Top Ten Tuesday:
 2016 Debuts Novels We Are Looking Forward To
brought to you by: the broke and the bookish
Jeni's Picks:
1. Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman: Story of the girl that broke the infamous pirate Blackbeard. I've never really liked pirate books but this year I read a middle grade book Hook's Revenge by Heidi Shculz and Becoming Lady Lockwood by Jennifer Mooore, and I enjoyed them both so maybe I just need to read more of this genre. 
2.The Last Cherry Blossom by Kathleen Burkinsahw: A WWII story of a girl that lives through the Hiroshima bombing. This is a middle grade book from a twelve year old girls point of view. 
3. Tell me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum: YA contemporary. Looks promising. 
4. Artifacts by Pete Catalano: Another MG book about a group of friends going against a group of fairies in a race to get a pen used by Jacob Grimm that can rewrite fairytales.
5. The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi:  A Hades/Persphone tail set in Inida. 
I love mythology so I'll probably read this one. 
6. Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh: Historical fiction two star crossed teens. 
7. Arrows by Melissa Gorzelanczyk: A story of Cupid. Yeah!!!
8. MidWinter by Scalett Kol: YA paranormal. 
9. Of Blood and Shadow by Kerri Maniscalo: A book during the Ripper murders.
10.  In Another lIfe by Julie Christine Johnson: Kind of sounds like a Susanna Kearsley book. A  Past/Present story set in France. 


  1. I see some of the same books from my list and some I think I will have to add to my TBR list. Thanks!!!

  2. I really like the sound of Artifacts! :)

    Check out my Music Monday and TTT.

  3. Blackhearts sounds so intriguing! My TTT

  4. Nice list! BLACKHEARTS and IN ANOTHER LIFE are on my list as well. I hadn't heard of THE LAST CHERRY BLOSSOM before, but it sounds really good. I love good MG historicals. Thanks for the heads-up!

  5. Great picks! The Star Touched Queen sounds awesome. I love that myth, so I'm definitely going to have to check that one out when it comes out.
