Top 10 2017 YA Debuts I'm the Most Excited For feat. Angie Thomas, Rebecca Barrow & more | Top 10 Tuesday





This was the hardest blog post I ever made. There are about 40 books in my 2017-releases shelf on Goodreads in this very moment and I could think of at least 10 more. It was awful to have to choose. A-W-F-U-L




THE GALLERY OF UNFINISHED GIRLS - Lauren Karcz
This blurb very much sounds like magical realism, painting, and queerness and I am very much ready for that. Goodreads

ONE OF US IS LYING by Karen McManus
Honestly I cannot get enough of books with unreliable narrators. Bathe me in them. Goodreads

ALLEGEDLY by Tiffany D. Jackson 
I've been lusting after this for months now. The premise of the protagonist having murdered a child is the most interesting thing and I just want to read it! That combined with fantastic reviews from author friends who have been able to get an early copy.... *hisses* I want it. Goodreads




THE LOVE INTEREST by Cale Dietrich
Okay but this book you guys. Two guys compete for one girl and end up falling in love with each other. I ache for this. I need this in my life. Goodreads

THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas
With an almost instant movie deal this book is probably going to be one of the most important releases of 2017. It's inspired by Black Lives Matter and tackles police brutality. Goodreads

WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE by Lana Popovic
This is about girls who can manipulate beauty through magic and the second this blurb went live, my body was ready for this. Omg. Goodreads

GIRL OUT OF WATER by Laura Silverman
A one-armed swoony love interest. From that blurb I can already tell that I'm going to fall for this guy. Goodreads

YOU DON'T KNOW ME BUT I KNOW YOU by Rebecca Barrow
I love reading about accidental pregnancies. This one also features adoption and I'm just like ????? give this book to me now?? Goodreads

THE ELEMENTALIST by V.V. Mont
Oh how I long for more books about elemental magic! Let's bring those back I love this so much, so excited to read it. Goodreads

LIKE WATER - Rebecca Podos
This bisexual performing mermaid had me lurking the second I read the blurb. I can't wait!!! Goodreads
