Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

 This week's topic is: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016

*in no particular order


1. YELLOW BRICK WAR by Danielle Paige--cannot wait to see how this series wraps up! It's so twisted, but in a good way!
2. THE LAST STAR by Rick Yancey--been waiting for what feels like forever for this one!! A bit of delay in the publishing for whatever reasons, but at least it's finally almost here!
3. THE BEAUTY OF DARKNESS by Mary E. Pearson--looooove this series!! It's so good and it continues to reel me in with each book! This one might kill me...or the wait for it will!
4. FOREST OF RUIN by Kelley Armstrong--always looking forward to one of Kelley's books!! This series has been really good so far too! Cannot wait to see how it all ends!


5. A COURT OF MIST AND FURY by Sarah J. Maas--I ADORED ACOTAR!! It's the SJM book I've been waiting for!! And I loved it oh so completely!
6. INTO THE FIRE by Jeaniene Frost--the final Vlad book!! No cover or description sadly, but now it looks like it won't be coming out until the end of October vs the summer which is what it's "description" currently says. Sigh...
7. THE SWEETEST BURN by Jeaniene Frost--loved The Beautiful Ashes, though I read it as an ARC and I am delaying my getting of this one for reasons, so yeah...the wait is killing me!
8. THE SHADOW HOUR by Melissa Grey--loved her debut of TGAM it was amazing! So I am definitely looking forward to this one!
9. THE MERCILESS II by Danielle Vega--a happy surprise that her first standalone will now have a sequel! This should be creepy and epic!


10. THE GREAT HUNT by Wendy Higgins--while the author isn't a debut, this is a new read from her! I am unsure just yet if it's a standalone or not, but with a Beauty and the Beast theme towards it, I'm already hooked!



  1. That actually sounds like a really interesting teaser. I was very disapointed in Alice in Zombieland so I'm always hesitant with the rest of her work.
    Here's my Teaser

    As for your TTT - I also can't wait for A Court of Mist and Fury. Looks like we're in for a great year! :D My TTT

  2. Hope you enjoying your book and your anticipated reads look pretty good too. :)

    My teaser

  3. I have The Great Hunt on my eARC stack. It is available at Edelweiss. Great teaser, by the way. Mine come from The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine and Haunting Investigation by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro which are both from my review stack. Happy reading!

  4. I'm excited about The Last Star, but since I've been dragging my feet on reading The Infinite Sea I haven't hit normal excitement levels yet.

    I haven't seen a Teaser Tuesday before, but now I kind of want to participate in that in the future.

    My TTT

    My TTT

  12. What a poignant teaser. I really like it, and now what to know more about the book. Always a good sign. :-) I've been wanting to read something by Showalter for some time now as it is.

    So many great books coming out! Seeing your mention of Frost's new books has reminded me I have been wanting to read more of her earlier books for some time now. The Great Hunt is on my list of books I want to read. And of course I adore Kelley Armstrong.
