TTT: Debut Books


July 10: TTT Throwback (pick a topic we’ve done in the past that you missed out on, or loved so much you’d like to do again!)
Top Ten Favorite Debuts (Tuesday, February 1, 2011)

There’s something about debut books isn’t there? I mean sure, they get a lot more marketing hype that most established authors, but there’s also just something really exciting about opening up the first pages on a completely unknown quality. Is this going to be my new favourite author? Am I going to hate everything about the author’s writing style? It’s also fun to go back and read a favourite author’s earliest work, to see how their style has grown and developed.

    1. I enjoyed Children of Blood and Bone, and I can see why so many people loved it, but I didn’t feel that strongly either way. I think I gave it a 3.5? How’re you finding it?
