I've always enjoyed reading debut novels, if only for the reason that it's not easy to get published and promoted unless you really have something special in your writing. It can be unpredictable, reading something from a new author, but if you discover your next favourite up-and-coming literary star, think about the rewards! You can look forward to whatever they come out with in years to come with the confidence of knowing it will be a worthwhile read.
Without giving away any of the plot details, here is a list of debut novels that have been gaining accolades. Just click on a book cover to read a summary or place a hold.
