Gwen’s Most Anticipated Book Releases in 2016

Books I can’t wait for in 2016! Young Adult in genre, these books are a mix of author and series debuts along with series continuations, ordered by release date. Enjoy! (Books with an asterisk (*) next to the title means I’m extra excited!!)

Edit: Even better than my list is this lengthy list from Barnes & Noble: 26 Most Anticipated Fantasy Novels of 2016 (or their Contemporary Fiction novels list if that’s your thing–or their list of awesome lists!). Highly recommended! Also got me excited about these books I’m adding to my list:

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (January 5)

The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine (January 5)

Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake (Library Jumpers #1) (January 5)
