Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly listed hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week top is 2016 “debut” novels, but I’m going to ignore the debut part of that….so here are the top ten books I’m looking forward to in 2016!
1) A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
The sequel to A Darker Shade of Magic. I’ve read a small portion that she’s put out, and it’s fabulous. And again the cover is gorgeous AGAIN:
BLACK LONDON IS BACK. WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN?! Eeeeeeee. If you haven’t figured it out, A Darker Shade of Magic is probably the best book I read this year.
2) Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
So I haven’t posted my review for book one, The Red Queen yet, but it was definitely a good one. I enjoyed it immensely, and I like that the cover theme is similar to the first book (and no teen model in a fancy dress. I’m looking at you, The Selection series. And speaking of….
3) The Crown by Kiera Cass
I’m going to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of this series, and I’m even less of a fan of the author. It should have ended at book 3. But this is apparently the last one, and dammit, I’m all about finishing series. And I kind of just want to know who she ends up with. But if it doesn’t end with this one, then I’m done. No True Blood series for me. Look, these books are easy and light to read. But mostly, I’m ready for them to be done.
4) Remembrance by Meg Cabot
There is going to be a book 7 of The Mediator series?! What the hell?! I’m game for this! I’ll be rereading the series in either January or February, because it’s been a few years (re: 2009) since I read the other 6 books. Unless someone has a lengthy synopsis for the first 6? But seriously, I loved this series.
5) The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
Okay, you can’t judge a book, but the cover, but this cover is so pretty! I’ve seen some ARC reviews that seem positive, plus it’s a fairy tale re-telling. I’m game. But seriously, LOOK AT THIS COVER:
6) Heartless by Marissa Meyer
I love that YA is big in fairy tale re-telling. This is an Alice in Wonderland, Queen of Hearts background story. I haven’t read anything by Marissa Meyer yet, but I respect her work and it’s on my forever TBR list. This may be the first book. (Cover isn’t out yet, but I love her Lunar Chronicles series covers).
7) Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben
Look My. Coben. I love your books. I have since I was in high school. Tell No One is forever on my top ten list, and Myron Bolitar helped change my want list in a man. So…..can you release a new Bolitar novel? Please? Either way, I’m excited to read the next stand-alone book.
8) Passenger by Alexander Bracken
I can’t figure out exactly what categories this book falls into, but I like the idea of it. While I haven’t read any of her other books, this one sounds fascinating.
9) And I Darken by Kiersten White
GoT (which I don’t watch or read) but in the Ottoman empire, with Vlad the Impaler. Look, Twilight ruined vampires, but I still love them. And if this can make them freaky and good again, I’ll try it.
10) See How They Run by Ally Carter
Okay, so I haven’t read the first book of this series. But I loved her spy book series, and I’ve got her first book. And if they’re anything alike, I’ll enjoy it.
I’m looking forward to 2016 reads! The subway is definitely going to need some distractions……
