Top Ten Tuesday: Six of my Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year (2016)

Top Ten Tuesday is a Meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish  This week's Top Ten Tuesday is Ten of my Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year (2016)

So I picked six books that I really want to read over the next several months, which might be a bit of a challenge cause the majority are publishing in August through October, why does it need to be during Cybils?  I'm just going to have to get creative to sneak these all in.  

290560831.  Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling expected publication July 31st 2016

This seemed like an easy choice for me, I've adored all the other books and I always enjoy any new content that Rowling's comes up with on her Pottermore site.  


 2.  The Creeping Shadow (Lockwood and Co. #4) by Jonathan Stroud expected publication September 13th 2016

Stroud is one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to delve back into London, ghost hunting, see what is happening with Lucy and Lockwood and Company.  


3.  Mabel Jones and the Doomsday Book by Will Mabbitt expected publication October 4th 2016

I've become quite fond of Mabel Jones and her madcap adventures.  There is something about Mabbitt's humor and Ross Collins illustrations that I find so entertaining to read.  

4.  Cloud and Wallfish by Anne Nesbet expected publication October 4th 2016

This sounds like a fascinating historical fiction, which I'm always on the lookout for me and my kiddo to read.  I'm also interested in the main character who has a stutter and the way the author chooses to describe it.  


5.  Nevernight by Jay Kristoff expected publication August 9th 2016
This one is a YA Fantasy where a "fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family." Yeah and the authors says he threw in some blood magic and living shadows, yep sounds intriguing.  


6.  Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo expected publication September 27th 2016

Six of Crows was one of my favorite book reads with my kiddo last year.  I'm really looking forward to learning more about Wylan's story.  Lovely setting, writing and characters.  

So, what books made it on your most anticipated list?  Feel free to share your link in the comments.  


  1. Lots of good looking ones here! 'Nevernight' looks very intriguing. I've got to catch up on Lockwood & Company too!

    1. It's not as YA as I originally thought (Nevernight), but yes still very intriguing.

  2. I need to check out the Mabel Jones series! It looks fun :) My TTT

    1. It's lighthearted and I adore the illustrations. Thanks for commenting.

  3. Oh my goodness! I forgot Cloud and Wallfish when I made my list.

    1. I know that feeling, I always find a few on others post that I missed. I picked 6 so I might have a chance to get to them before Cybils :)

  4. Nice list! I'm also really excited for the new H.P. I read all the books as they came out, so it's time for a re-read of the whole series. Have you seen the illustrated SORCERER'S STONE? It's gorgeous!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  5. Great, great list. I'm especially dying to read The Cursed Child + Crooked Kingdom. I hope you enjoy all of these. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier. :)

  6. I am so excited for every and each book on your list especially Jonathan Stroud's new books and for sure The Cursed Child...

  7. I am planning to read The Cursed Child- though I do have slightly mixed feelings about it. I am a crazy HP fan and I of course look forward to reading more from JK Rowling about the wizarding world. The format is so different, so I am a little nervous about how I will feel about it- but I guess I will know in less than a month. :)
