June 14: 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!
I’m going for a list of books coming out in the second half of 2016, all of which I am terribly excited to read. 😀
1. Magic Binds; Ilona Andrews. This is one of my favorite series, and it’s really starting to ramp up the action!
2. Paper & Fire; Rachel Caine. I loved the first book in this series. Books about libraries are almost always amazing.
3. Crooked Kingdom; Leigh Bardugo. The first book was fascinating, so I hope this one is, too.
4. Solutions & Other Problems; Allie Brosh. Recommended by, and similarly laugh-out-loud funny to, The Bloggess.
5. Imprudence; Gail Carriger. It’s not easy being the daughter of a werewolf and the adopted daughter of a vampire, but Pru had been managing until recently… but something is worrying her parents.
6. The Obelisk Gate; N.K. Jemisin. So much drama in the first book! A terrible mistreatment of people with a certain skill leads, as you’d expect, to revolution.
7. Gemina; Amie Kaufman. I love stories that incorporate letter/ texts/ notes/ emails/ etc., and the first book in this series did that very well.
(No cover yet)
8. Once Broken Faith; Seanan McGuire. The latest book in her Toby Daye series, which I adore.
9. The Long Cosmos; Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter. I was quite sad to read the last ever Discworld book, and though I don’t love this series as much, it will be sad to read this last ever Long Earth book. But I’m eager to see how it goes.
10. Project Elfhome; Wen Spencer. This particular mix of magic and reality has been a favorite of mine for years, and each new book adds to my enjoyment. This short story collection will, I hope, do the same.
