top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015

These authors debut in 2015, and we are looking forward to their books!

Ricki

1. Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk

Lady Pancake Cover

I am very much looking forward to this picture book, which comes out in the fall of 2015!

2. Mosquitoland by David Arnold

I keep hearing about this book from everyone! A tease: “I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.” I can’t wait to read this one.

3. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

my heart and other black holes

Mental illness and suicide are very important topics for me. I think it is very relevant for many teens, and I am grateful for all of the authors who publish excellent books on this topic. Books save lives.

4. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen

Many of my friends have listed this book on their TBR lists. The summary is enticing, and I suspect it will be very popular.

5. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

More Happy Than Not

Because the cover entices me. Oops. Was I not supposed to judge a book based on its cover?

Kellee

1. Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk

Because Josh is hilarious, a wonderful supporter, and those sketches (above from Josh’s blog) are AWESOME!

2. The Honest Truth by Dan Gemeinhart

honest truth

Because people I really truth have this book 4 and 5 stars.

3. I Don’t Want to be a Frog by Dev Petty

frog-300x298

Because Colby Sharp recommended it.

4. Simon vs. the Homo Sapians Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Because Andrew Smith blurbed it.

5. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

every thing

Because the concept (being allergic to the outside world) terrifies me, and I want to see what the protagonist does to overcome this.

    Thanks for sharing, Ricki & Kellee! This is Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast’s first official blog mention ever! Woo hoo! Made my week!

  2. Mosquitoland and Red Queen are on my list today, but I like the idea of Every Thing, Every Thing! Seems like quite a few heavy titles coming out in YA this year, but I do enjoy issues contemps. (:
