We’re keeping the new release trend rolling this week on Top Ten Tuesday by Broke and the Bookish. There have been so many amazing releases this year already, and even more to come! Some of my top ten I’ve read, some I’m waiting to read, and others I still haven’t gotten my hands on…so without further ado.
My Top Ten 2016 Releases…So Far:
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I just finished writing my review on ACOMAF, and wow, was it difficult – there are so many emotions and things that need to be discussed. I can’t remember the last time I devoured a novel so quickly! For days I skipped lunch and sleep and more lunches to finish…the last night I read so quickly it was over before I knew it! If you haven’t read this series yet, better add it to the list – it’s amazing!
The Madwoman Upstairs by Catherine Lowell
and Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
Jane Eyre is one of my favorite novels, and as a retelling, Jane Steele is superb, but also an amazing novel for those who haven’t read the beloved classic. On the opposite end of the spectrum, The Madwoman Upstairs reveals the hidden relationship between the Bronte sisters and the ground breaking stories they told.
The Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
The story of four teenagers of different backgrounds bound by their pursuit of survival and by the secrets they keep. The Salt to the Sea is a unique telling of World War II and the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, and the many that did not survive.
The Relic Master by Christopher Buckley
Just one more example of Christopher Buckley’s genius for satires, The Relic Master exposes the frivolous fraud behind the relic industry as Dismas is caught between his two greatest clients, Frederick the Wise and Cardinal Albrecht of Mainz. Whether for the modern humor or medieval history, The Relic Master is a unique pleasure.
The Queen of the Night Alexander Chee
The tale of a fated opera diva, bound by her secrets and lovers, it’ll take more than her haunting voice to escape the trickery in store. Parisian extravagances, grand balls, beautiful gowns, espionage…what’s not to love about The Queen of Night?
Releases Still On My TBR:
The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
and Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld
I have both of these novels, I just haven’t read them yet. I always blame my library holds, but then I just keep putting more books on hold. I think, deep down, I’m just not ready to read them – The Nest because I know I’m going to love it and want to wait for the perfect time to read it and Eligible because I’m afraid I might hate it. What did you think of them?
Never Ever by Sara Saedi
and With Malice by Eileen Cook
My library has yet to acquire either – maybe I should just buy them?
What have been your favorite releases this year?
