Top 10 Tuesday: Looking Back

top ten tuesday banner

Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It combines what I love most in this world into one—lists, books, and blogging. It couldn’t be any better suited for me! This week’s topic is all about the books released in 2015 that you just didn’t get around to.

I’m actually going to focus on ANY book I wanted to read last year that I didn’t get to because the year of a book release isn’t very important to me — I just care about the book. Let’s get started!

F. Scott Fitzgerald
1. The Great Gatsby 
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I bought this in a used bookstore last year, but I always had other new books to read. This year I promise to read it!

2. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
But I finally own this, and I’m definitely reading it this year!

3. The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
I also bought this collection last year, but I haven’t had the time to devote to them that I would like. Hopefully 2016 is my, and Chaucer’s, year.

Every Last Word
4. Every Last Word by Tamara Stone
Understanding how one girl handles her OCD and how being introduced to a new way of life can change everything, “Every Last Word” has been on my list since I saw the cover on the shelves.

5. Treasure Island by Robert Stevenson
I started this book last spring and couldn’t get into it. I’m going to give it another shot this year!

We Were Liars

6. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Promising suspense, I know E. Lockhart won’t disappoint.

The Girl on the Train
7. Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
Another suspenseful journey, that I’m told simulates “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” I got this for Christmas (Thanks Mom & Dad), so I’m going to tackle it in 2016.

8. The Martian by Andy Weir
I always meant to pick this up at Barnes and Nobel, but for some reason never got around to it. I heard the movie was amazing, but I’d love to read the book first.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

9. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Honestly, this looks like a really fun, YA read that I could breeze through on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I definitely want to pick it up for one of those days. I’ve also heard amazing things about it!

10. Bossypants by Tina Fey
After reading, and loving, Amy Poehler’s book, I knew I would have to read Tina’s. I’m sure it’s just as amazing!

What’s on your list?

Happy reading,
Kimberly
