Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Ten Most Anticipated Releases For 2016 (2nd half)
This post is going to be short and sweet since I haven’t obviously read any of these books yet lol. They do sound really interesting and I am suitably hyped for their release.
1. Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter
To be honest, the cover alone is enough to interest me but the fact that it is a retelling and a lesser known one at that really makes me excited for this!
2. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Marissa Meyer. Enough said! Seriously though, the Lunar Chronicles series is just so good I have total faith that Heatless will be equally as good if not better!
3. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I liked the first book in the Grisha series (haven’t read the rest yet) but this series appeals to me more because it is about thieves and ruffians. I love a good heist book!
4. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
This looks like a really different sort of read and I have heard good things about Laini Taylor so sign me up! This book has been getting a fair amount of hype which has gotten me buzzed to read this!
5. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge
Another retelling so I am already excited. There isn’t a huge amount of Romeo and Juliet retellings out there so I will be interested to see if this one can come anywhere near the original.
6. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I’m not too sure what this will be like but the cover is to die for! The story does sound interesting so I am definitely going to make time for this book.
7. A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess
Love the cover and the synopsis sounds really intriguing. Interest piqued! I haven’t heard all that much about it but the synopsis definitely looks intriguing.
8. Crystal Storms by Morgan Rhodes
I love this series so much so of course I am excited for the latest book! Magneo forever! So excited that Magnus finally gets his own cover coz he’s my fave!
9. And I Darken by Kiersten White
Ooohh, this sounds super-dark and intense. I’m totally up for this! I really like the idea of a gender-swapped Vlad the Impaler!! This is definitely one to watch out for.
10. Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige
Snow White retelling – sounds really interesting so I will definitely be picking this up. I haven’t yet read any of this author so this book looks like the perfect place to start!
What books are you EXCITED for?
