Since the beginning of the year, I have been looking forward to so many books that are coming out in 2016. Narrowing it down to my Top 5 might just kill me, so this is the second post of this series. I posted the first post yesterday.
Endure is the third book in the Defy series, and although I have not actually read the second book, Ignite, I am so excited for it. I will be ordering both Endure and Ignite from Book Depository, early next year, or before Christmas. I have already posted a description of Defy, on another post. Go check it out for more information about it.
The covers for these books are so cool, I think that is partly what made me want to read it in the first place. Defy’s cover reminded me of Red Queen, which I loved. I have also ordered Ignite (#2) for Christmas, and will pre-order Endure.
The Siren was written by Kiera Cass, author of one of my favourite series, The Selection.
Once again, the cover is gorgeous, and it really makes me want to read and own it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out for 53 days!
The Siren is about a girl, Kahlen, who is a Siren. She is bound to serve the Ocean by luring humans to watery graves with her voice, which is deadly to any human who hears it. Akinli is human—a kind, handsome boy who’s everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. Falling in love puts them both in danger . . . but Kahlen can’t bear to stay away. Will she risk everything to follow her heart? (Goodreads Description)
6. See How They Run by Ally Carter
See How They Run is the second book in the Embassy Row series. I read the first one, All Fall Down, in one day. I was on holidays, and had nothing to do, but it was such a fast-paced book, that I hated to put it down.
Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:
1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.
As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her — so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.
Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace — no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to haunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down. (Goodreads description)
