Hello gentle reader,
2015 is coming to an end and it’s time to look ahead at the books I’m anticipating to read in early 2016.
This year I read 39 novels, 3 novellas, 4 unpublished manuscripts and I re-read 8 books. That’s basically a book a week, and my goal is to read as many books in 2016.
In my Waiting On Wednesday posts, I already mentioned YA books I’m eagerly waiting for: TRUTHWITCH by Susan Dennard, REVENGE AND THE WILD by Michelle Modesto, THE RAVEN KING by Maggie Stiefvater, OUTRUN THE MOON by Stacey Lee, FEAR THE DROWNING DEEP by Sarah Glenn Marsh, REBEL OF THE SANDS by Alwyn Hamilton, THE IMPOSTOR QUEEN by Sarah Fine, and THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS by Marieke Nijkamp.
Now let’s add a few books to this list:
Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan
YA High Fantasy
(expected publication: 19th January 2016 by HarperTeen)
Why I want to read it: A Fantasy world where literacy is a capital offense? Colour me intrigued.
The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
YA Historical Fantasy
(expected publication: 26th January 2016 by Viking Books for Young Readers)
Why I want to read it: “a Regency adventure starring a stylish and intrepid demon-hunter”? Yes, please.
Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers
(expected publication: 2nd February 2016 by HarperTeen)
Why I want to read it: “With shades of The Godfather and Romeo and Juliet, this fantasy is a story of love, lies, and the ultimate vengeance.” Assassins and revenge? I’m curious…
The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
(expected publication: 16th February 2016 by Greenwillow Books)
Why I want to read it: A time-traveling ship! Need I say more?
Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie
YA High Fantasy
(expected publication: 1st March 2016 by Katherine Tegen Books)
Why I want to read it: “a 17-year-old girl who is forced use her gift for feeling—and absorbing—the emotions of others to protect her nation’s emperor from would-be assassins.”
Tell The Wind And Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan
(expected publication: 5th April 2016 by Clarion Books)
Why I want to read it: New York! A city torn between two very different kinds of magic! Sarah Rees Brennan! I CAN’T WAIT.
What about you? Which books are you most looking forward to reading in 2016? Feel free to leave me a comment below!
I’m almost done with Sword and Verse now. It’s actually been a struggle for me, which makes me very sad since I love the idea of the book for sure. I am looking forward to Burning Glass and Assassin’s Heart.
Yes! I can’t wait to read ALL of these, but especially DARK DAYS CLUB and BURNING GLASS. 🙂
