Today's Topic

Top Ten 2017 YA Debuts I'm Excited For


  • I had really good luck with Debuts in 2016-- I basically spent the first half of the year obsessed with them.  So this year I have high hopes!!  Here are the ones that have caught my eye so far:



1.  One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus- Someone gets killed in detention!!  I mean, it's like The Breakfast Club, but with a killer!!

2.  After the Fall by Kate Hart- I love a complicated relationships book-- and THE COVER!

3.  The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danielle Mages Amato- I love that this book has a little bit of a supernatural/psychic element to it.

4.  Antisocial by Jillian Blake- I'm kind of a sucker for the "cautionary tale".

5.  The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy- The atmosphere of this book sounds amazing.  I'm super curious about it because it supposedly has a lot of literary references in it :)





6.  The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin- The cover is adorable-- and it's about a girl in community college.  I don't know if it's the actual fall semester or the summer after HS, but still: COLLEGE!!

7.  Grit by Gillian French- This book is SO "me".  It's about the "town slut"/reputations, a missing/possibly dead girl, secrets, mysteries-- basically everything I love.

8.  The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles- Another fantasy!!  WOOO!!  See how adventurous I'm getting- hahaha.  But this is one I've been wanting to read for almost a full year now.

9.  Of Jenny and the Aliens by Ryan Gebhart- Doesn't this just sound fun??  AND it's a book about the guy being in love/obsessed with the girl and her being like MEH.  I love that!!

10.  A List of Cages by Robin Roe- SO EXCITED TO READ THIS!!  It sounds totally emotional and meaningful and just so many feelings!!




What 2017 Debuts are you excited to read??

  3. A lot of these sound really good. I'm super excited about One of Us is Lying. Antisocial and The Hidden Memory of Objects both sound really good and are new to me. Totally adding them to the TBR. You know what I will not be adding, the alien one. If it wasn't about aliens I would be all about it but no, hard pass.
