November 28th: Who were the best debut authors you read this year?

Oh this is too hard! I have no idea who is a debut author or not. I do know that Katherine Arden is one so I guess her book goes up here. I really liked her take on fairytales. SO worth it


Ohhh, now I remember! Jennie Melamed. Damn! That book was awesome. SO freaking awesome and dark so effing dark. Just thinking of it gives me chills again.

  10. I loved The Bear and the Nightingle! And you're right about how difficult to tell sometimes if they are debut authors. The most confusing is when they are established authors writing under a new pen name, but the publisher still describes that as a "debut"
