"'What is this, the 1950's?' Annabelle adds. 'Girls belong in the kitchen and crap?'

'You'll just distract us,' Kraven sneers.

'Bite me.'

Kraven bites the air at her, and Annabelle's face opens with surprise. Then she socks him the chest and storms in the opposite direction." p 17

"We spill into the library, a small smile touches Charlie's mouth. I'm not sure why. There's enough dust in here to make Oklahoma farmers extremely nervous. Books clutter the shelves, floor to ceiling, but they aren't organized in any fashion. Some spines face in and others out. Some books teeter in big stacks out of reach, while smaller stacks litter the floor." p 24

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

 This week's topic is: Top Ten 2015 Releases I Meant To Get To But Didn't

*in no particular order
**please don't shame me for these!

1. THE RETURN by Jennifer L. Armentrout--I am SO ashamed to say I haven't read it yet, I don't know what happened! I think when I finally got my copy, I was struggling to read through review books and then I was likely trying to read books for signings...but once I know I have The Power, I will so be binging these two!
2. WICKED EVER AFTER by Delilah S. Dawson--we can basically call this post my shame face post! I loooved Delilah's Blud series and was ecstatic to here we'd see Criminy again...and yet...it's still unread!
3. THE CHESS QUEEN ENIGMA by Colleen Gleason--I think what threw me off here was I finally did not get an ARC in this series! Sob! I really love this one though! It's sooo good!

4. A WICKED THING by Rhiannon Thomas--despite the mixed reviews, I was very excited for this one! A Sleeping Beauty sequel of sorts?! Hell yes! I love fairy tales and their retellings and imagined sequels! ;)
5. ASH & BRAMBLE by Sarah Prineas--another one of mixed reviews, but one I was excited for! This one had a mish-mash of fairy tales going on, so I was super excited for it as well!
6. CRIMSON BOUND by Rosamund Hodge--a sort of Red Riding Hood retelling and another fairy tale that is escaping me at the moment! But since I loved Cruel Beauty, I was eager for this one!

7. FROZEN TIDES by Morgan Rhodes--I am totally in LOVE with this series, but yet come release day and near my birthday, I did not get around to reading this one yet! It saddens me...though I know the cliffhanger that's likely there will kill me and if I can lessen my pain by a month or two I know I will be grateful in the long run! 
8. SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo--so many amazing reviews and I have yet to read it! I am really trying to get this one up in my queue, but at the moment I am trying to get caught up and finish a few series first!
9. TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU by Claudia Gray--I loooved ATPOY and was dying to read this one, but have I? Based on this post I think you have your answer. :(

10. VELVET by Temple West--I love me a good vampire romance! There just aren't enough of them if you ask me! LOL! This one screamed my name telling me to buy buy buy and read it! Well, I bought it...
11. THE MASKED TRUTH by Kelley Armstrong--having any Kelley Armstrong book in my TBR pile this long just isn't done! Not sure what happened to me this year!


  1. The Warrior... gosh, I completely forgot about this series. This is a book I still need to read. Thanks for reminding me.

    Ten Thousand Skies Above You... yep, that ones still sitting on my shelf too. Hopefully we'll both find time to read it in 2016.

  2. You got me intrigued about The Warrior! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog :)

  3. Six of Crows YES!! Girl, read that one ASAP!!

    I also have Crimson Bound in my pile of books to read from last year, hopefully I'll get to it soon!

  4. Hi Jessica! Six of Crows was my favourite book of 2015! But I understand the series completion issue. I have so many to finish too!

    Hope you find some time to read these gorgeous books!
    Happy Reading
    Rachel @ Paein-and-Ms4Tune

  5. All new-to-me! Hope you get to enjoy them in 2016!

    Here's my Top Ten!

  6. The first teaser made me laugh.

    I ditched Ash & Bramble at about page 50. And I haven't gotten to that Kelley Armstrong either.

  7. velvet s on my list too. Ten thousand skies is good so good. just as good if not better than the first. Read it! I will be reading the masked truth soon. that one looks intense.

    Well there is another year to stack up your tbr list. Maybe you can fit these in too.

  8. I actually purchased the audio of Six of Crows meaning to get to it right away... and haven't. I need to... and soon! I, too, have heard only great things about it!

  9. Crimson Bound is on my TBR, though it wasn't on my list this week!
    My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/12/top-ten-tuesday-39/

  10. Oh, books, books all over the place! That's a beautiful image!
    Great teasers!

    Here's mine:

    Athina @ Between my Lines

  11. I also missed Wicked Ever After! I love Criminy !!!!
    Frozen Tides is on my list, I am in love with The Falling Kingdoms!
    And my current read is Six of Crows and I also love it!
    My TTT.

