I decided to do Debut Authors since there are so many good ones this year! All of the links go to their twitter accounts so if you don’t follow them go do it! They are definitely not in order. If I could I would have made them all #1!

1. A.G. Howard. Amazing storyteller and an awesome friend.

2. Cat Winters. I want to live in her head! Yeah that doesn’t sound creepy or anything lol

3. Alex Lidell. She’s your go to gal for an amazing High Fantasy!

4. Sherry Thomas. She’s technically a debut since she writes romance but, The Burning Sky is her YA debut so I’m counting her!

5. Meghan Shepherd. She writes an amazing creepy tale and she sends me the best tea!

6. Jennifer Rush. Not only is her debut Altered awesome! She’s a bud and a proud member of #TeamMerlin!

7. Amy Tintera. I normally don’t like zombie books but Amy wrote one that I adore!

8. Joelle Charbonneau. I love Joelle! She wrote one of my favorite series and books 2& 3 aren’t even out yet (yes I’ve read them lol)

9. Page Morgan. Page is a sweetheart on top of being an amazing writer and she has the coolest Pinterest boards!


10. Bridget Zinn. RIP Bridget I wish we could have read more of your amazing stories!

  1. Love your list! Splintered, The Burning Sky and Altered are my top debuts of the year too :D Still need to read a few others on your list, they're high on my TBR.
    Merry Christmas, Jaime :)

  2. I was going to do debuts because I wanted to put Altered and Splintered, as well but then I realized I read those last year so *sigh* - I struggled to find 10 in allllll my books I read this year so I opted to go for Best Couples! Now THAT was hard (I put a few honorable mentions because picking ten is too hard lol). The Madman's Daughter was the first book I read in 2013 and still stands as one of the best books I've read (after having read 125+) - fantastic list!

    Also, Reboot was a surprise hit with me this year. I absolutely LOVED that book and I can't wait for Rebel!!!

    Merry Christmas!!!

  4. Great list! I'm seeing it now, and realised that I was really a failure when it comes to debuts this year, I've read only Poison & Splintered from these, but the rest are all on my tbr. Thanks for sharing, Jaime, and Merry Christmas!

  9. Yay for debuts! I've yet to read Reboot but I plan to in Jan! And A.G. really is awesome, and her book is fantastic! I read Poison and then I looked up more about it because I was hoping for more...I'm so glad that I was able to read Bridgit Zinn's book, it's fantastic, and I'm glad she was able to share that story with the world. Great list!!
