Yup, I'm not ready to let go of 2015 yet. So, just like my Rewind to 2014 series, this is going to be all about the previous year. Get ready for a whole week of Rewind to 2015. First up, all the amazing debut authors.
#1. The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
When someone can write a book that reminds me of 39 Clues, they're pretty awesome. The Conspiracy of Us is also perfect for fans of Ally Carter.
#2. The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
One of my Fifteen 2015 Reads that was as actually as good as I hoped. It doesn't hurt at all that Jenn is super nice, and I got to interview her back in March.
#3. Hello, I Love You by Katie M. Stout
I loved exploring South Korea's culture alongside Grace, and her character growth is great. She's still flawed at the end, but I could definitely see her growing and changing.
#4. Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed
What a moving book. If you haven't read this one yet, you need to get on that stat.
#5. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
I didn't really review Renee's debut, but my Goodreads review has a gif of Taylor Swift saying "R.I.P. me," so that basically sums up my feelings. The Wrath and the Dawn was also one of the few books I gave 5 stars this year.
#6. This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
While I didn't love This Monstrous Thing, I did like it, and I can't wait to see what Mackenzi writes next (especially because she's been hinting at some awesome historical fiction stuff). I adore her and her awesome notes that she sends with swag and her fantastic launch party dresses.
#7. The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
*strokes book* Pretty cover is pretty. But it's also so much more than that. I loved the prose in The Weight of Feathers, and I really can't wait to read whatever Anna-Marie writes next.
#8. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
ALL THE OREOS AND SWOONS AND WELL-WRITTEN MALE POVS.
Y'all don't know how much I don't enjoy books from guys' POVs. I've tried, I swear. I like Percy Jackson a lot, and I'll take dual narration with a guy and a girl, but I don't usually like books like Simon. But anyways, bloggers and authors alike were swooning over this one, and I gave it a try, and I regret nothing.
#9. Anything Could Happen by Will Walton
Will you look at that - another book with a male protagonist. 2015 is the year I branched out a bit, and I don't regret it one bit. Also, how could I resist a book with so much Taylor Swift love?
So...what about y'all? What debut authors of 2015 did you love?
