UNRELEASED 2016 BOOKS THAT I WANT TO GET MY HANDS ON

"Top Ten Tuesday" is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish to share lists (because we love them) about books and bookish things. 

*photos will take you to the Goodreads links, so that you can add these books to your TBRs*

*also, when I made this list, I completely forgot about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which I have obviously already preordered and will cry over when it appears on my doorstep, but know that Cursed Child is obviously #1 most anticipated because . . . it's Harry Potter, of course it's number one*



Spindle by E.K. Johnston
Expected Publication: 6 December 2016 (but let's face it, we know publishing, it will probably be pushed to 2017)

This is the companion to the 2015 release A Thousand Nights that I will admit I haven't read, but that's what companion series are all about, right? I recently read and loved Exit, Pursued by a Bear by this same author, so the author was definitely what piqued my interest with this one.

Also, this is a retelling that I haven't read. (I want to say that it's Sleeping Beauty.) Additionally, Johnston answered a question about this book on GR and said "SPINDLE is definitely about the OMG THINGS ARE CHASING US." so, um, I'm very interested in this.


And I Darken by Kiersten White
Expected Publication: 28 June 2016

I'm very worried about the hype with this one, as I have already heard such amazing things about it. Gender-bent Vlad the Impaler.

That's all I would like to know, thank you.


Replica by Lauren Oliver
Expected Publication: 4 October 2016

It's a flippy book. (Like Life and Death, but not a book parading as Midnight Sun.) If you watch BookTube at all, then I'm sure you've seen about 20 people tell you how to read this in their BEA book hauls, but I would like to tell you again because it's a flippy book and I am ridiculously excited.

This will be my first Lauren Oliver, and I normally have little interest in reading her books. However, when I heard her talking about this book in March at SEYA Bookfest, then I knew that I wanted to read it (if only because how excited she was about the book).

I am super excited to jump into Oliver's work with this unique piece.


The Muse by Jessie Burton
Expected Publication: 26 July 2016

List of buzz words hit
- Immigrants
- Spain
- London
- illegitimate children (not really a "buzz word" but these always make for very interesting and complicated characters, so I'm counting it)

From the Goodreads synopsis: "tale of desire, ambition, and the ways in which the tides of history inevitably shape and define our lives."

I'm so here for this.


The Last One by Alexandra Oliva
Expected Publication: 12 July 2016

This is classified as being for readers of Station Eleven, which I recently inhaled and absolutely loved with all my heart.

It's described as a thrilling psychological suspense, and it's a debut which is always exciting! A few things about The Last One: 1) our main character's name is Zoo, how cool (and odd) is that?! and 2) it talks about reality TV and how the media very heavily plays a part in what we perceive as "real" (or not real).

From the Goodreads synopsis: "Sophisticated and provocative, The Last One is a novel that forces us to confront the role that media plays in our perception of what is real: how readily we cast our judgments, how easily we are manipulated." Yes, please.



This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
Expected Publication: 5 July 2016 (Already released in the UK - lucky bastards)

I will forever be in love with Schwab's elevator pitch of this book:

"Sin City PLUS Romeo and Juliet MINUS romance PLUS monsters.

It's the story of two teens in a broken world, where violent acts breed actual monsters. Some are shadows with teeth that feed on flesh and bone. Some are corpses that feed on blood. And some can pass for human. Those feed on souls.

It's the story of Kate Harker, the only daughter of a crime boss, and August Flynn, the son of a man trying to hold his city together. She's a human who wants to be a monster, and he's a monster who wishes he were human."


Also, it's Victoria Schwab, and she is queen of all so here . . . no, please I want you to take my money.



Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo
Expected Publication: 27 September 2016

I feel blasefemous having this so high on my list because I haven't finished the Grisha trilogy nor have I read Six of Crows, but I have until September and it's going to have blood-red stained pages. I need no more information.


Futhermore by Tahereh Mafi
Expected Publication: 30 August 2016

A cute middle grade book by one of the cutest authors in the world about a colorless girl in a colorful world who is going on a fun adventure and has the WhittyNovels stamp of approval? Done. I'm there. 

But really, though, our main character--Alice--is in fact colorless and does in fact go on a dangerous adventure through Furthermore to go and rescue her father with a boy named Oliver, who is basically MG Loki (AKA he has the "magical ability based in lies in deceit").

I think this a book about the lengths people go to for love, and I am so excited.


Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Expected Publication: 18 October 2016

The sole reason this is number 2 and not 1 is that this has a later publication date, so I have more time to fangirl and sit in horrible anticipation.

Pardon me while I roll my head across the keyboard while I sit in agonywsswedrtyhjhyrtrfdcfvgttghjkuyhgbvc.

A flailing review of book one in this series.


Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Expected Publication: 9 August 2016

I have no idea how to put my thoughts about this book into coherent words other than I believe someone has described this book as if Hogwarts was filled with murder instead of magic?

I don't even know.

*flails and runs around in circles* *heavy breathing* I'm just so excited for this book.



Are any of these on your list? Tell me down below! Also, share your list with me because a TBR is only a problem if it's not rapidly growing. (Wait. I don't think that's right . . .)
