Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Debuts I'm Excited About

I've decided to jump on board with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is: Top Ten 2014 Debuts I'm Excited About.

So here they are in no particular order:

1. Black Chalk by Christopher J. Yates - I first came across this one on a BN list of suggested titles for folks who loved Donna Tartt's Secret History. I immediately added it (and the others I didn't already have) to my wishlist.

2. The Troop by Nick Cutter - debut horror? I'm in! I've heard awesome things about this debut. 

3. The Girl With All the Gifts by M. R. Carey - ok, as soon as I saw this trailer I knew I had to have this book. Plus this is Mike Carey writing as M.R. Carey (his Felix Castor series is pretty creepy).

4. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige - it just looks completely awesome!

5. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings - yeah, a "blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller" tell me that's not intriguing!

6. Half Bad by Sally Green - witches! I think everyone wants to read this one.

7. Archetype by M.D. Waters - I read something on this just recently and my addled brain can't recall what it was (if it was an interview with the author) or where it was. Urgh. The book sounds awesome and I can't wait to read it either way.

8. The Quick by Lauren Owen - I just came across mention of this one the other day and had to look it up - a mystery with a secret society set in Victorian London and sounds like gothic undertones. Yep, must have!

9. String Diaries by Stephen Lloyd Jones - this one's been on my radar for a while but it isn't due out here in the States until this summer. Like the rest of this list it sounds utterly magnificent!

10. Conquest by John Connolly and Jennifer Ridyard - ok, this is only half a debut but it's John Connolly pairing up with his partner on a sci fi series. I'm pretty stoked!

11. The Girl From the Well by Rin Chupeco -  I had to include this one even though it put me over 10! I've heard really fantastic things about this teen horror debut due out from Sourcebooks in August.
