Heat of the Moment

:)


message 12: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, Shannon!

Born to Run (not a debut author)

message 13: by M. (new)

M. Inherit Midnight, Breaking Dawn, End of Days, Half Wild, The Harder You Fall, Half Lies, P.S. I Still Love You, and Finding Audrey are not debuts. Just thought I'd let you know!


message 14: by Patrice (new)

Patrice Just thought I'd let you know that these three were 2014:
Flirty Dancing
The Unhappening of Genesis Lee
Love and Other Theories


message 15: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (LaurenHannah.net) P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han is not a debut! (Also a second in a series...)


message 16: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, guys!

Removed....

Flirty Dancing (2014)
The Remedy Files (2014)
Little Miss Evil (middle grade)
Guns and Dogs (not a debut author)
Inherit Midnight (not a debut author)
The Unhappening of Genesis Lee (2014)
The Harder You Fall (not a debut author)
P.S. I Still Love You (not a debut author)
The Love Story That Shouldn't Have Been (2014)

I left Breaking Dawn alone. It's a different Stephanie Meyer (Charlotte Hymes), but I don't understand what's going on with that book. I also left alone Finding Audrey. It's not Sophie Kinsella's first book, but I think it is her first YA book? And I believe a debut in the YA genre counts for this list. Let me know if not.


Jessica (The Psychotic Nerd) I removed The Giver, The Outsiders, Fellowship of the Rings, Halflings, To Kill a Mockingbird, Don't Tell, Little Women, The Kite Runner, Memoirs of a Geisha, and The Five People You Meet in Heaven.
Come on, guys!

Other books I removed:
Gangland: World's Most Infamous Part I (2014), Blood of Toma (2014 & not debut), and Altar of Reality (not debut).


message 18: by Rainbowheart (last edited Jan 12, 2015 04:10PM) (new)

Rainbowheart Maybe the list description should explain what a YA debut *is.* It seems a lot of people are confused enough to add books published years previously, adult books, and titles by authors who have written plenty of other YA books.

Also removed....

The Rising (2014)
Paradox Love (2014)
Bitter Sweet Love (NA)
The Carnelian Legacy (2013)
Several books by Blanca Beyar (not YA, not debut author, not 2015)


message 19: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Apparently, this is now a featured list, which means a whole bunch of people are adding unrelated books. I'm not even going to list them all here, but I'm removing titles that are non-2015, non-YA, and non-debut author.


message 20: by Joey (new)

Joey Healthy list. Thanks.

message 23: by Rainbowheart (last edited Feb 04, 2015 10:55AM) (new)

Rainbowheart Removed This Raging Light, which got pushed to 2016.

Still deleting all non-2015, non-YA, non-debut authors as they get added. This is a featured list, so a lot of people are voting for their own books regardless of whether they fit the list requirements.


message 24: by Clara (new)

Clara Mosquitoland is amazing!


message 25: by Jason (new)

Jason #1 is bad.
#2 is bad.
#3 is bad.
#6 is bad.
At least #9 is okay.


message 26: by Silea (new)

Silea Kate Elliot is _not_ a debut author. Good, yes, but not new.


message 27: by Zephyr (new)

Zephyr How did Breaking Dawn get in here? It's from...2007? 2008? Something like that.


message 28: by Barry (new)

Barry Eva I am looking to book authors especially debut authors, for my internet radio show "A Book and a Chat" that hits 900 shows before the end of June. Many authors on Goodreads have already been guests and can relate to the easy going chat that thousands enjoy.
If you are an author and interested contact me at knight2k4@hotmail.com
