Top Ten Tuesday #5: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I am hoping to participate more frequently in 2016.

I am looking forward to the following release next year. They’re ordered by my level of excitement, and not by release date.

The Crown (The Selection #5) by Kiera Cass

I love this series so much, and unlike most people, I liked Eadlyn a lot more than I liked America. I can’t wait to read about the conclusion of her Selection.

Release Date: May 3, 2016

The Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard

I know Red Queen has gotten mixed reviews since it’s so similar to many other dystopian YA books, but I loved it. I am early anticipating the second book in this series.

Release Date: February 9, 2016

The Long Game (The Fixer #2) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Clearing I am a series lover. Jennifer Lynn Barnes is so amazing. I really enjoyed The Fixer, so I am very much looking forward to reading the next book in the suspense/crime series.

Release Date: June 7, 2016

Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #0.5, 0.6, 1.5, 3.1, 3.6) by Marissa Meyer

The Lunar Chronicles is my second favorite series, after Harry Potter. I have read a few of these short stories already from Meyer’s website, but I still need to get my hands on this book ASAP after it releases because I need to read about the wedding. I don’t even care who’s it is!

Release Date: February 2, 2016

OK that’s it for series.

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

I honestly haven’t even read what this book is about. I love Matson so much that it doesn’t matter. Her other books have been so wonderful. I am sure this one will be too.

Release Date: May 3, 2016

In Real Life by Jessica Love

I have heard great things about this book, and I am approved to read it on NetGalley. I’m really looking forward to it. It’s on my phone already, but I’m waiting until it’s a little closer to the release date before I read it. I’m not far enough ahead on my blogging to read it early.

Release Date: March 1, 2016

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

This book is another one that I keep hearing about. And I love the cover! I really want to read it when it comes out next year.

Release Date: April 15, 2016

Just My Luck by Cammie McGovern

I love Cammie McGovern, so again I don’t know what this book will be about, but I want to read it anyway. I really enjoy her writing and characters, so I know I’ll love it.

Release Date: February 23, 2016

The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin

Another adorable cover! I’ve heard good things about this book.

Release Date: January 26, 2016

The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth

The only adult fiction book on my list is another that I’ve been approved for on NetGalley. This story sounds really interesting, and I love the cover. I am a sucker for good covers.

Release Date: January 19, 2016

Yikes! I need to get to this one soon.

What’s on your list for 2016? Do you like to read new releases right away? Or do you read more back list books?

  1. I have STARS ABOVE on my list today as well. I'm a huge Lunar Chronicles fan — even though I haven't gotten to FAIREST or WINTER yet. I will in 2016, for sure.

    Happy New Year!
