Anticipated Releases January 2016

(As you may remember, last year, I did one big "anticipated releases" post for 2015. And I had to keep adding to it throughout the year. So, I figured I could start doing it by month.)

I know it's already about halfway through January, but I just finished A Game of Thrones, so I wasn't even thinking about other books for a while there (It was so good!). And there are so many cool books coming out this month! I'm very excited for many of them, and I hope I get the chance to pick up a few.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Release Date: January 5, 2016
This is a fantasy YA about people born with magical skills in a fantasy land. Pretty basic. But the powers sound so cool. You've got a Truthwitch, who can tell truths from lies, and a Threadwitch, who can see the ties that "bind and entangle the lives around her." There are a few others, but from the synopsis, it looks like those are the main characters. I'm excited for this because some fantasy novels fall into the trap of using vague magic powers as a deus ex machina. With such specific powers, I'm interested to see where this one goes.

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
Release Date: January 5, 2016
All right. I don't know much about this book (just that it involves time travel). I've heard that's a good way to go into it, too, so hopefully it works. I just know I really enjoyed this author's The Darkest Minds, so I'm excited for this one.

Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira
Release Date: January 12, 2016
This is about a sixteen-year old who loves YA books. When she finds out a guy might like her, she decides to look to her favorite heroines for life advice. Doesn't that sound hilarious and fantastic? It sounds like it's written for book lovers and shy/quiet book lovers, too, who'd rather be reading about life than having to go through it themselves--and I'm all for that.

The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
Release Date: January 26, 2016
Okay, okay, listen. Regency London. But with a demon-hunter. Need I say more? Didn't think so.

Once Upon a Kiss by Robin Palmer
Release Date: January 5, 2016
I'm such a sucker for Robin Palmer books. Even if I pretend I'm too cool for them, I'll read them all, multiple times. And this one's about a girl from 1986 who ends up in 2016 (you should know I'm also a sucker for time-travel, especially when the explanation for it in the synopsis is "a freak Fun-Dip choking accident"). How could I refuse this book?

Again, I'm really excited for the books coming out this month--there is nothing more exciting to me than the idea of a new idea, a new book to read, and new characters to love! Happy reading, everyone.
