Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2014 Debuts I'm Excited For

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish
My 2014 list is mainly sequels, or authors that have already published something, which I may or may not have read. Going solely by synopsis, there aren't that many debuts that have caught my attention. I have never chosen books specifically because they are debut novels. I just go with what interests me. If  it happens to be a debut, it has very little to do with why I read it.

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1)
The Falconer by Elizabeth May
As far as I can tell this is debuting in North America this year. I think it was released in the UK last September, but it hasn't been available on this side of the ocean yet. (I think). Any way, I'm looking forward to this one. It's set in Scotland if I'm not mistaken, and the main character is a faery hunter.

Trust Me, I'm Lying
Trust Me, I'm Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer
The main character is a con artist and master of disguise who comes home to find her house ransacked and her father missing. There's not much more in the synopsis, and I'm hoping for a mystery.

Wild by Alex Mallory
Modern retelling of Tarzan-ish.

All That Glows
All That Glows by Ryan Graudin
I'm hit and miss with books about the fae, but I can't seem to avoid giving most of the ones I come across a try. (I'm actually hit and miss with almost all books so I'm not sure if that says much...) But I always seem to try it, because I somehow find them fascinating.

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)
Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
I do enjoy my high fantasy.

The Islands at the End of the World
The Islands at the End of the World by Austin Aslan
I don't know very much about Hawaii. Though I've kind of gone off dystopian recently, I'm going to put this on the list anyway, because I still think that I might give it a go.

I didn't make it to ten. I considered trying to find more that I was kind of looking forward to, but I figured it would be better to only share the ones that I actually am anticipating in any sense. There are likely to be some books that I pick up this year that I did not know were debuts, or that I didn't know were coming out at all.

  2. Trust me I am lying sounds really interesting, very different from what I have been reading at the moment.

    Here's my TTT: http://theirishbookworm.blogspot.ie/2014/01/top-10-2014-debuts-im-excited-for.html

    1. Your list looks a little darker than mine does... especially The Murder Complex. Either way, there are certainly some interesting debuts on the horizon.

  3. Thank you for including my book Trust Me, I'm Lying in your list! I hope you like it! :-D

    1. I'm looking forward to it. And congratulations on your debut novel!
