Top 10 Books I'm Anticipating

Happy Tuesday, Biblionerds!

There are a number of books I'm still anxiously awaiting to be released in 2016! There are so many books every year that I want to get my hands on, even though I have an extraordinary TBR pile already.

Here are a few of my most anticipated releases for the remainder of 2016 - They're all YA and MG. Go figure.

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!

"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" by J.K. Rowling - Being part of the generation that grew up with Harry Potter (literally. I was 12 when the first book released in the States and in college when #7 released), I'm ecstatic that the story is continuing after all of this time. At nearly 30 years old, I'm still the rabid fan I ever was - and I feel this book will be a particularly rewarding read. Being able to continue to relate to Harry and the others as a parent (not of teenagers, but still) will be tremendous. Literary friends are your forever friends, and it's going to be like catching up after a long time apart. 

"Strange the Dreamer" by Laini Taylor- Once you read the synopsis, you'll understand why I'm freaking out over the release of this one.

"Strange the Dreamer is the story of:

the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperiled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.

Welcome to Weep."

"Stealing Snow" by Danielle Paige - Another brilliant synopsis - Reality and Fantasy collide, where else? But in an Asylum. Hot dang. 

"Enter a Glossy Web" by Mckenna Reah Ruebush- A bunch of kids are on a magical adventure through time to rescue stolen family and solve unsolvable mysteries. Check! 

"How to Hang a Witch" by Adriana Mather- I'm always curious about a story of witches and the persecution of people groups based on belief and aptitude. It's a macabre interest that stems from a keen desire to feel continuously outraged by ignorant people. I don't understand myself sometimes.

'The Haunted House Project" by Tricia Clasen - "The Haunted House Project is a journey through loss and grief, but ultimately a story of hope and self-reliance. As much as Andie has been changed by her mother’s death, the changes she makes herself are the ones that are most important." - Who can say no to that? Really.

"Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard"by Rick Riordan -Rick Riordan. Norse Mythology. 'Nuf Said.

"The Scourge" by Jennifer A. Nielsen - A plague is sweeping the land, and a young girl gets caught up in its nasty clutches, only to discover that there's more to this disease than she originally believed and there's something more unsavory than the sickness that the girl and her new friend must vanquish. 

"The Forgetting" by Sharon Cameron - Every twelve years, everyone loses their memory and the only way to remember what you're all about is to check in with a book you've written your history in. Of course, history can lie. Enter the one girl who NEVER forgets and knows all the secrets and all the lies of in all of the histories that have been written. Trouble is coming!

"The Peculiar Night of Blue Heart" by Lauren DeStefano - Then one seems like a fluffy and potentially creepy middlegrade, and I do enjoy those. On the list!

What books are you anxiously awaiting?

Let's Be Friends!

Auggie is the 29 year old whirlwind owner of Auggie-Talk. A bibliobibuli by nature and a (potentially obsessive) lover of Diana Wynne Jones and Neil Gaiman. Not so secrety secret: She's been known to consume too much caffeine leading to hyperactive rants about her heinous lack of shelving and the high likelihood that Hermione Granger is her spirit animal.


  1. Strange the Dreamer is one of my most wanted books of 2016, period. I love Laini Taylor's writing and can't wait to devour this book!

    I'm reading How to Hang a Witch right now, and honestly all I want to do is to speed up time to the fall and visit Salem.

  2. The Cursed Child, How To Hang A Witch and The Hammer of Thor were all on my list this week too!
