message 1: by Ladyacct (new)

Ladyacct Um seems to me there are a couple of these that are already released so they really should not qualify for this list. Seeing as it is 2015.


message 2: by Gabriella (last edited Dec 30, 2015 01:40PM) (new)

Gabriella No. 67 About a Vampire by Lynsay Sands was published September 29th 2015.

No. 177 A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas was published May 5th 2015.


message 3: by Kay Dee (new)

Kay Dee as always when lists are left to themselves, folks add way too many and don't follow the rules or look at the list to see if the series is already on it. sigh.


message 4: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Removed:
About a Vampire by Lynsay Sands (2015)
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (2015)

Concealed in Death by J.D. Robb (2014)
The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah MacLean (2015)
F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher (2015)
The Grownup by Gillian Flynn (2015)
The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman (2015)
The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook by Alan Lee (2005)
The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland (2003)

Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield (2011)

There are probably even more that I missed but this cleans things up a little!


message 5: by Rosie (new)

Rosie B I'm so excited for "Glass Sword"!!! I LOVED "Red Queen". Also, a book of "Red Queen" novellas just came out and I can't wait to read those, also.


message 7: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Also removed:

Gone Girl (2014)
Dark Places (2009)
In Cold Blood (1965)
The Girl on the Train (2015)


message 8: by Karena (new)

Karena The Secret needs to be removed too. :/


message 9: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Karena wrote: "The Secret needs to be removed too. :/"

Done :-)


message 10: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Kjell wrote: "Winter was published last year. Can it be removed? Also A Dream of Spring by George R.R. Martin will never be released in 2016!"

Removed both :-)


message 11: by Katie (new)

Katie Conigliaro Cursed Child and A Girl From Everywhere are currently listed at least twice.

I think it would help if it was possible to search the list to see if someone has already been added. Going through 10+ pages just to see if something has been listed yet is a bit tedious.

I agree, it can get tedious to go through all the pages! There is a way for GR librarians and the list creator to check for duplicates and it combines the votes. I'll go ahead and do that now :-)


message 13: by Grace (new)

Grace What about Half a War or is that already released?


message 14: by Laurie (new)

Laurie Close - my e-book prequel novella (Wandfasted, HarlequinTEEN) comes out around January 2017. The Black Witch book comes out June 2017 :)


message 15: by Antoinette (new)

Antoinette May These sound like YA. Are they?


message 16: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Antoinette wrote: "These sound like YA. Are they?"

They do not have to be YA. The only qualification is that they are released in 2016 (although some other years sneak in over time).

There must just be a lot of YA fans who have interacted with the list. I know I personally voted for a variety of genres, some YA included.


message 17: by Lucia (new)

Lucia I love this list, but I think it's going to be hard to search and see if I find someting that I like to read :)


message 18: by Alma Q (new)

Alma Q Only original work first published in 2016 or including translations? What about languages other than English? The list has attracted quite a few books from previous years (again) but many of them have had new translations appear this year. Should I leave/remove them all, or perhaps leave those where a recently translated edition has been voted for?

Concealed..."

Well they still haven't taken it down... It's 2017


Cry Me A River of Books You need to remove The Black Witch by Laurie Forest- it was in 2017! :D
