Most Anticipated of 2016

As you can read from all of our lists, we loved 2015 and all the great shows, movies, music, books and video games released throughout the year. Now on the first day of 2016, we are already excited for what’s to come this year.

Allyson Johnson’s Most Anticipated of 2016


Bri Lockhart’s Most Anticipated of 2016


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.

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.

I need to know what happens in both of Sarah Maas’s worlds, stat.

Everything Brendon Urie has released off of fifth studio album Death of a Bachelor has been great so far.


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.

Pitched originally as a YA Outlander, Bracken’s latest sounds like a fantastic time-traveling tale with awesome characters.

Speaking of Outlander, the second season promises to be just as good as the first.

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.  


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.

This is more of a fingers-crossed sort of deal–here’s to hoping for an announcement for a new album!

Brooke Pawling Stennett’s Most Anticipated of 2016

There is so much to be anticipated about with 2016. The movie list is endless, the music releases are gaining whispers and tour dates are happening every single week. For me, the November release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sits at the top, with the trailer on a continuous loop until that beautiful month creeps closer. The year of 2016 also marks the end of an era with the Divergent series, the last in the trilogy of C.S. Pacat books, and the continuous trend of turning animated Disney movies into real action films. Here is my Top 10 most anticipated of 2016 list:
