I haven’t done one of these for a while…I’m sorry! Welcome back to one of my favourite tags on the internet – Six for Sunday (you can find the prompts here!). I’m actually keeping up with Blogtober too which I am very surprised about! What an excellent topic to get back into S4S with this week with:
Best debut books…
There are so many amazing debuts out there, but I will narrow it down to six which absolutely stand out for me!
1. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Still in the running for Best YA Book 2018, this amazing debut all about sirens and pirates is still getting lots of praise, and very deservedly! I LOVE IT!
2. Sunflowers in February by Phyllida Shrimpton
Another fantastic debut from 2018 which is up there is this title, focusing on life and death in a warm and moving way.
3. Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
Always guaranteed to get me out of a reading slump is this incredible series which started as a debut author and has just gone from strength to strength. A must read for all murder mystery fans!
4. The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
Another one that’s in the running for Best YA Book of 2018 is this hilarious yet important title about the culture of slut shaming, feminism and just the awkwardness of being a young adult that I think everyone can relate to.
5. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K.Rowling
It wouldn’t be a list of the best debuts without Harry Potter featuring. It’s a phenomenon. It’s Harry Potter. I need not say more!
6. The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson
I saved this until last because it’s the first book that came to mind when I saw this tag. Are you surprised to see this on here? You shouldn’t be. Without a doubt, this is one of the best debuts I’ve EVER read.
Have you read any of these? Would you have included any other titles?
