Top 10 Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year
2016 has been a pretty great year when talking about books, if you ask me. There have already been some wonderful book releases which I've had the chance to read and quite a few which are still on my TBR, but the next half of 2016 has even more amazing reads in store for us. I picked 10 upcoming releases which I'm incredibly excited about; make sure to share your own suggestions as well! :)

Be sure to share your own TTT's in the comments section below; I'd love to hear from you! 

1. 'Letters from Lighthouse Cottage' - Ali McNamara

Sandybridge is the perfect English seaside town: home to gift shops, tea rooms and a fabulous fish and chip shop. And it's home to Grace - although right now, she's not too happy about it.

Grace grew up in Sandybridge, helping her parents sort junk from vintage treasures, but she always longed to escape to a bigger world. And she made it, travelling the world for her job, falling in love and starting a family. So why is she back in the tiny seaside town she'd long left behind, hanging out with Charlie, the boy who became her best friend when they were teenagers?

It turns out that travelling the world may not have been exactly what Grace needed to do. Perhaps everything she wanted has always been at home - after all, they do say that's where the heart is...

As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow , some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love...
