2014 debuts! That's an exciting topic. Let's see if I can collect 10 authors...
1. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige (4/1/14)
I suppose technically "Dorothy" isn't Danielle's debut since a prequel ebook novella was released in late 2013, but since this is the official book, I count it as her debut.
2. Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones (6/15/14)
Superheros and super powers seem to be the main themes I see popping up in YA these days. I think it might be the next big theme. Illusive sounds pretty awesome.
3. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman (4/22/14)
Another WWII book! Only this one is about the "niece" of Adolf Hitler. This could be very interesting for sure.
4. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge (1/28/14)
I've talked about this one before, but I think it could be really good. It's a different spin on a fairytale retelling.
5. When Audrey Met Alice by Rebecca Behrens (2/4/14)
I'm a history geek (thanks to my parents), so anything that puts a spin on something historical is always going to be fun. I love it when contemporary meets historical. Rebecca's idea is awesome.
6. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy (3/18/14)
There have been a lot of cancer books lately. This one seems like an awesome twist on the usual formula, and I hope it's going to be great.
7. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira (4/1/14)
The premise is genius. I've read the first 5 chapters, and April can't come soon enough. And guess who has an ARC of this one? I hope to devour and love it soon!
8. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord (4/15/14)
I love the whole best friend angle (I was talking about that a few weeks ago in a discussion post), so I'm glad Emery Lord is making that the main focus.
9. Cinderella's Dress by Shonna Slayton (6/3/14)
Another book set during WWII. :) This one doesn't sound as serious as Rose Under Fire and The Book Thief, and it's a fun twist on the Cinderella story.
10. My Faire Lady by Laura Wettersten (6/3/14)
This is a super unique premise, and I think it's going to be a fun read.
Honorable Mention: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang (9/9/14)
I'm still as excited as ever for Amy's debut, and I'm going to continue to mention it throughout the year. Y'all have been warned.
