January 12: Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn’t.

This year, for sure! (Probably.)

none of the above

1. None of the Above; I.W. Gregorio. I spotted this on a blog, and it seemed interesting. The world isn’t so binary as it might seem.

good bad smug

2. The Good, the Bad, the Smug; Tom Holt. Holt does these strange, rambling adventures, with hapless main characters and weird science.

fifth season

3. The Fifth Season; N.K. Jemisin. A war fighting for basic resources, and one woman determined to save her daughter–it sounds like it could be rough, but the reviews are really good.


4. Illuminae; Amie Kaufman. I basically saw this one on so many blogs I gave in. War, plague, rogue A.I.s, romance gone bad–it should be an adventure.

air awakens

5. Air Awakens; Elise Kova. Another pretty cover, but what really sold me were the words “library apprentice.” Bookish people make great heroes.

unbeatable squirrel

6. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl; Ryan North & Erica Henderson. How could you resist this premise? Squirrel powered superhero!

written stars

7. Written in the Stars; Aisha Saeed. Isn’t it pretty?

shattered court

8. The Shattered Court; M.J. Scott. I enjoyed her other series, and this one looks to have magic aplenty.

long walk to valhalla

9. Long Walk to Valhalla; Adam Scott. Mostly it’s the title, but the concept–a Valkyrie walking someone about to die through their life–caught my attention, too.

futuristic violence

10. Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits; David Wong. I’ve read John Dies at the End and This Book is Full of Spiders, and enjoyed both, so I’m willing to take a chance on this one. Superhuman villains versus a woman with a cat. Sounds fun, right?

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

  1. NONE OF THE ABOVE. YES. And Illuminae! Also, I don’t have it on my list, but I really want to read Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits as well. I loved David Wong’s other books. My TTT!

    • I may have found Illuminae from one of your previous lists–I found it on several bloggers’ lists. 🙂
      David Wong makes some strange reads, but I like that in a book.

  2. We share one! Good, Bad, and Smug (if its the one I”m thinking of, which it looks like it is..) really isn’t worth picking up. My TTT.

  3. I really want to read None of the Above, too! Great list 🙂

    ILLUMINAE seems to be today’s most mentioned book, I’ve seen it on so many lists already! 😀

    But you can definitely look forward to it, it was one of my top 3 books in 2015 and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series! 🙂

  5. Cassie-la says:

    Oooh, a new David Wong book. =) Also, Air Awakens sounds intriguing, I’ll have to look into it more!
