Top Ten 2016 Debuts Novels I Are Looking Forward To


Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.













1. The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapbood: Holes in space-time...

2. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: Girls with magical horses has been one of my things since forever.

3. Love, Lies,and Spies by Cindy Anstey: I really like the cover...

4. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Choksi: This one sounds interesting. I do so enjoy girl-accidentally-becomes-queen stories.

5. Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh: Witches and a murder mystery rolled into one...



6. The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig: Time travel! Time travel! Time travel!

7. A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann: This one sounds eerie.

8. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallard: Despite the fact that twists on Sherlock Holmes rarely work for me, I can't not try.

9. The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude: Gothics.

10. The Reader by Traci Chee: This one sounds a little trope-y, but it might be fun.

  1. I vaguely remember reading about "Square Root." As I recall it did sound really good. Numbers 6 and 8 made my list too. :)

    1. I'll admit I was definitely drawn to the vividness of the colours on the cover (and also prodigies, prodigies are always fun).

  3. I am seeing THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE on a lot of lists. It must be getting a lot of press which makes me want to look into it.
    I honestly don't pay much attention to upcoming debut books or authors. I went off the board this week and hope I have provided a service at the same time for holiday shopping tips for book lovers. My Top Ten Tuesday list

  4. I haven't heard of The May Queen Murders, definitely worth checking out. I'm interested with most of the books in your list, can't wait for them to come out. I swear 2016 is a fantastic reading year, and these are just debut authors!

    1. The May Queen Murders was a recent discovery for me, but it sounds like it should be an interesting read.

    1. Was it the cover? The cover seems to be getting a bit of love in the comments here today. It does sound like it should be an interesting one (would we call the genre Historical Paranormal? Is that a thing?)

  8. Yay! Love, Lies & Spies is getting some love! :)
