Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2015 Debuts I'm Excited About

All of the people on this list are NOT debut authors, but these books are their debut into either Young Adult or Middle Grade. This List took me a while to put together because I got super distracted searching through Goodreads for them and just about doubled the length of my TBR list. Oops! 
Book Tittles Link to Goodreads!

                                 


1. Tangled Webs, Lee Bross-- Historical fiction dramas are my guilty pleasure. This one looks so entertaining and fun. 
Release date: June 23rd

2. Lock and Mori, Heather Petty-- Female Moriarity teams up with classmate Sherlock Homes in a modern day London high school to solve crime, and it's the first in a trilogy; this sounds perfect.
Release date: September 15th

3. In a World Just Right, Jen Brooks-- I'm really intrigued by the concept of alternate realities in this book.
Release date: April 28th



4. 5 to 1, Holly Bodger-- This books sounds really interesting. It's dystopian set in India and I'm speculating feminist themes- quite a unique combination for YA. 
Release date: May 12th

5. Red Queen, Victoria Aveyard-- Everyone and their dog is excited for this one! 
Release Date: February 10th 

6. The Invisible Library, Genevieve Cogman-- I'm not sure if this one is Middle Grade or YA, but it has a kick-ass female librarian spy and an alternate London so I'm super excited for this one.
Release date: January 15th 


7. Only Ever Yours, Louise O'Neil -- This YA debut sounds pretty intense and thought provoking. In this world, girls are created for and live for the pleasure of men. I'm really excited to see more YA books that are heavy on feminist themes, and that are raising awareness about our current gender issues. 
EDIT: I released this one is already out after making this post, but I'm still excited to read it, so I thought I would keep it on the list!

8. Monstrous, MarcyKate Connolly-- This one is described as a mix of Frankenstein and The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales; a girl with wings and a tail spends her life hiding and only coming out at night, until she is accidentally seen by a human boy and they become friends. 
Release date: February 10th 

9. Beastkeeper, Cat Hellisen-- A Middle Grade debut that contains secret magic, family curses, and the ruins of a castle. 
Release date: February 3rd 

10. Watch the Sky, Kirsten Hubbard-- This one sounds kinda bizarre, but amazing bizarre. A young boy's stepfather is determined the end of the world is approaching and makes his family dig a huge hole for a shelter in their backyard- but is that the real reason their digging?  
Release date: April 7th

  14. Only Ever Yours is a debut in the US this year, so it works ;) And it is AMAZING. Seriously, read it. I mean, it is horrifying, but it is amazing. And it is Louise O'Neill's debut, so yeah. Keep it! Anyway, YES to all the others! I didn't realize that 5 to 1 was a debut, or I'd have had another on my list! I am really looking forward to Watch the Sky and Red Queen as well! Amazing list!

  16. I hadn't heard of these and I'm really interested to look them up on Goodreads and find out more. Lock & Mori sounds really interesting- I love Sherlock Holmes stories. Red Queen was on my list as well, and I'm definitely going to be looking up a few more of these. I hadn't heard of several of the ones on your list and so I'm excited to find out more about some new 2015 debuts!

  17. Oh, my goodness! There are so many great books on this list that I totally missed! I've gone right ahead and added In a World Just Right to my list. I totally overlooked it because the cover didn't grab me, but it's a multiverse and that's like my favorite fantasy subgenre.

    5 to 1 has a beautiful cover, on the other hand, but I didn't see it and now I can't wait to read it. Wow!

    (I apologize if you receive this comment multiple times. I'm having all sorts of problems getting this to post.)
