Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week we’re chatting about the authors we’re excited to see debut this year. This is always a hard post because there are SO many great books yet to be discovered. They’re on their way to the bookstore shelves this year. And yet…I have no clue they’re coming. I mean, I read lists on Goodreads (sometimes) and I try to read the basic synopsis, but it’s so hard to tell what’s going to be good, what’s going to be amazing and what I’m going to wish I’d never opened. So, here are a few that sound quite promising to me:
1. Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans, January 2013- OK, I’m cheating. I’ve actually read this. But her, I’m still excited about this. It’s written by the blogger behind Presenting Lenore. Who better to know what we as readers want than a book blogger, right?
2. The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shephard, January 2013- I’ve heard great things about this one from other bloggers. And honestly, if I’d just read the synopsis I might have skipped on it. Do you see my point? I have no idea what is going to be good and what isn’t! Now I must read this.
6. Dualed by Elsie Chapman, February 2013- It’s futuristic and everyone has a genetic twin (raised by another family) who they have to try to eliminate before their 20th birthday. Hello, awesome premise.
9. The Reece Malcolm Lists by Amy Spalding, February 2013- The MC’s mom is a famous author she barely knows until she’s shipped off to live with her after her dad dies. It sounds cute (other than the dad dying, obviously).
Happy Tuesday to all!
