Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular blog meme, Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week they ask us to share lists on: January 6: Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015. This is going to be a tough list to come up with… With all the already released to-read books, an entire shelf of sale books, and all the series that I read I rarely seek out new author that have yet to publish their first book. I’m more of a it’s-so-popular-I’ll-read-it-to-see-what-all-the-fuss-is-about kinda girl. So this list is going to take some digging, but hopefully I will be able to come up with ten titles to add to my to-read list.
Top Ten Debut Novels I’m interested in for 2015
Click on pictures to visit book’s page on Goodreads for synopsis and/or add to your to-read list.
- Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein 4/21/15. After reading that non fiction title about Jinn, this one definitely looks interesting. Paranormal, Romance and fantasy
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard 2/10/15. Lot of buzz about this one. Since I’m enjoying Thrones so much perhaps I should look into other high fantasy novels. High fantasy, paranormal, YA, romace.
- Woven by Michael Jensen 1/27/15. If I’m going to add the previous one to my to-read list might as well add this one too. YA & High Fantasy
- The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker 6/2/15. This one looks to be an interesting mix of genres; paranormal, fantasy, history, supernatural.
- Dove Arising by Karen Bao 2/24/15. finally something other than fantasy. Dystopian, Science fiction, YA
- Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed 10/24/15. This one looks really interesting from a cultural standpoint. Romance, YA, contemporary, cultural
- The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig 10/10/15. I know we are all burned out on YA dystopian fiction, but this one has an interesting twist that I hope make it worth the try. YA, Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic.
- Nobody’s Goddess by Amy McNulty 4/21/15. No cover for this one yet. This one looks interesting, could delve into some cultural issues we have on appearance. YA, fantasy, paranormal, dystopian.
- The Last True Vampire by Kate Baxter 6/2/15. It was really hard to find new vampire authors for this list. Sure vamps is still being written, but most of the books coming out are in established series. I for one will always read vampire stories, so publishers keep them coming please. Paranormal, romance
- Mindwalker by A.J.Steiger 6/9/15. Screw it. I searched for well over and hour and this was the only book that looked interesting enough to add to my to-read list. On the bonus side the author and I have the same initials which I will need to keep in mind for my 2015 reading challenge. YA, science fiction, dystopian
