Top Ten Tuesday | Upcoming Anticipated Reads


Top Ten Tuesday

At the beginning of 2016 (who gave this year its permission slip to be half over!?), we took a look at the novels we were anticipating for the early part of the year. Today, the Broke and Bookish ladies ask us to share the novels we’re anticipating for this second half.  

Broke and Bookish June 14th Topic
Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year
(since we did a topic about the releases we were excited about for the first half of 2016 back in the beginning of the year) Feel free to tweak it how you want to -- like most anticipated fantasy for the second half of 2016 or debut authors. Whatever you want! 

Any book nerd knows that there seems to be an endless string of novels to anticipate. There is never a shortage of new books even if it is during the slower times publishing houses inevitably experience. Even at that, most all of us probably have a backlist of books that would fall into the new-to-me category. In short, is there ever a shortage of books for us to discover and enjoy? In all likelihood, the answer is a resounding no 

Today, I’ve collected fifteen (because ten clearly isn't enough) books (in varying genres) that I’m anticipating beginning with titles releasing as soon as July, working all the way through December of 2016. Although for the purpose of clarification, the list will again be sorted alphabetically, by author.
 


1. Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton (September 2016) | I've not read a novel by Brodi, but this one sounds quite interesting. Needless to say, I'm all for some YA Lit intrigue plus I like the heroine's name (Piper). Amazon | Goodreads

2. Nemesis by Anna Banks (October 2016) | Another one that looks and sounds crazy interesting. I mean, come on, who doesn't think that cover looks kick-butt awesome!? AmazonGoodreads
The princess didn't expect to fall in love--with her nemesis.

 3. The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof (August 2016) | As I've enjoyed each of the novels by Joanne that I've read, I've little doubt this beauty will be equally charming. Don't miss this one! Amazon | Goodreads  

4. Forever Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon (August 2016) | The epic retelling of Brigadoon comes to a close with this fourth and final installment in the Doon series. Amazon | Goodreads

5. Without Warning by Lynette Eason (August 2016) | I read Lynette's last novel, Always Watching and was so impressed with it. From the cover to the fast-paced story inside its pages, it's easily one of Lynette's best yet. Looking forward to what's yet to come in this series. Amazon | Goodreads
 

6. Unblemished by Sara Ella (October 2016) | Who doesn't enjoy discovering debut authors? Youtuber Sara Ella's debut novel hits stores this fall, and I couldn't be more excited to see what comes from her first YA novel. Amazon | Goodreads

7. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge (September 2016) | A Romeo and Juliet re-telling ordinarily wouldn't be something I'd be up for (simply because I'm a HEA kind of girl), but Rosamund has been recommended to me as an author I'd like time and again, plus this one does sound romantically atmospheric. Who can resist that combination? Amazon | Goodreads
 

8. Just a Kiss by Denise Hunter (September 2016) | A contemporary romance? Rissi catnip. Enough said. AmazonGoodreads 

9. Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig (December 2016) | Anyone who likes suspense fiction is missing out if they've not read any of Ronie's novels.  They're not only inspiring and patriotic, they're simply off the charts good. This is the first of a brand-new series for Ronie plus marks her debut with Bethany House publishers. Amazon | Goodreads
 
10. The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee (August 2016) | This cover "screams" classy like nobody's business. The synopsis equally sounds complex and fabulous. Combine all this with the fact that Katharine is a debut author and my interest is piqued! Amazon | Goodreads 


11. Stealing Snow by  Danielle Paige (September 2016) | A new fairytale? I'm so in! I've not read any of Danielle's novels, but am most curious about her Wizard of Oz re-tellings. Have you read them? If so, what'd you think? Amazon | Goodreads

12. A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay (November 2016) | Up until now, any new novel by Katherine is on my auto-buy list. This one is no different. Where's November? Amazon | Goodreads


 

13. Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren (October 2016) | I'm excited about this one for a number of reasons. One being this is kind of a "return" for me since I first discovered this author through her earlier suspense novels that were about a search and rescue team. Amazon | Goodreads

14. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West (July 2016) | As if this cover weren't cute enough, this one also sounds darling. Cannot wait to have a copy in hand. Amazon | Goodreads

15. An I Darken by Kiersten White (December 2016) | I don't know much about this one aside from the fact that its title is epic. Amazon | Goodreads

  1. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire made my list as well. I love R&J and even though it's a bit over done, I'm always intrigued by a retelling. I think Hodge will put a dark and entertaining twist on the story though, and I'm looking forward to finding out what it is. Cruel Beauty was so weird but so entertaining.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Rosamund's writing and style, Mallory! Always fun to learn what others think. :) I heard something to the effect of one of her novels being weird in comparison to the other but cannot remember which to be honest. Sounds like either way, that's a universal feeling. Thanks so much for visiting! :)

  6. This is a great list! I am looking forward to a lot of these as well, but they're not even on my list because 2016 has so many amazing releases to look forward to! The thousandth floor is one that is newer to me but looks incredible, and I can't wait to read Kasie West's new one! And I Darken is also crazy amazing, so I hope you love it!

    1. Don't they!? I'm all for a bit of YA drama (plus I really liked Ally Carter's All Fall Down) and Nemesis looks as if it could be VERY good indeed. Hope you can find a good YA novel, Amanda. Let me know if you do! :)

    1. I like authors like Kasie West for cute and happy-go-lucky fiction. Since I like HEA in my fiction, that's my mood most of the time. ;) I agree! 'Snow' and 'Darken' do look good. Here's hoping they are.

      A pleasure. THANK YOU for the return visit, Susan. :)

  16. Oh I have a couple of these in ARCs and I can't wait to get to them myself but I just finished And I Darken and really enjoyed it. I also have the first few books in the Doon series but i haven't started them yet but I see this next one will be the end so that means I can have me a little marathon! yay

    1. I'm glad you liked And I Darken, Eve. I've been curious about it for a while now. As for the Doon series I hope you enjoy it! It's lots of fun and I really like the friendship angle. Marathon reading is the best, right!? :)
