Top Ten Tuesday (#46): Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers.  This week the theme is Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For.


This is the debut I chose as being most excited for in The 2013 End of Year Book Survey.  It has aliens, a romance (no hints to a love triangle in the blurb!), a witch-hunt, blogging and a mystery.  With hooks like that it was always going to draw me in!

Aliens | Romance| Blogging

The Merciless

I’m a total wimp when it comes to scary books (and my fear of horror movies is so extreme I even avoid the covers), BUT The Merciless sounds so good I’m just going to have to try and face my fears!

Teeanage girls | Possession | Exorcism

Burn Out

I absolutely loved taking part in sci-fi month, and it sent me on a bit of a sci-fi binge! I’m really hoping to keep expanding my sci-fi horizons next year, and I’m excited to find a new YA sci-fi author.

Dystopian | Ethical dilemma | Kickass heroine


Landry Park

After seeing Landry park described as a ‘nuclear Gone with the wind’ I was too curious NOT to add it to my TBR list!  I love the idea of the Victorian-esque setting despite the fact it’s set in the future, and I’m really curious to see how that developed.

Dystopia | Historical feel in a future world



Yet another dystopian with a blurb I just couldn’t resist!

On the mysterious island of Nil, the rules are set. You have one year. Exactly 365 days–to escape, or you die.”

Amnesia | Survival | Romance

Somebody up There Hates You

I’m a little nervous about Somebody Up There Hates You because everyone adored The Fault in Our Stars and while I liked it, I didn’t love it.  I love the voice in the blurb though, and I’m so intrigued by the characters, so I’m curious and cautiously optimistic!

Cancer | Contemporary | Romance


Described on panmacmillan’s website as “Part Brothers Grimm, part Buffy with a dash of Cassandra Clare,” I was never going to be able to resist Banished.  I don’t usually read very much urban fantasy, but I’m excited about this one.

Urban Fantasy | Faerie | Romance

Dear Killer

Dear Killer has really mixed reviews on goodreads right now, but I think I’m just too curious to resist reading it!   A killer as the main character? In a YA book WITHOUT ROMANCE? This is too unique for me to pass up.

Murder | Mystery | Thriller

Prisoneprisoner of night and fogr of Night and Fog

This sounds amazing.  Gretchen has grown up the darling of her family, and her uncle – Adolf Hitler.  When forced to face some uncomfortable truths, Gretchen must decide whether her loyalties truly lie with the family she’s always known and loved.

Historical fiction | Nazi Germany

Beware the Wild (no cover image yet)

A second creepy-ish sounding title for the self-professed wimp.  The swamp in  the centre of the village has always been creepy, but when Sterling’s brother goes missing in it, things become even more disturbing.  Months later a girl appears from the swamp determined to take over Sterling’s brother’s life.  Most disturbing of all? No one except Sterling seems to even remember her brother existed…

Southern Gothic | Thriller | Fantasy | Mystery
