Posted December 28, 2015 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Top Ten Tuesday, Weekly Features/Memes / 32 Comments

TTTcustombannerTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is looking ahead to my most coveted releases of within the first 6 months of 2016. I love TTT topics like this because I gather so many ideas (and add so much to my TBR!) from reading what others are excited about! In order of release month, here are my most anticipated reads being released in the first half of 2016!

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken- January

PassengerI cannot even with how excited I am for this one. Max pre-ordered it for me for my birthday next week, so I happily know it’s coming my way!

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard- January

truthwitchI am lucky enough to know that Max ALSO preordered this for my birthday next week, so I’m going to be set with awesome reads for January!

Remembrance by Meg Cabot- February

remembranceIf there’s one that I’m excited about the most, it’s this one. I was so happy with how Royal Wedding came out that I can’t wait for the adult installment in the Mediator series!

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare- March

Lady MidnightI will read anything that Cassandra Clare writes about Shadowhunters. Also, that cover.

The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski- March

winners kissI admit this book is primarily making it on here because it has been announced that they WILL be keeping this cover for the hardback release. #priorities

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater- April

the raven kingI still have to read Blue Lily, Lily Blue, but I already know this one is going to be fantastic, and again, that cover.

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead- April

the glittering courtPut glitter in the title and I am ALL over it. Also, I really need to read something by Richelle Mead!

The Crown by Kiera Cass- May

thecrownI’m surprised to admit that I adored The Heir much more than I anticipated. I really want to know who Eadlyn will pick!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas- May

ACOMAF TemporaryOk I lied, THIS is the book I am most excited for for 2016. I NEED MORE TAMLIN IN MY LIFE.

Summer Days and Summer Nights, edited by Stephanie Perkins- June

  1. I’m so looking forward to Remembrance! I’m also really curious about Passenger now that I’ve seen SO many positive reviews for it. Hopefully it will live up to the hype!

  2. How in hell did I not hear about The Glittering Court until today?? I LOVE Richelle Mead’s novels, and this one sounds super-good. Also, I totally agree with you about glitter. The Raven King is my most awaited release for 2016, without doubt. Is it too much to ask for ALL OF THEM to get their happily ever afters? I’m really, really excited for Summer Days and Summer Nights! Like you, I really enjoyed My True Love Gave to Me, and I’m hoping this will be an even better anthology.
    Wonderful picks! πŸ™‚

    • I definitely feel like I haven’t seen the Glittering Court hyped up very much, I just happened across it a while ago and the name has stuck with me ever since! I haven’t read anything by Richelle Mead yet although I own two of her books (Soundless and the first Vampire Academy novel) but this one looks right up my alley! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I’m so happy to see Passenger, Truthwitch & A Court of Mist and Fury on this list! I read and loved the first two (and I’m planning to reread Truthwitch this week!), and I’m super excited for the next installment of the ACOTAR series πŸ™‚

  4. I’m a little apprehensive about Truthwitch. I’ve heard really good things and not so good things. I am curious enough that I want to check it out for myself though. Yes, The Winner’s Kiss will have the original cover, I could not be more happy. Hope you have a happy New Year!

    • I feel like Truthwitch will be hit or miss for me too. I either tend to really get into or really dislike high fantasy, but witches are a supernatural creature that I really love reading about. Have a happy and wonderful New Year as well, Alicia!

  5. Your first 5 are definitely on my top TBR list! I already thought Truthwitch was out given the hype on twitter but I’m really curious to see it!
    I was lucky enough to read Passenger early and I really enjoyed it so you’ll have some great reading early next year πŸ˜‰

  6. There are just so many exciting new books coming out next year, I can’t handle it! A Court of Mist and Fury and The Raven King are definitely my most anticipated releases. YES to more Tamlin! πŸ˜€ Ahh, and The Winner’s Kiss – I can’t wait for that one either. I need all of these in my hands right now!! Great list, Cristina!

    • I’m so glad they are releasing The Winner’s Kiss in the original cover, as I probably wouldn’t have invested in the hardback had it not matched my preexisting covers (I’m OCD like that). However, it is one I’m really anticipating as the second book ended on SUCH a cliffhanger! Thanks for stopping by, Karin πŸ™‚
