Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. This week, it’s time to talk about 2017 debut authors again. More specifically, I’m here to talk about 10 debut books I’m looking forward to in 2017!
Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones // This one I’ve actually seen on quite a few blogs already. Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell. That’s the first line of the synopsis. I’m already in. I haven’t read nearly enough goblin stories.
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller // This has also been making the rounds in the book community. It sounds absolutely epic.
Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta // So what I got from the synopsis is that the MC has to work with a power-hungry princess and smuggle magic into a kingdom. Sounds pretty epic, don’t you think?
The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski // I think this is about a girl whose father goes missing while patrolling the woods they are responsible for. Or something like that…
City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson // I think this is a YA murder mystery, and it’s set in Kenya. Yes please! That sounds absolutely amazing. And I really like the title.
Cold Summer by Gwen Cole // This was about a teenager who can (accidentally) time travel. He ends up in WWII – and then gets back with PTSD. Or he may be dead? Obviously, I have no clue what I’m talking about. It’s about time travel. And WWII. That’s it.
Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts // A fantasy book about a group of royal bastards who befriend the princess who chooses to sit at their table and witness a murder. That’s what I got from the synopsis -don’t murder me if I end up being wrong.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon // This seems like such a cute book. Also, yay diversity!
Cinderella, Necromancer by F.M. Boughan // I can’t say I’ve ever read a Cinderella retelling in which Cinderella is a necromancer. I hope it’s a good one!
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody // This is about an illusion-worker who has created a family for herself through illusions. The illusions have their own personalities, but obviously are not truly alive. Or that’s what she thought until one gets murdered. DOESN’T THAT SOUND SO GOOD?
Those are 10 debut books I’m looking forward to reading in 2017! Have you read an ARC of any of them? Are you excited to read these?
