As usual, TTT is brought to you courtesy of The Broke and the Bookish.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes last Tuesday, everyone! Y’all were more well-wishing than my family, friends, and coworkers put together!
Okay, so this week I’m doing the Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016, but with a twist. These will be books I’ve already read, and I’m excited about them being available to all of you! (I have to do it this way, because I don’t really ‘look ahead’ for books.) These are in order of release date.
Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016
Prince of Nightmares by John McNee – You don’t have to wait long for this one! Last I looked the release date was Jan 1, 2016! You can see my review of the ARC I received from Negalley here. This was an interesting work with a main character that was outside the normal realms for horror books.
Death Do Us Part by J.G. Faherty – Now, this is a short story, and one that’s only going to appeal to a subset of you that like campy horror (such as what was so gleefully delivered in Tales from the Crypt. I absolutely loved it, and it came up in my queue to read right after I’d read some not so great works, so it was a double blessing for me. You can read my review here, and Death Do Us Part is due to be released Jan 5, 2016.
The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie – My review on this one doesn’t roll out until January 7th, but I can tell you it was indeed a great read with a diverse main character, and it left me with an overwhelming desire to be a sea monster trainer in my next life! This one is due to be released Feb 8, 2016! – update: review here –
Our Moon by Elaine Scott – This was an awesome read. I got it thinking that it would be one that I could read with Miss L, since she’s interested in Astronomy. Unfortunately it was a little too advanced for her. However, even though it’s aimed at kids ages 9-12, I really enjoyed reading this, and think the author has a serious talent for relating information in a way that puts you right there. -update: review here –
Buy me now on Amazon.
Northwoods by Bill Schweigart – Considering that Beast of Barcroft, the first book in this series, appeared on my Top 10 “Scifi and Scary Reads of 2015”, it should come as no surprise that I loved Northwoods, and I hope lots of you decide to give it a try (though, seriously, read Beast of Barcroft first!) – update: review here –
On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis – See my review of this awesome book featuring an autistic main character, written by the co-founder of Disability in Kid Lit, here . On the Edge of Gone is post-apocalyptic scifi with an interesting twist at the end that you have to read. It is due for release March 8, 2016
…okay, so that’s only six, but its a really good six!
Can’t wait to see everyone else’s! —- Side note, everyone has these beautifully-covered Fantasy and YA books on their list, and I’m over here like “Horror, horror, scifi, MOON! horror, post-apocalyptic”. ……Ah well, I’m used to being the odd one out! LMAO!
