Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015

*in no particular order

Hmm...well I just went through my release list and I don't have a whole lot of debut authors...so far! It tends to happen that I will pick something up after reviews of said title! Here's what I got though:

1. The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy--saw this one just last week on WoW day at a fellow blogger's blog and it sounds sooo good! Creepy good! ;)
2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard--been hearing a lot of buzz over this one! Sounds intriguing and loving the cover!
3. The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey--remember hearing about this one last year too! Sounds exciting and again, COVER LOVE!

4. A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas--a Sleeping Beauty sequel-esque story? YES PLEASE!
5. The Wrath of Dawn by Renee Ahdieh--this one sounds kind of intriguing as well! Might wait for some reviews before taking it on though!
6. The Leveller by Julia Durango--another dystopian that sounds exciting!

7. The Cage by Megan Shepherd--yes not a "debut" technically. Though it is a new to me author with a new series, so I'm gonna count it since I apparently don't have anymore debuts on my list! And a few of the above ones were ones I happened upon while looking for pictures of the ones on my list! :)


  1. Snow Like Ashes looks good! I'm adding that one to the list. And it looks like 2015 is going to have some great debuts! I'm loving all of the covers.
