I am going to be completely unbiased and list you guys all the fantasy novels that are coming out this year. This will be only for debut novels as well as first books in a series. I have read a couple of those (two to be exact) and I can tell that 2016 is going to be the year for unique fantasy (and high fantasy) novels.
Fantasy novel retellings/mythology
Fantasy novels with a twist of paranormal
Journey/adventure fantasy novels
"Chosen one" fantasy novels
Other fantasy novels
Wow! that is ALOT of YA fantasy novels and so many of them are retellings! though some are lighter retellings than others. I can't wait to pick up so many of those, I can't even pick a top 3 to be honest. What about you guys? any of these books and themes capture your attention?
