Top Ten Tuesday

Posted June 14, 2016 by Nicky in General / 9 Comments

This week’s theme is “Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year”, which is always a difficult topic for me as I have no real clue what’s upcoming. I know, I’m rubbish. So here’s a bunch of books that I don’t think are out yet, which I want to get.

Cover of Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal Cover of This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab Cover of Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor Cover of The Reader by Traci Chee Cover of Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier

  1. Ghost Talkers, by Mary Robinette Kowal. I’ve been in love with the cover since it was announced, and I’ve enjoyed Kowal’s previous books.
  2. This Savage Song, by Victoria Schwab. I’ve actually read this already, but I love it and I want more people to read it. You can check out my review here!
  3. Strange the Dreamer, by Laini Taylor. I might not have got round to reading Dreams of Gods and Monsters yet, but that’s definitely not Taylor’s fault. I’m excited for her next book!
  4. The Reader, by Traci Chee. I can’t remember where I first saw this, but I know it’s been in my mind as something to check out for a while now.
  5. Den of Wolves, by Juliet Marillier. I haven’t actually read the second book yet, but I enjoyed Dreamer’s Pool a lot, so I’m looking forward to this.
  6. The Burning Page, by Genevieve Cogman. I found the second book really entertaining and better than I expected, so I’m actually quite impatient for this one!
  7. Necessity, by Jo Walton. It’s Jo, ’nuff said.
  8. The Obelisk Gate, by N.K. Jemisin. Hopefully it’ll give me the kick in the butt to read The Fifth Season, ahaha…
  9. City of Miracles, by Robert Jackson Bennett. Okay, technically I think it’s January of 2017, but shush, I want it noooow.
  10. Ruined, by Amy Tintera. Because Cait @ Paper Fury made it sound awesome.

I’m surprised — quite a few of these actually leaped to mind! What’s everyone else looking forward to? Have I forgotten something obvious?

  1. Hmm, all my favorites (Cat Valente, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maggie Stiefvater) already came out with their books this year! So I don’t think I’m expecting anything–but I really want to read Ruined, for the same reason as you. Oh, and maybe The Foretelling of Georgie Spider will come out in the US this year? I can only hope so!

  2. Oh yes, I’m looking forward to pretty much everything here! I’ll have to catch up with The Masked City before The Burned Page (not for another year in the US) and I always want to read that Jo Walton series!

  3. I have wondered about Ghost Talkers which sounds quite interesting. I don’t pay much attention to when things are due out because with my dreadful memory, I’d just forget 5 minutes later! I tried writing publication dates down a few times and kept losing the list…!

    • I’ve enjoyed Kowal’s other books, but I think they’re much less your thing. I’m bad at keeping track of new books too…
