December 29: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016
There are so many books I’m looking forward to getting my hands on in early 2016, that it was difficult narrowing my list down to just ten, but I managed to. Just. (Note: the release dates are UK based, I know a number have earlier US release dates).
1. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (January 5)
I’ve yet to read The Darkest Minds series, but this book sounds amazing so I want it already.
2. This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp (January 5)
This book sounds incredibly harrowing (about a school shooting) but unfortunately seems very relevant in the present day.
3. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (January 14)
Fantasy. Sarah J. Maas’ best friend. I’m sold.
4. Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell (February 2)
Peter Pan/Captain Hook retelling. Gimme.
5. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard (February 9)
Despite not having yet read Red Queen (that will be rectified), I already need the sequel in my hands.
6. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine (February 16)
At the moment I’m addicted to everything fairytale, and this evil re-telling sounds devine.
7. A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (March 1)
I’m incredibly excited about reading this modern-day setting of Sherlock Holmes’, starring his own granddaughter.
8. Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan (March 1)
This is another YA fantasy novel, and it seems I’m addicted to them.
9. The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh (May 3)
Another book I’ve yet to read the first in the series of, but I’ve heard so many amazing things about it, I think I might just have to marathon them later in the year.
10. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (May 3)
This is absolutely my most anticipated release for the first six months of 2016, and I have to wait five whole months! Life’s not fair.
