Top Ten Tuesday ǀ Anticipated Releases of Early 2016


If one has to accept and welcome a New Year - with a smile intact, the best part of that might be the new novels that we get to spend an entire year squealing over.

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016 

Considering there are plenty of upcoming releases yet to be announced, this list probably won’t even come close to the number of novels that I will be excited about as the early months of 2016 progress, giving way to later months and more news of book publications. Yet I put together a list of 10 that I am anticipating from the first three months or so of this next year.

Let's find out what those are.


 
Who cares that I've not read Red Queen. Apparently I'm still lobbying to snatch a copy of this immediately upon its release. I'll use the  beauty of its cover as reason why.

The Sherlock Holmes reimagining plot is enough to make me super curious.

This being a trilogy is all I expected from Julianna Deering's 30s era mystery series. A fourth story with Drew and Co. is icing on the cake. If you like BBC productions like Grantchester or the beyond brilliant Aussie series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, you'll likely enjoy these. 

Amazon | Goodreads
This seems to be the "it" book of early 2016. So naturally, I added it to my must list.

A return to Jody Hedlund's fun YA world (medieval era) is a hotly anticipated novel for my bookshelf. Plus how could I miss a book involving a heroine who (apparently) excels in archery!? (Bravo on the whole "reverse Robin Hood twist.")

Amazon | Goodreads
Contemporary romance sap that I am, reading Denise's next novel in her new series (which began with Falling Like Snowflakes) is a given. It sounds like a really sweet story that still uses her trademark, which is to tackle some tough emotional subjects.

Amazon | Goodreads

Apart from the fact that this sounds like "Rissi catnip" story wise, the setting of this book has me all like: *Throws confetti* This is primarily because of my childhood love of the Anne of Green Gables movies. I'm thrilled to be reading this in the next week or so for a review commitment.

Amazon | Goodreads
 
After discovering The Start of You and Me this year, reading Emery's next novel sounds exciting. I so enjoyed Max and Paige from said novel and feel like, while this new novel sounds completely different, I'm going to again be swept up into a masterful and entertaining YA novel.

Amazon | Goodreads
 
I don't know what more to say about this novel that I already haven't. It continues to sound sensational.

Amazon | Goodreads

 
This one being on the list should be self-explanatory. I adored Dani's debut series about five siblings living in Alaska, so reading her new series (which will step away from that comfortable world) promises to be one breath-catching adventure after another.

That's a wrap on today's final Top Ten Tuesday of 2015 meme.

    1. Hi Halee, thank you for the kind words. I was ready for a change. The design aspect is part of the fun of blogging. :)

      I'm super excited for A Study in Charlotte. Sherlock is always a fun thing to see re-told, and BBC's show is one of my favorite "addictions." :D

      Thanks so much for visiting.
