Top Ten Tuesday: 2016 Releases we MEANT to get to

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

We are back at it in 2017 and excited for our first Top Ten Tuesday of the year. This is definitely one of our favorite memes to be a part of. We get to talk about all kinds of books and all of the bookish things all while connecting with other bloggers that may like the exact same things.

With it being a new year we are now looking at a whole batch of new releases that we are definitely excited for. So many books to be excited for, and not enough time to read them. This is a problem all book lovers face every single year, and 2016 was no different. Here are some 2016 releases we had totally meant to read during 2016 but didn’t (and will definitely try to tackle in 2017).


Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton | Passenger by Alexandra Bracken | A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro | The Beauty in Darkness by Mary E Pearson | The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye | Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco | The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig | Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven | Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch | Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

There are SO many books that I missed in 2016 and want to get to, but this is the top 10 that I would like to knock out first!


Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson | Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch | The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye | Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo | Dominion by John Connolly and Jennifer Ridyard | The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi | The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh | Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton | The Midnight Star by Marie Lu | The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

I didn’t even get to half of the 2016 releases that I wanted to! I hope I can knock out most of these this year along with the 2017 books I want to read!

QUESTION: What are some 2016 releases that you missed out on last year?

      I read the synopsis last year and it sounded soooo good! And then when I saw that cover I fell even more in love! It’s one of those books I will probably have to buy the hard copy of the book because I love the cover so much haha


  1. Ohhh, The Rose and the Dagger and Rebel of the Sands! TRATD is so so amazing. An amazing conclusion to the duology. I’ve been eyeing Rebel more and more recently (especially since I’m loving the cover revamps). Guess that will go on my list now too! Hahah. Great selections! 🙂

      Yes I can’t wait to read The Rose and the Dagger! I know Emily has already read it so it definitely is on top of my to read list!


  2. *sobbing* There are SO MANY books I didn’t get to read in 2016! And, as always, I’m pretty sure I obtained more than I read. I am so ashamed. How did this happen? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!?!?! As it so happens, I didn’t read any of these either and a bunch of them just went on my “search for at library” list. WHY AM I LIKE THIS???

    1. I also LOVED Crooked Kingdom, and actually just sent it down to Arika so HOPEFULLY she can read it soon! I am so excited for The Girl From Everywhere and am sad that I didn’t get to it last year. But it’s sitting on my shelf just begging to be read, so hopefully soon!
