Random Thoughts: 25 Upcoming Debuts to Die For

It appears that I have, or will have within the next week or so, acquired all but one of my original twelve Debut Author Challenge books. You have no idea how excited I am, though it makes that one missing book that much more coveted.

I still have a few of those left to read, so they remain on my “To Die For” list. Just because I have them doesn’t mean that I’m not dying to read them NOW!

But these are twenty-five debut books that I would kill for, die for and even sell my soul for. Granted, if I actually were to do any of those things I’d probably never get the chance to read them, but you get my point!

Two “To Die For” books that are on the very top of my killer reads list, but are not on this list because I’ve already read them, are:

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton – Random House Books for Young Readers (May 24, 2011)

Wildefire by Karsten Knight – Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing (July 26, 2011)

I still have a number of already released debut books to read and I’m sure that as the year progresses I will discover many more, but right now here are…
