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
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.
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…
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…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
