Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To
Read But Didn’t Get To (But TOTALLY plan to):
1.) The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. I can’t believe I didn’t get to this book last year! I was jonesing for it as soon as I heard that it was a thing…But for some reason, I had the reading slump blues when it came out, and I never got to it…Or any other book for that matter! But this time around I REALLY am going to read it. I picked up a copy for my partner last year when I was doing the TBTBSanta, and I HAD to get myself a copy also…Duh! 😉 Anyway, I know I will for sure be reading it this year. I don’t know exactly when, but it’s going to happen! I can’t wait! 😀
2.) Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. I’ve had this book for a good while now, and I’ve been dying to read this ever since I head about it…I mean, just look at the cover! It’s so cute, and I LOVE WAFFLES!!! 😉 Anyway, this year I WILL READ THIS BOOK!!!!
3.) Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica. I didn’t even know that this book was a thing until I was looking around Half Price Books last month. As soon as I saw that it was by Mary Kubica, I snatched it up real quick! I LOVED reading her book The Good Girl last year, it wasn’t a 5 star book, but it was pretty close. Don’t You Cry sounds like it is going to be a good one…Hopefully I am right!
4.) The Square Root Of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood. I don’t even remember when I first came across this book, but I do remember falling in love with the cover right away. It is SO pretty! I LOVE IT! Hopefully the story matches the amazing cover! *Crosses Fingers*
5.) What’s A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne. I know I know, I haven’t even read the FIRST book of this little series, but I REALLY want to! I’ve had the first book, Am I Normal Yet? for a whole year, and I am still VERY interested in reading it. So give myself a kick in the ass, I went ahead and bought all of the rest of the books, so that I HAVE to read them!!!!! Can’t wait to get started. I’ve heard LOTS of good things! 🙂
6.) The Smell Of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time now, and I STILL haven’t picked up a copy…WTF IS WRONG WITH ME?! I’ve heard LOTS of good things about it, and I mean come on…LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!! I NEED IT IN MY LIFE!
7.) Pearl by Deirdre Riordan Hall. I really liked her book Sugar. I read it last year, and I fell in love with it. It wasn’t perfect, but it was well with the read. I barely found out that this book even existed! I need to start paying more attention. Anyway, hopefully this one is just as good if not better than her last book. It sounds like a great story.
8.) The Homecoming by Stacie Ramey. This another book I new NOTHING about until I came across it at Target of all places. HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BOOK?! I really enjoyed her debut book The Sister Pact, and when I read that this one is from the POV of Leah’s Boyfriend, I was like HELL YEAH! I NEED THIS NOW!!!! Anyway, hopefully it’s a good one! I usually don’t like to read from male POV’s, but hopefully this one is worth it! 😀
9.) The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas. I’ve really gotten into these types of thrillers over the past year, and this one looks like it’s going to be a good one. I’ve been wanting to read it for a while now, but I still need to pick up a copy! Hopefully I can get my hands on it soon!
10.) Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. I actually don’t even know much about this book, but I like the cover, and I’ve heard some good things about it, so I decided to add it to my list. Hopefully it is worth the money and the time!

I really enjoyed The Sun is Also a Star, I’m not going to give too much away but it’s a really good story.
YAY! I can’t wait! 😀
Tell Me Three Things was such a treat – I loved the audio book for this one! Happy reading!
I’m hoping to read The Sun Is Also A Star soon as well 🙂 Hope you’ll get to all of these this year!
Ahh I forgot to add Tell Me Three Things! I loved The Smell Of Other People’s Houses, hope you enjoy it too. My TTT

Great list. These sound like good books. The cover of Tell Me Three Things always makes me hungry. haha.
I really want to read Kubica – I’ve heard so many great things about her work. 🙂
I read The Smell of Other People’s Houses earlier this month! Definitely a good YA “coming of age” book about teens growing up in Alaska in the 70s. It is a very short read (240 pages I think?) which was my only criticism, I wanted MORE of the story. Hope you enjoy when you get around to it!
