Top Ten (Late) 2016 Releases

This week's topic at The Broke and the Bookish is your "most anticipated releases for the second half of the year." I actually have several books that I'm looking forward to, so here are my top ten:

1. The Spinner and the Slipper by Camryn Lockhart


I've been looking forward to this book ever since I first heard of it through Rooglewood Press's newsletter. A Rumpelstiltskin/Cinderella mashup? Count me in!

2. Five Magic Spindles by various authors


Speaking of Rooglewood press....the Sleeping Beauty Collection is coming soon! I really can't wait for this one!

3. The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof


I've not yet read any of Joanne Bischof's novels, but she's been on my to-read list for a very long time, and the circus-y theme of this book is very appealing to me.

4. Heartless by Marissa Meyer


A new book by Lunar Chronicles author Marissa Meyer, I'm not quite as excited about this one on the list as the others because I've never been a big Alice-in-Wonderland person. However, I'm still interested and will probably check this one out from the library.

5. Ghostly Echos by William Ritter


This series was a surprise hit for me! They're actually secular YA paranormal books, which are NOT my usual reading material. However, the previous two books were funny, clever, and largely clean, so I'm really excited for this one.

6. A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay


I've enjoyed Katherine Reay's other books, so I'm hoping this one will be just as good as Dear Mr. Knightley.

7. The Shattered Vigil by Patrick W. Carr


I got the first book in this series for Christmas, and while it was little overlong, it was fascinating and intricate. 

8. The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen


I'm a longtime reader of Julie Klassen, and I'm really excited for this one, since this author has never done a series before. I'm curious if it will feel "different" than her other books.

9. The Star Bell by Stephanie Ricker


This book came out last month (so I suppose it's technically from the first half of this year) but I still haven't read it yet. A Cinder's Tale was one of my favorite stories in the Five Glass Slippers anthology, and I'm so glad that Stephanie Ricker is still writing about the characters!

And...I could only think of nine. probably because most of the books on my to-read list right now aren't "new".... or they aren't coming out until 2017. Still, I would say this is a pretty good list :)

Ha ha -- I love Mulan :) The songs are so addicting. Now I'm going to have the "Let's get down to business" song stuck in my head for the rest of the night. Probably the whole week!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to HEARTLESS, too. I haven't heard of any of the other books you mentioned, but I have heard good things about Julie Klassen. I'll have to give her a go. The cover of THE INNKEEPER OF IVY HILL is sooo pretty.

Happy TTT!

I'm also looking forward to A Portrait of Emily Price and Five Magic Spindles (although I forgot about that one when I was making my list), and I'm about to read The Star Bell. I hadn't heard of most of the other books on your list, but some of them look intriguing.
