2023 Debuts I’m Excited About

Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

I definitely need to do a better job of tracking debut authors! I realized some of my most anticipated reads of the year are debuts, which is fun! Here are some I’m excited to read – broken down by genre and/or age target where appropriate.

Contemporary (+ One Fantasy!)

I already read and really enjoyed LUNAR LOVE (highly recommend you check it out!). The other books featured here are primarily contemporary novels (a couple YA and the rest adult). There’s also one highly anticipated fantasy read down there (EMILY WILDE) that didn’t fit anywhere else.

Mystery / Thriller / Etc.

I’ve been loving mystery/thrillers lately and all of these are on my highly anticipated list for the year! I didn’t realize a few of these were debuts. These are mostly adult books with just two YA picks (CLARISSA and HOW TO FIND). There’s at least one (RUTHY) that’s more of a mixed literary/mystery and BOARD TO DEATH is a cozy.

  1. I’ve been terrible about reading debuts in the last few years! I tend to gravitate to backlist books or new releases from authors I’ve already read and enjoyed. However, I am so excited to read The Fraud Squad and Lunar Love. And I’ll probably read Fake Dates and Mooncakes since I’ve never seen a cuter cover! And I also picked up The Writing Retreat and very much want to read The Golden Spoon!
