This Week's Topic
Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016

For the sake of being fair, I am not including books I have already read or have eArcs for :)

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

The first in this series was absolutely amazing so I can barely wait for this - it comes out the day after my birthday too. It can't be a coincidence... must be fate ;D 

The Unexpected Everything

I think contemporary books are overlooked on this list and this is one of my best expected contemps of next year - also day after my birthday :D

Rebel of the Sands (Rebel of the Sands, #1)

I love books in settings like this and I've heard good things from the lucky people that have had the change to review it and that cover is verrrrr gorgeous...

Bookishly Ever After (Ever After, #1)

Another cute looking contemp read - a girl taking happy ever after advice from books - what an awesome concept :D

The Star-Touched Queen

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshari Choksi (May 3rd 2016)

This looks like such a lush, gorgeous fantasy (I love lush, gorgeous fantasies). Definitely one on the top of my wishlist for the year.

After the Woods

Oh wow this sounds so interesting and amazing and totally like a read for me! Definitely adding it onto my wishlist.

The Heir and the Spare

Mixed reviews out for this one but for me it looks like a cute read it the vein of What a Girl Wants and the Princess Diaries.

The May Queen Murders

I love spooky, mysterious premises like this one and that cover just draws me in even more - May is going to be an amazing month! 

Not at all keen about that cover, but the plot sounds so amazingly fun (maybe like Rockaholic by C.J. Skuse) that I can't wait to give it a go. 

Heir to the Sky

So I was actually a little let down with Sun's Ink, but this sounds so amazing that I could not leave it off the list!

So what is on your Top Ten Tuesday? Link it up in the comments and I'll be by to check it out!


  1. omg so many pretty covers! Great picks. :)

  2. The May Queen Murders definitely caught my eye! Looking it up on Goodreads now :D

    I'm also super excited for Bookishly Ever After, it sounds so amazing!

  3. You have a few I haven't heard of yet that sound great! I think it's time for some Goodreads adds.

  4. Great list! Kill the Boy Band sounds so funny!

    The cover of Rebel of the Sands looks stunning! I will admit that was one of the reasons why I put that one on my list ;)

  5. I would also like to read The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. I LOVED her book Second Chance Summer. It's one of my favorite reads of 2015! :) I also would like to read Kill The Boy Band, and The May Queen Murders. They sound like they are going to be good reads!
    Great Top Ten!

    My TTT! :D

  6. I can't wait for the Unexpected Everything too! I have yet to read a Morgan Matson book but I have heard such great things. I actually have a copy of The Heir and the Spare for a blog tour so I'm hoping to read it soon. :b

  9. I completely forgot about Morgan Matson's new book! I cannot wait for it, and I'm glad to see that you are excited for it too! :)

  10. I'm looking forward to a lot of these too, especially ACoMaF and Rebel of the Sands! And I had never heard of Heir to Sky before, but it sounds brilliant! I've added it to my Goodreads TBR.

  11. The May Queen Murders has been on my radar since October. I can't wait for its release because any time is a good time for a creepy read. Happy New Year!

  12. Great picks! Kill the Boy Band sounds funny. :)