  12. Six of Crows is great. And I've heard good things about The Masked Truth and Frozen Tides (I'm hoping to start the Falling Kingdoms series this year). I just read Ten Thousand Skies Above You and it was really good. Great list!
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

  13. I NEED to read these Dante books! I am so behind!
    Thanks for sharing & Happy Reading!

    My Teaser Tuesday
    Punkie @Fluttering Hearts Reviews

  14. We only have 2 in common :D but that's good because I get to know about other great books I missed! Great list.

    Laura @ psilovethatbook

  15. I actually haven't read any of these yet either. I do have Six of Crows on my list too. I didn't know about Crimson Bound. Now I want to read that right now!

    Alexis @ Stay at Home Reader

  16. Oh so many books! How are we to read them all?! My TTT List, which overlaps yours above some.

  17. Oooh! You definitely need to read Crimson Bound ASAP! That was definitely one of my favorites! :D

    Here are my Top Ten!

  18. Your list just made me realize I left a lot of books off of my mental list for 2015. The only one I purposely skipped was JLA because I just started her books last year and I'm trying to catch up in general. Great list though! :D

    Mel @ Reviews In A Pinch

  19. Hi there, I haven't heard of any of these. I clearly won't run out of reading ideas any time soon :-)

  20. Hi there, I haven't heard of any of these. I clearly won't run out of reading ideas any time soon :-)

  21. A lot of these I haven't read yet. I actually read Crimson Bound in the last week of December, so I made it on that one! Hopefully we'll get to everything we missed soon.

    Christina @ Books & Prejudice

  22. I thought I was the only one that hadn't read six of crows yet!! I really need too. Crimson bound looks great too. Here's my TTT http://angelerin.blogspot.com/2016/01/top-ten-tuesday-top-twenty-2015.html?m=0

  23. The Maked Truth made my list too, but I hope to buy it soon.

    Here is My Top 10 Tuesday

  24. Trying to find a connection between the two teasers and the cover picture! Not making it. The book sounds quite interesting and I totally empathize with whoever owns that library. (Although, not the dust so much!) Anything to do with chess intrigues me, so I'm adding The Chess Queen Enigma to my TBR list. Here's my teaser for today: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-17E

  25. Gotta love the cover for The Chess Queen Emgima!! I may have to add this title to my ever growing reading wishlist. Happy reading to you in 2016!!

  26. I've never read anything by Victoria Scott but I really like the writing style I see in your teasers. The teaser on my adult blog this week comes from a thriller - The Eighth Circle by Sarah Cain. Happy reading!

  27. You must pick up The Return when you can! Adored that one so much! I really need to get back into the Dante Walker series and I need to pick up Crimson Bound as well. :)

  28. Ooh, I like feisty characters and some good ole sarcasm. LOL Sounds fun.

    My TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2016/01/12/teaser-tuesdays-142-descent/

  29. So I've read two of the books on your list. For me, Crimson Bound didn't do as well as Cruel Beauty, but who knows you may love it. :) The Masked Truth does great with it being a thriller. I hope you get to the books and enjoy them! :D

    Thank's for stopping by earlier!

  30. These all look fantastic! Ten Thousand Skies Above You looks very intriguing but that cover for Crimson Bound is gorgeous!

    My Teaser

    My TTT

  31. Six of Crows is on my TBR :) Hope you enjoy Wicked Ever After!

  32. I meant to get to The Warrior and didn't. Love the teasers though.

    My Teaser

  33. Six of Crows was on my list too, so don't feel too bad. I want to read The Masked Truth too, it sounds so good! I hope you get to read these sometime soon! Great teasers! That library sounds like my worst nightmare! Thanks for visiting my TTT! Happy reading!

  34. Oh, I forgot A Masked Truth on my own list! And I finally caught up with Gathering Darkness, so hopefully I'll get to Frozen Tides this year before the next book comes out :)

    ~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

  35. I really enjoyed The Masked Truth, although I didn't quite know how to rate it. It was almost two different stories. Very well done though, with two unreliable narrators leaving you to question everything.

    I need to read Ten Thousand Skies Above You soon. I loved the first one.

  36. You will be busy this year ;)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    My TTT:

  37. Ooooh I missed Crimson Bound and Ten Thousand Skies as well. Maybe this year!

    - Kritika @ Snowflakes & Spider Silk

  38. Highly recommend you try out Ten Thousand Skies Above You. All I will say is that it will make you want the third book even more!

  39. OMG you have to read The Return! JLA really delivers and Seth is awesome!
