Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that other bloggers are welcome to join in, to create Top Ten lists on varying topics. Today it’s Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015


the storyspinner

1 The Storyspinner

by Becky Wallace
Released 3rd March 2015

A lost princess, suspected dead. Dukes fighting for her throne and an orphaned girl forced out of the life she’s known.Plus the girl on the front has a bow.

Pretty much sounds perfect. While there are some likely obvious things going on here, the main character is likely the princess, the duke she works for will be her love interest, who is fighting for her throne so can she really trust him? Blah blah blah it’s a little different and just the kind of story I like to read.

i am her revenge

2 I Am Her Revenge

by Meredith Moore
Released 1st May 2015

Revenge. Revenge for what? And to raise a child to do it!!!

Basically the whole thing sounds interesting. I’m hoping she wont ruin Ben, poor Ben. Whomever he is. I also hope she gets to be herself, whomever THAT is…


the oathbreakers shadow

3 The Oathbreaker’s Shadow

by Amy McCulloch
Released 8th February 2015

This is confusing, apparently it’s already been published before, so I guess it doesn’t count, except it sounds so good so I’m adding it.

What was his oath? How do the knots flame? So intrigued.


4 Second Star

by Louise Gann

This is set for a January 2015 release but as yet there seems to be no cover and Amazon has no idea what I’m talking about.

It seems that the supernatural creature of the moment has become the jinn (genies). This one seems a little different in that the main character has to try and prevent the jinn she’s found from destroying the world while getting him to help with the bad guy, which just sounds like it should be hilarious. Considering the comments from the author on this and another book, I have high hopes for that hilarity.

5 Hunger, Heart, Fuel, Nation

by Tessa Elwood

Also without a cover and set for release in the fall of 2015 this book seems just as mysterious.

Just as long as the ‘sworn enemy’ is not the house she’s about to be married into…



Tiny Pretty Things

6 Tiny Pretty Things

Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton
Released May 26th 2015.

Tiny Pretty Things has been described as Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars and I can’t say that hasn’t got me intrigued.





sacred minnow


7 The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly

by Stephanie Oakes
Released June 9th 2015.

I think I’ve mentioned this book before but I’m so excited by the idea of a modern retelling of The Grimm fairy tale, “The Handless Maiden”, that I just had to have it on my top-ten of debut authors too!

I can’t wait to see if this is as good as it sounds.



Written in the stars

8 Written in the Stars

by Aisha Saeed
Released March 24th 2015.

This isn’t my usual genre but I was intrigued but the interesting storyline. It’s a contemporary young adult romance that bravely tackles the idea of arranged marriage within cultural traditions. I’ve never read anything like this and I’d like to see how the idea is put across to Young Adults.


one of the guys

9 One of the Guys

by Lisa Aldin
Released February 10th 2015.

I must admit I applied for this on netgalley but got turned down. I loved the sound of Rent-A-Gent and the idea of fake dates. There’s always a predictable romance but I love that. I think I will still buy this one.





a wicked thing

10 A Wicked Thing

by Rhiannon Thomas
Released February 24th 2015.

This is yet another retelling (can you tell that we love a retelling here at Paein and Ms4Tune). This ones Sleeping Beauty but this one is more about what happens after – you know in the Happily Ever After part – and Princess Aurora isn’t entirely sure she is living happily ever after.

    AWESOME LIST! I’ll be sure to check these books out. Although I wished I had debut books to put on my post too. Esp. pretty little things.

    1. Ms4Tune

      Hi Christine, I hope our list has helped you find a couple of debuts to get excited about now. I love a good series though, so I love that your list is full of sequels, means the series must be good. I will have to check them out :)

    1. Ms4Tune

      Hi AudaciousTori! Oh my gosh I love your list! I’d heard of a few of them but I must admit I have just added the rest of the list to my TBR shelf lol. I love the sound of In a World Just Right by Jen Brooks and The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker. I may have to do some more pre-ordering!

  2. Broc's Bookcase

    I feel kinda bad for the girl in I Am Her Revenge getting brought up to basically be a weapon for her mothers broken heart. I mean most of us just eat a whole tub of ice cream! We don’t raise children to act out our revenge. Still, I’m kind of intrigued. I will probably be reading it! One of the Guys sounds good. I totally laughed when I read the description. Sounds like fun!Great list!!! Happy Reading! :)

    1. Paein

      Me too! I want to know if she gets her own life at the end and I also wonder if she’s the guys daughter, it’d almost be worse if she weren’t.
      It sound terribly fun, I’ve had to add it to my lists too. I’m happy to see it seems to be a standalone.

      Thanks, same to you!
