19 Best Debut Novels of 2019 (Recommendation Nation)

I honestly can’t even think about the fact that 2019 is almost over. What happened?! I’m not ready for 2020. At all.

2019 was a mixed year, full of both bad things and good things, but one thing that significantly brightened it was all of the amazing debut novels that were released. Reading debut novels is one of my favorite ways to discover new authors, and 2019 brought in a lot of amazing new authors. So, naturally, I wanted to highlight some of my favorites.

Now, this will be split into 2 sections. The first will include all of my favorite debut novels I’ve read that were released this year, and the second section will include 2019 debuts that I really wish I got to read, but unfortunately haven’t had the chance (yet).

Also, if you’re looking for a list of my top non-debut 2019 releases, stay tuned!! I should have that out to you guys soon. To make sure you don’t miss it, click the button (or enter your email) in the sidebar to follow my blog!

15 September 2019 Book Releases!

Fall is here and I’m only a little bitter about it. Okay who am I kidding, I’m very bitter. While fall may be my favorite season, I feel like summer went by way too fast!

That said, I’m not bitter about the books coming out this month! A couple of these books I’m about to talk about have become all-time favorites of mine, and I can’t wait for everyone else to read them!

Now, there are a lot of September releases. Seriously. A lot. So much that I have to split up this list into sections. First, we have my top 7 YA standalones and series starters, but I’ve also included a list of 6 sequels as well as 2 non-YA releases I’m excited for.
