December 1: Top Ten 2016 Debuts Novels I Am Looking Forward To
Debuts and I are two things that do not mesh well together. I am terrible at reading newly released books, by new authors – I’ll buy them alright, when they’re hot off the press and everyone is ranting and raving about them, but in all honesty there are very few 2016 debuts I’m excited for, hence this list is rather disjointed.
Debut author 2016 releases
1. This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
This novel sounds unbelievably harrowing, but in a culture where school shootings happen all too often, it has the potential to be incredibly powerful.
2. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
Sherlock Holmes’ great-great-granddaughter sleuthing in the modern day world? That sounds amazing to me!
3. Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira
A YA romance novel about people who love books? Yes please.
New-to-me-author 2016 releases
4. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
I’m absolutely obsessed with fairy tales, and this sounds dark and magical.
5. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
This novel has been receiving so much hype, and as Sarah J. Maas’ best friend, I’m hoping that Susan Dennard delivers an equally fabulous fantasy story.
6. Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan
Fantasy kingdom and royal family: winning combination.
7. Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell
My current favourite TV show is ‘Once Upon A Time’, so any re-telling starring any of my favourite fictional characters (in this case Peter Pan/Hook) has me hooked. Get it?!
2016 releases that are not debuts
8. Summer Days and Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins
I enjoyed the 2014 Christmas anthology, and I’m hoping these short stories will be even cuter.
9. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
It’s Morgan Matson, what else is there to say?!
10. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
This is my single most anticipated release of 2016, and I cannot wait to have my hands on it.
