Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
The topic for this week is: Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For!
For this week’s list I’ve tried to list books that aren’t in the series I’ve talked about on the blog before. Late last year I did mention five debut novels that I can’t wait to read (Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Releases I’m dying to read) and I’m still very excited for those books but there are so many new authors with brilliant books being released this year that it was not a struggle to mention ten more that sound amazing.
Bird by Crystal Chan – This one is cheating. Because I was lucky enough to get a review copy of this book and am currently reading it. It’s gorgeous. It’s an emotional read (or at least it has been for me) and so very beautifully written. I feed no shame pimping this book as part of my top ten for this week.
Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy – I love the sound of this one. A girl with cancer and a not so great prognosis decides to complete her bucket list and settle scores only to find out that she’s gone into remission.
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira – I saw this book on many lists last year and knew I had to put it on my to-read list. It looks amazing and I definitely have a soft spot for books with letters in them.
The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine – Average girl falls for bad boy jock. It might be a cliché but it’s one of those that I usually like reading about. Some of the reviews I’ve read for this book haven’t been all that favourable but I love cute contemporary romances and the blurb makes this one sound adorable (and I love the idea of an Arthurian catering hall).
The Falconer by Elizabeth May – Heiress. Debutant. Murderer. A new generation of heroines has arrived. Need I say more? I think that it’s been listed by people as YA steampunk with fae just makes me that just more eager to read it!
Half Bad by Sally Green – Good witches, Bad Witches and a teenage boy who is a bit of both. Sounds interesting.
Camelot Burning by Kathryn Rose – I’ve always liked Arthurian legends so this new series by debut author Kathryn Rose definitely appeals to me.
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord – Road trips, the boy next door and music? Sounds like a contemporary romance not to be missed.
Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither – Creepy murderous clones. This looks like a scifi novel that I’d love.
Fates by Lanie Bross – Mythology, falling in love with the one you’re fated never to be with. Sounds deliciously heartbreaking!
