Top 5 Most Anticipated of 2016

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing holiday full of family, food, books, laughter, more books and then even more books:) I still have family in town to celebrate the new year, but I wanted to do a quick post to share the top 5 books I'm most looking forward to in 2016.

It should be noted that my 2016 must-have list is embarrassingly long, but these 5 are the ones I would consider camping out for if I thought there was a chance I'd get them even a minute early. I'm not much of a camper though, so there would need to be chocolate present to literally sweeten the deal ;-)

*makes grabby hands*

In no particular order:

THE SONG RISING
The Bone Season #3

On the eve of a new decade, after two hundred years of Scion rule, a revolution is beginning. Its unlikely cradle is the clairvoyant underworld in London, and even an old ally’s betrayal cannot stop it.

But an enemy from Paige Mahoney’s past is about to return – an enemy that could quench the flame of hope for good . . .

A COURT OF MIST AND  FURY
A Court of Thorns and Roses #2

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court--but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms--and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future--and the future of a world cleaved in two.

THE KING SLAYER
The Witch Hunter #2

Former witch hunter Elizabeth Grey is hiding within the magically protected village of Harrow, evading the price put on her head by Lord Blackwell, the usurper king of Anglia. Their last encounter left Blackwell ruined, but his thirst for power grows stronger every day. He's readying for a war against those who would resist his rule--namely Elizabeth and the witches, wizards, pirates, and healers she now calls her friends.
Having lost her stigma, a magical source of protection and healing, Elizabeth's strength is tested both physically and emotionally. War always means sacrifice, and as the lines between good and evil blur once more, Elizabeth must decide just how far she'll go to save those she loves.

HEARTLESS

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend and supply the Kingdom of Hearts with delectable pastries and confections. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next Queen.

At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the king's marriage proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship.

Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

STRANGE THE DREAMER

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.

  1. Heartless! I can't wait to read it myself. :)
    You're going to have to tell me how A Court of Misty & Fury goes when you read it. I loved the 1st, but the talk of triangles in this one makes me want to run far far far away. I'll be waiting for your review. :)
    I hope all these books wind up being amazing for you, Jenny!

    1. I'm hoping there won't be a dreaded triangle, they seemed on pretty sure footing at the end of the first book. Sarah J. Maas can be brutal though, so I'll flip to the end first and will let you know ;-)

  14. Oh yes, these are great picks! I haven't read all of these authors, but most of them I have and also love!

  15. Looking forward to a lot of these too! Especially A Court of Mist and Fury (so curious as to what will happen after the ending of book one) and The Song Rising (can't believe we have to wait until November for that one!).

  16. I am one third of myself. I had to sever into three in order to grab and read ACOMAF, Strange the Dreamer, and Heartless at the same time and hold them forever and ever.

    Except, you know, I can't. Not for another few months. What torture that will be.

    I agree with your picks so, so much. And I'm ridiculously excited about them all.
