Top 10 Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016

So, I know I’ve already written a 2016 Debut Books post AND a post about 2016 books from authors we love, but there are probably some books I missed, so here we goooooooo….

Top 10 Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016

2016 anticpated ya books


1. Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira. January 12 – What I’m hoping from this book is fun YA book references without being TOO self-referential. I love the concept, though, that a girl who loves to read lives out a book-like plot in her own life.

2. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. February 9- One of my most anticipated sequels of 2016.

3. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine. February 16 – I love that this is a loose retelling of Snow White that has a blurb from Maria V. Snyder so…yeah. I need to read it.

4. Rebel Bully Geek Pariah by Erin Jade Lange. February 16 – This had me at “The Breakfast Club.” There are a few multiple-perspective high school type books coming out this year, and I really like the looks of this one.

5. A Gathering of Shadows by Victoria Aveyard. February 23- This is one of the books I’m most excited about! I fell in love with A Darker Shade of Magic last year and hope I can get my paws on this book soon!

6. The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski. March 29 – This is it. The final book in the series. I can barely stand the waiting!

7. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro. March 1 – I’m in the mood for a Veronica Mars type book, and I think this one will fit the bill.

8. The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows. April 5 – Another sequel I cannot wait to read. This had a super suspenseful cliffhanger and I’m DYING.

9. Love, Lies & Spies by Cindy Anstey. April 19 – This sounds like an amazing historical fiction involving romance and spies. Sign me up!

10. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. May 3 – I am SO pumped for this book. It involves Indian mythology and intrigue and MAGIC.

    I’m also really excited about Glass Sword. You have a typo in your list, A Gathering of Shadows is by Victoria Schwab not Aveyard. :)

    Great list! I haven’t heard of some of the authors mentioned but they all sound interesting. Will probably add some to by to-read list. Thanks again! ChatEbooks recently posted: https://www.chatebooks.com/blog-Books-to-Read-in-2016-7-Titles-To-Add-To-Your-Reading-List
