Recommend A... meme

…Book by a Debut Author 

Recommend A… is a SUPER meme hosted by Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit that lets us get a little random, and a little off the radar. I LOVE IT.

Debut love! I love reading debuts. There’s something so enjoyable about reading a book from a completely new voice. It makes me giddy and so stoked! Here are a few of my favorite debuts! (I’m keeping this list to the last two years or so. Just to keep things from getting out of hand.)

Book cover for Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris

Unraveling: Unraveling #1 by Elizabeth Norris. This book was pretty stellar. It surprised me by going in a totally different direction than I thought it would. It was a nonstop pace, exciting and fresh. Also it made me cry. Books that make me cry automatically make me love them a little bit extra.

book cover for Born wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Born Wicked: The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1 by Jessica Spotswood. Ah, witches! I love witches. What I loved about BORN WICKED was the way it was different from every other witch book I’ve ever read. The time period–turn of the 20th century Maine–was new; the alternate history following the Salem Witch Trials was new; the mythology of the witches and the warlocks and the Sisterhood/Brotherhood was new. And the ending was wrenching.

Book cover for The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder. WAH FEELINGS! I know that some people found the main character, Cam, hard to like, but I appreciated her prickliness. It had a reason that I found heartbreaking and real. Cam coping with her cancer and her own mortality was devastating and gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see what Wendy Wunder has in store next.

    I bought The Probability of Miracles and I FEAR IT. You know me and contemps. However…I am doing much better about picking them up and I think I can, I think I can. Also, the cover is one of my favorite – so pretty.

    I’ve read each of these, save for Unraveling. But I have it! And the fact that you describe it as Stellar makes me think of Incubus, which makes me sing that song that takes me back to the early 00s. And THAT makes me happy.

    In short: I WILL READ THIS.

Tell me what's up!
