With the year drawing to a close, I looked back at the books I’ve read this year. First- I should note that I set a small goal of 45 books and I lack 2 making that goal. I’m going to make it after all! Next year I’m thinking of bumping it up to 50. I try to keep it reasonable, but yet still something that I have to stretch to reach, but that’s not the point of my post.
My point is…DEBUT AUTHORS!
When looking at the list of what I read (and LOVED!) this year, I noticed that I read several books from debut authors. These books also ended up being in my favorites of the year. So without further delay…here’s my top books that were from debut authors:
Until this weekend I was saying that this was my favorite book of the year, and it IS a close call, but I’m obsessed with this Wrath and the Dawn. I can’t believe this is Renee’s first book and can’t wait for Rose and the Dagger to release in May.
The cover to this is simple. SO SIMPLE. In fact, I almost overlooked it when it was offered up from the publisher. I’m so glad that I gave it a chance because it was such a good story!
Contemporary with Jane Austen elements—need I say more? ❤
THIS. BOOK. If anything beats Wrath and the Dawn as my favorite book of 2015 then this MIGHT be it. CRAZY GOOD. I had a hard time putting it down! An actual review is coming Wednesday, but I just can’t believe this is Nicola’s first book. I can’t wait to see what she does next!
Obviously 2015 was a great year for strong debut authors. I’m so excited to see what each of these ladies put out next and anticipate it being even better than these amazing books!
