The 20 Hottest Debuts of the Season

Posted by Cybil on August 06, 2018

Rejoice, readers! We’re in debut season—that time of year when publishing houses tend to print a delightfully large number of new writers. And this year, between July and September, is proving to be a goldmine of authors to discover.

If you’re in the mood for historical fiction, Heather Morris’ World War II love story The Tattooist of Auschwitz is already an international hit. Or perhaps your reading will take you to Colombia during the time of drug lord Pablo Escobar’s reign in Fruit of the Drunken Tree.

For readers looking for some fantasy, check out The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock, set in 18th-century London, or head deep into a magical forest with the adult fairy tale The Sisters of the Winter Wood. For a dash of magical realism, turn to She Would Be King, a fantastical take on Liberia’s formation.

There’s also some dystopia (Vox), an evil child (Baby Teeth), and a war hero-turned-bank robber-turned debut author’s gritty first novel (Cherry). In short, you’re bound to find a book for whatever reading mood you’re in.
