Debut Extravaganza

So you already know I'm a book junkie, but did I you know I have an extra special place in my heart for debuts? This year is so exciting for me because so many of the authors whose journeys I've been following are debuting. Some of them (like Michelle Hodkin) I remember from contest entries, and now they're real live books! So here's a few of the YA author debut books I can't wait to read this year!

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis (debuted 1/11/11)
ANGELFIRE by Courtney Allison Moulton (debuts 2/15/11)
THE LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa and Laura Roecker (debuts 3/1/11)
BLOOD MAGIC by Tessa Gratton (debuts 5/24/11)
DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth (debuts 5/3/11)
HOURGLASS by Myra McEntire debuts (5/24/11)
POSSESSION by Elana Johnson (debuts 6/7/11)
IMAGINARY GIRLS by Nova Ren Suma (debuts 6/14/11)
BAD TASTE IN BOYS by Carrie Harris (debuts 7/12/11)
WILDEFIRE by Karsten Knight (debuts 7/26/11)
THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab (debuts 8/2/11)
THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin (debuts 9/27/11)

What debuts are you looking forward to?


  1. Ditto--I've already pre-ordered some of those despite my plans to read my huge TBR stack first!

  2. Thanks for including WILDEFIRE on your list! I'm very excited for all 10 other 2011 releases around it as well :)

  3. I've only heard of like half of those, and I actually have two of them already, but now I'm looking forward to all of these!

  4. I'm so excited for all of these! Several of them are wonderful authors I've been following and cheering on for a long time too! It's going to be a great year.

  5. Wow - those all look amazing! The breadth of budding talent out there is a little overwhelming. I'm so excited for all these debut authors! In particular, I'm anxiously awaiting Possession. I follow Elana's blog and credit her, in part, with my start in blogging and finding this awesome community of writers!

  6. I'm looking forward to all of those on your list. :D

  7. All these look good, and have great covers. I'm especially entranced by the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and I love Elana's Possession cover--simple but striking.

  8. I've pre-ordered Blood Magic and, sad face, I can't order any more books for a few months. I have to read everything I have first and then honeymoon with my credit card.

  9. Aww, thanks for including MARA, Valerie :D It's so crazy think about that first contest!! But it's really awesome that you remember :D

  10. Gah, I'm going broke this year. That's just a fact. But at least I'll be in reader's heaven!
