Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make LISTS of our top ten books based on that week’s prompt… and then we stalk other people’s answers to add a million books to our TBR. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here.
I’m pretty bad at figuring out and/or knowing off the top of my head if an author is a debut or not. I just don’t keep track of that stuff (yet) since my blog is so new. Everyone feels like a debut to me! Regardless, there are some that pop into mind immediately (um Red Queen) and some I needed to do a bit of investigating to remind myself that it was in fact a debut. Regardless, all of these have been on my TBR for quite a while and I’m very excited to get to them this year!
- The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi: I like books that alternate between “then” and “now.” Definitely really excited for this one.
- Emancipated by M.G. Reyes: Kind of sounds like The Breakfast Club except all the kids are living in a house instead of Saturday detention. I’m down to give it a try.
- Last Year’s Mistake by Gina Ciocca: Another one with alternating chapters, this time between two people instead of two moments in time. Still down with it.
- Even When You Lie to Me by Jessica Alcott: Okay yes I’ve talked about how much I don’t care for book/author comparisons, but THIS ONE for some reason has my attention. “Fans of John Green’s Looking for Alaska as well as Lauren Oliver and Sarah Dessen” ??? Okay fine mention my literal favorite book and two of my favorite authors and I might be intrigued.
- In A World Just Right by Jen Brooks: I will read books about alternate universes for the REST OF MY DAYS.
- The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne: THIS COVER THOUGH.
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I will say for the millionth time that Victoria Aveyard grew up in the town next to mine and one of her best friends from her hometown is one of my best friends from college. So yeah I totally basically know her.
- We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach: I haven’t read any of these stories where the world is going to end, but this one seems really cool. I am kind of obsessed with the cover, too.
- Denton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin: Let me just say I’ve been referring to this book as “Denton’s Little Deathdate” instead of realizing that his NAME is Denton Little. Bye.
- One of the Guys by Lisa Aldin: Generally I hate when a book’s plotline is based around strict gender norms (She’s a tomboy! She can’t go to a school for girls! Girls and boys are soooo different!), but for some reason this one has won me over. Really hoping it’s worth it!
