Hello Readers!

Long time no Top Ten Tuesday post! I know … I haven’t been on the ball. Well, guess what! I’m back! And I hope to be better than ever!

Today’s post is a fun one, but one that since I haven’t been as active reading wise one I feel I can’t really post about. Because of that, I feel I can’t really talk about this topic. But what I can do is talk about the debut books that I really want to read.

So without further adieu I give you my top ten debut books that have been on my radar and that I want to read!

(In no particular order)


Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – I’ve been hearing a ton of buzz about Nicola Yoon’s Everything, Everything. And from what I’m hearing it’s a book that everyone needs to read! But that’s not why I want to read it. What first drew me to this book was it’s cover. It’s beautifully simple, and because of that I was intrigued. Beyond the cover it has an even more intriguing plot, and I’m curious/interested to see how it unfolds.

Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falloff – Here’s the funny thing: I have a copy of this. I’ve had a copy since just prior to last Christmas when a secret santa exchange brought it into my life. And since then, I knew this book was going to be my kind of book. From the summary alone, it seems  a dark read that is full of hope. And on top of that, it seems like it will show how music can help/heal people (something I firmly believe). I think I need to get to this book … soon!

Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett – This book, according to GoodReads is a romantic horror. What more could I want in a book!?! Seriously ….

The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy – I don’t know how or where I heard about it, but I’m glad I did. This book has creepy (almost literally) written all over it, and for some time I’ve been looking for a book that will give me the chills. I have a funny feeling this book may just do that.

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes – Once again, I was a complete sucker for the cover. After being drawn in by the cover, I looked into the book and again, this had NICOLE written all over it. As you can tell I like darker, grittier books and this one seems dark and gritty.

The Distance Between Lost and Found by Katheryn Holmes – A few months back at the Teen Author festival’s mega signing I had the chance to not only pick up this book, but to meet the author and have her sign my copy. Not only did I want to read this because it seemed so good, but after getting my book signed I wanted to read it because Kathryn Holmes was so incredibly nice! I haven’t read it yet … but soon!

Fans of the Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa – When bff Miss Print and I were at BEA this year we were both in agreement that this was a book I needed in my life.  The line was swift and before I knew it I was face to face with this debut author. And seriously, she seemed like my spirit animal — what with both of us being from Jersey and all. It was meant to be and I know that when I read this book, I will fall head over heels in love with it, and I’ll be looking anxiously forward to Scelsa’s sophomore book.

The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore – I just recently heard about this book.  Traveling performers, count me in!

Anne & Henry by Dawn Ius – In a short sentence: I have a weird fascination (for lack of a better word) with Anne Boleyn.

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle – This is another book that before being published a lot of buzz was swirling around it. And it was being compared to E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars, a book that is all kinds of right in my opinion.  So, year, this is obviously a book I’m excited to read (and yes, I do own a copy!).

So that’s it dear readers! What debut books are you looking forward to reading?
