Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Debuts

**Quick Announcement: On Wednesday and Thursday of this week Quantum Entanglement, book 2 of Interchron, will be FREE on Amazon. I'll announce it again on Wed, but just wanted everyone a heads-up.**

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Top 10 2014 Debuts I'm Excited For (pictures courtesy of goodreads.com unless otherwise linked)

This one's kind of difficult for me. I don't pay a whole lot of attention to debuts. I just have books on my TBR I want to read, and if they happen to be debuts, great, but I don't specifically look for that. So, I had to kind of hunt for these. They're the ones I found on my TBR list that just happen to be debuts. In no particular order:

8. Sing Sweet Nightingale by Erica Cameron -- Just an interesting sounding premise. It kind of has a greek gods or perhaps angel/demon kind of feel to it.

7. Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson -- This one seems creepy and like it might be kind of psychological. A fun read all around.

6. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller -- Well, there's that title, first of all. And who doesn't love a little early twentieth-century scandal every now and again? 

5. Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell -- This starts with a list of rules to live by, which means the story will be structured well. It'll definitely be creepy and psychological, with vast, eerie character sketches. Can't wait!

4. Nil by Lynne Matson -- This seems like Lost meets Robert Heinlein. I hope it's super well-written because it sounds fabulous.

3. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Comings -- A dark, somewhat dystopian thriller where the murder rate is higher than the birth rate. Very intriguing concept.

2. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge -- I think we'll see this one on a lot of lists. It's getting a lot of hype, and for good reason. Gotta love fairy tale retellings! :D

1. Citadels of Fire by Yours Truly -- Okay, I'm totally cheating putting my book on here. Obviously it's not my debut. It's not even my debut under this pen name. But it IS my HISTORICAL FICTION debut. Plus, it's my blog. So there. :D

That's it for me! What 2014 debuts are YOU looking forward to?


  1. I just started Cruel Beauty. I have heard mostly good things about it so I'm super excited. I'm so mad at myself though. I didn't include Dear Killer or A Mad, Wicked Folly, both of which I'm really really excited for too.

    1. You know, I don't pay much attention to debuts, but just looked through my TBR and found several that happened to be them. Hopping around to other people's blogs, though, there are tons! Way more than ten, so it'd be easy to forget some. :D

  2. I love the cover for Citadels of Fire! A lot!

    1. Thanks so much, Jessica! I'm thrilled with it as well! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. The Murder Complex is very popular. Which btw is amazing!

    Check our TTT of this week.

  5. Lots of The Murder Complex today! I cannot wait for Cruel Beauty either! And Servants of the Storm is on my list, but didn't get into my top 10 list!! Needed to do 10 YA and 10 Adult!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Right? I don't pay much attention to debuts, but there are tons of them, more than enough to fill lots of lists. Thanks Jessica! :D

  6. I just added Dear Killer and The Murder Complex to my TBr today. Your list is awesome, Liesel.

    Happy Tuesday.

    1. Thanks Lexxie! I loved yours too! :D Thanks for visiting.

  7. Lots of Cruel Beauty and Murder Complex on everyone's list. Great list with some different ones. Still love your cover :)

  8. Great list! I'm quite excited for a few of these myself, and quite a few made my list too. There seems to be so many good books coming out in 2014, I'm not sure where I'll find the time to read them all. I hope you get to all of your picks :) My TTT.
