Top Ten Tuesday -2015 Releases I Missed

Top Ten Tuesday is an original meme hosted by the awesome team at The Broke and The Bookish. 


This week’s TTT topic is all about the 2015 releases we never quite got around to reading. I’ve cheated a little bit and shared eight books that I read about on countless blogs throughout the year but never got my hands on.

As a librarian, keeping up to date on the latest book releases is part of my job. Knowing what’s available can help me better help my patrons find just the right books for them. I can usually keep fairly up-to-date with picture book releases, but I’ve only recently started working with school-aged children, which means getting up to speed on an entirely new genre of reading material. I’m also hopelessly behind on my teen reading list. Suffice it to say I’ve a lot of catching up to do, and although I’ve made a bit of a dent, the TBR pile keeps growing….

Here are just a few of the many 2015 releases I just never got around to reading.

The Bear Ate Your Sandwich / Julia Sarconne-Roach

The Sword of Summer / Rick Riordin

The Thing About Jellyfish / Ali Benjamin

Fish in a Tree / Lynda Mullaly Hunt

  1. The new Riordan book was on my list too, and I didn’t get to it. I’m hoping to read it here in 2016 early. I’ve heard so much about his previous books, but didn’t want to go back and read all those so I thought I’d start fresh with this one. 🙂


    • That sounds like a good plan. Also, the subject matter for this series sounds really interesting – Vikings and Norse mythology hasn’t been touched on all that much in middle years fiction, so it should be pretty interesting!
