Hi, and welcome to the very first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017! Wishing you all a super happy new year filled with lots of bookish love, but also just all the good things in life

Today’s top 10 is all about looking forward to something new, namely all the amazing sounding debuts that will be released in 2017. Is it just me, or does 2017 sound like it will be absolutely bookishly amazing? SO. MANY. DELICIOUS. SOUNDING. BOOKS!

I am so looking forward to these books, so chances are you probably already heard me rave about them somewhere. But that’s okay, right? Let’s spread the love!

The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich


I think this is my NUMBER ONE most anticpated 2017 debut! I mean, this is about a spy school that trains these teens to become tropes. Their assignment is to get close to a girl and whoever doesn’t get the girl, dies. And then they end up falling for eachother instead? THIS SHIP, I AM ALREADY ON IT!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I’ve already read so many good ARC reviews of this one, my expectations are sky-high! It’s a tale of family, mystery, fantasy and a bit of romance – so of course I want to read this! It sounds absolutely amazing.

The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue by Mackenzi Lee


It’s a historical fantasy in which two boys roadtrip through Europe together and have to fight pirates AND their feelings for eachother along the way. Historical fantasy. Roadtrips. Pirates. FEELINGS. I’m looking forward to this one so much, it’s crazy!

Blood Rose Rebellion by Evelyn Eves


A historical fantasy with lots of magic and a setting in Victorian Hungary? Color me intrigued.

Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza


Vengeance in space, guys! Vengeance in space! Also, I saw Adam Silvera describe it as Arya Stark in space. I love Adam Silvera. I love Arya Stark. I love vengeance plots. Space is just an added bonus, really. Also, how gorgeous is that cover? (I only just saw there’s a girl in the moon though… #blindasamole)

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones


It’s a fairytale retelling with Labyrinth elements. There is a Goblin King (who I already casted as Tom Hiddleston. No idea why). It’s been described as dark and sexy. Color me intrigued.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas


This book was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and sounds like such a heartwrenching but real and necessary read. A must.

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller


Honestly, the synopsis had me at pirates. Ok no, the title already had me at Pirate. This sounds like so much fun and I can’t wait!

Frostblood by Elly Blake


A world where people with ice powers (called frostbloods) are in power and hunting down anyone with fire powers (firebloods)? Say no more, I’m in!

Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields


The idea of a teenage assassin who can kill with a kiss sounds kind of hit or miss, but I am intrigued! Also, it’s based on Indian folklore and already has some pretty good reviews so I’m in!

Gilded Cage by Vic James


This fantasy dystopian set in England just sounds so dark and interesting, it immediately earned its’ spot on my TBR list!

Are any of these debuts on your TBR list as well? What other 2017 debuts are you highly anticipating?

    Brittany @ Brittany’s Book Rambles

  17. We had some of these on our list as well! Can’t believe I forgot The Hate U Give though! Our TTT

    1. It seems like the saying ‘So many books, so little time’ will be especially true in 2017 because I’m already looking forward to so many too 🙂

  18. I have literally got every single one of these added.? WE OBVIOUSLY HAVE AMAZING TASTE SO HI FIVE FOR OUR FABULOUSNESS. Hhehe. I spectacularly can’t wait for The Gentlemen’s Guide and The Love Interest. <3 And I just got approved on netgalley for Guilded Cage and I'm TOTALLY freaking out with excitement. It's going to be such a good reading year!!

    1. Haha, yay for fabulous hi fives! 😉 OMG, I’m so excited for both The Gentleman’s Guide and The Love Interest! And that’s so cool that you got approved for Gilded Cage, I hope you’ll enjoy it!

  19. I can’t believe I forgot to put Wintersong on my TTT list. It was so impossible to pick only 10 that I’m excited for. Our lists really are quite similar so hopefully we’ll both love all of these books 🙂

    1. I know, there are so many great sounding books coming out in 2017, it’s crazy! But also great 😉 Hope they’ll all live up to our expectations!

  20. I think 2017 is going to be amazing book wise! The Love Interest does look good, Blood Rose rebellion (because Hungary) and Empress all look fabulous. And Poison’s Kiss- that cover gets me. Frost Blood doesn’t look half bad either. Great list!!

    1. Yes, it definitely looks like 2017 will be an amazing reading year, based on all these amazing sounding books! Hope they’ll all live up to our expectations 🙂

  21. So many of these sound SO GOOD! I’m so excited for Wintersong to come out! I’m also really excited about The Gentlemen’s Guide! Great list 😀

    1. Yes, I think 2017 will be an amzing reading year 🙂 Wintersong and The Gentleman’s Guide both sounds sooo good!

  22. The Gentleman’s Guide does sound so good– and unique. I totally would have had it on my list this week, but I blanked on what it was called for some odd reason. I hope your 2017 reading year rocks!!

    1. It does sound amazing 🙂 Thanks, I hope your 2017 reading year will also be filled with so many amazing books!

  23. I think most of these books are on my tbr too. I’m especially looking forward to Caraval – like you, I’ve read a lot of positive reviews. Other books I’m excited for are: The Upside to Unrequited, Flame in the Mist, and Our Dark Duet. 🙂

    1. Oh yes, I’m also highly anticipating The Upside to Unrequited and Flame in the Mist <3 I still have to read This Savage Song (which I hope to do this year), but I'm sure I'll love it and look forward to Our Dark Duet as well :)

  24. I’d seen The Love Interest on a few lists, but I didn’t know what it was about and so skipped it. Then I read your description of it and I AM SOLD. Already on the ship, like you. I need to find out when this will be published right now because I need it in my life.

    1. Ah YES, it sounds so amazing doesn’t it? Funny and original and a dreamy ship! I think it’s only published in June so unfortunately that’s still quite the wait… But I hope it’ll live up to both our expectations 🙂

  25. ‘Pirate King’ is one I forgot about when I made my list last week (or maybe I didn’t think it was a debut novel…!?), but it looks interesting. “Caraval” however did make my list! Sounds like such a complex, and really good book. 🙂

    1. They both sound so amazing! Hope they’ll live up to both our expectations 🙂
