Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the bloggers of The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are supposed to list the 2013 we're most eagerly anticipating. Since I'm participating in the Debut Author Challenge this year, I am eager to read everyone's list this week! I have a potential list of books that I'm interested in reading, but I'm always up for learning about new possibilities. :)
Dualed by Elsie Chapman — The premise that everyone is born with a Genetic alternate and must kill said Alt before turning twenty sounds creepy but fascinating!
City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Foster — An Asian-inspired fantasy where orphan girls are apprenticed behind this one city's walls? Heck, yes!
Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield — About a woman whose song has the power to bring down destruction. Nothing like a historical fantasy based on siren lore.
The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson — I love, love, love the fact that this book involves Brazil, mythology, and religious rituals.
Pantomime by Laura Lam — Two girls from very different backgrounds escape to be part of a magical circus. Something about truly magical circuses is awesome.
Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson — A "Bluebeard" retelling! Need I say more?
Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed — I'm always in the mood to read historical fiction about relationships that form between people of different social classes.
The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd — A retelling of The Island of Dr. Moreau but from his daughter's perspective. I need to read the classic first before this retelling.
Reboot by Amy Tintera — People die and are reborn as soulless perfect soldiers, based on how long before they're revived? Count me in!
Poison by Bridget Zinn — A botched poisoning attempt leaves a young potions master on the run from her kingdom. Sounds like a fun new high fantasy!
What debuts have I missed? Let me know what your most anticipated 2013 debuts are!
Edit: Apparently The Summer Prince is not a debut. My bad!
