Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016

We’ve established that Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. As 2016 is right around the corner, it’s time to discuss some of our most anticipated books for the first half of the new year!


1. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

23174274Release Date: February 9th, 2016

I loved Red Queen, so obviously I am all in for the sequel! Also, there are some characters (well … one character) that have some serious explaining to do!

2. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

25400972Release Date: February 2016

I remember being really confused about A Darker Shade of Magic, because I had no idea it was a series and there were so many things left unanswered. Well, I guess this is how I’ll find out about those unknown components.

3. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

25494343Release Date: March 8th, 2016

THIS IS DEFINITELY MY MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE! I cannot wait to read another book in the Shadowhunter world and it’s a parabatai-sort-of-love-story too! Perfect!

4. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

17927395Release Date: May 3rd, 2016

Lucien is apparently getting a love interest of his own – YAY! And I am looking forward to some more time with Rhys, just because!


5. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected EverythingRelease Date: May 3rd, 2016

Morgan Matson has a new book? How could I not read it? It’s going to be great! But I might actually wait until the summer to read it, because I feel like her books are mostly perfect for that time of the year.

6. The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan

25708587Release Date: March 1st, 2016

It sounds really heartbreaking, but somehow I am often drawn to those books. Also, I think the cover looks gorgeous!

7. You Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour

27068617Release Date: June 6th, 2016


8. The Crown by Kiera Cass

26074181Release Date: May 3rd, 2016

I may have my problems with Eadlyn, but I WILL FINISH this series! I am not going to stop at the last book (although I am really, really hoping this is the final installment! Seriously, I am going to freak if it’s another hoax!)

9. Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard

25944381Release Date: January 6th, 2016

You may wonder why I chose another Victoria Aveyard book, but those are the companion novellas Queen Song and Steel Scars for Red Queen combined in one book. I really want to read it since I haven’t gotten to Queen Song yet.

10. The Yearbook Committee by Sarah Ayoub

26241526Release Date: March 1st, 2016

From what I gathered it’s a book with multiple POVs covering the topic of bullying. Somehow those stories always really get to me, so I’d like to read it and see if my suspicions are right that this is going to be an emotional ride. Also, I love the cover! I mean I love all the covers above, but this one is really pretty as well!


I think in the end I can say that it’s going to be another great year for books! If you want to know more about the books, just click on the covers and you’ll get to their respective Goodreads pages. What are the books you are looking forward to the most? Don’t hesitate to leave a link to your TTT so that I can check it out!

    • Me too! I also can’t wait for the Shadowhunters TV show, hoping to the higher angels that it’s going to be good. I am already majorly crushing on Matthew Daddario, so there’s at least that.


  1. OH YES. ONE character has some explaining to do in Glass Sword, I can’t miss that, haha! I’m so excited to read the new Morgan Matson book, and The Crown, too! 😀 I didn’t know about The Leaving Season, but that cover is so beautiful, and I think it’s a book I might add to my TBR :p

  2. Unfortunately Glass Sword was a disappointment to me. I ended up not caring about all of them except Shade and then that ending. (I think you know what I’m talking about). I literally gave up. But I still have to read ACOMAF and these are from 2016 and I only read Glass Sword and the novellas. I need to catch up.
