Top Ten Tuesday | Dazzling Debuts of 2017 (Which Already Own Real Estate on My Bookshelf)
Ah, 2017. After preparation, lead up and much reveling (on everyone but a boring book nerd girl like me), the New Year is here with a bang. Today, it’s another Tuesday which can mean only one thing.
Broke and Bookish January 3 | Top Ten 2017 Debuts I'm Excited For – Broke and Bookish
Today some of the books I feature to comprise this list is breaking the rules. Technically, the first book on my list has been published as a “part one” novella, and therefore the author(s) aren’t debut novelists (not to mention one half of this writing team is already an author multiple times over). I’ve also listed another who is not a debut author, but since I’m too lazy to seek out the right authors, I’m going with it, and liking it.
Let’s toss some confetti, grab our favorite warm drink and spotlight the books of 2017 we cannot wait to adventure with.
1. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsey Cummings | Co-written by popular Booktuber Sasha Alsberg and The Murder Complex author Lindsey Cummings, this shot to NYT Bestseller stardom when it released as a “part one” novella. Since it’s been picked up to publish as a full-length novel this summer. Amazon | Goodreads
2. Freedom’s Ring by Heidi Chiavaroli | I don’t know anything about this except that a.) it takes place in alternate time lines and b.) the cover I’m using has since been revamped. (I admit, I kinda like this one.) Amazon | Goodreads
3. Cold Summer by Gwen Cole | This one is a twisty, time travelling type story that sounds interesting. Amazon | Goodreads
4. The Continent by Kiera Drake | This one has been hyped in the YA world, so naturally, I’m curious. Amazon | Goodreads
5. Caraval by Stephanie Garber | Yes, this is another must-read that has appeared on all of the hyped lists of 2017. Its cover is stunning, and my impression of it involves it being dark, complex and decadent! (All in the best of ways.) Amazon | Goodreads
6. Gilded Cage by Vic James | This is a fantasy world that belongs to “equals.” Described as aristocrats with magical gifts, I suspect this will be an interesting world. Amazon | Goodreads
7. It Started with Goodbye by Christine June | This one sounds really sweet, and it compares itself to Cinderella, so clearly that’s catnip for this fangirl. I’m all in! Amazon | Goodreads
8. Wait for Me by Caroline Leech | Since I’m a big fan of WWII stories, reading this is a must! Plus, just look at the sweet cover… *swoon* Amazon | Goodreads
9. Toward a Secret Sky by Heather McLean | Heather has written novels prior to this, but this would be my first novel from her, so it kind of counts, right? Amazon | Goodreads
10. Freemason’s Daughter by Shelley Sackier | Historical YA fiction is a genre I rarely read, so I’d really like to discover more voices in this genre. This debut seems a good place to start – or what books would you recommend? Amazon | Goodreads
