Top Ten: 2016 Releases I Meant to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was 2016 releases I meant to read but somehow, inexplicably… didn’t. I based this list on my memory and two posts I made last year about my most anticipated releases for the first and second half of 2016.

logo-TopTenTuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was the most anticipated releases for the first half (January through June) of 2016.

I’m getting a little bit better at knowing about new releases – thank you, library job – but I still don’t know about a lot (hence my shortened list!). As to me actually reading any of these next year… well, that’s an entirely different story!
