Top Ten 2016 Debut Novels We Are Looking Forward To

Top Ten Tuesdays is an original feature created by The Broke and The Bookish and you can find their page here. This is one of those topics I initially thought I would struggle with, only to find there are so, so many exciting debuts coming out next year!

1) Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie
Burning Glass
Emperor's and magic and potential betrayal! Sign me up!

2) Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto
Revenge and the Wild
Revenge. I need to know absolutely nothing else. I love revenge stories.

3) These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
These Vicious Masks
"Jane Austen meets X-Men". I don't think I have ever read a more enticing description.

4) Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers
Assassin's Heart
Just - Assassins. I need more of them.

5) Bleeding Earth by Kaitlin Ward
Bleeding Earth
I love the cover of this. I'm not 100% sure of the plot but it sounds intriguing.

6) Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace
Shallow Graves
"Her end was just the beginning" - the cover looks creepy and yet kind of pretty.

7) The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Hellig
The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)
I'm not always a huge fan of time travel (my brain just can't handle the paradoxes apparently) but this one sounds great.

8) Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan
Sword and Verse
I just really need to read more fantasy. And this sounds spectacular.

9) Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake
Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1)
I hadn't heard of this one until I started searching for debuts, but libraries? I love books about books.

10) The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
The Crown's Game (The Crown's Game, #1)
Not sure why I didn't put this one at the top because I am definitely very excited for this. Very.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading

I am getting read to read an ARC of Thief of Lies this month. Your list looks great and we share a few in common. I really want to read Shallow Graves although I have seen a few mixed reviews so far.

Molly's Book Nook said...

Revenge and The Wild, Blackhearts, The Crown's Game and The Girl From Everywhere! There are so many timetravel/pirate/western type books coming out next year (obviously excluding Crown's Game) - I'm pretty excited!

Here is my TTT!

Clare Stone said...

Ooh I hope you enjoy Thief of Lies! I haven't seen many reviews of Shallow Graves yet. I may steer clear so I don't get the excitement ruined for me! Hopefully we will both like it!

Clare Stone said...

I haven't read many timetravel/pirate/western books before but I feel like 2016 is going to change that in a big way! It's going to be a great reading year!

Rachel Burden said...

We have quite a few in common! 2016 is looking to be a great year for YA fantasy books, especially ones about pirates and timetravel :) Hope you get to read all of these!

Happy Reading

Clare Stone said...

And we always need more pirates! I hope I do too! I have them all pre-ordered so now all I need is the time to read them!

The Old Mother Hen said...

This is the first time that I am seeing Shallow Graves. I love the sound of every bit of it. I've added it to my TBR. Here's hoping that we both like it.

Lefty Book Lover said...

I've seen Thief of Lies quite a bit today and haven't paid much attention to it, but I just realized that it's about libraries. I love libraries, so of course I want to read it now. Great list!

Lauren Stoolfire said...

These Vicious Masks - I hadn't heard of that one until now, but it sounds awesome - I mean Austen and X-Men?! :)

Alicia AKernelofNonsense said...

Shallow Graves didn't quite make my list this week, but it is on my TBR. January is going to be full of great books!

Literary Feline said...

I The more I hear about The Girl From Everywhere, the more I want to read it. The Vicious Masks looks good too (love the cover). And I'm curious about Burning Glass. All of them really. They all sound good! Thank you for sharing!

Greg said...

X-Men meets Jane Austen- I agree that's quite the combo! I agree w/ the other commenters- 2016 looks like a great year for books, especially YA.

Carrie said...

These Vicious Masks seems so intriguing! My TTT

Tangled N Books said...

I might have to add Thief of Lies to my TBR. Thanks for sharing and for visiting our blog.

Clare Stone said...

Definitely! Apparently there are mixed reviews but it looks great!

Clare Stone said...

It amazes me that there aren't more books about libraries! Definitely excited for it!

Clare Stone said...

It sounds amazing right! It's everything I never realised I wanted!

Clare Stone said...

There aren't many being released in December but January definitely makes up for it I agree!

Clare Stone said...

I didn't pay much attention to The Girl From Everywhere at first but like you, my interest has grown. I am so excited for all the new releases though! Thanks for visiting!

Clare Stone said...

I am pretty sure X-Men meets Jane Austen can't go wrong! 2016 is going to be great!

Clare Stone said...

It's definitely one I am very excited for! Thanks for visiting!

Clare Stone said...

I'm glad I came across it! Always looking for more libraries in my books!
