Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for a Top Ten Tuesday post! This week’s topic is a freebie, which means it’s up to us to choose, and I chose to make a list on 10 books that I can’t wait to read that are being released in 2016 (this upcoming year). 2015 is almost ending, so I thought it would be a fitting topic! The main list is comprised of books I’m looking forward to that already has its cover, title and release date revealed, but I also couldn’t help but add a bunch of honourable mentions (mostly sequels and books that have yet to have their publishing details revealed). 😉 So, let’s get to it! In no particular order, as usual:
1. The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
The third and final book in the Winner’s Curse trilogy will be released March 1st 2016, and I can’t wait! Although I’m kind of sad to see it end, I’m sure it will be great. Though I suppose it would be safer to lower my expectations before I read it! Just in case. 😉
2. When We Collided by Emery Lord
Okay, first of all look at that cover!! Loving it. And after reading and enjoying Emery Lord’s The Start of Me and You, I’m looking forward to reading another one of her cute stories! This book releases April 5th 2016.
3. Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira
If you haven’t heard about this book, I urge you to go over to its Goodreads page and check out what it’s about! Basically a bookworm’s perfect story, in my opinion. This book releases on January 12th 2016, and I can’t wait!
4. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I have yet to read any books by Susan Dennard, but I’m looking forward to this release! It seems like an awesome story and I can’t wait for it’s release date, January 5th 2016.
5. Beyond the Red by Ava Jae
This book releases on March 1st 2016, and it seems really interesting! I haven’t heard of this author before (I believe this will be her debut novel) and I’ll be looking forward to see how it is.
6. The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins
Again, this seems like an awesome read, so I can’t wait for this one! It releases on March 8th 2016. I’ve also read Wendy Higgins’ Sweet trilogy so I have high hopes for this one!
7. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
The sequel to Red Queen will be releasing on February 9th 2016, and I’m intrigued to see what it will be like! I enjoyed Red Queen, although I had some issues with it, and I’m highly anticipating the release of Glass Sword! Not to mention I also love the cover. 🙂
9. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
This book will be the first in a series, and other than the fact that I love the cover (as if that’s anything new) I also really like the idea of it. And have any of you read The Darkest Minds?! Alexandra Bracken is a great author. 🙂 Passenger releases on January 5th 2016 and I will most assuredly be keeping my eyes on this one!
10. The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry
Again, this cover is stunning! These book cover designers sure know what they’re doing. Anyway, this book releases on January 26th 2016, and I can’t wait to read this seemingly-emotional and cute story.
Honorable mentions (AKA the books that do not yet have a planned release date, cover or title, but that must be mentioned on this list nonetheless):
- Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
I love Cassandra Clare’s books, and I just can’t wait to dive into the world of Shadowhunters once again with this brand-new series! This book will be releasing on March 8th 2016.
- The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
The sequel to The Wrath and the Dawn has me super excited! After the ending in TWATD, I must. Know. More. Although we don’t yet have a cover for it, we do know it’s planned release date; May 3rd 2016. Can’t wait!
- A Court of Thorns and Roses #2 & Throne of Glass #5 by Sarah J. Maas
We know that the sequel to ACOTAR will be released on May 3rd 2016 (well, according to Goodreads), while the fifth book in the Throne of Glass series will be released sometime in 2016. Both of these books have yet to reveal their covers and their titles.
- Snow Like Ashes #3 by Sara Raasch
The third book in the Snow Like Ashes trilogy has no name, cover or planned release date. Gonna have to keep eyes peeled for this one! Although I understand the lack of details, since its predecosser, the second book in the series, Ice Like Fire, hasn’t even been released yet!
‘Untitled’ is going to be the first in a series, and clearly still has a lot of work left! We don’t know the title or cover, and all we know about its release date is that it will be released fall 2016. As for Heartless, we know it will be released November 8th 2016, but we have yet to see the cover.
- Warrior Witch by Danielle Jensen
The third in the Malediction Trilogy, this book will be releasing May 3rd 2016. (If you haven’t read this series yet, I highly recommend you do!)
There are so many other books I’d love to name right now, but then I’d end up making a Top 15 or 20 list. 😉 So that’s it for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! What topic did you do? Feel free to link it below. What 2016 books are you looking forward to?
Enjoy your Tuesday! (Even though here in North America it’s basically over…)
