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
Crenshaw / Katherine Applegate
Carry On / Rainbow Rowell
The Rest of Us Just Live Here / Patrick Ness
Dumplin’ / Julie Murphy
So, which 2015 releases passed you by this year? If you’ve read any of the titles I’ve missed, which ones do think I need to read, pronto? Let me know in the comments below!
