My Favourite Debut Novels

I got the idea for this post from one of the Top 5 Wednesday topics and I realize I a little late but I really wanted to do a post about this because I think it's a great idea. There are so many debut authors out there with a lot of talent! So I wanted to share with you some of my favourites that have won my heart and made me fall in love with the author's writing. All of these books have made me a devoted fan of all the authors, and I will definitely be picking up their future books! These books aren't in any particular order. Let me know if you also like some of these books!

1. Splintered by A.G. Howard.
I pretty much talk about this book non-stop. My friends and family are so fed up by this point, they just ignore me now when I go on a rant about this world. From the minute I saw this book I knew I had to buy it and read it immediately. The cover drew me to it first because it was so creepy and unique. Then the premise interested me quite a bit because I love fairy-tale retellings. So I picked it up and the rest is history! I'll definitely read anything A.G. Howard writes!

2. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch.
I heard so many good things about this book on the internet before I picked it up. I was a little reluctant to pick it up when I first got it because it was a fantasy and I hadn't read too many of those. But I recently went on a fantasy kick and dove head first into this baby! I absolutely fell in love with the world, the character, and the writing! I can't wait to see where Sara takes us to in the next book in the series, as well as all her books to come!

3. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige.
I don't remember how I found out about this book, I think it might've been while watching an EpicReads video. As soon as I heard what this was about I immediately looked it up on Goodreads, I became so intrigued by the story I ran to the store and bought it as soon as I could. I read this book in 2 days because I couldn't put it down! I've done a whole post on this book so I won't go into too much detail. I just loved the way it was written and I can't wait to read more from Danielle!

4. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.
I discovered this book by watching Lainey from Gingerreadslainey on YouTube. She was reading these books and becoming obsessed so I decided to give them a shot. The first book was all about virtual reality, which was a topic I was studying in school at the time, so I became very interested. Then I began to really connect with the characters and I couldn't wait to find out what happened to them. I cried at the end of Into the Still Blue because I didn't want to say goodbye to some of my favourite characters! I'm without a doubt going to read every book Veronica writes! Her writing is so enticing and addictive! She has a new book coming out this year called Riders that I'll definitely be picking up!

5. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.
This is one of those books where it's hard to believe this is a debut novel because the writing is so beautiful and strong. This book had me ensnared from the very first page. The writing style was so unique and lyrical. Tahereh also has a book coming out soon called Furthermore and I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Thanks for reading!
