Most Anticipated 2016 Releases

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic asks about the 2016 debuts we’re most looking forward to. As usual, I have no idea what debuts are forthcoming. Not a single one.** So instead, I’m using today’s topic to list out my most anticipated 2016 releases (non-debut). (Yes, I know there’s an upcoming topic where I can address this. However, I have something else blog-planned that day.) In order of my anticipation anxiety:

the raven king1. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater – Does this surprise anyone? It was my most anticipated released for 2015, too…then it was delayed, and delayed again…sigh.

2. Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson – Until Shadows of Self, this wasn’t high priority for me. Now I’m glad the wait will be short.

3. The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey – Loved the first in this series, can’t wait for the second!

4. Something New by Lucy Knisley – More Knisley? Yes, please!

DROPOFNIGHT5. A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann – I first heard of this one in 2013 and have been waiting (through multiple delays) ever since!!

6. The Hunt by Megan Shepherd – see description of #3 above

7. Calamity by Brandon Sanderson – I hope the end of this trilogy is brilliant.

8. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – I hear this series will just be a duology, so hopefully this wraps up well!

Other possibilities with 2016 listed as tentative release year on GoodReads:

  • the second Goldseer book by Rae Carson
  • the second Magonia book by Maria Dahvana Headley
  • the next Lockwood & Co book by Jonathan Stroud

Also, this isn’t actually listed, anywhere, but can we please, please, please have more Tana French soon??

**Oh! I just realized, I do know a 2016 debut after all: Dreamology by Lucy Keating. I have no idea where I heard about this book, and it’s not in my most anticipated 2016 books (on a to-investigate list instead), but hey, I know one this year! That’s highly unusual for me, haha.


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
