Ten Best 2021 Debuts I Read | #TopTenTuesday 318

Friday we are already going to say goodbye to 2021 and I’m not sure I can really believe it. There has been a meme going around about how time can go fast even when you aren’t having fun and for a lot of moment this year that was certainly true. Only the lockdown at the start of the year seemed to last forever.

But lets get to the topic at hand. For Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) today we are going to be looking back at 2021 Debuts. I don’t read as many year debuts as others do. I wish I could but then I would have to completely drop al my backlist books and that is just never going to happen.

So here are a few I read and liked.

Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell | The Conductors by Nicole Glover | Amari and the Nightbrothers by B.B. Alston | The Unbroken by C.L. Clark | Rea and the Blood of the Nectar by Payal Doshi
Nora and the Sacred Stones by Laura Hatch Rupper | A Dragonbird in the Fern by Laura Rueckert | Bad Witch Burning by Jessica Lewis | Dark and Shallow Lies by Ginny Myers Sain | Payback’s a Witch by Lana Harper

      1. Oh, that’s good to know. I do always appreciate it when books I’m anticipating are quick reads. (Nothing against slow-paced books, but I have a different kind of anticipation for them, if that makes sense.)


    1. Nora and the Sacred Stones could be fun. It is tagged as middle grade but I thought it was more for the younger end of young adult.

      Rea and the Blood of Nectar is middle grade but would still be a great read.

  1. I picked up Amari and the Night Brothers yesterday. I’m hoping to read it before the sequel comes out next year. πŸ™‚ I also have Bad Witch Burning and Payback’s a Witch to read so I’m happy to see them here!

  2. Happy New Year! Good riddance to ’21 lol. Your books all have amazing covers- nice collage. πŸ™‚

    Winter Orbit seems like I’ve heard good things on that one..

  3. I think it’s absolutely no surprise that we share some favorites here. SO MUCH YES to Amari. I absolutely cannot wait for the next book. Most of these are still on my TBR, and I feel a little disappointed that I didn’t get to them in 2021, seeing how much you loved them. I’m definitely going to have to check them out in 2022, though!

      1. I’m really excited to see how many people love Amari! Especially since, here in the US at least, in the publishing world, there has historically been so many narratives around not only can you not have Black main characters because they won’t sell, but you also can’t have Black characters on the cover, because they *definitely* won’t sell. Look at Alston proving that’s most definitely not the case. πŸ˜‰
