Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For. There sadly isn’t much 2014 debut books I’m looking forward to reading, which is why this list consists of only 9 books.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
A retelling of Beauty and the Beast with an assassin twist? I’m SO in.
2. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
This book sounds similar to Before I Die by Jenny Downham, but has the potential to be really awesome. I hope it lives up to its premise!
3. The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey
This book! It’s so mysterious and I want to know a lot more about the narrator – why is she being treated like this? What’s her secret? I want to know!
4. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
Anything World War II or Hitler related, I’m so there. This book deals with both.
5. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
I love retellings! Hopefully this one will live up to its premise or I’ll be really disappointed.
6. Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
I’m usually not into contemporaries, but so far people are loving this one so why not give it a chance?
7. My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal
The cover says it all.
8. Half Bad by Sally Green
Good witches and bad witches! I haven’t read much witch books and the ones I did read weren’t good, but hopefully this one will be the first ever great witch book I read!
9. A Mad Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
I love the premise of this one and it’s a historical fiction book! I’m so there, just for the outfits. Also, I’ve been hearing really promising things about this one and I am intrigued.
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten books 2014 debuts you are excited for?
