oliviasbooks When We Wake by Karen Healey, Altered  by Jennifer Rush, Indelible Ink, The Invisibility Curse and Mind Games (Mind Games, #1) by Kiersten White are not debut novels.


message 23: by oliviasbooks (last edited Jun 29, 2012 04:09AM) (new)

oliviasbooks ... Oh. And page 2 is full of well-known authors (de la Cruz, Clare, Garcia, McMann, Harrington, Aguirre, Rossi, Kirby ...). Paperworm, those 2013 titles of published authors belong on a different list!


message 22: by Krista (last edited Jul 08, 2012 04:39PM) (new)

Krista Ashe So are Suzanne Young, Veronica Roth, Saundra Mitchell, Mary Lindsey, Shannon Messenger, and Victoria Schwab. A lot of these have really cool new books and series coming out, but they're not true debuts.


message 21: by Dayla (new)

Dayla Same with Kiersten White's Mind Games


message 20: by Gabby (new)

Gabby Hmmm, Cassandra Clare isn't, either. I picked up on it, too.


message 19: by Rogier (new)

Rogier teeth is not a debut


message 18: by Petra (new)

Petra If you find a book that isn't a YA book or doesn't debut in 2013, please leave a comment in this discussion with a link to this list, so a GR Librarian can remove it.


message 17: by Raven (new)

Raven Black tempt the stars by karen chance is not a debut. it is the sixth book.

Kimberly Alienated by Melissa Landers is being pushed back to 2014, fyi.

Laura Deleted for not being 2013 debut authors:

PODs by Michelle K. Pickett
Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway
The Collector by Victoria Scott
My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton
Linked by Imogen Howson
Reaper by L.S. Murphy
Starglass by Phoebe North
After You by Jessica Corra

Should we delete books if they have published stories in short story books?

I only got up to #28 because I have to leave, but I'm going to come back later and look through all of them.

Thank you. I know you meant well, but apart from After You by Jessica Corra and maybe My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton (it's in the gray area since her previous releases were indie and her next might not be), everything else was a YA Debut for 2013 since their previous releases were short stories or not YA.


message 12: by Laura (new)

Laura I thought this was for authors's first books, not just YA...


message 11: by Laura (new)

Laura Can I delete Indelible by Dawn Metcalf? She already published a book and it's YA.

I deleted the Clockwork Scarab because Colleen Gleason had other novels published and wasn't a debut... but I just saw your comment, I apologize.


message 8: by Laura (new)

Laura Should we delete books by authors who have co-written books, like Kami Garcia?


message 7: by Petra (new)

Petra Laura wrote: "Should we delete books by authors who have co-written books, like Kami Garcia?"

That's one of those gray areas again, depending on how you look at it. What do you think?


message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura Debut is technically the first public appearance of something, so I would say delete them. But it's your list, so whatever you want. :)

I think you're right.


message 4: by oliviasbooks (new)

oliviasbooks Choose recommentations on the upper margin of the site, scroll down to Community Recommendations. Then you can decide whether to recommend a certain book to the readers in your friends list or whether you want to answer friends' and random users' requests for specific recommendations.


message 3: by Talyn (new)

Talyn While most of these books have uninteresting synposes, I still love looking at the cover arts :D


message 2: by Erika (new)

Erika Fassbender I read half of the books and the best one was Taken! That book had action all the time and it really is a great book. Please read Fadeaway! That is another good book. I don't think it is on the list but I read it and it was a great book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was trying to figure that out to so I just said it in words.
