2016 was always going to be a year for book lovers, with new releases such as ‘Lady Midnight’, ‘Passenger’ and ‘Truthwitch’ setting the bar high for fans expectations. For me, I’ve narrowed down my most anticipated released of 2016 to five. They are:
• ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’, by Sarah J.Maas (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2)
This is the second book in best-selling author, Sarah J.Maas’ new trilogy. The first book (referred to as ACOTAR) was my favourite read of 2015 (out of 75 books!) It follows the story Feyre as she is thrust into the world of Fae after killing a wolf in the woods. Described as a (very, very) loose re-telling of beauty and the beast, Sarah J.Maas’ beautiful writing really captivated me and I cannot wait for the second instalment set to be released on the 3rd May 2016.
• ‘Empire of Storms’, by Sarah J.Maas (Throne of Glass series #5)
This is the fifth instalment to the best-selling series by Sarah J.Maas. It’s a high fantasy and I would definitely recommend it to everyone! There is not much I can see about this series but I have no doubt that ‘Empire of Storms’ is going create a lot of emotion! This novel is set to be released on the 6th September 2016.
• ‘Frost Like Night’, by Sara Raasch (Snow Like Ashes Trilogy #3)
This is the final instalment of the beautifully written trilogy by Raasch. It’s about a young warrior girl from Winter. This book was such an interesting read! Oh – and the covers, they are stunning! I’m really excited and nervous and scared to see how this trilogy will end. (Tissues at the ready people!) This novel is set to be released on the 20th September 2016.
• ‘The Midnight Star’, by Marie Lu ( The Young Elites #3)
This is the final instalment to the best-selling author , Marie Lu’s trilogy. It’s based in a fictional world where the Elites are powerful – thanks to their mutation – but they are feared by everyone. This is a high fantasy and a quick, fast paced trilogy. It is set to be released on the 11th October 2016.
• ‘The Sanctuary’ , by Sara Elizabeth Santana (The Awakened Duology #2)
This is the second instalment , which follows the life of Zoey Valentine, as the tries to survive in an apocalypse. The Awakened was a fantastic read with a lovely blend of action and romance. ‘The Sanctuary is set to be released on the 1st December 2016.
So there you have it, my top five most anticipated releases of 2016. Of course there are tones more but these and the ones I’m most looking forward to !
