Where Are They Now?

debutathon (1)

For the final day of the Debutathon, I wanted to showcase some debut authors from last year. A lot of them have continued writing and many have more than two books already released! Seriously, the 2013 crowd are writing machines. Hopefully by this time next year, I’ll be able to talk about some newly released books from some of my favourite debut authors of this year!

Which Debuts Do YOU Want To Read? + Giveaway

debutathon (1)

We’re on the second day of the readathon and hopefully everyone is speeding ahead at maximum acceleration! There has been a lot of talk about the books that we all want to read, so I’m here today to share which books everyone is dying to get their hands on.

jude debutJudith @ Paper Riot: I really want to read both A Mad, Wicked Folly and Prisoner of Night and Fog – two historical fiction stories that sound phenomenal.

Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination: I seriously can’t wait to read Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman, because even though I’m not big on history, I love the premise and it sounds like such a unique and compelling story + potential new otp material?

Debutathon: Kick Off and TBR

debutathon (1)

This party is a-go! The Debutathon starts right now for those of us in the UK. For everyone else, it has either already started (looking at you, Australia, Asia, and the rest of Europe!) or will start in a few hours (Hawaii will have to wait a while though). I wasn’t able to stay up until midnight to see this thing off, but I will be up at 6AM to start reading before work at 8.30AM. Here’s my current plan:

What are you planning on reading? There are so many books to choose from, I don’t know how I managed to only pick out four. I would have chosen a few more but I think even four books is a stretch.

If you want to know more about the Debutathon then you can read my post here. Basically, it’s a week-long readathon focussed on debut authors of 2014. There will be plenty of posts involved, and hopefully lots of reading! You can also watch my videos below on the topic if you’d rather do that than read. You know, just in case you want to save your reading energy for the actual books.

Debutathon 2014: Announcement and Sign Ups

debutathon (1)

Welcome, welcome! This is the official announcement for the second (hopefully) annual Debutathon!

The History

The Debutathon began last year when I was flailing over some awesome debut novels and authors, and I wanted to share the love. The first Debutathon took place in the summer, about halfway through the year, because it’s when I thought everyone would have the most time. I was considering hosting a second event closer to Christmas and the New Year, but those plans fell through because I was just so busy. After much consideration and many requests, I’m now hosting the second event! A year late, but
