"Asleep" by Krystal Wade- Fairytale Retelling of Sleeping Beauty.

"The Court of Mist and Fury" by Sarah J. Maas  -Loved "A Court of Thorns and Roses". Tremendously. Absolutely can't wait for this next book in the series!

"Unhooked" by Lisa Maxwell - Peter Pan retelling.  I'm so glad retelling are so popular and I'm enjoying all of the new perspectives on Neverland.

"Fear the Drowning Deep" by Sarah Glenn Marsh - Creeeeeeeepy and witchy! My kind of book!

"Everland" by Wendy Spinale- Another Peter Pan retelling (see above).

"The Gallery" by Laura Marx-Fitzgerald -Middlegrade wonders! I love anything that seems quirky and peculiar. I have good feelings about this one!

"Out of Abaton" by John Claud Bemis- Pinocchio retelling. Very excited to see how the author is going to put their own spin on this classic story.

"The Girl of Ink and Stars" by Kiran Millwood Hargrave - An adventurous young girl, a fire breathing demon? Yep. This sounds promising.

"The Inn Between" by Marina Cohen- The synopsis says "The Shining" meets "Hotel California". This is a Middlegrade. I CAN'T WAIT!

"The Night Parade" by Kathryn Tanquary -Yes yes yes yes! I so want this and can't wait for it to release so I can squeeze it to me. Japanese folklore/fairytales are so magical and I'm very excited to finally see something like this out there for MG readers.


What are you looking forward to in 2016?

  1. I am really curious about the sequel to aCoTaR. The cover for Asleep is pretty creepy, and the rest of the books have gorgeous covers.

    2. "Asleep" DOES have a creepy cover! I think that's one reason I'm drawn to it. Also, I can hardly contain myself over the ACOTAR sequel. It's giving me tummy butterflies.

      Thank you so much for dropping by!

  2. I am hoping to start on The Night Parade soon. It sounds so good! The Girl of Ink and Stars is not one I have heard of before, but it looks like it will be good too. All the books you list do really. So many great books are coming out! I love this week's theme! And of course, I would decide to deviate from it and just list my favorites from this year. I will have to do this topic next month, I think. You all are giving me some great ideas. ;-)

    1. There do seem to be quite a few good reads coming out in 2016! I'm anxious to see what others are listed for release for the second half of the year!

      I want to read "The Night Parade" so badly! I've requested an ARC but haven't heard anything back yet and the wait is making me twitch!

  3. I confess that, with the exception of Sarah Maas, I am not familiar with the other authors you've listed. I have some homework a head of me.

    1. They ARE gorgeous. I have to admit that I'm a bit of a cover snob. Many of the books I pounce on first attracted me with their beautiful covers!

  5. I'm really excited for Fear the Drowning Deep and Unhooked! So many of these books I haven't heard about, but I went and checked them out and The In Between sounds SO GOOD, as well as, Asleep! I really hope they're as scary as they sound like!
    Great list - and thanks for helping me add yet more books to my TBR. :)
