The Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2016 (An Aggregated List)

We looked at “Most Anticipated of 2016” book lists, and came away with 578 total books that people are excited for in the coming year. Of the 578 books, 151 appeared on more than a single list, with 32 appearing on four or more. The lists are very winter and spring heavy, including way more fiction than non-fiction, and at least one book that hasn’t been finished yet (Winds of Winter). We are going to make sure and check back at the end of the year when we do our end of the year lists to see if there is any overlap in the two.
