Top Ten 2014 Debuts I'm Excited For

There are so many debuts this year that sound amazing, so making this list was kind of hard! To slightly help keep the list manageable, I've only listed debuts that have covers. (And I may have cheated and mentioned books I already have, oops!)

HELLO, Beauty and the Beast retelling!

It takes place on an island, so I'm sold.

Yeah, witches are cool, but so is this cover (I'd totally frame that face and put it on my wall).

The synopsis had me at "Kurt Cobain."

This just sounds cute!

The title always makes me think of Breakfast at Tiffany's, and there's a guy who dresses like the Mad Hatter.

A road trip that's a concert tour, yesss!

I'm not big on history, but I'd totally read a book about Adolf Hitler's niece-of-sorts.

If I were to judge a book by a cover, I'd totally read this.

I'm not even really sure what this is about, but I love maps, and cover, I like you.


  1. I have lots of these on my list as well! I'll be checking out the ones that weren't!

  2. I also have Cruel Beauty and Half Bad on my list. Open Road Summer, Nil, Breakfast Served Anytime, Prisoner of Night and Fog, and Let's Get Lost all sound interesting and I'll be adding them to my TBR pile! Thanks for sharing. ♥♥♥

  3. OH SNAP! You're reading VA right now??! Ahhhhh!!! Okay, now that I got that out. I had Open Road Summer and The Break Up Artist on my list too. I'm also going to be on the lookout for Summer on the Short Bus and Love Letters to the Dead1

  4. *rounds of applause* I LOVE your list. This weeks topic was super hard and I totally feel like you nailed what I was aiming for. You have a great list (and I'm not just saying that because of the overlap) that's really well rounded.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. THANKS A LOT for point out my utter observational FAIL, I had no idea the cover of Half Bad was anything other than swirly smoke/blood and vertical text. HELLO FACE. -_-

    Also you have a LOT on here that I haven't even heard of! :O Breakfast Served Anytime? A guy who dresses like the Mad Hatter? SOLD.

  6. Great list! I can't wait to read Cruel Beauty. It sounds so good. I also love the look of Open Road Summer.

  7. We have some in common!

    Check our TTT of this week.

  8. That Half Blood cover! Gimme!
    I hadn't heard of Breakfast Served Anytime or Let's Get Lost by I love the Madhatter and maps so I'm in!

  9. We have so many matches this time around! Even Summer on the Short Bus!

  10. That Let's Get Lost cover is really cool. It looks like a roadtrip book?? I've never seen it before so I'm not sure, but I like it. I can't wait to read Love Letters to the Dead. It looks really good. And I didn't realize Cruel Beauty was a Beauty and the Beast retelling! Cool stuff!!

    My TTT

  11. Great list! I also have HALF BAD on mine, and I'm dying to read LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD, even though I don't read much contemporary. Hope you get to read them all! Here's my Top Ten.

  12. Nil was an interesting read for me. I'm still not fully sure what I think about it. Break Up Artist, Prisoner, Open Road Summer and Half Bad too for sure! Awesome list Rachel!

  13. Good job on your list! I'm so excited for Nil! There were a few in here that I hadn't heard of so I'm excited to go check those out :)

    Happy reading!

  14. Ahhhh some great choices :). Cruel Beauty is absolutely fantastic!

    My TTT :)

  15. Great list! I'm so excited for so many of these and they made my list too. I'm so excited for Love Letters to the Dead, I really can't wait to read that one. 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.
