Top Ten 2013 Debuts I’m Looking Forward To

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Check out the upcoming topics to start posting!

Okey dokey, this week is another tricky one for me, since I don’t actually know of that many debuts yet. However, it also means that I get to learn, yey!

MILA 2.0 Splintered Pivot Point Ink Poison Pantomime

  1. Mila 2.0 – All you really have to say is YA sci-fi and I’m there. Artificial intelligence is just an added bonus ;-).
  2. Splintered – This one has been all kinds of popular, and while I’m not a big Alice fan, I can’t ignore a popular fairy-tale retelling!
  3. Pivot Point – I saw a great review of this one and entered the Goodreads giveaway *crosses fingers* :D.
  4. Ink – Super power: drawings coming to life. Awesome and beautiful, how can you go wrong?
  5. Poison – I’m not sure about the swooning part of the description, but the poison master part sounds awesome!
  6. Pantomime – Mysteries and lost civilization and strong female characters and… circuses? Sounds good :D.

So that’s all the ones that I could find, mostly because I had a hard time finding non-YA debuts… I guess people don’t follow those nearly as religiously ;-). Anyone have any suggestions based on my fantasy and sci-fi tastes??

  1. I saw the cover of Splintered in the book store yesterday and it is gorgeous!

    • Indeed, so much color! I have to keep resist buying it just to look at it while I read all the other books I have, haha!

  2. I also had trouble finding non-YA fantasy & science fiction debuts. Obviously I’m more stubborn than you (in other words I googled like crazy for hours). Here is my result: Top 10 Adult Speculative Fiction Debuts I’m Looking Forward To In 2013. Hope you find something you like. :)

  3. Great picks. I’d never heard of Pantomime before, but I’ve seen it on several lists today. I’ll have to check it out. :D
    My TTT.

  4. Pivot point is one i cant wait to read. Great picks. My TTT

  5. Great list! I have a couple of these on my list too. My TTT

  6. Splintered is on my list too, and Mila 2.0 and Poison also look very good! :) My TTT list:

  7. Looks like we share two titles on our lists, Splintered and Ink. :) Pantomime looks like an intriguing mystery and I’ve seen Poison on a few lists, so that makes me rather curious, too. Thank you for sharing your list!

  8. Great picks! I have a few more fantasy/sci-fi picks on my list (including CITY OF A THOUSAND DOLLS, which sounds really good).

    I have Mila 2.0 and Pivot Point for review, but have not yet read them. I have seen a ton of incredible reviews for Splintered. Great list!

    Those are some beautiful covers! Thanks for sharing these. I will add them to my wishlist.

  11. I didn’t wind up putting Poison on my list, but yes, the Potions Master part sounds awesome! It’s definitely on my TBR

    • The description makes me wonder how much of the book is based on the potions and how much is the romance, but potions is not a skill most heroine’s have, so it just sounds so cool!

  12. All of these books look absolutely gorgeous. I’m especially looking forward to reading Splintered and Pivot Point – both just seem so incredibly intriguing. Great list!

  13. Splintered sounds pretty good and I actually obtained a copy for free. I’ll have to pick it up soon!

  14. I grabbed it from the Newsweek offices where my aunt works while I was in NYC over winter break. :) She gave us a tour and said they get sent about 400 books a week (which is AMAZING) and a lot of them are just available for employees to take. Splintered was the only YA I saw, so I grabbed it!

  15. Thanks so much for stopping by & following my blog! You’ve got an amazing list! I’m basically adding the whole thing to my wishlist. And I have to add that I love your blog design! I’ll definitely be stopping by again! =)

  16. I’m not usually big on sci-fi, but I’m stoked for Mila 2.0! The premise is absolutely intriguing! :) New follower! (P.S. Awesome blog design!)

    (Sorry for the belated return visit!)

    • Yey, a sci-fi convert :D Thanks for following back! No worries about being a little late, I totally understand those weeks!
