A New Year means tons of new books coming out! It is always fun to think about all of the books that we will finally get to read and discover. Below I have compiled a collection of the top 5 books I am most anticipating the release of in each of the following categories: new series, continuing series, stand alone, and novellas/anthologies. Mostly these are young adult novels but adult novels may be mixed in! I did not want to make this post super long so I linked all of the Goodreads pages for each of the books so you can find out more!
All novels are set to have a release date in 2016 at the time I am writing this post.
