Hey guys! There are sooooooooo many new releases I'm excited for in 2016. Today, I'll be focusing on the debut novels I am excited about! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

This book seems very, very entertaining and intriguing. It's about two sisters who escape their ruthless father and find themselves in a mysterious game. It has already gotten some good feedback from the community.

Cold Summer by Gwen Cole

First, that cover is gorgeous. Second, it's about a time-traveler who travels to WWII and when he returns to present day, he finds himself dealing with PTSD. WOAH!

You're Welcome, Universe
by Whitney Gardner

This is a contemporary about a deaf girl who has to go to a normal, public school after she gets expelled from her previous "school for the deaf" for covering for her best friend (who snitched on her.)

This is an intriguing fantasy about aristocrats with magical gifts. Abi has to decide between her love and her liberty, while her brother is enslaved and wants a revolution.

The Hate U Give by
Angie Thomas

This is a story about a girl torn between two worlds: her poor neighbourhood and her posh high school. When she witnesses her best friend being shot by the police, what she says could either destroy her community or get her killed. It is inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement so... should be interesting.
