Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

Alright, now this is an odd list because my resolution to myself this year is to catch up on the books I already have, not the books I want to buy. However, this list of books is just too good to NOT look forward to! (Although, I’ll be honest, I got most of these off this list on Goodreads because I’ve been trying to be SO GOOD about not looking for new books…)

Stolen Songbird1. Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy #1) by Danielle L. Jensen

Alright, I’m going to be honest, I am SO PSYCHED for this one. Strange Chemistry titles can go either way with me, but this one looks so good and the cover is so beautiful that I just can’t NOT be excited.

2. Defy (Defy #1) by Sara B. LarsonDefy

Scholastics has had this all over the web, so this probably isn’t a surprise to see here, but it looks like something that Tamora Pierce or Alex Lidell could have written, so I’m excited!

All That Glows3. All That Glows by Ryan Graudin

To be honest, I actually already have this ARC, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet because YIKES my TBR pile. However, I’m still really excited to read it! Just LOOK at that cover!

4. Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl KlamElusion

This is another one that I, a, already have an ARC of and, b, was sold on by the cover. However, once again I still haven’t read it yet so I’m still really excited to finally get to!

A Mad Wicked Folly5. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller

I’m a sucker for period pieces, especially for ones set in London. This one seems to have everything I love in it, so of course I’m excited for it!

6. Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief #1) by Livia BlackburneMidnight Thief

Female assassins are kind of my “thing” right now, so hearing about this one was a no brainer. Actually, at this point I can probably be sold just by “Assassins Guild”…

Falls the Shadow7. Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither

Now, I’ve been swearing to myself that I’m going to move away from scifi books for a change, but this one made it impossible. Clones? A sister dying but we don’t care because she’s a clone? A clone who at 12 years old may have killed someone? I’m sold.

8. The Elite by Maggie HallThe Elite

This book is being billed as a YA Da Vinci Code. Consider me first in line to see if that billing holds any kind of truth.

Banished9. Banished (The Blackhart Legacy #1) by Liz de Jager

Fae? Fighting Elder Gods? Being homeschooled so you can better learn how to wield a sword? This touches on a lot of basic loves for me, and that makes me happy.

10. Strange Sweet Song by Adi RuleStrange Sweet Song

Okay, I’ll admit that this one is different for me, but it just sounds so cool! An elite singing academy with dark secrets? I’m in!

    Female assassins are your “thing” right now? I happen to have one in the novel I’m currently working on! Hopefully I shall finish it. I have over 80,000 words already. 🙂

  2. I’ve heard mixed things about Defy, but I can’t resist High fantasy. Stolen songbird & Midnight thief are also on my list and I’m also excited for Elusion. Not only a stunning cover, but the whole promise sounds so interesting 😀
