Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten New Releases I Can’t Wait to Read in 2016


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature run by the folks at The Broke and the Bookish. With 2016 only days away, this week is all about the most anticipated books being released next year. I’m rather hopeless at staying up to date with what’s coming out when, but let’s see how this goes. I’m a little late to the party this week, mostly because I have no idea what day it is, but it’s probably still Tuesday somewhere in the world.

1. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book forever. Technically, it’s been since October 2014, but that’s still a pretty long time. I love the cover, I’m completely terrified of what’s to come, and I’m ready to have my soul smashed into a thousand little pieces.

2. The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig 

I actually first heard about this book when I was doing my 2015 book survey and there was a question about debut novels. But the premise sounds super cool, and different, and I’m in love with the title big time.

3. One Would Think the Deep by Claire Zorn

I’m yet to read The Protected and I liked-but-not-loved The Sky So Heavy but I’m super keen to read this one. Another really cool cover, and Iike the sound of the story. Plus it’s set the year I was born, which is kind of fun.

4. Shield by Rachael Craw

No cover for this one yet, nor release date aside from that it’s being published in 2016. Technically the original prompt for this is books being released in the first half of 2016, but it’s one of the books that I’m looking forward to the most for next year, and it might be released in the first half of the year. I hope so, anyway!

5. The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis

I’ve known for a while that Will Kostakis had a new book coming out at some point in the not-too-distant future, and it turns out that The Sidekicks is it. Another really cool cover, and if it’s as good as The First Third, it should be a treat to read.

6. Summer Skin by Kirsty Eagar

We’ve now reached the point where the books are “most anticipated as of two minutes ago when I found this book on Goodreads”. But this one looks really cool.

7. The Secret Science of Magic by Melissa Keil

Another one that we don’t have a cover or release date for, but I love Melissa Keil’s writing, so I’m definitely looking forward to this one.

8. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Since You’ve Been Gone was a lot of fun, so I’m quite optimistic about this one.

9. My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier

A quick departure from the abundance of contemporary on this list, My Sister Rosa looks creepy and psychological. Justine Larbelestier’s novels are always impressive, so I have high hopes for this one.

10. Wanderlost by Jen Malone

This one had me from the title and super pretty cover. The story sounds like it could be a lot of fun too. Plus, I’m planning on travelling around Europe myself (not on an oldies’ bus tour, though!), so that adds a little more appeal.

Any suggestions for books that I should keep an eye out for next year? Any books that you can’t wait to read? If you’ve taken part in TTT this week, feel free to link me to yours so I can find MORE books to get excited about!
