Top Five Anticipated Releases (for me) in 2016!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday meme, hosted by the wonderful crew at the Broke and the Bookish. While looking through my list of books I want to read, I found most of them are books that have already come out and that I need to catch up with. However, I did some research and found books by authors I truly love with release dates next year. Some of these I didn’t even know were coming out and can I say, I’m suddenly very excited?! Here are five releases I’m looking forward to next year. Bring it on 2016!

February 1st
You’re the One That I Want, Susan May Warren

I love Susan May Warren!! There’s something really wonderful about picking up a book by an author and being certain you’re going to love it. This is a continuation of the Christiansen Family, revolving around bad boy Owen who’s finally getting his redemption story. Super excited.

March 8th
The Goodbye Bride, Denise Hunter

I haven’t read too many of Hunter’s books, but I can tell she’s a keeper. Her writing is wonderful and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of her books, especially this one. A girl loses her memories and returns to the man she jilted trying to figure out why she left him? Sign me up!

Three Wishes, Lisa T. Bergren

Lisa’s writing another time slip story!! This is so awesome. I absolutely love the River of Time series! Apparently she’s going to self-publish this one hopefully sometime in April. This time, a young woman will be time-traveling back to historical California. Sounds so good.

May 3rd
Her One and Only, Becky Wade

I LOVE BECKY WADE! She’s just so good and I adore her Porter Family series. This is the last book, as each book is centered on one of the Porter kids. The first three were about the brothers and finally now we get an installment about the youngest girl, Dru. She’s a kick-butt bodyguard who takes a job protecting a NFL player. Oh my word, I love this already!

November 8th
Heartless, Marissa Meyer

Marissa Meyer, can you do any wrong? The Lunar series blew my mind, each book better than the last. And now she’s starting a new series about the Queen in Alice in Wonderland?! Dreams do come true people!

What are you excited about for 2016? I'd love to hear about it!


  1. I definitely need to catch up with the Lunar Chronicles. It sounds so great!
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

    1. Oh yeah! The Lunar Chronicles are awesome!! Thanks for stopping by. ;)

  2. Denise's and Becky's are high on my "must" list for 2016, and I did forget that Lisa has a new one coming. Thanks for the fun list and reminder, Faith. :)

    1. I love authors that are so consistently good, like Denise and Becky as well! Definitely a "must" :D

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
