Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2015

Each week, The Broke and the Bookish host Top Ten Tuesday, a booking meme. This week, we’re discussing books that are due out in 2015 that we can’t wiat to read. And today, I got the news that I passed the retake of my written comps exam, so I’ll be taking the oral portion on Monday the 8th. With any luck (and, let’s be honest, a lot of effort), this time next week I’ll be ABD. So here are 10 books that are coming out in 2015, every one of them more fascinating as a prepare to write a dissertation about literature, culture, and creating American girlhood.

1. Toons in Toyland: The Story of Cartoon Character Merchandise, Tim Hollis

2. Girl in Dior, Annie Goetzinger.

3. Wonderwoman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics, 1941-1948, Noah Berlatsky.

4. Ersatz America: Hidden Traces, Graphic Texts, and the Mending of Democracy, Rebecca Mark.

5. The Cat, the Devil, the Last Escape: A Novel, Shirley and Rousseau and Pat J.J. Murphy.

6. The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl, Issa Rae.

7. For a Voice and the Vote: My Journey with the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, Lisa Anderson Todd.

8. Girl in a Band, Kim Gordon.

9. Russian Tattoo: A Memoir, Elena Gorokhova.

10. Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom: My Story of the Selma Voting Rights March, Lynda Blackmon Lowery.

Bonus:Β Trigger Warning, Neil Gaiman. More short fiction from Gaiman? Yes, yes, and yes. Thus far, his short fictions have been my favorites.

  1. Congratulations on passing the written comps! I know you will do your usual amazing job on the oral exam. Also looking forward to a new Gaiman, especially short stories.


  2. It took me a while between hearing about Gaiman to reading him, but now that I’ve started, I can’t get enough of his books. Looking forward to reading Trigger Warning, too.


    1. I started reading Gaiman’s work around the time I started graduate school, I think. I think I found him at just the right time in my life. I’d like to get to the Sandman series. I’ve read most of his other stuff, but there are so many of the Sandman books that I haven’t had time to give them all a read-through yet because of school, and I want to read them in sequence!
