Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016 / Top Ten Tuesday #48

Hello & welcome to this week's Top Ten Tuesday, and the last one for 2015. This week's topic is one I'm really excited about. Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016. My previous Top Ten Tuesday post was, Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree.

This upcoming year is going to be an amazing year for YA book releases! This post is only for the first half of the 2016, and it was next to impossible for me to only list 10 books let alone the 20+ books I listed below. I'm really looking forward to reading these books below, and many others coming out in 2016. Some of these books I've already got sitting at the very top of my TBR lists. Now that I've shared this list, I can start reading them. *Look for upcoming blog tours and reviews to come soon*.
