Top Ten Tuesday

Posted January 6, 2015 by in General / 14 Comments

This week’s theme from The Broke and the Bookish is “top ten debuts you’re looking forward to in 2015”. I didn’t actually know much about who had a debut coming out, so I ended up turning to Goodreads lists. These are mostly YA books, since I couldn’t find convenient lists of upcoming fantasy. Clearly I am not very plugged in to what’s coming out soon!

Since these are upcoming books, I’m gonna link the titles to the Goodreads page so other people can check them out in more detail.

  1. Red QueenVictoria Aveyard. I’ve been looking at this one for a while, at least — I kept seeing it in other people’s StS posts and such. It sounds interesting, though I can’t say I really know much about it beyond the basic summary.
  2. The Girl at MidnightMelissa Grey. I hadn’t heard of this one till I started making this list, actually; I’m intrigued by the idea, and I do always love the ‘there’s-a-city-below-the-city’ trope (Neverwhere, Un Lun Dun, King Rat, etc).
  3. ShutterCourtney Almada. The cover looks really freaky, and it sounds fun. I’ve seen a couple of advance reviews already and my interest is definitely piqued.
  4. A Wicked ThingRhiannon Thomas. It’s a Sleeping Beauty rewrite, shut up and take my money.
  5. The StoryspinnerBecky Wallace. There’s a touch of the troubadour tradition about the idea of the Performers, so yeah, I’m in on this one.
  6. The Wrath and the Dawn, Renee Ahdieh. Definitely want this one — it’s a reworking of Scheherazade’s story, and it sounds like it has an interesting take on it.
  7. The Invisible LibraryGenevieve Cogman. You had me at ‘library’. (Have bought it since I made the list!)
  8. An Ember in the AshesSabaa Tahir. Set in a Rome-like world, you say? Rebel Scholars, you say? Gimme!
  9. The Witch HunterVirginia Boecker. Seems like my kind of book, especially with the comparison to Graceling.
  10. The Unhappening of Genesis LeeShallee McArthur. I read a review of this and it intrigues me, though I’m sort of side-eyeing that new title trend of ‘the [x]ing of [name]’ (e.g. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer).

I’m obviously in need of more titles, so I’m definitely going to be paying attention to TTTs this week…

  1. Red Queen seems to be a popular choice, but I still have barely any idea what it’s about. It does look good though. And I only discovered A Wicked Thing today, but it sounds awesome! I can’t wait to read it.

  2. Great list! I think I’ve already read one (Genesis Lee), I snapped up The Invisible Library before Christmas and I have ARC’s of a couple of the others which I really need to start soon. Hope you get to read some of them soon 🙂

  3. You crack me up – “A Wicked Thing, Rhiannon Thomas. It’s a Sleeping Beauty rewrite, shut up and take my money.” That’s totally my view as well.
    The Invisible Library sounds AMAZING.
