Today’s prompt is to choose your top 2 YA debuts of the year, and to be honest I don’t pay too much attention to debut novels in any genre (I kind of wait to see what people are reading and reviewing). Nevertheless, these two books caught my attention.
A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess
The description for this book sounds really cool, an interesting twist on the trope of the chosen one. I haven’t read this yet, but I’m afraid it may be too heavy on the romance (I hope not). It’s on my TBR, but not a priority right now.
Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland
I have no idea what fish has to do with the story, but I love, love this cover (I need it!). From time to time I crave to read a fun, cute romantic story and this may be one of those. I usually prefer to read from a female POV, but I’m open to try something a bit different. I think one of the protagonists have a disability/illness, so I hope this book is respectful and offers good representation. I have high hopes for this one!!!
I think I’ll start paying more attention to debut novels next year and maybe read one or two. If you’ve read any of these or have any recommendation feel free to talk to me in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
