Bri Lockhart’s Most Anticipated of 2016
- Rooney Makes a Comeback
Christmas Day brought the first new Rooney song in four years and the promise of more announcements from the pop-rock band in the coming year.
- Remembrance by Meg Cabot
Meg Cabot is returning to the Mediator universe with her first adult book in the series–just as she did for The Princess Diaries this year.
- A Court of Mist and Fury and Throne of Glass #5 by Sarah J. Maas
I need to know what happens in both of Sarah Maas’s worlds, stat.
- Death of a Bachelor by Panic! at the Disco
Everything Brendon Urie has released off of fifth studio album Death of a Bachelor has been great so far.
- Jem and the Holograms Comics Continue
2015 brought Jem and the Holograms back in a big way, not all of it successfully. Kelly Thompson’s and Sophie Campbell’s series reboot gave the Jem and the Holograms story a new, more inclusive life that helped us ignore the disappointing movie.
- Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
Pitched originally as a YA Outlander, Bracken’s latest sounds like a fantastic time-traveling tale with awesome characters.
- Outlander Season 2
Speaking of Outlander, the second season promises to be just as good as the first.
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
I’m simultaneously so excited and so scared to find out what happens to Blue and the Raven Boys in the conclusion to The Raven Cycle.
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
With the Lunar Chronicles, Meyer proved that she can fracture fairy tales with the best of them. I’m looking forward to see how she takes on Wonderland in her next novel.
- An Arctic Monkeys Announcement
This is more of a fingers-crossed sort of deal–here’s to hoping for an announcement for a new album!
