Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For


Top Ten Tuesday is a fantastic meme hosted and created by The Broke and the Bookish.

2014 has been a great reading year for me.  So excited to see the titles coming out and, although this is a Debut Top Ten List – I’m also counting debuts by authors who have also had previous books out but their new books are making their debut.  I like to spread the love around.

1. The Secret of Magic by Deborah Johnson

I’m already reading this book and loving it immensely.  It is reminding me of To Kill a Mockingbird and The Help, all rolled into one.  The setting is post-WW2 Mississippi and Alabama.  Loving it! Release date: January 2014.
