EEEEP EEEEEP EEEEEEP! 2016 is almost here and we all know what that means: it’s release time. Finally, the books I have been waiting for shall be given to me, and I will soak in their glory and praise them endlessly!
…can you see why I might be a liiiiiiittle too excited? Releases are like crack for me.
*Please excuse the excessive gifs, I was just too happy to control my keyboard.*
• Throne of Glass #5 by Sarah J. Maas (Fall)
Whyyy do we not have a title for this book yet? Why?! I’m lookin’ at you, Sarah. There are going to be so many plot developments and NEW SHIPS and epicness in this fifth installment of the Throne of Glass series, but there is a drawback: we’ll only have one more book left in the series!
• A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (May 3rd)
Me veeeeery excited for this sequel too. I totally fell in love with this sexy fantasy trilogy when I read A Court of Thorns and Roses (read my full review here), and I can’t wait to find out what happens, because THAT CLIFFHANGER THO. *it still hurts*
• Heartless by Marissa Meyer (Nov 8th)
Marissa Meyer is a sneaky little author. No warning at all, she just springs this epic new book based on Alice in Wonderland at us?! I was not prepared for that… but can I get a hellz yeah? Marissa is the QUEEN of retellings, so I’m sure she’s up to the job for this upcoming series.
• Stars Above by Marissa Meyer (Feb 2nd)
I thought I would never recover from the blow of having to let The Lunar Chronicles go. Winter is a beautiful, heart-breaking finale, and my heart… my aching heart… IS SUPAH PUMPED FOR EXTRA STORIES! Woot woot!
• The Last Star by Rick Yancey (May 24th)
The Fifth Wave was kickass, I’m sure The Infinite Sea will be fantastic, so The Last Star better blow my mind. Or better yet, blow my universe (get it, because… stars… I don’t know, is that offensive?).
• The Crown by Kiera Cass (May 3rd)
Jesus, I don’t know why I can’t tear myself away from this series. The first one, The Selection, was fairly good. But then it just went SO FAR downhill from there. And I couldn’t stop reading the sequels! *Sigh*… at least it’ll be over now.
• Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (Jan 5th)
The hype for this book. THE FRICKIN HYPE. It better live up to my expectations, because right now I’m envisioning a Sarah J. Maas-esque plotline with some Cassandra Clare-worthy characters and a splash of Rick Riordan-ish humor to mix things up, wrapping everything up with a sexily mysterious writing style. IS THIS TOO MUCH TO EXPECT? MAYBE. But Loki has told me that that’s okay.
• This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab (June 7th)
VICTORIA SCHWAB’S BACK with an epic monster-filled book of amazingness, and I am ready. I have nothing further to add because we need a moment of silence for how amazing this writer is. *bows head*
• A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (Feb 23rd)
Ooooh, oooh, ooh, another sequel! A Darker Shade of Magic was brilliant and sharp and clever, and I need MOAR of this glorious world and these snarky characters. Captain Barbossa and I have had many chats about Kell and Lila, and it always boils down to us both screaming:
• The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater (Sep 3rd)
Maybe I cheated a little here. Maybe I’ve only read The Raven Boys, but I loved it so much that I had to include the fourth and LAST book in this quartet. Maybe I will read the other two books before this one comes out. MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE. *Cait, I’m sorry that I failed you and have not read more of this amazing series*
Ahhh, let us squeal with excitement and dance around together! Are you excited for any of these books? Which releases are you looking forward to? Have you ever been dramatically gossiping with Barbossa? Because that guy will literally go down with his ships. *haha I am a comedic genius*
