Top Ten Tuesday #82: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2016

Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Their blog can be found here.

June 14th: 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!

There are so many books I am anticipating this year, so it is going to be hard to keep it to only 10 books!

My Bookish Itinerary

Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Release Date: October 18
I LOVED Illuminae. It is an interesting, entertaining, and heart-pounding story that I couldn't put down. It is unique and I loved every second I read it. So I of course, cannot wait until the next one comes out!

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: September 6
I am a Throne of Glass fangirl. I love this series very much, so I am very excited for book five!

Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: November 8
I LOVE Marissa Meyer's writing. I LOVED all of The Lunar Chronicle books, and will read anything she writes. I am really looking forward to this retelling!

Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes #3) by Sara Raasch
Release Date:  September 20
I LOVE this trilogy so much. I am so excited and so sad for the last book!

Vicarious (Vicarious #1) by Paula Stokes
Release Date: August 16
I LOVE Paula Stokes. I have loved all the books I have read by her so I of course cannot wait to read this one too. 
My Bookish Itinerary

Illusion (The Heirs of Watson Island #3) by Martina Boone
Release Date: October 25
I love this series. I can't wait to see what happens next!

A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2) by Sabaa Tahir
Release Date: August 30
I absolutely LOVED An Ember in the Ashes when I read it last year. I was SO HAPPY when I found out there would be a sequel. I can't wait to be able to read it!

Nemesis (Nemesis #1) by Anna Banks
Release Date: October 4
I enjoy Anna's writing. Her Syrena Legacy trilogy was entertaining. I also enjoyed reading Joyride and How to Lose a Bachelor. So I am really excited to read her new fantasy book.

The Midnight Star (The Young Elites #3) by Marie Lu
Release Date: October 11
Okay, confession time: I haven't actually read any of the books from this series yet. I have been wanting to and I even own the first two, but I decided to hold off and wait until this one comes out. I LOVED Marie Lu's Legend trilogy. I can't wait until it comes out and I can binge read all three!

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: September 27
Okay, I haven't read Six of Crows yet. (I do have it, I preordered it!) I have already preordered this one too. I am so excited to read Six of Crows, which I think is part of the reason I haven't yet. I don't want it to be over and then die waiting. I will probably wait and read it in September right before this one comes out. I'm still really excited for Crooked Kingdom though!

Which books are you anticipating the most for the second half of 2016?


  1. YES! Amazing list. I am so excited about so many of these books. Gemina, Empire of Storns, The Midnight Star, and Crooked Kingdom made my list as well.

  2. I'm glad it isn't just me that hasn't read the Young Elites yet! I started it but didn't want to wait between books. Gemina and Crooked Kingdom are high on my list too!

  3. Empire of Storms and Heartless were both on my list this week too!
