Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and born & raised by Jamie. Today we're talking 2013 authors and the debuts that are sure to rock our worlds. (All links go to GoodReads.)
1. Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans. You guys have no idea how stoked I am for this book. Lenore has been one of my favorites since 2010 when I started blogging and I so looked forward to her Cat Tuesdays (seriously, her Birmans are TO DIE FOR CUTE.) And lo and behold, she's got a book coming out. So proud of this girl!
2. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke. Gothic horror and crooked smiles. Yes and yes. I think I've read the book summary, like, five times in the last minute and this sounds unbelievably JEN. Plus, I'm in lust with the cover.
3. Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross. I don't know what it is with me and dark, dreary covers, but I am drawn to them. The cover says "a novel of beauty & betrayal," and I do love me a good betrayal.
4. Infinite Sky by C.J. Flood. Aside from this cover being drop dead gorgeous, there are GYPSY BOYFRIENDS, you guys. Be still, my heart.
5. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner. I loved Meagan's book Skylark, which was beautifully written and perfectly paced. And with this title? OUTERSPACE. My newfound YA love.
6. The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett. Again, a book over which I'm drooling. A girl who invades the dreams of a cute guy. Oh, the potential scandal!
7. Transparent by Natalie Whipple. An invisible girl who is a weapon for her father's crime sprees? Color me intrigued!
8. Triangles by Kimberly Ann Miller. Love triangle, the Bermuda Triangle, and a cruise ship. This one just screams guilty pleasure.
9. The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd. It's a given that I will read anything with the word "gothic" in the synopsis, but this summary sounds all kind of insane. PLUS, a mad scientist for a father will probably produce some pretty quality storytelling.
10. All That Glows by Ryan Graudin. HA. This summary mentions things like "partying prince falls for a Kate Middleton-esque fae," and then "palace murder," and "paparazzi mayhem." GOOD LORD, it's like the Supernatural National Inquirer.
