Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and consists of them picking a topic each week for us bloggers to list our Top Ten.

I don't think I'm going to be able to reach 10 because at the moment my list of 2015 releases is actually very small :P
Here's my list:

1. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (April 2015)

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.
LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.
ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.
When Laia and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.

It had me at the word Rome!!! Damn it, I want this book now!!And I saw a twitter picture of all the published books last year and they looked so damn good, give me this book!!!.....

2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (February 2015)

The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.
Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?

I think nearly everyone has this book on their wishlist and hopefully it will live up to the expectations!!

3. The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury (February 2015)

Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.
She’s the executioner.
As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.
But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.
However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh awesome sounding book. I need it!! I need it now!!! NOW!!!

Ohhhh look!!! I only have 3 books on this list......


  1. I've got An Ember in the Ashes and The Sin Eater's Daughter on my list, too. They both look like good reads!

  2. Basically those 3 books, I do wanna read. I didn't include The Sin Eater's Daughter in my list because I went for only five but yep, I do wanna read that as well.

  3. An Ember in the Ashes sounds amazing! *adding it to my TBR list*
    The Sin Eater's Daughter sounds kind of like ToG concerning the characters—I mean, there's a prince, a guard, and an executioner. I kind of want to read it too, now......
