June 14: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year
I cannot fathom how we are almost halfway through 2016 already, but somehow we are, so here is a list of the ten books that I am most anticipating being released over the remainder of the year – in date order (otherwise J.K. Rowling would hold positions #1 and #2!)
1. On The Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher (July 14)
I read Carrie’s debut non-fiction book and was unimpressed, but I’m holding out hope that her fiction debut is more entertaining.
2. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne (July 31)
I’m seeing the play on June 30 (and am actively avoiding spoilers until that date), but I can’t wait to hold the script in my hands.
3. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (August 30)
Despite not having read read An Ember in the Ashes, I’m looking forward to having the second book so I can read them back to back.
4. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (September 6)
The next book in the Throne of Glass series I have to read is Heir of Fire (#3), so I really need to catch up before #5 is released.
5. Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch (September 20)
Another series I’ve yet to begin, but I’ve heard such positive things about the Snow Like Ashes books (and I currently own the first two) that I’m excited to finally read them.
6. The Fever Code by James Dashner (September 27)
I’ve currently read up to The Scorch Trials, but I’m looking forward to exploring more of the world with the two prequels.
7. The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher (October 6)
When Tom announced the impending release of his debut novel I was so excited – I love him and his creative media in general, so I have high hopes for this.
8. The Midnight Star by Marie Lu (October 11)
I am (clearly) notoriously far behind on my series, as I haven’t even started The Young Elites trilogy, but at least upon release of this I’ll be able to marathon them.
9. Night School by Lee Child (November 7)
Despite only having currently read the first three Reacher novels, I have stockpiled almost the entire series, and #21 will be no different.
10. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling (November 19)
As JKR’s first screenplay, I’m looking forward to watching the movie (the day before the book is released) and then devouring the magic once again.
