It’s Top 5 Wednesday! Today’s topic features 2017 Debut Authors I am excited for. There are quite a few that have already blown me away with their books and I’ve labeled these writer’s as Author’s to Watch. Keep reading below to check out my top 5!
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti. I absolutely LOVE this book. I highly recommend reading it. It’s a wonderfully written YA contemporary. Chelsea Sedoti has such an amazing voice and her protagnist, Hawthorn, is so very relatable. I read this book last year and you can check out my review here.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber . This book has been all over my instagram, twitter and GoodReads feed. I wish I had been lucky enough to snag an ARC. It’s been recommended to those of us who enjoyed The Night Circus. I am so very excited to get my hands on this one! Available January 31 2017
Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts) by Vic James. This book is a little bit dystopian, a little bit urban magic, and a lot of dark and wicked fun. It’s filled with political intrigue and characters you will want to see succeed as well as characters you will want to see their just deserts. I grew tired of the dystopian genre when it they all started to sound the same and Vic James has definitely changed the game with this one! Full review to come soon. Available February 14 2017 in the US ( I believe it’s already released in the UK)
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I am always down for a great fantasy read with a sassy heroine and Tricia Levenseller more than delivers with this book! Alosa Kalligan is fierce, sassy and won’t let anyone get in her way. I could not resist this pirate adventure tale and read this in one sitting. simply could not. stop. reading. Full review to come! Available February 28 2017
Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts. I actually have this on my Kindle currently waiting to be read and reviewed. This is right up my alley. Epic fantasy featuring a group of friends who are pulled into an adventure that brings them together. Factor in magic and a King with Royal Mages for watchdogs and I am ALL IN. I cannnot wait to dive in! (Thank you NetGalley for the ARC!) Available June 7 2017
