This week's topic is all about those 2013 debut books we are dying to read!
This is awesome because this week I kiiiind of get to cheat because I get to do a post here and also did one on my blog so I get to in fact share with you the TWENTY books I'm most excited about basically. WOO LOOPHOLES. I live for them.
1. The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shephard: Ok, so I've already read this and it's really good, guys. Took me a little bit to get into but then WOW. Totally didn't realize it was a series either.
2. Taken by Erin Bowman: DYING FOR THIS! I'm just so fascinated by the premise!
3. OCD, the Dude & Me by Lauren Roedy Vaughn: I hadn't heard about this one until it showed up in my mailbox a few months ago but I'll tell you I'm more and more excited. I have a feeling it's going to be a fave contemp of the year!
4. The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar: Ok, I've been a huge fan of Aladdin since I was a wee one and PLEASE OH PLEASE I want a genie! Plus I'm not sure that I've seen a genie premise in YA fiction recently so yay for something different!
5. Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans: OBVI this was on my list. My dear friend Lenore and fellow blogger! How long have we all been waiting for this one? I'm cheating because I already read this one and it's FANTASTIC!
6. In the After by Demetria Lunetta: Science fiction! I want to know who the heck the "THEM" are. I keep picturing zombies but that's because I'm on a Walking Dead kick haha. This book sounds AWESOME.
7. Transparent by Natalie Whipple: I always say that if I had a superpower I would love to be invisible so NATURALLY I had to add this book!!
8. Reboot by Amy Tintera: I'm getting into science fiction these days and this one sounds pretty cool!
9. Pivot Point by Kasie West: I was going to start this one this month but then got distracted with a few other books that I had to read first. I've heard great things so far!
10. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke: This cover is so awesome and I just think it sounds so creepy and awesome...the devil walking amongst us in the form of a cute guy next door. YEAH that would explain some things :P
Are any of these on your list? Any I should be adding to my list? You can check out the list I did over at my blog for even more 2013 debut goodness!
I have OCD, THE DUDE, AND ME on my list too! :) My TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/debuts/ReplyDelete

I heard the agent speak about acquiring Madman's Daughter and that one definitely interests me!ReplyDelete
I also have Level 2, Taken, and Reboot on my list! So many awesome sci-fi/dystopian reads with clever unique concepts! So excited!
Lauren @ Hughes Reviews
The Madman's Daughter and Transparent would have been on my list as well if I had heard of them while creating it (about a week ago), but somehow they avoided me until a couple days ago. :( I'm so excited for them, now!ReplyDelete
So many great books to choose from. I am really looking forward to The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I adore the cover and the premise really does sound unique.ReplyDelete
The handful of reviews of Pivot Point were so positive, that I really want to read that one too.
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea sounds hilarious. What a difficult position to be in.ReplyDelete
Half of these I can't wait for but half of these are new to me!! Transparent seems pretty cool. Good picks!ReplyDelete
Nicole @ The Quiet Concert>
I already had some of those on my list, but now I want to read the rest too! I think I need a larger 'new book fund'!ReplyDelete
~ Alex @ likewordsandstuff.blogspot.com
I can't wait for Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! I hadn't heard about In the After before, but it looks really good, too. Its cover is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Great picks! Several of those made my list too. I'm especially excited about The Madman's Daughter. ;DReplyDelete
I had Taken, Level 2, and Reboot on my list. In the After sounds great, and I love the cover for OCD, The Dude, and Me! Looks like there are plenty of great debuts for 2013!ReplyDelete
We have several in common. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea looks awesome! I hadn't heard of that one!ReplyDelete
We have several in common!ReplyDelete

These sound great, and the covers are lovely! When I was searching for 2013 debuts with good buzz, a lot of YA was popping up. :)ReplyDelete
You can find my TTT list over at Bookwanderer!
I already have Level 2 and The Madman's Daughter on My TTT but now I feel like I should add The Art of Wishing. Aaaargh - so many exciting new YA authors debuting this year, it was hard to choose!!ReplyDelete
I am super excited for Pivot Point! But OCD the Dude and Me looks good and so does The Art of Wishing. Looks like there's a bunch of good books coming out in 2013.ReplyDelete
Great list and I have some those too on my list too. Like the Madmens daughter, devil and the deep blue sea :)ReplyDelete
I'm also looking forward to Pivot Point :DReplyDelete
I'm definitely excited for Pivot Point and Level 2 - haven't heard of The Art of Wishing so thanks so much for listing that! It sounds great :D will add it to my TBR along with several others from that list I think ;)ReplyDelete
Sarah @ TotalTeenFiction
Lots of fun covers! I'm not that familiar with YA books, so they're all new to me. Hope you enjoy your reading :)ReplyDelete
Pivot Point is amazing! I reviewed it today over at Fall Into Books. It's one of my favorites of the year so far! I hope you love it too!ReplyDelete
Surprisingly, the only one that I have on my list is Level 2! Some of the others sound good too (like The Art of Wishing), but a few on my list just pushed them out of the running for a spot ;)ReplyDelete
I have Level 2 on hold at the library right now, and I can't get it soon enough!ReplyDelete
Yes! I cannot wait to read both Pivot Point and Taken! Some of these I actually hadn't heard of prior to this so I may have to add those to my list too!ReplyDelete
So many that look good...I have Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and Taken on my list, too.ReplyDelete
I'm so excited to read Taken! I've got it my list too.ReplyDelete

I'd seen the cover on goodreads, but I hadn't really thought about it. Now that you've commented on it it'll prob make it to my to-read list very soon!ReplyDelete
