Sixteen More 2016 Reads

I'm so excited to share sixteen additional 2016 releases I'm anticipating! If this is your first time visiting my blog, last year, I had a three-part series about Fifteen 2015 Reads and each post featured...fifteen YA titles releasing in 2015. I knew I'd have to continue it, so back in February, the first Sixteen 2016 Reads post went live. 
This time, I tried to divide it by genre, but that was a bit tricky since many of the books don't have a genre on Goodreads yet and some of their blurbs may be a bit vague. So for this Sixteen 2016 Reads post, I'm going to do short little pitches (basically just the Goodreads blurbs, but still).



Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton
A standalone novel about a recent scholarship recipient who sets out to expose debauchery at her exclusive private school in Washington, D.C., only to find herself falling in love with the baddest boy of all.

Breaker by Kat Ellis
An executed serial killer's son enrolls in a new school and finds himself drawn to a girl in his class - only to discover she is the daughter of his father's last victim.

Into The Dim by Janet Taylor
Being “the home-schooled girl” in a small town, Hope Walton’s crippling phobias and photographic memory don’t endear her to her dad's perfectly blond, very Southern family. When her mother is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world implodes. After being shipped off to an aunt she's never met, Hope learns there's more to her mother's "death" than she ever dreamed. At her aunt's manor, high in the Scottish Highlands, Hope begins to unravel the shocking truth about her family. Her mom isn't just a brilliant academic. She’s a member of a secret society of time travelers, and is currently trapped in the twelfth century in the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. To stage a rescue, the sheltered teen must join the Indiana Jones-wannabe team of time-jumpers, before her mother is lost for good. In a brutal, medieval world, Hope will discover more family secrets, and a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free…or the very key to Hope’s undoing.

  4. Several of these are on my TBR list as well- especially Stolen Crowns #1. (Which we still don't have a title for, I don't think . . . whyyyyyy.) I will have to check out some of these that I didn't notice before for some reason.

    1. No title for it yet. If it still comes out in 2016, it'll probably be the fall. I hope it doesn't get pushed back to 2017. :(
