So grab a cup of hot coco, pop a squat and have your Goodreads page open because you certainly don't want to miss these hot new releases hitting the shelves in the next few months!


FIRSTS BY LAURIE ELIZABETH FLYNN

I'm sure this choice comes as no surprise to most of you if you've been following me on my twitter or Instagram account. I have been anticipating Laurie's forthcoming novel for the last few months now, and I am in fact nose deep in the first few chapters already and I am loving it! I can most definitely tell you now that this story is a novel that will be hard to forget for many readers!

CONSIDER BY KRISTY ACEVEDO

It's very rare for me to be truly interested in science fiction novels, but Acevedo's upcoming debut surely has captured my attention with great interest! With it's stunning cover and intriguing synopsis, is it really any wonder why I'm anxiously anticipating for April?

IVORY AND BONE BY JULIE ESHBAUGH

I am only on book nine of this list and I am in absolute awe at how many stunning covers 2016 releases have! A big applause to all of these cover artists because you are making my inner fangirl scream right now! About two or so months ago, I met Julie for the first time and after I searched her novel through Goodreads, I was instantly captivated with it. Don't even get me started on how excited I was when they revealed the cover... *wide heart eyes* Needles to say, I have Eshbaugh's debut on my must pre-order list and you should too!

DEVIL AND THE BLUE BIRD BY JENNIFER MASON-BLACK

When I stumbled upon Devil and the Bluebird minutes after reading the synopsis, I instantly got that Supernatural vibe to it and let me tell you...I wanted this novel and I wanted it as soon as possible! I'm a big sucker for paranormal and fantasy novels, so you can bet your sweet little tush that Black's debut is one that I will bring out my grabby hands for once it hits shelves!

THESE VICIOUS MASKS BY KELLY ZEKAS AND TARUN SHANKER

THE WAY BACK TO YOU BY MICHELLE ANDREANI & MINDI SCOTT 

Being a huge fan of contemporaries, therefore I have to keep up with the latest releases in that genre, so imagine my excitement when I came across The Way Back to You, a novel of loss, love and hope. I feel as though Mindi and Michelle's forthcoming release will tug at the heartstrings of readers and make them feel as if they are in the story themselves. This is certainly a novel you must have on your TBR!

SUMMER OF SLOANE BY ERIN SCHNEIDER

The warm Hawaiian sun, lazy beach days, exotic food and a handsome boy that doesn't play by the rules? Who wouldn't want to jump into this spectacular debut and experience all of these exciting things? Summer of Sloane seems to be the perfect read for the upcoming summer months and I have no doubt that I will be lounging on the beautiful beaches of Mexico with this book in hand!

THE WAY TO GAME THE WALK OF SHAME BY JENN P. NGUYEN

As I said above, I am an absolute huge fan of contemporaries,  (sometimes even the super fluffy ones like this one!) so you can imagine how excited I was when I came across this debut on Goodreads. With that being said, Nguyen's forthcoming release has me tingling for June to come quicker!

THE GIRL OF INK AND STARS BY KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE

This cover and synopsis is most definitely Sassy Approved! Not long after reading the synopsis I debated whether it would be too early to send in my request for this debut because wow! (A girl can try, right?) This book definitely fits right up my alley and my inner fan girl is screaming yes for it!

EARTH'S END BY ELISE KOVA

With how the previous novel in the series ended, it's obviously no surprise that I am anticipating the latest in the series, Earth's End! I absolutely love Kova's work and I can not wait to see how it all plays out in this latest release. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a fellow bookworm, I highly recommend this series!

  3. So far I have read: These Vicious Masks, Dreamology, and Revenge of the Wilde and I loved them all. They are all pretty great books! The one I wasn't a fan of was Firsts, but that was more because it conflicted with my values and my beliefs then anything else. I am so freaking excited for The Crowns Game and Ivory and Bone. Great list girl!
