2016 Debut Author Reading Challenge

Because I had such a good time coming up with a list for today's Top Ten Tuesday prompt, I'm going to go ahead and sign up for the 2016 Debut Author Challenge hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com.  Who cares if I'm totally failing all of my 2015 challenges?  We're talking about a new year here, right?  Right.  So here are the 12 books I'm planning to read:

1.  Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
2.  This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
3.  The Mystery of Hollow Places by Rebecca Podos
4.  Paper Wishes by Lois Sepahban
5.  Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor
6.  Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace
7.  The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock
8.  The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden
9.  Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake
10.  Please Don't Tell by Laura Tims
11.  Where Futures End by Parker Peevyhouse
12.  The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

I'm excited to read all these fabulous-looking debuts.  Anyone else doing the challenge?  


  1. The Girl From Everywhere is really making a lot of lists this week (including mine). It looks like there are a lot of debuts with a huge amount of potential in 2016!

  2. Wonderful list! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. The Girl from Everywhere is really wonderful--actually, that's true of all the 2016 debuts I've read so far. If you have extra time, you might consider Katie Purdie's Burning Glass and Erin Summerill's Ever the Hunted (doesn't come out till December)--they'll probably both be on Whitney Award ballots next year. :)

  4. Here's to a new year! I think you have the right attitude - clean slate. :-)
