message 15: by Breanne (new)

Breanne Tiger saga all the way :)


message 14: by Pam (new)

Pam Vickers This is a difficult list to vote on considering it says YA debut and so many are not the author's first book...


message 13: by Julian (new)

Julian Abbott Interesting line up of books. All seemed readable.


message 12: by Jeremy (last edited Aug 14, 2011 10:24AM) (new)

Jeremy Rodden Agreed, Pam... I see all 4 of the Tiger's Curse books up there... kind of annoying that people don't know how to operate a list. And two versions of number 3.


message 11: by Twinklesmile (new)

Twinklesmile Awaken Me gets my vote! :)


message 10: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Jones The Septavalent Stone gets my vote


message 9: by Anna (new)

Anna B can't vote: many many of these are NOT debut authors (Maggie Steifvater, Cassandra Clare...). i think the list needs some cleaning.


message 8: by Suki (new)

Suki Michelle Debut authors, debut novel, fantastic reviews. Please vote for The Apocalypse Gene.


message 6: by Daph (new)

Daph (Loving Books) Deleted a whole bunch of books from the list either not debuts but obviously a sequel in a series (like The Iron Knight, Outside In), not debuts (pub before 2011 OR authors with a second book in the list).

I'm sure I've missed some, though.


message 5: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl The Last Unicorn and the Dragonlance book should not be on this list...


message 4: by Daph (new)

Daph (Loving Books) Removed the following books:
The Time Traveler's Wife
The Lovely Bones
The Butterfly Clues (pub 2012)
Darkness (second in series)
The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove (pub 2009)
Sunrise to Sunset (second in series)
The Talismans of Shannara
Dragons of Autumn Twilight
Lord Brocktree
Caged by Damnation
Delirium
Obsidian
Guardians of the Cross
Golden Horizons

message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Good list for picking some extra books.


message 1: by Karena (new)

Karena Erin Morgenstern has stated several times that The Night Circus is not a YA book.
