Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic: Top Ten 2013 Debuts I’m Looking Forward To.
I’m going to say it, and I am going to watch you all drool: book catalogs.
That’s right, it is time to start thumbing through the book 2013
pron book catalog. What am I looking forward to this year? I have listed the top ten
debut authors and debut series for 2013.
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake – Anna Dressed in Blood blew me away. She set the bar high. If this isn’t good, I’ll sic Anna right onto you, Blake! (just, kidding, I love you).
Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger – That COVER! That DESCRIPTION! Female “Airbender” anyone?!
The Lost Sun by Tessa Gratton – “United States of Asgard”. How the hell could I say no to THAT? A president who can poke his own eyeball out of his head. Vikings around every corner. Bad-ass female goddesses. That is a future I can believe in.
Linked by Imogen Howson – The premise shows some promise. And the book has enough backbone to keep from stating “I am the next Harry Potter/Game of Thrones/Hunger Games/Twilight/*cram in current book onto a sticker and slap it on the front of the cover*”
Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr – I can only blame myself if this is bad, but……THIS LOOKS SO AWESOME!
Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff – Yeah, me and 1,000+ bloggers have this on a “GIVE IT TO ME” list.
Allie Brosh’s “Hyperbole and a Half” book – Because a girl can still dream. (I miss you, Allie)
Just One Day by Gayle Forman – Forman is not new, but this is the first book in her new series. And I am a sucker for her stories.
City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster – The author loves Star Trek novels. And just look at the summary on Goodreads – cats, flirtation and death. What else do you need in life??
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett – She’s a NIGHTMARE! I’m sold.
What debut 2013 novels are waiting on your own wish list?
(Please don’t list good
ones. My wish list is already totaling more than I make in a year).
