I've been eagerly anticipating a few books this year, some of which I've already read and reviewed, like Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare and Love Song by Sophia Bennett, both long-term favourite authors of mine. But there are more to come that I am very excited about, and they are...
Summer Days and Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins
2nd June 2016 | Buy the book
I believe this is the summer version of Perkins' festive YA anthology, My True Love Gave to Me. It boasts short stories from Leigh Bardugo, Nina LaCour, Libba Bray, Francesca Lia Block, Tim Federle, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovran, Brandy Colbert, Cassandra Clare, Jennifer E. Smith, Lev Grossman and Stephanie Perkins herself. I have to admit, I haven't come across most of these authors before, but nonetheless I'm excited (especially for Perkins, Roth and Clare).
Ride by Lisa Glass
16th June 2016 | Buy the book
These books are perfect for summer and when I read the second book in the trilogy last year, it was clear how much growing up the characters had done. I don't usually notice such character development so I'm looking forward to 'meeting' them again and, I guess, catching up.
The Moonlight Dreamers by Siobhan Curham
7th July 2016 | Buy the book
What a gorgeous name for a book! Siobhan Curham has long been a favourite writer of mine and if you haven't ready any of her books, I highly recommend that you do. I don't know a lot about this one but I do know it celebrates friendship and I'm so happy we're seeing more and more of this in YA. ❤
Did I Mention I Miss You? by Estelle Maskame
28th April 2016 | Buy the book
If you've read this post or this post, you'll know that the DIMILY trilogy is one of my absolute favourites. Sadly, Did I Mention I Miss You? is the last one, but I'm so excited to find out how Tyler and Eden's story comes to an end. It'll break my heart, I'm sure, but I'll be fine. *crosses fingers*
All About the Hype by Paige Toon
28th July 2016 | Buy the book
Another end to another trilogy, this one being the Jessie Jefferson books by Paige Toon. I find that books about how the 'other half' lives are the best for escapism, and that's one of the many reasons I have enjoyed this journey so much.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany
31st July 2016 | Buy the book
How could I not put this on here? I happened to be on Twitter the second this book was announced and I pre-ordered it instantly. The excitement is real. (And a few weeks before this is published, I plan to see the show!)
Cuckoo by Keren David

What's a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne
1st August 2016 | Buy the book
The Secret City by C.J. Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld
