Impatiently Waiting (2016 Releases That I NEED!)

I've been writing this type of post for three years now at the beginning of the new year.  There is just something about the new year and ALL of the books that will be releasing soon that gets me pumped up!  2016 is already starting off with a bang as Mira Grant has a new book being released in the Newsflesh series this year!!!!  I am SO excited that I cannot even stand it!!!  I LOVE these books!  I cannot even contain my excitement here.  Last year I didn't manage to read as many of the books on this list as I had hoped to so this year I'm going to have to change that.  There are just so many books and so little time!  Here are the books that I am already making grabby hands for:

Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton - A NEW books by Sharon Bolton!?!  I didn't even have to read the description before I was adding this one to my list.  I add a books of hers to my list every year- she is hands down of my favorite authors.  Want! Want! Want!

River Road by Carol Goodman - I have enjoyed EVERY book that I have read by this author so I couldn't help but be excited about her newest book.  And I actually was approved for a copy of this one (before my NetGalley ban) so you can bet I will be reading it very soon.  Can't wait!

City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong - A new series by Armstrong?  I NEED it!!  And it is a mystery series which makes me want to read it even more!  I cannot even right now.  Sigh.  I will be reading this one ASAP!

Butterfly in the Dark by Gilly Macmillan - This author's debut novel made my top reads list of 2015 so of course I'm adding this one to my wishlist!  And it sounds so good which makes me even more excited to read it!!

Ink and Bone by Lisa Under - There are SO many thrillers that I want to read in 2016 but this cover has me seriously lusting after this book!  It looks so creepy and I just cannot wait to read it!!

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard - This books seems to be all over the blogsphere lately but for good reason if this book is as good as it sounds.  I cannot wait to find out for myself!  Plus it doesn't hurt that it has such a gorgeous cover either!!

Unhinge by Calia Read - I basically read that this one was set in a mental institution and added it to my TBR wishlist that fast!  It seems to be part of a series though so I will need to get my hands on the first book as well.  I'm excited to read them both!!

Little Boy Blue by M.J. Arlidge - Basically I have a goal to read all of the books in this series in 2016!  This will be the fifth book in this mystery series and I'm already chomping at the bit to get my hands on it!  So excited for this series!

Forevermore by Kristen Callihan - I just started reading this series in 2015 but I can't help but pine for this newest one.  I am hoping to read all of the books in this series as well in 2016.  I have big plans for my reading this year!

Bitter Bite by Jennifer Estep - I actually have a copy of this one for my kindle and I just adore the cover for it!  Yes another series that I am planning on catching up with in 2016.  (Are you sensing a trend yet? LOL!)

I could keep going and going but I'm forcing myself to stop at this point.  Rest assured that I will continue posting about other books that I am excited to read in my on the radar/wishlist posts.  There are just so many!  I can't even begin...seriously...I am pumped for 2016!  I will include really quickly a few books that would be listed above but they don't have covers quite yet:
  • Rewind by Mira Grant (this is THE book that I want to read MOST in 2016)!
  • The Ghost Rebellion by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris (love this series so much!)
  • Grilled For Murder by Maddie Day (cozy series that I want to continue on with)
  • Nine of Stars by Laura Bickle (another series I adore)
And so many more!  Tell me, what books are you looking forward to reading in 2016?  I would love to know!


  1. Unhinge is on my list also, reading as soon as it is released, I actually bought it already, so can't wait for it to show up. Unravel was amazing, here is my review if interested.

    Lisa Unger is on my list also. I read my first Kelly Armstrong in Dec, I enjoyed it, would love for her to write adult thrillers.

    I want to try Sharon Bolton more, I have only read 1 book by her.

    Exciting post...........


    My review of Unravel, forgot to attach it sorry

  3. Sharon Bolton and Gilly Macmillan and M.J. Arlidge and on and on. But I have the 'read from my own shelves' quest. Sigh. Love this and am glad to know about a bunch of these. There will always be plenty of books for me to read, right?

  4. Several of these are on my wish list, Melody. I would love to read them too. Sharon Bolton, of course, and Truthwitch is one I plan to buy if I can't get it at the library when it comes out. River Road also looks good and Butterfly in the Dark. So many great sounding books coming out!

    1. Sorry, Samantha. I have Melody on my brain at the moment, I think.

  5. We are working hard in making The Ghost Rebellion happen. Look for cover reveals and teasers this Spring! :^) And thank you for the mention!

  6. Oh my gosh, I want most of the books you listed here, Sam! I've to admit I almost squeaked loudly in delight after hearing that Sharon Bolton and Kelley Armstrong will have their new books out soon! :-)

  7. I'm like you-- I see a new book by Sharon Bolton, and I immediately add it to my list. I love her books!

  8. Oh gosh so many of these sound so great! Very excited about the Bolton and Goodman books. You are right, sometimes there are authors you don't even have to read the description of their book you just know that whatever they put out will be good!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
