Top Ten Tuesday ǀ 2016 Debut Novels


Hello fellow Top 10 Tuesday participants, and returning readers and friends. Oh, yes, and welcome to December! Today marks a new month of blogging and we kick things off here with another Top Ten Tuesday edition.


Broke and Bookish December 1st
 Top Ten 2016 Debuts Novels We Are Looking Forward To
 
Before we get to the books, I must say when I saw this category I figured I've have a ton of books to share and talk about. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that in fact was not true. Why this is, I do not know. I suspect they'll be lots more debuts that have me excited in 2016, but perhaps news is still scare on what those will be making them harder to find. Regardless, I'm excited for the eight titles I did collect. Let's have a look at them, shall we!?

#1. Where she Belongs by Johnnie Alexander

If we want to be all technical, this isn't Johnnie's debut (looking over this list, I did that more than once today... oops!). But it is her first contemporary if I'm not mistaken. That is a debut that deserves celebrating regardless.

#2. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro


This one looks fun. 'Nuff said.

#3. Curio by Evangeline Denmark


I'm super curious about this one and thanks to the amazing publicist, I have a copy. Now if only I'd read it.

#4. The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig


This one sounds intriguing. I haven't read much beyond its synopsis, but sometimes that's enough and then we can form our own unbiased opinions.

#5. Close to You by Kara Isaac


Kara is a lovely person. She's been a great friend of this blog and I'm beyond excited for her debut. Hopefully I'll have a chance to read it this month because I hear it's ah-ma-zing. Which doesn't surprise me in the least!


#6. The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson
Technically this isn't Liz's debut. She's written with the Steeple Hill line, releasing several novels there. However, it marks a debut with Revell, so there is a debut in there.


#7. A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry
Not sure if this is a "me book" or not, but it looks like it could be a "wild ride" kind of read.

#8. The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan

I "met" Rachel WAY back when I was actively writing for Femnista. Through Twitter and her blog I got to know her a bit better, and in the last year (or more?), I was thrilled to learn she was publishing a novel with Harvest House. Needless to say, I think this book is going to be smashing! Stay tuned for a fun opportunity as regards Rachel's books next week!

-------

That's it for this Top 10 Tuesday edition that marks the last first month edition of 2015.
What are some of the 2016 debuts YOU are anticipating?

As always, I'd love to chat with you about your Top Ten Tuesday lists or anything bookish.

Have a happy-faced day, readers!

  1. That's wonderful that another person writing for Femnista is publishing! I'm so not on top of what's coming out next year so my TTT this week is a bit different but your list is filled with some interesting titles. Happy reading, Rissi :)

    1. I agree, Lianne! I love seeing all of our old Femnista pals publishing and going on to better, even more amazing pursuits in writing. Wishing Rachel so much luck. :)

      I'm sure they'll be lots more 2016 debuts I'll wish to read... but these were "easy" to find, so I felt like eight was a "good enough" number for now. :)

  2. The Girl From Everywhere seems to be everywhere this week. :-) I hope you enjoy these debuts!

  3. I honestly don't pay much attention to upcoming debut books or authors, I wish I even knew how to do it.. I went off the board this week and hope I have provided a service at the same time for holiday shopping tips for book lovers. My Top Ten Tuesday list

    1. My pleasure, Kara. I'm SUPER excited to read Close to You. I *really* want to read it, like yesterday, but since it doesn't come out until April, I told myself I'd best wait since some of the other books on my TBR come first. :)

  5. I'm really keen for A Study in Charlotte too! I ADORE Sherlock Holmes and I want a female version so so bad. :') And actually I didn't have many debuts I was looking forward to either. D: I will definitely scour your list and look them all up on goodreads.
    Here's my TTT!

