Top Ten Favourite Debut Books

Now because I don’t have a brain when I first wake up (which is when I am writing this) I went through some old TTT’s that I have not done and decided that this would be a good one to do. Lets get started shall we?

1. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. This book is amazing and it talks about the love of books. Everyone should read.

2. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. So magical it must go on all lists.

3. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton. As gathered from my review, this book left me a little speechless. I cannot wait for her next book.

4. Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. I adore this book and I just found out that she will be at an event in my area soon. Guess who is going to be at the front of the line to meet her?

5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I went it expecting not to like it at all but I love this series so much! (On a side note, I already know I am getting an ARC copy from Penguin! Dying with excitement)

6. The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien. I think this was the first book of his to be published (correct me if I am wrong) but this book really sparked the world of fantasy so it had to go on the list.

7. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge.

8. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I don’t know if he will write more books but it was good none the less.

9. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Though not the best book, for a debut, she sure made one hell of a splash.

10. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Now I am not all caught up in the series anymore since the movies happened and I know the writing isnt fabulous, but guys seriously, this book blew up the reading world so it gets a spot.

  1. This is an awesome topic! I love a debut novel, I think its the exciting feeling that comes with the unknown. You never know whether its going to be really amazing or really bad, but that’s why its so intriguing. A good cover always helps sway my vote though. I loved Cinder, Cruel Beauty and Twilight. I’m glad you included Twilight because it was one of the books that got me back into reading and it will always have a place in my heart. I know it had its faults but most books do! I bought Daughter of the Forest recently because of your review! I can’t wait to read it.

    Great List, Happy Reading

  2. I loved Twilight! I’m even thinking about rereading the series so I can see how I feel about it now. There’s so much hate and book snobbery about it. Like you said, maybe it doesn’t have the best writing, but it certainly got many people reading and the films definitely didn’t do the books justice. I think it’s one of those books that many people say they hate, before even actually reading it. The Thirteenth Tale and Cruel Beauty both sound fab!! I recently read Cinder, which I enjoyed, but I wanted a little more world building. I am really looking forward to continuing with the series and have a feeling it will just get better and better!

  3. I get so excited every time I see Juliet Marillier on someone’s list. Daughter of the Forest was beyond amazing, and I am jealous you will get to meet her soon :)

  4. I have such fond memories of The Hobbit from my childhood when my daddy would read it to me. He had the best Gandalf voice – Ian McKellan does a fantastic job imitating him in the movies ;) My TTT
