Top Ten Tuesday 11

This week's theme: Top Ten 2014 Debuts I'm Excited For

So...looking at my to-read list and most of the books on it are continuations of series I'm already reading. In fact, there's not a single 2014 debut on there! Thanks, people at The Broke and the Bookish for forcing me to go hunt for some lovely debut novels :)

  1.  15839984Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge - I'm a sucker for fairy-tale retellings, and this one sounds awesome - an assassin version of Belle who is supposed to kill the "beast"! 
  2. Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief, #1) Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne - It seems like this is the year of assassins, because this books also features a girl who's an assassin. Fantasy, danger, power struggles, and  secret pasts sound like a recipe for a good book :)
  3. Elizabeth is Missing Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey - I used to read a lot of mysteries as a kid, but I stopped reading them after a while because they got predictable. Last year I started reading more psychological mysteries, and I have been enjoying them! Looking forward to this one.
  4. Gilded Gilded by Christina Farley - This is a retelling of a folktale I'm not very familiar with, but it sounds really interesting - Jae Hwa moves from LA to Korea, expecting the worst of her troubles to be fitting in. But it turns out a Korean demi-god is out to steal her soul...
  5. Half Bad (Half Life, #1) Half Bad by Sally Green - Honestly, I saw the words "Patrick Ness" and "Markus Zusak" and added this book to my to-read list right away. Those are two of my favorite authors, so I am really excited for this. It helps that I'm on a fantasy book phase and that the reviews for this are stellar!

    Great list! Cruel Beauty looks so good, I can't wait for that one. There are so many great books coming out in 2014, I don't know how I'll find the time to read them all. I hope you manage to read all of these :) My TTT.

  4. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Ooo, Elizabeth is Missing wasn't even on my radar yet, so thanks for including that in your list! It sounds like fun, as do all the titles you chose. I can't wait to see what fantastic debuts this new year has to offer. :)
