Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For


Totally Random Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week on Top Ten Tuesday it is all about the 2014 debuts I’m psyched about! I’m not as familiar with the 2014 debut authors as I was with 2013 ones, but here’s some of the ones I do know about that have me hopeful. ^.^

Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman 1. The Looking Glass by Jessica Arnold – While this book always makes me think of Through the Looking Glass I really am excited about this one, especially seeing how Arnold portrays the 19th century from a modern-day teenage perspective. Yes please!

 2. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman – Adolf Hitler? 1930s Munich? This is the kind of book that I never manage to find but would always enjoy reading. If this is executed well Blankman will have a hit on her hands. Squee!

3. The Fifty-Seven Lives of Alex Wayfare by M.G. Buehrlen – Another book with historical aspects, this one involving time travel, and the possibility of Limbo. How can you not want to read it? I know I do!

Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones 4.Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones – I already did a Waiting on Wednesday about this book late last year, but Illusive remains as a book I can’t wait to get my hands on. Science fiction holds a special place in bookish heart and this could be just what it needs.

 5. The Fire Wish by Amber Lough – I don’t know too much about this one, but when I saw jinnis, magic lamps, and a “world of flame and crystal” I was hooked.

 6. Winter Falls by Nicole Maggi – I will admit to having worries of insta-love being present in this one, but shapeshifting, ancient warriors, and old magic were too much for me not to include it here. This deserves a shot. 

7. Essence by Lisa Ann O’Kane – Essence looks to examine the full extent of our emotions and whether their impact is worth the trouble they often cause. Will the emotionless or the “paradise” of feelings win out? 

Far From You by Tess Sharpe 8. Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker – An encroaching swamp of some sort and the makings of a book right out of the Body Snatchers mold is what has me excited for this book and interested to see what Parker has to offer.

 9. Far From You by Tess Sharpe – Multiple deaths, a murder mystery, and forbidden secrets are just a taste of what Far From You will unleash in April. This debut is sure to be one I read right away!

 10. Wordless by AdriAnne Strickland – Literacy is such a huge issue and Wordless looks to offer a new view of its impact on the world. Also superpowers of various sorts. I’m sold!

So those are the top ten debuts I’m looking forward to this year! What is your top ten list for this week? Are your debuts from indie authors, mainstream, or a mix? Are they a mix of genres or mostly just one? Let me know! Thanks as always for reading! ^.^
