Top Ten Tuesday: 2013 Debuts I Want to Read

TTT is a weekly meme crated and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where they post a question or topic weekly. This week's topic is: Top Ten 2013 Debuts.

Funny coincidence. Just last night, I perused the Goodreads list because it occurred to me that I was a bit slapdash about my Debut Challenge in 2012. There were a number of 2012 debuts left unread, mostly because I didn't have a system. They all got buried in TOM.

Also, I'm trekking to Seattle in less than two weeks for Midwinter and am making a list of arcs I will be seeking.

One thing that occurred to me as I perused the 169 books on the list, was the numbers of "Book #1" in parenthesis after the title. Sigh. I believe I'm suffering from series fatigue. But, I will try and keep an open mind. I'm not sure that I will make ten books but, here goes:

45 Pounds (More or Less) by K. A. Barson. 256 p. Viking Children, July 11, 2013. 9780670784820. 

OCD Love Story by Cory Ann Haydu. 352 p. Simon Pulse, July 23, 2013. 9781442457324.

Dear Life, You Suck by Scott Blagdon. 320 p. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, March 26, 2013. 9780547904313.

Rump: the true story of Rumpelstiltskin by Liesl Shurtliff. 272 p. Random House Children's Books, April 9, 2013. 9780307977946.

That's it. There isn't anymore. Four that jumped out at me. Perhaps I'm not only suffering from series fatigue, maybe I'm in a reading slump because most of those 169 titles just didn't appeal.