    1. Like you, I'm a big Sherlock fan, Cait! He's a brilliant character. If you like the Sherlock canon and don't mind it set back in the 1900s, you might want to look into Rachel McMillan's new series (listed above). It's a kind of "female" Sherlock and Watson in some sense and if her novella is any indication, this series is going to be ah-ma-zing. Hope you find some good reads, Cait. :)

  6. The Bachelor Girls Guide looks nice, I like the Canadian setting. Not sure if I've read many books set in Toronto...

    1. If the novella that proceeds "Bachelor Girls" is any indication (it's currently on Kindle and e-book platforms), this series will be amazing, Greg. I've read the novella and it's a great set up for the series. :)

  7. I've got Kara and Rachel's books on my list this week too! I'm really looking forward to A Study in Charlotte too but totally forgot about it when I was writing my post lol. Also - I've read both Johnnie Alexander's and Evangeline Denmark's novels to review for RT - you will love them, I think! At least I did :) My TTT

    1. YAY! I'm so pleased to know Johnnie and Evangeline's books are good, Carrie. Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to them all the more then. :)

      If you're curious about Rachel's series, come by next Tuesday. We're having a fun little giveaway/cover reveal party. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting - off to visit your TTT meme. :)

  8. Thanks for including Curio on this list! I'm anxiously awaiting the other fabulous titles you shared, especially The Girl from Everywhere, A Study in Charlotte, and The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder. A Fierce and Subtle Poison caught my eye too. Intriguing title!
    I hope you enjoy Grey's adventure in the enchanted curio cabinet. Happy reading!

    1. My pleasure, Evangeline; I've been wanting to read your novel for weeks now, and alas, I've not been able to (I try and read my review books in order of when they release). Hopefully this month! :)

      Yay for all of those titles you mention; I agree. "Poison" has a fabulous title and Rachel's debut promises to be amazing if the novella she just released is any indication.

      Thank you. I plan on enjoying Curio very much. :)

  9. A list with tons of great books on it! I cannot wait until A Study in Charlotte. That's honestly one of my most anticipated 2016 releases right now. Gotta love me some Sherlock/Watson!

  10. We have a few similar titles on our lists this year! I'm looking forward to "A Study in Charlotte" & "The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder," and I will probably try reading "Curio" as well. I know nothing about "A Fierce and Subtle Poison" but the title certainly sounds interesting. :)

    1. Yay! I cannot wait to read so many of these, Hayden - and make sure to visit next Tuesday for some fun regarding Rachel's series. :) Curio sounds so intriguing and I agree with you; "Poison" is a great tile because it piques ones interest. :)

  11. Where She Belongs is one that I have on my TBR list too, since it looks like an excellent story.
    I will have to check into the other titles you mentioned that didn't make it onto my list...;)

  13. I am very excited about The Girl From Everywhere also! And I have the same feelings as you do about A Fierce and Subtle Poison- I have no idea if it would be a "me" book, so I am going to wait and see how some reviews go first. Great choices, I hope you enjoy them!!

  15. I'd like to add my debut novel, "Free of Malice" to your Top Ten 2016 Debuts Novels We Are Looking Forward To List. It will be available in February 2016.

    #FOMbook is a psychological thriller that portrays the emotional realities of healing from a vicious, physical attack and the obsession of one woman to force the legal system to acknowledge her right to self-defense. It's loosely based on personal experience and set in Atlanta.

    Let me know if you or any of your readers are interested in being an advance reader! Details and contact info on my blog and website.

    Thanks for sharing your lists and reading tips!

    2. Hi, Liz. Thank you for visiting. I've been excited about your novel since first reading about it and yesterday, I was surprised with a copy of it for review on Life is Story. Needless to say, I cannot wait to get to 'Red Door' on my TBR! :)

      Hope you enjoy those you're anticipating (I'm 100% sure Kara's and Johnnie's will be fabulous, and if Rachel's just-released novella is any indication, her series is going to be delightful!). Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

  18. Just want to add my thanks for including Where She Belongs. You're right, this is my first contemporary and also my first book with Revell.

    Carrie's 4-star review for RT made my day when it came out.

    I have Liz's book in my TBR pile and hope to check out the others on your list, too.

    Thanks again!!!!!
