Rainbowheart Hi Jasmine, would it be ok with you if I changed the name of this list to "YA Novels of 2016?" That way it will match the other lists for all the other years on Goodreads, which will make it easier for people to find.

Oh yeah. I was thinking that it was YA, but I see the publisher lists it as Adult. I'll remove it.

Shera (Book Whispers) The Cruel Prince (The Folk of Air #1)

by Holly Black (Goodreads Author)

is 2018.


message 27: by Alice-Elizabeth (new)

Alice-Elizabeth This is going to be a great year for books :D


Shera (Book Whispers) It really is. It's interesting seeing sci-fi making a huge comeback.


message 29: by Jessica (last edited Dec 14, 2015 01:53PM) (new)

Jessica Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken was October 2015.


message 30: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks Jessica and Shera. I removed those two.


message 31: by Jason (last edited Dec 16, 2015 10:02AM) (new)

Jason Hmm, all of Laini's votes are removed just because she apparently switched the order of titles? Great.
Basically the only book on the list I was truly excited about. Already read 10% of the T50, and none of them are good.


message 32: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard (September 2015)


message 33: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks Jessica. I removed Queen Song.

Jason, the first Strange the Dreamer title is still there. I just moved the other to the 2017 list.


Jessica (The Psychotic Nerd) I removed See How They Run by Ally Carter, as it comes out in late 2015, not 2016


message 35: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Could someone try running a duplicate check on this list?

Every time I try, I get an error message: "The change you wanted was rejected. Maybe you tried to change something you didn't have access to. "

I don't believe it's me because I can run checks on other lists just fine. I was thinking this one might have a bug, but if someone else could confirm, that would be great.

The same happened to me


message 37: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for checking! I'll post about it in the Goodreads Feedback group.


message 38: by Nina {ᴡᴏʀᴅs ᴀɴᴅ ᴡᴀᴛᴇʀ} (last edited Dec 26, 2015 07:44PM) (new)

Nina {ᴡᴏʀᴅs ᴀɴᴅ ᴡᴀᴛᴇʀ} The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman is already out on shelves in Aus. Published this month 2015.


message 39: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, Nina!

I went through and removed all non-2016 YA, some that got pushed to 2017, and middle grade and adult novels.


message 41: by Karen (new)

Karen Hi

I just removed Leave Me by Gayle Forman which I had added as a description has just been added and it is apparently her first novel for adults!

Still looking forward to it :)


Jessica (The Psychotic Nerd) Should Remembrance by Meg Cabot be removed?
It's the 7th book in an originally YA series, but the MC is now an adult, so the book is technically an adult book


Shera (Book Whispers) Jessica (Goldenfurpro) wrote: "Should Remembrance by Meg Cabot be removed?

I think it should stay. It will help fans of the series become aware that another book is releasing.


message 44: by Grace (new)


message 45: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Looks like there are some books on here twice...


message 46: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Yes, unfortunately the duplicate check bug hasn't been fixed yet. I keep posting about it in the Goodreads Feedback group, but all I've heard is that the techs are working on it.


message 47: by Janice (new)

Janice Benson I added Harry Potter and the cursed child. It states that it is Young Adult, but you could remove it if you think its middle grade


message 48: by Becky (new)

Becky B Flower by Olsen (currently #141) says its release date is 2017


message 49: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up! I removed that one.


message 50: by Becky (new)

Becky B After the Fall (~#218) and Arsonist (~#321) are both 2017 releases.
