Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016.
Organized by release month, here are the books I’ll be dying for in the first six months of 2016… some of which I already have on preorder!
1) All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders: A new sci-fi novel by one of my favorite writers and recappers at io9.
2) Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: About a WWII-era tragedy. Sounds amazing.
3) All the Winters After by Seré Prince Halverson: Fiction set in Alaska! I’m in.
4) Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs: The new Mercy Thompson book!!! I love this series so much.
5) The Steep and Thorny Way by Cat Winters: After reading three of her novels in 2015, I’ve officially moved Cat Winters onto my “must read no matter what” list of authors.
6) Fellside by M. R. Carey: I loved The Girl With All the Gifts. This new book sounds deliciously creepy.
7) Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld: The newest volume in The Austen Project is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, and for me, it’s a must!
8) The Fireman by Joe Hill. Yes. Just yes.
9) At the Edge of Summer by Jessica Brockmole: I loved the author’s previous novel, Letters From Skye!
10) Peace Talks by Jim Butcher: the 16th book in the always amazing Dresden Files series!
