Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every other week I will post a list of my ten favorites in a certain category.


My most anticipated releases include mostly next installments in series I love. It makes sense, really. Because I'm already in love with the world and characters and I'm a naturally impatient person, I just can't wait to get my hands on those next books. Then again, ask me my most anticipated releases in six months time and the list might be entirely different. I might come across some other really great releases later on. What are the books you're looking forward to? Any I should know about?

1. The Winds Of Winter (asoaif #6) by George R.R. Martin
I'm going to be real optimistic here. I know Martin didn't make his deadline. He didn't succeed in finishing the book before the end of 2015. The Winds Of Winter won't be out before the start of Game Of Thrones season 6. But I'm still hoping 2016 will be the year. And if it is, this is by far my most anticipated release. Please, please, please... *fingers crossed*

2. Throne Of Glass #5 (tba) by Sarah J. Maas
I don't know what to say. My obsession with this series is probably not healthy anymore. I'm so in love with everything involving this series I just had to put it in second place. (First, if you consider the possibility of WoW actually releasing..) The title has yet to be announced, there is no cover... and yet I'm already overly excited and eager to get my hands on what will without a doubt be another masterpiece.

3. Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard
It has been almost a year since I read Red Queen, which means I have been waiting almost a year for the release of Glass Sword. I know this probably won't be the number #1 of the year, but at this moment it's the #1 book I'm most impatient for. I am so ready to learn what will become of Cal and Maven.. SO JUST GET ME MY COPY ALREADY. Thankyouverymuch.

4. A Court Of Mist And Fury (acotar #2) by Sarah J. Maas
This release isn't so far off anymore, which means my excitement is flaring up as well. If ACOTAR is anything like TOG, the second book will be better than the first and I can't wait for that the happen. With Rhysand the main reason for my impatience and excitement. And Lucien. And yes, of course Tamlin and Feyre as well. But mainly Rhysand though. Sarah J. Maas is a real torturer.

5. The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater
There's something really compelling about this series. It's mainly the characters. I'm in love with all my raven boys. Or - well - Blue's raven boys. (I really like to call them mine) Ronan Lynch is my absolute fave and I'm anxious to find out what this final piece will have in store for him. The cover is gorgeous. Let's hope they won't push the release date even further back. I'm ready. 

6. Crooked Kingdom (Six Of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo
The release of this book seems so incredibly far off. September 2016. It feels almost wrong to put it here, but ever since I read SOC last september I haven't been fully able to get it out of my head. It was so very, very good. If the sequel is anything like the original story, it'll blow my mind. So yes, this definitely makes the top 10 of most anticipated releases. Even if there are still months to go.

7. The Young Elites #3 (tba) by Marie Lu
I guess sometimes I need some darkness in my life. I'm so insanely curious to find out what will become of Adelina and if she will ever manage to find herself again. I was a mess after finishing The Rose Society and Marie Lu better make it up to me here. Again, the wait is long. But I'm confident she will make it worth it. The third book will be the final one, so bring it on!

8. Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) by Susan Dennard
This book has been on my TBR since the moment it was announced. I don't even remember how it originally got there, because I have never read anything by Susan Dennard before. I think some other (loved) author mentioned it in some kind of interview and it's gotten me excited ever since. I'm hopeful the book will deliver. The synopsis sounds great!

9. The Inquisition (Summoner #2) by Taran Matharu
I feel like the first book is underappreciated. It deservers more attention. I loved it and in people seem to generally agree with this. The world was interesting and I liked Fletcher. The book also ended in a huge cliffhanger - so yeah, give me the damn book already!

10. Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1) by Cassandra Clare
I promised myself I wasn't going to get excited by a book by Cassandra Clare ever again. I mean, she writes them faster then I can read and that's never a good sign. But other people have gotten me hyped up, and I have to admit that I quite liked fierce Emma Carstairs in City Of Heavenly Fire. So here I am. A little excited after all. Let's hope I won't regret it.
