Monday's Muse~Kick A** 2011 Debuts
My new blogger friend, Christina Lee, is hosting a blogfest called Kick A** 2011 Debut Author Spotlight that I just had to be part of. Honestly there have been so many great debuts this year that I hate to have to narrow it down so I'm going to break the rules and list a few of my favorites for you.
Denise Grover Swank. Many of you have already heard me sing the praises for this novel. It was touching, daring, and made me laugh so hard I cried. She has a new book out (Chosen) that I can hardly wait to read!
Jessica Subject. Jessica has a wonderful way of blending sensuality with sci-fi that I have rarely read accomplished with such seamless grace.
Eisley Jacobs. This was a touching fantasy that made me wish I had kids to read to. If you have children that love dragons then you'll want to read this to them! Book two will be releasing soon, can't wait!
Trisha Wolfe. The author pulled me into a world that intrigued me, one I am looking forward to spending more time in with a future novel that she has in the works. You'll want to read this novella to get background on characters that I have no doubt you'll fall in love with just as much as I did.
Elana Johnson. I've read a lot of dystopian novels lately, so many that they start to blur together, but Possession is both a cut above and a unique concept that stands out from the others. A sequel to Possession is scheduled to release next year!
