Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Books Most Anticipated Debut Novels for 2015

I already wrote a post on my most anticipated non-debuts of 2015, and that post was a lot easier for me to write.  To be honest, I rarely read a book based on its two-paragraph premise alone.  I read reviews, check its Goodreads rating, and talk to people with similar book tastes before choosing a new book by a new author to read.  That being said, these are books that intrigue me, and that I will probably read IF they get good reviews.  (If you have read them and you think I would like them, do let me know!!)  

All links go to each book's Goodreads page.

Release Date: April 28, 2015
I have already read several positive reviews on this one, so this fantasy is pretty high on my TBR list.

Release Date: February 10, 2015 
My goodness, this book has a LOT of hype surrounding it.  I only hope it lives up to it!

Release Date: April 21, 2015
I don't think I've ever read a book from a genie's perspective.  I'm intrigued.

Release Date: March 31, 2015
An asteroid is hurtling towards earth with the potential to completely decimate the human species.  What would you do?

Release Date: February 10, 2015
This one is very iffy, but I'm interested enough to read the reviews and could be persuaded to read it.

Release Date: June 2, 2015
That cover is very voodoo looking.  For me, that's not a good thing.  But the premise makes me think of Graceling, which is never a bad thing.

Release Date: May 19, 2015
Told from the point of view of a girl with schizophrenia, this novel sounds fascinating.

Release date: May 12, 2015
Gender selection has left the population of India with a ratio of 5 men to 1 woman.  Enter what I hope will be a thought provoking story on gender politics.  (Plus, THAT GORGEOUS COVER.)

Release Date: June 9th, 2015
It's a fairy tale retelling with comparisons to Shannon Hale and Jessica Day George.  It's like this book was written specifically for me.

Release Date: March 24, 2015
Arranged marriage is something that has always interested me, so this one immediately caught my eye.

What debuts are you anticipating this year?


  1. I'm seeing The Red Queen on everyone's lists for this year. I've had it on my tbr for awhile and can't even remember where I first saw it.

    1. Yeah, I feel like the word has been out on Red Queen forever. I'm excited to finally read it!

  2. I was really excited for Red Queen (at some point), but the mixed reviews have me a bit hesitant now. I hadn't heard of Becoming Jinn -- until today, and I'm completely fascinated by it! I gotta keep my eye on it! I've also seen The Witch Hunter on many lists today, so that's one I should consider too. Hopefully the hype doesn't kill it though. 5 to 1 sounds powerful! I'm definitely adding this one to my list. :) Thanks for giving me more debuts to look into, Mel!

    1. Oh yay!! So glad you're drawn to so many of these. I love fiction set in a Middle Eastern setting, so I immediately was drawn to 5 to 1. It has a ton of potential, and I hope it delivers! Looking forward to the rest of these too, but especially Red Queen, despite the mixed reviews. The premise just really draws me in.

  3. My Heart and other Black Holes is such an awesome title, I can't wait to try it. I am also looking forward to Red Queen. I have received a review copy of Made You Up so I can't wait to start reading that one as well! Great picks :D

    1. Ooh, so jealous of your ARC of Made You Up! I was first drawn to that book because HELLO GORGEOUS COVER, but reading the premise has me even more intrigued. Looking forward to Red Queen too!
