My Top Ten 2014 Debuts I'm Excited to Read

This week's top 10 takes a closer look at the 2014 debut novels.  Not sure what this means? We're talking about an author's work that debuts as their first work of publication.  It's exciting to discover an author by their first published novel and then continue to follow their work as they publish more.  Some of my favorite authors were discovered this way.

Which 2014 debuts are you most excited for? Are any of these on your to-be-read list? Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

  1. We all are putting the same books on ur lists haha! I didn't know 17 First Kisses was a debut tho! Isn't the cover to Pointe SO PRETTY?!

    My TTT

  2. I'm so excited for Pointe! A few people I know have read it already and have said that it's AMAZING. I pretty much want to read everything on your list, though. This year is going to be awesome for contemporary YA!

  3. I'm not sure why Pointe excites me so much, but I can't wait for it to come out so I can read it. And Open Road Summer? YES please! oh and I think I'm reading Side Effect May Vary next. :-)

    My TTT List

  4. Sooo many of these are on my "can't wait to read!" lists too -- nice choices!

  5. I am so looking forward to Open Road Summer, it looks like a great summer contemporary! Pointe looks incredible too, and I love the sound of Breakfast Served Anytime. I'm looking forward to pretty much every single one of these books as well, so I'm hopeful that they're as good as they look like they're going to be!

  6. Wow! You have a super awesome list here of new debuts and some really fantastic choices! I can't wait to read some of these myself, especially Pointe, Side Effects May Vary, and 17 First Kisses!

    Happy Reading!

Love Letters to the Dead and Side Effects May Vary are the two I am most looking forward to reading, they both look so good! There seems to be so many good books coming out in 2014, I'm not sure where I'll find the time to read them all. I hope you get to all of your picks :) My TTT.
