THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year
It is hard to believe we are in the second half of this year! I’m still writing 2015 on everything!
At least we have a whole bunch of awesomeness to look forward to, like a whole bundle of holidays, and a schedule of books coming. This week, Maryam and I discuss our top ten most wanted releases for the next six months of 2016.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Release Date: September 27, 2016
This is my all-time favorite novelist right here, and to hear that we are going back into her imagination is helping me hang on to my sanity. I seriously get so excited when I see this book, I can’t even stand it.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: September 27, 2016
I am a tad bit upset that this is only a duology, but I am sure that the final chapter in this epic Grisha-universe series is going to be outstanding. Plus, with the red-edged pages, I’m seriously counting down the days to this release.
Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick
Release Date: October 25, 2016
Marcus. Freaking. Sedgwick. Favorite male author, lover of Vikings, creator of all things to screw with the mind, and then that COVER. Yeah, I’m so thrilled I can’t stand it.
Into White by Randi Pink
Release Date: September 13, 2016
I really didn’t think anything of this book at first, but the more I read about the synopsis, the more I am really excited to read this novel! I’m thrilled to see how the author approached the cultural approach with the race swapping. This one looks so promising.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Release Date: September 20, 2016
I’ve been dying to read more from Blake since Anna Dressed in Blood, and the early reviews are getting me pumped. I have always loved this concept, and I am sure Blake is going to blow this out of the park.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: September 6, 2016
This is one book that I’m definitely super excited for! I cannot wait to see how Aelin progresses on with her journey, and of course I’ll be pretty much in love with anything that Sarah J. Maas writes!
The Midnight Star by Marie Lu
Release Date: October 11, 2016
UM I should probably admit that I have not read The Rose Society yet, BECAUSE I AM SCARED. That’s why I need this book to be released so that I can read both books back to back.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany
Release Date: July 31, 2016
HI MORE HARRY POTTER. ADULT HARRY POTTER. COOL AS HECK HERMIONE. Of course I am excited. Whether it’s written by J. K. Rowling or not, I will be sure to read this because, obsessive Ravenclaw Potterhead here.
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Release Date: October 18, 2016
I just want to meet AIDAN again, and get to know what’s inside his brain, and hold this amaaazing book in my hands and just revel in its awesomeness. I MEAN, WHY ISN’T IT OCTOBER ALREADY?!
A Million Worlds With You by Claudia Gray
Release Date: November 1, 2016
OMG OMG Okay so this is the series that left me in a mini heart attack and I was SO CRUSHED that the final book hasn’t come out yet, because I really wanted to know what happens next. AND THE ENDING IN THE PREV BOOK. OMG. HAHAH.
