Lola’s Ramblings: Ten New Releases I want to Read in 2016

Posted January 7, 2016 by Lola in Lola's Ramblings / 30 Comments


Lola’s Ramblings is a feature on my blog Lola’s Reviews where I ramble on about a book related or a non-book related topic. These are discussion type of posts where I talk about a topic and readers can weigh in on the topic in the comments. Usually these posts are everything that doesn’t fall under any standard header, like tours, cover reveals, memes, challenges, recaps or reviews. Lola’s Ramblings posts are discussions of a certain topic and my point of view on them. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.

As it’s a new year I thought it would be fun to talk about which new releases I am excited for this year. Ofcourse there are way too many to all list here, so I limited myself to 10 books.

Ten New Releases I want to Read in 2016

  • Untitled by SJ Pajonas. Ever since SJ Pajonas mentioned she’s writing a cozy mystery I have been really excited for this book and series and I can’t wait to get my hands on it and the sequel!
  • Grilled for Murder (Country Store Mysteries #2) by Maddie Day. Flipped for Murder the first book in this series was one of my favourite cozy mystery books I read last year, so I am eager for the sequel.
  • Saven: Disclosure (Saven #2) and Saven: Defiance (Saven #3) by Siobhan Davis I really enjoyed the first Saven book and with all the foreshadowing going on I am really curious to see what will happen next. And another great thing about Siobhan her books? You don’t need to wait long for the sequels as both book 2 and 3 will be released in 2016, yay!
  • City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong. There is little that excites me more than a new series by one of my favourite authors and I have been eager to finally read this one. I’ve had it pre-ordered for months already and even though it’s been released in e-format already as a 6 part serial, I wil patiently wait till I have the paperback copy and can read the whole story at once. The premise sounds so good!
  • Bright Blaze of Magic (Black Blade #3) by Jennifer Estep. I loved the first book in this series and while I haven’t read the second book yet I already have the third book pre-ordered and I can’t wait till I can get my hands on this book. If I am correct this is the last book in the series, which does make a bit sad, but also curious to how it will end.
  • Nobody But You (Cedar Ridge #3) by Jill Shalvis. I only read my first Jill Shalvis book last year, but I am already addicted to her Cedar Ridge series and I can’t wait to read book 3 in this series!
  • Untitled (Amanda Lester, Detective #4) by Paula Berinstein. I read the first Amanda Lester book last year and I loved it. I have a copy of book 2 and 3 and am hoping to get around to reading those soon. And I can’t wait for the fourth book in the series!
  • The Illusory Prophet (Singularity #3) by Susan Kaye Quinn. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and am looking forward to reading this one.
  • Betrayals (Cainsville #4) by Kelley Armstrong. All of the first 3 books in this series were 5 star reads and I can’t wait to read the fourth book in this series.
  • A Disguise to Die For (Costume Shop Mystery #1) by Diane Vallere. I already have this one pre-ordered, it just sounds so good and original! And I really am getting into the cozy mysteries lately, so I can’t wait to read this one.

And there are even more which didn’t make the list that I have my eye on.

  1. I’m so excited that you want to read the second and third Amanda Lester, Detective books, Lola! The fourth book, Amanda Lester and the Blue Peacocks’ Secret, will be out in March, just in time for the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books in early April. I’m aiming for the fifth book, Amanda Lester and the Red Spider Rumpus, to be out in November.

  2. Haha! I guessed three right that you would put on your list. I’m getting to know your reading interests. πŸ™‚ I still need to catch up on the Susan Quinn and Siobhan Davis’ series before I can get to the new ones.

    I’m looking forward to several: Patricia Briggs’ Fire Touched, JR Ward’s The Beast, Gena Showalter’s The Darkest Torment, Cecy Robson’s Once Crossed, Karen Chance’s Ride the Storm, Joanna Wylde’s Reaper’s Fire, Rebecca Zanetti’s Mercury Striking, and CS Harris’ When Falcons Fall. There are tons more, but that will give you an idea. πŸ™‚

    • That’s great you managed to guess three of them right! You definitely know what kind of books I like to read then. I hope you can catch up on Susan kaye Quinn and Siobhan Davis’s series, they both write great books!

      I haven’t read any of patricia Briggs her books so far, although I do plan on giving her books a try eventually. I’ve heard of some of the other authors, but haven’t read any of their books either. I hope you get to read all of them this year!

    • I hope so too! Sequels in favourite series are often some od the books I am most excited about, but there are some new series I am excited about as well. I think that’s the reason so many sequels are on my list as well, you already know the characters and are invested in the story and want more.

  3. I don’t look too far ahead when it comes to releases, unless it’s authors/series I adore, so I love seeing what other people are looking forward to (and if I can add them to my own TBR haha)

    It looks like you’ve got some fun reads coming up in the next year! I hope that you enjoy them all πŸ™‚

    • I still haven’t read Kelley Armstrong her newest YA series and the last book will be released this year already! I haven’t read Menagerie yet, but I do own the book, just need to get around to reading it. I have the first Others book, but haven’t read that one yet either.
