Top Ten of 2015 is hosted by Two Chicks on Books, Fiktshun, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Tales of a Ravenous Reader.
This list was so hard! There are so many non-fantasy books I want, but so many good fantasy books are coming out in 2016 that I changed this list at least 3 times. Agh!
1. Heartless by Marissa Meyer- I will read anything that this woman writes. I am so ready to enter one of her new worlds!
2. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab- I am so excited for Schwab's return to YA! Her adult has taken off and blown my mind, so I can't wait to head back to the age level where I first met her with THE NEAR WITCH way back when.
3. Riders by Veronica Rossi- I loved her UNDER THE NEVER SKY series, so I am excited to check out her fantasy as she takes a break from dystopia.
4. The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson- The last installment in this series needs to be here tomorrow because I need to know what happens! I am so ready for it!
5. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab- I also cannot wait to read the next installment in her A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC series. I mean, Lila, Kell, and Rhys all rock! And that world! Man.
6. The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig- Time traveling pirates!!! Do I need to say anything else?!
7. Remembrance by Meg Cabot- I am so excited for there to be another Mediator novel! And since it is going to be an adult book, that means it is going to blow my mind! Maybe some romance ;)
8. Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan- Sarah read a small bit of this book back in 2014 when she was doing an event with Marie Rutkoski at McNally Jackson and I have been desperate to read it ever since.
9. Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman- I haven't encountered a Blackbeard retelling in years, so I am so ready for this. It looks awesome! Plus, I am in serious cover love with this book too.
10. The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury- I am a sucker for fairytale retellings and have been an avid follower of Khoury's work, so I am so ready for this one! SO READY.
11. Stars Above by Marissa Meyer- I chose not to count novella collections in the above list, but I am so excited for this!
12. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton- I already read this one and it blew my mind, but it deserves a spot on this list because everyone else needs to read it as well! It is so good!!
13. My Lady Jane by Jodi Meadows, Cynthia Hand, and Brodi Ashton- I also didn't include this one because I read it already, but it earned a solid 5 stars from me just like the aforementioned title, so I had to mention it because IT IS SO GOOD TOO! omg
This list was so hard to put together! I hope you enjoy it, and I can't wait to add to my TBR to find other 2016 releases I need but didn't know about just yet. I am so ready for 2016!!!! I just realized there's a lot of retellings on this list! haha
