Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we feature top ten books or book related stuff according to each week’s topic.
In this week’s list, I’m going to include both debut authors & debut series of 2014.
Top Ten 2014 Releases I’m Dying to Read:
1. The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Sometime in September
Firstly, it’s Marie Lu. Secondly, the protagonist (Adelina) and I (Adelena) have the same name with a different spelling – a rare feat considering that my name isn’t exactly common. It’s hard not to get hyped up over it!
2. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
High fantasy and an absolutely gorgeous cover? I’m in!
3. Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke
Another cover I’m head over heels for but the plot also sounds captivating. Alternate worlds and multiverse!
4. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
So the protagonist, Alice, doesn’t seem like a very nice person (alright, she sounds downright mean) but there’s something about the synopsis that draws me in…
5. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
A twisted retelling (or continuation?) of a classic? I’m all for it.
6. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
Hitler’s NIECE and a JEW?! Talk about the ultimate star-crossed lovers. GIVE IT TO ME NOW.
7. The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel
I would read this for the title alone.
8. Salvage by Alexandra Duncan
A girl escaping from a messed up dystopic space ship back to Earth which seems to be a ginormous rubbish dump. How irresistible does that sound?
9. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
“An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.”
*waves hands wildly in the air* ME. THAT’S ME.
10. Hexed by Michelle Krys
Alright, this sort of reminds me a lot of Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (which I loved) with the witchy thing and the similar title so why not give it a try?
Which debuts are you looking forward to this year? Do share by dropping a comment below!

Hex and Dorothy Must Die are also on my 2014 Excited-for-list! They look pretty good! I hope they live upto their hype
I hope so too! It would be so disappointing if they don’t. :(
Side Effects May Vary is on my TBR list! It sounds like it’s going to be a good read! Dorothy Must Die looks good too. :-)
Yep, to make the protagonist of a classic the villain of the story must be pretty daring!
So many good ones! I also had some of yours on my list as well. So many books to be excited about!
Hopefully, they’ll be as good as everyone expects!
We have a lot of overlap! I don’t know how I forgot The Winner’s Curse when that is like my #1 pick. I already pre-ordered it and everything! Great list!
Nicole @ The Quiet Concert
You just reminded me that I should pre-order it soon too!
Salvage, Side Effects May Vary, and the Winner’s Curse were all close runner up’s to my TTT list! Is it just me or are covers designs just blowing it UP this year?! Everything gives me a serious case of book grabby hands. I don’t even need to read the synopsis sometimes, I can just tell from the cover.
You just spoke my mind! My eyes might also get diabetes from eye candying them gorgeous covers.
enjoy your new reads! I couldn’t think of any. kelley—the road goes ever ever on
