2016 Most Anticipated - Suman from HCC Frenzy

Today I love the lovely Suman from Harper Collins Canada stopping by with a guest post about her own Most Anticipated of 2016 list. There are so many books on this list that I am really excited about!

Suman’s Most Anticipated Books of 2016

Posts like this are so, so, so difficult. How does one pick just a few titles out of all the great books coming out next year? It was a pretty stressful process, honestly. Anywho, below are six books that I’m so excited for you all to read, in order of their on sale date:

1. Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley (1/5/16)

Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Brontë siblings have always been inseparable. After all, nothing can bond four siblings quite like life in the middle of nowhere. In their spare time they use their vivid imaginations to write pages and pages of stories set in two created worlds: Verdopolis and Gondal. The twist? They’re able to transport themselves into these worlds and interact with the characters they’ve written. As Branwell begins to descend into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they will have to weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations as the characters they’ve created refuse to let them go. 

What I love most about Worlds of Ink and Shadow is that it has something for every reader. If you enjoy historical fiction, fantasy, world-building, feminism, writing, classic literature and, well, books, you should absolutely add this to your TBR.

2. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard (2/9/16)

This is the sequel to Red Queen. Do I even need to say anything else? I probably should: Glass Sword follows Mare as she sets out to find and recruit other hybrid Red-and-Silver fighters and attempts to stay one step ahead of a Maven (ugh, that traitor!). I was lucky enough to get an ARC (I might have, maybe stolen it from our sales director), but haven’t started it yet because I want to wait until you all read it so that we can talk about all the twists that I’m sure Victoria’s written. I already know we’re going to love this book as much as Red Queen.

3. The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight (5/3/16)

The Outliers kept surprising me in the best possible way. It all starts with a text: “Please, Wylie, I need your help”. Wylie hasn’t heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie’s in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself. From the bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia this is the first book in a fast-paced teen series where one girl learns that in a world of intrigue, betrayal, and deeply buried secrets, it’s vital to trust your instincts. Fans of thrillers, mysteries, and stories that explore the dynamic between friends will love this one. Also: The Outliers has already been optioned for film!

4. Unrivaled by Alyson Noel (5/10/16)

Unrivaled is the latest book from internationally bestselling author Alyson Noel! It’s also the first book in a suspenseful trilogy where the high-stakes competition of The Selection meets the seductive world of L.A.’s nightlife.  Every character in Unrivaled has a secret and something to lose, especially Madison Brooks, Hollywood’s hottest starlet. When Layla, Aster, and Tommy find themselves with a VIP invite to the glamorous and gritty world of Los Angeles’s elite, they’re lured into a competition where Madison is the target. This is a must-read for fans of Pretty Little Lairs, L.A. Candy, and Gossip Girl.

5. Sing by Vivi Greene (6/7/16)

This book is going to be the perfect summer read (Lauren Conrad meets Katie Cotugno? YES PLEASE, THANK YOU). In Sing, America’s biggest pop star flees the spotlight and heads to Maine to recover from her latest breakup, only to fall head-over-heels for a local boy and be faced with an impossible decision: her new guy, or her music. If you love contemporary fiction, you’re definitely going to want to read this. Plus, look at that cover! I’m absolutely obsessed with it.

6. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (6/7/16)

Victoria Schwab’s latest book is a fast-paced adventure that looks at the monsters we face every day—including the monster within. As the heirs to opposing sides in the warring city of Verity, Kate Harker and Augustus Flynn should never have met. However, when Kate discovers August’s secret, the pair find themselves running for their lives and battling the monsters that have overrun their city. As Verity dissolves into chaos, it’s up to them to foster a peace between monsters and humans. This Savage Song is a beautifully written Romeo and Juliet-esque fantasy about the difference between good and evil and the blurry gray area in between. I promise that you won’t be able to put this book down. I certainly couldn’t!
