Top Ten 2013 Debuts I'm Looking Forward To

I'm anticipating a lot of books this year, but I wasn't sure how many of them were debuts. So I did some Goodreads-ing and came up with ten of them. Enjoy!

The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray: This is one of my most anticipated books of the year, especially since the characters have to portray tragic literary couples. How awesome is that?!

Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza: Mila is an android, this is Bourne Identity-esque, and the cover is awesome. I can't wait to dig into my ARC.

Taken by Erin Bowman: Super stoked to read this one--I heard about it last year and have been interested ever since. I think the concept is interesting, and I really like the cover. I hope it's good!

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett: The main character is a Nightmare--not as in "oh, she's scary!" No. She's an actual Nightmare. Cool, cool, cool!

Triangles by Kimberly Ann Miller: A girl is stuck in the Bermuda Triangle with two hot guys. Yes, yes, yes!

Poison by Bridget Zinn: A girl's a potion master, there's a kingdom, she has to poison her best friend...And there's a "too-cute pig." A PIG. *grabby hands*

Splintered by A.G. Howard: So this one has already been released, but it still came out this year, so it totally counts. I've heard it's an awesome retelling of Alice in Wonderland, and I can't wait to read it.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke: This just sounds creepy, which I like. And this line is awesome: "You stop fearing the devil when you're holding his hand..."

The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepard: I'm three chapters into this right now and am already really intrigued. As the daughter of madman Henry Moreau, scary things are bound to happen. I hope it stays great!

Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook: It's kind of like a Bonnie and Clyde retelling, which sounds awesome. I don't think this will be your average romance, either. And it's a local author, so bonus points! Reading soon!

What debuts are you looking forward to this year? Tell me in the comments!


  1. I am looking forward to Taken as well--maybe more than every other debut on my list. I am totally in love with the cover, and that alone would make me want to read it. The summary just fueled my interest even more.

  2. I had totally forgotten about The Dollhouse. Definitely going to add that to my list. I'm excited for The Nightmare Affair and Pivot Point. On. and Triangles. =]

  3. Oooh we have a few in common and some are on my TBR but didn't make the list! Never heard of The Dollhouse one though. Madman's Daughter was so good and I'm planning on starting Mila soon because it just sounds sooo good! SO many good debuts this year!

  4. Great list! I hadn't heard of The Dollhouse Asylum, but the idea of people having to play tragic literary couples sounds like fun. And The Nightmare makes me want to pick it up by its cover art alone. :)

  5. Oooh! Dollhouse Asylum is new to me. Love the cover. I'll be watching for that one later this year. Thanks for the heads up. http://wp.me/pzUn5-1lO

  6. Taken and Poison are both on my list this week too. I think Poison is one of the ten that I'm MOST excited about :)

  7. The Nightmare Affair and Poison are on my list, too. So many awesome debuts! It's going to be a great book year :)

  8. I hadn't heard of the Dollhouse Asylum. Thanks so much for sharing.
