This week’s Top 10 Tuesday list was great because I had to go and find 10 debut books I wanted to read. Usually I’m so busy doing my chicken without a head impersonation that I don’t take the time to find out what’s happening in the bookish world.
While there are a lot of books coming out this year, most of them are urban fantasy and I’m a little overloaded on that genre. It also doesn’t help that I’m hideously picky about my reading matter, so my Top 10 is really a Top 9.
- Poison by Bridget Zinn
This book has been on my TBR shelf for awhile and I was sad to learn that the author died late last year.
- Forged by Fate by Amilia Dillin
Reading the blurb gave me tingles, but that could just have been the smell of fresh coffee…
- Blood’s Pride by Evie Manieri
I love the cover on this one (the grey-ish version with the scary-looking woman on it), and the fact that the mercenary everyone is scared of is a woman (the one on the cover).
- Promise of Blood by Brian McCellan
Gods, warfare and bloodshed. Yep, I was definitely a viking in another life.
- The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard
I like the idea of this book, but stories involving the fae are one of those areas where I’m kinda picky, so it’ll be interesting to see what it’s like.
- Running on Empty by L.B. Simmons
From the blurb, it sounds similar to a Jennifer Crusie (one of my favourite authors) novel, so I’m really looking forward to it.
- Flirting with Magick by Leigh Bennett
This one just sounds like a bit of fun.
- Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
This is not the sort of book I usually read, but since I’m challenging myself this year, and it sounds good, I’m looking forward to it.
- Fade to Black by Francis Knight
Two things about this book caught my attention; 1) the cover rocks and 2) the tag line promises one of my favorite things, an antihero.
