Top 5 Tuesday: Debut Novels

Happy Tuesday!

This week’s topic is about our favourite debut novels. I’d like to think that I read a good proportion of debut authors but when I was trying to come up with this list, I realised that I’m not as good as I initially thought. A new goal of mine is to read more debut authors haha!

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm and each week there’s a different bookish topic to discuss. If you’re interested in participating, or checking out Shanah’s blog, click here!

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson

Will I ever stop talking about this book? This was a fantastic debut and it makes me extremely excited to see what other books Jackson will publish in the future.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

As well as being a debut novel, this one takes the crown for the amount of hype that surrounded it. Buttttt the hype was right because this book was amazing.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber


This was such a magical debut and one that I’m so glad I read. The series has become one of my favourites and I’m so close to finishing Finale! It’s crazy to think that this is the book where it all started.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

This book kickstarted my new found love for mystery/thriller books. Combined with the Victorian setting, this makes for the perfect read.

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

This is another book that I probably talk about way too much but it’s so hard not to! It’s so relevant, inspiring, important, funny…. I could go on for hours haha.

What are your favourite debuts?
