[WEEKLY MUSING] 2016 Releases I Can't Wait to Read


I usually post my weekly musings on Sundays but I didn't open my laptop (or maybe barely open it) since my Christmas vacation started. I've been so busy with wrapping my and my mom's gifts and buying them - definitely tiring but certainly one of my fave things about Christmas.

In my last weekly musing post, I shared books I'd like to read before the year ends. I'm currently reading Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas and I'm really loving it. I do see why everyone likes it more than the first book - the development that's going on around Celaena, Chaol, and Dorian is crazy. While I think my ship just sunk, I think that I'll still enjoy this series.

Anyway, here are books I'd really LOVE to get my hands on and immediately read once they are released this 2016:

Morning Star (Red Rising #3) by Pierce Brown. Golden Son ended in a cliffhanger - I mean just how did Darrow and Mustang ended there? And Fitchner!! And bloodydamn everything else!! ugh. I really just have a major NEED to read this book already!
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Ruta Sepetys is an auto-buy author for me. When I found out that she'll have a new novel more so that it's a WWII novel, I knew I should read it. Between Shades of Gray was a heartbreaking but lovely read. With that in mind, I'm sure this one will be as good or hopefully even better.
Stone Field by Christy Lenzi. Saw this on a WoW post a few months back and found out that it's a Wuthering Heights Retelling which is one of the few non-Agatha Christie classics I've read and liked.
The Last Star (the 5th Wave #3) by Rick Yancey. The Infinite Sea was full of revelations that I'm still quite confused about. This final book will obviously clear everything and hopefully will have a satisfying ending.
Stars Above (the Lunar Chronicles Novella Collection) by Marissa Meyer. I still haven't read Winter. I know, I suck. My local bookstores suck. Anyway, while my three of my paperback books have three of the novellas that will be featured here, I still haven't read them (I feel so weird for not reading them).

This is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang. While I wasn't fond of her book, Falling Into Place, being quite similar to a couple of others in the same genre, it still moved me. It made me want to read her future books which starts with this one.
Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard. While I wasn't that fond of the first book, I still enjoyed it. I like the world. I like Cal and Maven. I like the climax. I'm still really excited to read this next book and see how things will go.
The Steep & Thorny Way by Cat Winters. I've only read Cat Winter's In the Shadow of Blackbirds. I still can't find her other books on local books (ugh). The blurb really caught my attention - historical fiction, white woman x African-American man daughter, the Ku Klux Klan, that twist on her father's death.. just how can this get more interesting?
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. The cover reminded me of The Queen of Tearling for a while there because of the border and lettering style. ANYWAY, when I came across inspired by Indian mythology, I just got excited because I haven't read anything based on Indian myth (and admittedly, I've never read anything Indian Mythology stories.. or maybe I have.. maybe two..). And I just found out that the author is actually half-Indian and half-Filipina!!
Firstlife by Gena Showalter. I've only read around three novels by Gena Showalter and I'm pretty sure she has A LOT. She's more of an 'okay' author for me but when I read Firstlife's blurb, I got really interested.

Books Without Final Covers (and titles)
Memento Mori by Amy Zhang.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer. After reading Cinder, Marissa Meyer just became an insta-read. Her humor, her characters, her romance, her world, and her writing!!
Untitled (Cormoran Strike #4) by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). The ending of Career of Evil was really crazy. How things will proceed between Strike and Robin really intrigues me. And after each novel, Rowling writes a more thrilling, elaborate, and grotesque crime-mysteries.
The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares was a really sweet and cute romance. I had fun reading it and the ending made me want more of Dash and Lily's relationship. So when I found out about this, I knew I must read it!
