2016 YA Releases I'm Looking Forward To


18 YA Books That Release in 2016


Yes, yes. I know what you're saying. That's a LOT of books! But since when have I ever been able to narrow things down?

This Savage Song by Victoria SchwabWhen We Collided by Emery LordTruthwitch by Susan Dennard


This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. Okay, so no, I haven't read anything Schwab has published, but ALL of her books sound so good, and if A Darker Shade of Magic is as good as everyone says it is, I will be reading this one! I mean, sci-fi/fantasy that involves battling monsters? Yes, please.

When We Collided by Emery Lord. Because I don't read a lot of contemporaries, and this one is supposed to be deep and beautiful and lovely. *sigh*

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. Why is this on my to-read list, you ask? Because it's supposed to embody all that is EPIC. Or so I've heard. And it's already been published! *squeals*



Three Wishes by Lisa T. Bergren. *stifles screams* This series branches off the River of Time series and my heart almost can't take it. Also, time traveling. Need I say more?

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer. I am obsessed with the Lunar Chronicles. Gimme those stories!

The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh. The Wrath and the Dawn was lovely.




Beyond the Red by Ava Jae. ALIENS. I don't read enough books with ALIENS.

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker. I'm sorry, but Historical Fantasy?? Jane Austen meets X-Men?? That gets PRIORITY.

The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye. Because 1. Russian culture and 2. MAGIC.

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton. Mythical beast. Twu wuv. Oh yeah, and more magic!

The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig. Sci-fi. Fantasy. A time traveling ship!

Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill. A girl who tracks criminals. A dangerous quest. And murder. *gasp*



Heartless by Marissa Meyer. It doesn't have a cover yet, but obviously I couldn't leave this one out because 1) It's about the Queen of Hearts and 2) Marissa Meyer, the queen of all authordom! Yes, that is a word...

The Crown by Kiera Cass. *grips heart* *staggers around* *faints* Yeah, I just want that dress. AND TO READ THIS BOOK!

The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows. After the perfection that was The Orphan Queen? I think SO.



Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman. Let's see...more Historical Fantasy!!! (I LOVE this trend!) And Blackbeard. That's a no-brainer, people.

Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers. It's like Romeo and Juliet. With Assassins.

The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson. She writes sweet, clean fairy tale retellings, and I always get caught up in them!

That's what I'm looking forward to in 2016! Are you excited for any of these titles? What are you looking forward to in 2016? Aaand, what's your favorite book cover from the above?

  1. You have some good looking reads here! I'm curious about "Truthwitch," wondering why if it's actually worth all the hype. "Stars Above" is a must, as is "Three Wishes." Gotta love the Lunar Chronicles and the River of Time. "The Beautiful Pretender" is by Melanie Dickerson, and, as I try to read everything by Melanie Dickerson, it's certainly on my TBR list. And I still want to read "The Orphan Queen" and "The Wrath and the Dawn," so if I like those, I believe I'll want the sequels you've mentioned, too. :-D


    The cover for "Heartless" was revealed recently, I think on Entertainment Weekly. If you do a quick search, I think you could find it.

    1. I hope it's worth the hype! It sounds very intriguing. I'm glad to hear that you loved the River of Time! Those are some of my favorites and I wish more people knew about them! :)

      Yeah, this post was scheduled, so the cover wasn't published at the time I was writing this, but now I know! Thanks, Grace! (Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the cover they revealed... Do you have any thoughts?)

This Savage Song, The Rose & The Dagger, Stars Above and Heartless are definitely ALL ones I'm waiting on too^^ I'm honestly so excited for all of them, I almost can't stand myself :D I still need to read The Orphan Queen though but every time I see the cover for Mirror King, I'm reminded that I MUST catch up asap!

  3. I am so interested in Stars Above. I WANT TO KNOW WHO WILL GET MARRIED. I WANT TO KNOW SO BADLY. My guess is Winter and Jacin but I can hope that it will be another couple who I might enjoy more. Also, I've read Beyond the Red, and it was super good, and I hope that you enjoy it, too! :D

      I'm glad to hear that! It sounds super interesting.
