10 2016 YA Releases I Didn't Get to But Will Read Soon! | Top 10 Tuesday

I've read a lot of 2016 releases last year but nowhere near managed to read all the cool books I wanted to read! 
Here are some that I missed.

LADY MIDNIGHT - Cassandra Clare
I'm not done with the shadowhunters series and I will read a lot more of them. I've still not finished The Mortal Instruments but one day I will. Even though I genuinely didn't truly love a single one of these books I just love the TV show (Marc 8th 2016, Marget McElderry) Goodreads

It's been years since I've read Melissa Marr! And another fairy book?! Yes! (Mar 1st 2016, HarperCollins) Goodreads

CONSIDER - Kristy Acevedo
A protagonist with anxiety and holograms! Bring it on! (Apr 19th 2016, Jolly Fish Press) Goodreads

THE SIREN - Kiera Cass
Sometimes I go through those phases where I'm absolutely obsessed with a specific paranormal creature. I haven't been on a mermaid craze this year so I skipped this one, but I hope I'll get obsessed in 2017. (Jan 26th 2016, Harper Teen) Goodreads

I didn't read the blurb, I just know there's a chronically ill protagonist and I'm sold. I assume it's one of preppy boarding schools ~with a secret society~ novels. (Nov 8th 2016, Delacore) Goodreads

FLAMECASTER - Cinda Williams China
I've been reading a lot of High Fantasy in 2016 but I unfortauntely didn't manage to read this one. I don't know anything at all about it aside from my friends loving it. (Apr 5th 2016, HarperCollins) Goodreads

TELL THE WIND AND FIRE - Sarah Rees Brennan
I've been longing for another book similar to PLUS ONE with people living in the daylight and the night and this is just what I'm looking for. Soon. (Apr 5th 2016, Clarion Books) Goodreads

KILL THE BOYBAND - Goldy Moldavsky 
Boybands and fandom obsessions! I'm sad I didn't buy a copy this year. (Feb 23rd 2016, Point) Goodreads

UNDERWATER - Marisa Reichardt
You can always catch me (get it? because the book's name is UNDERWATER. Nah?) with a good mental health read. (Jan 12th 2016, Farrar Straus & Giroux) Goodreads

I don't think I actually ever truly loved an assassin book. Bring on the badassery! (Feb 2nd 2016, HarperTeen) Goodreads

What are some 2016 releases you wanted to read but didn't get to?
