Top Ten 2014 Debuts I'm Excited For

Debuts are one of my favourite parts of the new year. I recently relaunched my Debut Showcase feature which I started last year, which talks about the debuts that I'm excited for each month. I love discovering new authors, especially when they shoot up to my Must Buy list, like Jennifer Rush and Kasie West!

This book hasn't been getting the best reviews since review copies have been given out, but I'm excited for it nonetheless. I always enjoy seeing if a book is as fantastic as the hype suggests, or if it's a load of overhyped tripe.
"Downton Abbey meets The Selection" makes me hesitant, but once again, I don't care. Apparently this is about rebellion, so that means I must check it out.
The characters in this book have 365 days to escape the island, or they die. Now tell me that doesn't sound exciting!
This is about a girl who is banished from a male-dominated spaceship. It's been likened to The Handmaid's Tale. IS THIS GOING TO BE A BOOK ABOUT FEMINISM BECAUSE YES PLEASE.
I'm excited about this one because everyone else is. What? I get pulled into the hype sometimes.
This is about some sort of abuse, which always hits close to home. I'm hoping it's going to be an excellent read like If You Find Me and Pretty Girl Thirteen.
Mostly because I like the cover.
This is about a band of super-criminals with powers and X-Men-like abilities, and how could I not be excited for it!?
This sound really mysterious. I skimmed the summary, and I didn't really catch what it was about. Eep!
This is basically The Tribe in book format. I loved that TV show when I was younger, so I'm excited to see a similar story play out on the page. Hopefully it's not too much of a rip off!


  1. The Murder Complex and Landry Park made it on my list, too. I hope Salvage is really going to be in Handmaid's Tale style and about feminism, I'd love to read that! :) Illusive sounds really cool but superpowers can be either hit or miss. I hope you get these soon :)

  2. Nice list! The Murder Complex and Love Letters to the Dead seem intriguing, I'm gonna check those out. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy reading, and happy Tuesday.

  3. I have The Murder Complex, Landry Park and Illusive on my list as well, I especially more excited on Illusive since I'm a fan of X-Men. I hope it would be really as good as I expected. I just found Nil from your list and definitely will add it to my TBR list. Yes that sounds very exciting! =D

    Thank for sharing the great list!

  4. I'm soooo excited to read The Murder Complex. I haven't actually read the synopsis or anything so I have no idea what it's about. But sometimes certain books just give me this really good feeling and I'm certain I'm going to love it. I've never heard of End Times so I'm going to go check it out now!

  5. Yes to all of these, especially the first three! So pumped for these! Awesome list!

  6. Love Letters to the Dead <333 I haven't seen this get too much love yet but I cannot wait to read it! Great list

  7. I've noticed Murder Complex is on a lot of ppl's TTT's today--I bet it'll be good.

  8. Nil and Love Letters to the Dead are on my list too! Landry Park sounds interesting. I tried watching Downton Abbey and couldn't get into it, but I think I might like it better in book form? Also, I loved The Selection. And if it's about rebellion? I'm so in.

  9. I see FEMINISM in capitals. Looks like I'll be reading that book then!

    1. Also, superheroes!! I've never actually READ about superheroes. It's all been tv shows and films. I better get on this!

  10. Oh my goodness! So many books coming out, with so little time to read them all. I'm really super excited for Landry Park, Salvage, and Open Road Summer. Those titles have definitely caught my eye. Fantastic list! :)

    Happy Reading!

    TTT: 2014 Debuts I'm Excited For!

  11. We share six titles on our lists and OMG, sooo excited! To be honest, I'm excited for all of them because science fiction, murders, road trip, letters and superpowers. Gimme all of it.

    Yay for all the books. =D

  12. Landry Park is on my list too...can't wait! And Nil sound really good, I'm adding that to my TBR list. Salvage was so good, I was really impressed with it. I wrote a review recently if you would like to read it. I should have included that one on my list, but I picked ones I haven't read yet. Great list! ~Pam

  13. Great list! I'm so excited for so many of these and a few made my list too. Love Letters to the Dead is one that I am absolutely dying to get my hands on! 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.

  14. Yes, Nil sounds thrilling :D I hope to get a creepy story with The murder complex. The cover from End times is pretty and I'm all in for a witch book like Half bad!

  15. Excellent choices! I'm really exicted for Nil and Love Letters. I heard about Salvage on tea time the other day and it sounds amazing!

  16. I'm honestly not sure if I'll like The Murder Complex but I'M CURIOUS. It's dystopia so eh. But hype. "The Selection" OKAY NO THANKS. Nil sounds pretty good but I'm not sure if I'll like it so you have to read it and tell me. :)

    HALF BAD SOUNDS GOOD BECAUSE MAGICCC. Love Letters to the Dead was good but it's no If You Find Me. In fact, I'm still not sure what to think of it. It might be 3.5 for me. Also, I'm excited for the superpower book because superpowers.
