited for the year 2015! YAY! Top Ten always has the topics I want to post about anyway so I love joining!! I haven't done a whole lot of research on 2015 releases, but I have ten that I'm super excited for! There will be repeat authors, but I have to go with what I'm most looking forward to :) I put them in order according to their release date! (P.S. I am getting the release dates according to goodreads, not sure how accurate they will be!)

 

1. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

 

 

Release Date: January 27, 2015

I'm looking forward to this, just not as much as Winter. UGH. Am I the only one who hates this cover?! It's a shame since the Lunar Chronicles series is so pretty!!

 

2. I Was Here by Gayle Forman

 

 

Release Date: January 27, 2015

I enjoyed both of her duologies, Just One Day and If I Stay so I'm looking forward to more of her books! I'm not as excited about this one as other ones on the list but I will read it and still looking forward to it! Sounds good!

 

3. Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

 

 

Release Date: January 31, 2015

Colleen Hoover. Nuff said. Although it does sound pretty cool!

 

4. Confess by Colleen Hoover

 

 

Release Date: March 10, 2015

AHHHHHH so excited!! Colleen Hoover has become one of my favorite authors and I will devour all of her books!!

 

5. The Start of You and Me by Emery Lord

 

 

Release Date: March 31, 2015

- I read and enjoyed Open Road Summer so much so will definitely continue to read all of her books!

 

6. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

 

Lair of Dreams (The Diviners, #2)

Release Date: April 14, 2015

I LOVED the Diviners so I'm super excited for the second book in the 4 book series!! YAY! Although Amazon says this releases December 9, 2014 but I think that's a lie (but I'll find out on the 9th!)

 

7. The Fill in Boyfriend by Kasie West

 

 

Release Date: May 5, 2015

- I love her books, they are always cute and quick reads!! I just need to read Split Second to be caught up!

 

8. Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold by Katie Finn (aka Morgan Matson)

 

 

Release Date: May 5, 2015

I really enjoyed the first book, Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend and am excited to continue the trilogy! Also it's really Morgan Matson so DUH!

 

9. November Nine by Colleen Hoover

 

No cover :( But it's Colleen Hoover so of course this is on the list!! It releases on November 9, 2015 - how fitting!

 

10. Winter by Marissa Meyer

 

 

Release Date: November 24, 2015

I just can't wait!!! This needs to be out already!? I also cannot wait to see the cover, I know it's going to be gorgeous! My prediction is that the red will be an apple somehow!!

 

 

***************

 

And if Nicholas Sparks publishes a new book my year will be made! I haven't heard anything though! I'd also love something from Rainbow Rowell, Morgan Matson (besides her one under Katie Finn), and Stephanie Perkins!! I'm excited to see what the year brings!!

 

What 2015 releases are you most excited for?!

Top Ten Tuesday: Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 

 where mostly bookish topics are picked - and you show your top ten!

 

This week's topic is... 10 books you want to read this winter!! I always love making season TBR's but I usually fail at them so we will see how this goes! I only had 5 books on my fall TBR and they are all still unread!! Actually a couple I tried to read (got more than 100 pages in) and DNF'd :/ The other 3 I attempted so I mean that totally counts for something!! Brownie Points for Effort!! :D I always like to see how I do so here goes....

 

1. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

 

 

 

- So Winter officially starts December 21 and I plan to reread my favorite in December around Christmastime so I'm putting this one on their because I know I'll at least read one!! I'm not sure when exactly I'll read this whether it will be before Winter officially starts or not, but nonetheless it's on the list! December marks the beginning of winter for me anyway....

 

2. Let it Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson

 

 

- See explanation above! I will be reading this next month around Christmas :) (Hopefully, this isn't set in stone or anything...)

 

3. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

 

 

- Okay so I started reading this in August and still have 550 pages to go and I don't see myself finishing it for the year but I making it a goal to finish it by the end of winter!! I mean perfect book to read in the winter anyway with the whole "winter is coming" tagline and everything....

 

4. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

 

- I started this book I don't even know how many times and I just can't get past the beginning! But I heard it's a bit of struggle in the beginning and you just got to push past and then it will be amazing! So I just need to do it, and WWII historical fiction is a good fit to read in the winter! I can do it!!!

 

5. Gilded Ashes by Rosamund Hodge

 

 

 

- This is a novella that I included because it's good for the winter, a fantasy Cinderella retelling and it's short so I can maybe accomplish reading it!!

 

6. The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski

 

 

- I need some romance for Winter!!! And I heard this one is a good one and involves a road trip so I'm there! It also seems like a bit of a darker NA (rather than light and fluffy) so again good for winter!

 

7. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

 

 

- This is the prequel to the Lunar Chronicles about Queen Levana that releases on January 27 so I feel like this is a shoe in for me to read because the Lunar Chronicles is one of my fave series!! I'm still a little bitter that we have to wait a year for Winter when I was expecting it to come out in February like the other ones but what can you do... I'm still looking forward to this one! (Side note, I really don't like this cover and that's so sad because the covers of this series are GORGEOUS!)

 

8. Confess by Colleen Hoover

 

 

 

- I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE!! It release March 10 so it still makes it for winter!! Can I have this now please?!? Hyperventilating here people!!!

 

9. Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarynn Fisher

- I mean, COLLEEN HOOVER. Of course I'm reading this!! It sounds really cool too - it releases January 27!

 

 

 

10. I Was Here by Gayle Forman

 

 

- Another January 27th release! I've read both of her duologies this year, Just One Day and If I Stay and enjoy her writing so will continue reading her work! This one sounds good and a bit depressing, perfect for winter....

 

*******************************

 

Man, looking at this list - I'm reading a lot of heartbreaking and dark books for the winter, I'm going to be even more depressed than I should be. What am I doing to myself? Maybe I should read some light and fluffy books to brighten up my mood a little!! We'll see how good I stick to my TBR!!

 

Are you planning on reading any particular books this winter?!!? Any new Winter releases you are excited for?? Read any or excited for the ones I've mentioned?
