Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year

This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, is our most anticipated releases for the second half of 2016. This week, we've just done one list as we're basically excited for all the same books, but since there are so many amazing looking books coming out over the next six months we couldn't narrow it down, so we've given you eleven rather than ten!

You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott (26th July 2016)

We love a good Megan Abbott book, so You Will Know Me is definitely on both of our tbr's. It's the story of the Knox family, and what happens to them when a death hits the gymnastics community of which Devon Knox is part of. 


What's a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne (1st August 2016)

Well, of course feminist fiction will be on our most anticipated reads list. This book is about the awful consequences of a girl addressing sexism.


It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover (2nd August 2016)

This book has been proclaimed by reviewers as the best Colleen Hoover book, a tearjerker, and all in all, utterly soul destroying. I don't think any other reasons to read it as soon as possible are necessary.


A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (30th August 2016)

This is the sequel to An Ember in the Ashes, so do we even need to explain why we need this book right now?


Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (6th September 2016)

Ahh, finally. The fifth installment in the Throne of Glass series is coming out, and after Queen of Shadows, it's gonna be a tearjerker.


The Graces by Laure Eve (6th September 2016)

A little excerpt from this book:
Everyone said the Graces were witches. They moved through the corridors like sleek fish, ripples in their wake. Stares followed their backs and their hair. 
They had friends, but they were just distractions. They were waiting for someone different. All I had to do was show them that person was me. 

Enough said, I think!


A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess (20th September 2016)

This looks like the beginning of an amazing new fantasy series - plus, it's a debut novel! *grabby hands* 


The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis (20th September 2016)

A dark, complex, contemporary thriller - what more do you need in a book?


Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor (27th September 2016)

I have absolutely loved Laini Taylor since reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, and I can't wait to get a little glimpse into her amazing, imaginative mind again with Strange the Dreamer!  


Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (27th September 2016)

Well. The next, and last, book in the Six of Crows series. I have mixed feelings about this book. 
One feeling: I need this book right this second.
Another feeling: When this duology is over, it'll take a bit of my soul with it.


Heartless by Marissa Meyer (8th November 2016)

We love retellings. A retelling of the story of the Queen of Hearts by the master of fairytale-retellings, Marissa Meyer? Yes please!


What are your most anticipated releases for the rest of 2016? Are there any others we should look out for?
