screen-shot-2017-02-28-at-10-07-31-pm

It’s not Tuesday. I made my own prompt. But I’m doing this anyway! Ha! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Since Top Ten Tuesday will be on hiatus until March 7th, I decided to just make a list of my top 2016 releases that I wished I was able to read, but sadly missed. There were just so many good releases last year and I hope I could catch up on ALL of them this year! Let’s get started!

1.ย The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

28763485

Nicola Yoon is recommended by practically everyone in Book Twitter, in BookTube, even all my blogger friends are so into her works, and I just can’t let this year pass without reading them! ๐Ÿ™‚ When The Sun Is Also A Star was released last year, I fully intended to get a copy and read it right away, howeverย it was Bar Exams month and I just had to put it off for a while. I’m really excited to read this one, though, and I can’t wait! โค

2.ย Walk The Edge by Katie McGarry

17928147

Katie McGarry’s works are probably one of those that are always in my TBR list but never had the chance of reading. It always makes me sad whenever I had to bypass her works, and I intend to remedy that this year. I, however, need to read Nowhere But Here (the first book!) first before getting into Walk The Edge. ๐Ÿ™‚

3.ย Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

This book, guys, this book! I never heard of anything bad about it, just all praises. All praises! The thing is, I don’t KNOW anything about it, too!ย Ha!ย I’ve never had the chance of looking into it’s synopsis in Goodreads, and I think I want it to remain that way. I wanna be surprised and I think this is the book that will best do the job!

4.ย My Lady Janeย by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

22840421.jpg

We all know that Lady Jane Grey never had her happy ending, but this book is just about to change history for her! My Lady Jane gives a comical and entertaining twist on what really happened in the history of England. It’s been a long while since I’ve read something that really made me laugh out loud and I think this might be the next best thing to make me LOL. ๐Ÿ˜€

5.ย P.S. I Like Youย by Kasie West

25486998

Ahhh, Kasie West probably holds one of the top tiers when it comes to writing good YA contemporaries. Her novels are just so fluffy and bright and with a really really good balance of finding oneself while at the same time ย finding the beauty of relationships! โค I can’t wait to get into another one of Kasie West’s pieces and just fall in love again!

6.ย The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

17838528.jpg

So far I have only read one Morgan Matson book, and I know, what am I even doing with my life? I hear ya. And again, this curse is going to be remedied sooner because I ain’t finishing the first half of 2017 without getting The Unexpected Everything in my hands!! I believe this is another Matson book about finding oneself in the midst of everything going haywire. I just love this kind of story lines as I deeply relate to them. Can’t wait! โค

7.ย This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

23299512.jpg

One of my resolutions for last year is to explore and expand to reading the works of V.E. Schwab. I never got the chance, though, and you don’t know how it is frustrating me to my wits end! I want to read V.E. Schwabs works!! I want to so bad that I think something is wrong with me because until now I don’t have any of her books yet! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The frustration is again fired up when July (or August?) last year, she published yet again another book that everybody seems to be loving and raving about! Sigh. Me reading This Savage Song should happen soon!

8.ย Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

21414439-2

The second book of this series has just been released this year and I really wanna get into this world! I have been hearing so many good things about Truthwitch, and it’s going to be a perfect entry for my YA Fantasy challenge this year! ๐Ÿ™‚ Witches and angsty characters? Game on!

9.ย Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

20983362

I’ve not read any Time Travel novel before, and I am honestly intrigued about how they go. Enterย Passenger. I have long been hearing about Alexandra Bracken and The Darkest Minds series (and this is another series I have yet to devour), and I definitely became very very interested when I learned that she’s coming up with a time travel book. I have really high ย expectations for Passenger and I hope it doesn’t disappoint! Plus, guys, this cover! My eyes are feasting! ๐Ÿ™‚

10.ย Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

25494343

The main reason why I have not picked this up is because I have not started with the Mortal Instruments series. I know, guys, what have I been doing with my life, AGAIN!? However, I have read the Infernal Devices, though, and I loved them! ๐Ÿ™‚ This year I am starting with City of Bones, and I hope I could binge read them throughout the year! ๐Ÿ™‚ I definitely can’t wait to get into Lady Midnight after that! Gah, so many books!!!


 

That’s it, guys! I know there are so many good releases from last year that are not in this list! Let’s talk about them below! ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to hear your most anticipated releases in 2016 but were not able to get into! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Personally, I liked TID more than TMI! And, t my surprise, I still haven’t picked up Lady Midnight. I used to be a diehard Clare fan and read her books upon release so I’m not sure why I haven’t started her newest shadowhunter series… but I’m sure that’ll change soon (hopefully). Anyway, fantastic list! Some of these are so great-particularly The Sun is Also a Star; I loved that one.
