Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Can’t-Wait Books for the 2nd Half of 2016

TTT summer

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 Second Half of 2016.

Organized by release month, here are the books I can’t wait to read between now and the end of 2016… emphasis on the now. I want them all NOW.


1) Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling: I have a feeling this will be on ALL the lists this week. I can’t wait to read it… although what I really want is to go see the production live in London! Sigh. I can dream, can’t I?

2) Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty: I loved both of the books that I’ve read by this author, and can’t wait for more.

    • I love the synopsis for that one! I’ve read Room (amazing, of course), and still have an unread copy of her most recent novel (Frog Music) — so I should probably read that one before picking up a new release. 🙂

  1. I have yet to read a Liane Moriarty book, although I did just pick up The Husband’s Secret so maybe I’ll get around to that soon. 🙂
    Oh man, Saga. YES. My library is making me nervous because they haven’t bought it yet. lol Eowyn’s new one made my list too. Snow Child was the best. Very excited for Yesternight. Fantastic list!

    • I’ve only read one of her books so far (Room), but the synopses for a few of her other books have really interested me, and I think I need to read them!
