Top Forty-Four Most Anticipated 2015 Debut Novels

“Top Ten Tuesday” is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!



This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Forty-Four Most Anticipated 2015 Debut Novels.

So. I might be stretching the limitations of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday a little, strictly speaking. Maybe. Possibly. In my defence, however, anyone who has taken more than the most fleeting of glimpses at the list of debuts set to be published in 2015 would feel compelled to do the same. I am absolutely overwhelmed by the wealth, creativity and, most importantly, the diversity of the titles that will be released over the course of the following year. In all honesty, there is nothing that makes me happier or more excited than discovering the work of a new debut author. While the consistency and reliability of a favourite author whose work you’re already familiar with is a blessing as well, the prospect of discovering a new voice and a new story that will remain with you for years to come is nothing short of wonderful. As of right now, I’ve been lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to read two titles on this list – Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and Mosquitoland by David Arnold – and if these novels are any indication of what else is to follow, we’re in for a very, very special year indeed.

Please Note: When I put this list together several weeks ago, twelve of the books I wanted to include did not yet have finalized covers. Unwilling to leave them out, I instead made little individual banners for each book, all of which can be found at the conclusion of this post.

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

1) Scarlett Undercover by Jennifer Latham

2) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

    • Thanks for commenting, Page! First of all, I just have to tell you how lovely your blog’s layout is. It’s so vibrant and colourful, and it caught my attention right away.

      I’m so glad that my post today was able to act as a resource for you, although I’m not sure if your to-be-read list will feel the same way. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know I always feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation when I discover a new book to read – You want to read them all, but it never seems as though there are enough hours in the day.

    MY TOP TEN TUESDAY!

    • Thanks, Christine, although I can’t take all the credit! ‘Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015’ was actually the topic on January 6th, but because my blog was still on hiatus at that point I wasn’t able to participate. It was too much fun to miss out on it entirely. I’m so thankful it was a ‘free week’ and we were able to choose our own topics today. ๐Ÿ™‚
