Top Ten Tuesday – What’s Next in 2016?

Posted November 3, 2015 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 8 Comments

For today’s post topic, I’m discussing the debut authors I’ve read in recent years and their upcoming sophomore novels that I’m eagerly awaiting.

The Girl With All the Gifts definitely got my attention and I immediately wanted anything and everything by this author. Not a true debut author, he wrote The Devil You Know an older series under his full name, but Fellside is the next under M.R. Carey. It sounds incredible.

*swoon* The Wrath and the Dawn is full of swoons. I fell hard for this book, and very unexpectedly too. The Rose and the Dagger is the second book in the duology and after that cliffhanger… I need it. Bad.

I have a serious soft-spot for cute foodie fiction romances and The Coincidence of Coconut Cake hit all the right spots for me. I thought it worked as a standalone but I’ll still definitely pick up her upcoming Luck, Love & Lemon Pie

I feared for a long time that The Devil All the Time was going to be the first and only book by Donald Ray Pollock. My Goodreads stalking finally paid off when I spied his upcoming title, The Heavenly Table, due out in July 2016.

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly was an incredibly impressive retelling of “The Handless Maiden” by the Brothers Grimm. You can read it here which I read before reading Minnow Bly. I don’t know what her next story, The Arsonist, is about but it’s definitely on my TBR.

The Panopticon completely blew me away with its story about juvenile deliquency in Scotland. The Sunlight Pilgrims takes us back to Scotland, but is set in the year 2020, in a future that is eerie in the possibility.

Long Lankin satisfied as a creepy, Gothic standalone so I was surprised yet pleased to hear of a follow-up. The Mark of Cain released in the UK last year but is finally being released in the US this upcoming May.

Bull Mountain was an incredible thrill-ride through the back country of northern Georgia. I had so much fun reading this novel and I cannot wait for the sequel Like Lions.

Like many, I was a huge fan of The Martian (or at least of Mark Watney). Not much has been announced regarding Weir’s next novel, only that it is tentatively-titled Zhek and that it is going to be a more traditional sci-fi story.

Bird Box was incredibly creepy and I loved it. Goodreads lists an upcoming book by Malerman to be published on April 7th 2016 by Harper Voyager. No title or summary yet but I’m already excited.

  1. I don’t usually request sequels to books I haven’t read, but I made an exception with The Mark of Cain, because everything I hear about Long Lankin is so encouraging. And who knows when I would have gotten around to reading it otherwise!

    ALSO I DID NOT KNOW CAREY HAD ANOTHER WRITING NAME. OR ABOUT FELLSIDE. YASSSS. I just heard about Zhek and very much excite.

  2. Great list. You have a few books on here that I have read and enjoyed myself. I think I am also going to have to add a few of these to my Christmas wishlist, it looks like I have missed out on some great debuts recently. I am especially excited to read The Wrath and the Dawn, I have heard so many good things about that one. Here’s my TTT.

  3. OH HOW DID I MISS THAT MR CAREY HAD A NEW BOOK COMING OUT. So sorry to abuse you with caps but this is IMPORTANT. TGWATG was so so good. I can’t wait.

    I also loved MINNOW BLY! The details for The Arsonist are sparse but I already know I am going to be buying a hardcover.

    I feel like we have been waiting for The Mark of Cain for so long! Long Lankin was such a great creepy read.

    Great picks and some new additions to my TBR! Awesome! 😀
