Hi all! Jana here. I've kind of taken over today's TTT because I could not narrow my list to just 10 books! As many of you know, I'm the host of the 2015 Debut Author Challenge (read about it and sign up here!), and I've spent the last few months talking with a ton of authors about their upcoming books and I'm so excited about so many of them! So here are 10 debuts I'm really excited about. Head over to my personal blog for 10 more!
1. Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams (July 14, 2015)
Girl wakes up in the truck bed of a moving truck, ends up in a secluded mountain cabin with a serial killer, and escapes with her hunter at her heels. HELLO. Sign me up!
2. The Edge of Forever by Melissa E. Hurst (June 2, 2015)
Time travel! And the main girl has a stalker! Sounds interesting.
3. Hello, I Love You by Katie M. Stout (June 9, 2015)
"A teen escapes to a boarding school abroad and falls for a Korean pop star in this fun and fresh romantic novel in the vein of Anna and the French Kiss.
4. Last Year's Mistake by Gina Ciocca (June 9, 2015)
Told in alternating sections, LAST YEAR'S MISTAKE is a charming and romantic debut about loving, leaving, and letting go." Sounds like a fun romantic contemporary, perfect for beach time!
5. The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi (June 16, 2015)
"A fun, romantic read, perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti!
6. Pretending to be Erica by Michelle Painchaud (July 21, 2015)
"Walking a razor’s edge, calculating every decision, not sure sometimes who she is or what she is doing it for, Violet is an unforgettable heroine, and Pretending to be Erica is a killer debut."
7. The Creeping by Alexander Sirowy (August 18, 2015)
"Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again."
8. For the Record by Charlotte Huang (TBA 2015)
"Chelsea thought she knew what being a rock star was like . . . until she became one. After losing a TV talent show, she slid back into small-town anonymity. But one phone call changed everything."
9. Lock and Mori by Heather Petty (September 15, 2015)
"...a female Moriarty teams up with her classmate Sherlock Holmes to solve a mystery in modern-day London, until the answers lead him too close to all that she's been hiding."
10. Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandiera (December 2015)
"In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary. But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?" I had to post the whole book synopsis because YAY!
Tell us the debuts you can't wait for!!
