2017 Debuts You Are Excited For

-There is already a ton of hype for well established authors, but here is an opportunity to discuss some debut (new) authors and showcase their books. There are plenty of debut author challenges and lists you can find if you are having trouble with this one 🙂

I’m really looking forward to reading all of these books. 

Caraval by Stephanie Garber 

This is a fantasy young adult book that I’m really looking forward to read. The synopsis of this book sounds really interesting and exctincting, and I have heard great things about it from people who have gotten early copies. I bet this book is going to be on a lot of peoples T5W this week.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

This book sounds like an interesting young adult, contemporary book, that has the very important and current topic in today’s society: The Black Lives matter movement.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl’s struggle for justice. –Goodreads

A List Of Cages by Robin Roe

I have seen this contemporary YA book around the book community lately, but it was Emma from EMMABOOKS (on youtube) that sold this book for me. Go and read her Goodreads review on this book. LINK

Gilded Cage by Vic James

Another fantasy YA book that sounds like a really interesting and exciting read.

Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza

I have to admit that I had to do some research on books from debut authors, and I came over a list containing this book. This is what they wrote about this book:

This is intergalactic space opera Game of Thrones with a diverse cast and a kick-ass female protagonist. –

Can it be any better than this? This book sounds amazing.

  1. Empress of a Thousand Skies sounds really cool!!
    I’m looking forward to reading One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus. The blurb makes it sound sort of like a mashup between The Breakfast Club and a murder-mystery.
