Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish over here. This week’s theme is “Top Ten Favorite 2016 Releases So Far This Year.” I know I haven’t been very active on my blog lately, but I couldn’t pass up this week’s topic! Here are my top ten 2016 releases so far, not including ARCs that come out later this year:
1. The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie
An epic story of a girl named Cas who is suddenly swooped up by pirates and is forced to raise a Reckoner pup for them. Super diverse and a must-read debut for sure.
2. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Written by the fabulous Susan Dennard, she introduces her new quartet with an amazing start in a story of friendship and magic.
3. The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry
A beautifully-written debut with a story of true love and what it means to do things for love, Emily Henry writes a fascinating tale of Natalie and her adventures through worlds with Beau.
4. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
With characters who are the descendants of the real Sherlock and Watson characters, A Study in Charlotte was an amazing page-turner that will have you on the edge of your seat.
5. The Island by S. Usher Evans
An amazing start to a new trilogy, S. Usher Evans will have you burning as her characters, who are enemies, are stranded on an island together with no clear way out.
6. Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee
Historical fiction at its finest, Outrun the Moon is set in in San Francisco during the San Francisco earthquake in Chinatown, following stubborn, but witty, Mercy Wong as she attempts to attend a private school.
7. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Definitely one to read this summer, The Unexpected Everything is a story of a summer where nothing goes as expected and Andie must deal with it as well as her best friends and this really cute guy who keeps appearing.
8. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
The sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses, this one absolutely blows the other ones away where we find out character motives and Feyre’s true powers.
9. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
In an epic world, Amani must use her wits, powers, and maybe the mysterious stranger in town to get out of her town and save the world.
10. Signs of You by Emily France
A story of beginning and endings, Signs of You was such a sweet conclusion of how Riley comes to terms with her mother’s death while going on an adventure with her best friends.
In reality, all of the books I’ve read this year were amazing so far. I’ll be writing reviews for all of the books listed here if I haven’t already! The first one will probably be A Study in Charlotte later this week as my exams come to a close! I’m so done with exams omg. Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed reading about the books I love that have come out this year!
Have you, or will you be reading any of these?
