2016 is all ready set to be a brilliant year for book releases and there are already nine books that are on my reading radar and that I’m very excited about picking up and reading. I’m only anticipating books that are either standalones or part of a series that I’ve read all of the current books in – A Court of Mist and Fury, for example, by Sarah J Maas is being released but as I haven’t yet read the first book in the series, I don’t know whether I’m anticipating it or not. Some of these books don’t even have a title yet, but I’m already eagerly anticipating their releases so, let’s get to the list!
Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J Maas
Obviously, I’m anticipating the next book in the Throne of Glass series but the book doesn’t have a cover yet, so the details I can give you are fairly limited. But I know that I’m going to love this book, because Sarah J Maas is an incredible writer and she can create incredible worlds and characters. This one might just be at the top of my list, but there are also some other exciting books too.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: November 8th
Marissa Meyer is one of my favourite authors and I’m going to anticipate anything that she puts out into the world – as you’ll see in the list. This book sounds super interesting, as it is a Alice in Wonderland re-telling about the Queen of Hearts. Two things that I know about Marissa Meyer are that she is amazing at writing re-tellings and she is also amazing about crafting complex, intriguing villains for her stories, so this one has me super pumped.
The Gatlon School for Vigilantes (The Gatlon School for Vigilantes #1) by Marissa Meyer
As you can see, Marissa Meyer has a busy year ahead of her, and this book basically has one line of synopsis, with no cover or release date. All I know that it’s about super heroes, and as a massive Marvel fan this makes me very excited. Marissa Meyer, one of my new favourite authors, is writing about super heroes. That has me sold all ready!
Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 2nd
Nope, I was wrong, this is most anticipated book of the year. This is basically a bind up of novellas following The Lunar Chronicles, again written by Marissa Meyer. Yes, I’m very excited about seeing how my favourite characters got to where they are but the main thing I’m excited about is the final story – it is an epilogue! And I love epilogues, because they show my favourite characters chilling out and getting all cosy and romantic and this one looks to be no different as it follows a ‘wedding’. And, whose wedding could that be?!
Untitled by Stephanie Perkins
Stephanie Perkins, author of my favourite book of all time Anna and the French Kiss, is coming out with a new book. And I am very excited. It sounds to be nothing like Anna, as it is a thriller/horror story but I don’t care – it’s written by Stephanie Perkins so I know that I’m going to love it.
Summer Days & Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins (Editor)
Release Date: June 14th
This book is very much in the vein of My True Love Gave To Me, which I read a little while ago and really enjoyed. Now we’re getting basically the same thing – but set in the summer, with a whole new batch of authors and I am incredibly excited. Some of the authors include: Stephanie Perkins (obviously), Leigh Bardugo, Nina Lacour, Libba Bray and Cassandra Clare! I can’t wait!
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Release Date: May 3rd
I love everything that Morgan Matson writes and this summer she’s bringing out a new book! Yay! This one is set to follow Andie, a Politician’s daughter and a big scandal. That’s basically all I know. But I love contemporary books and romances and Morgan Matson and political scandals so this book is all ready set to become one of my favourites when I read it.
