  4. This is such a wonderful idea! I have to admit that before seeing your list I didn't hear of any of these novels, or authors but some of these sound exactly like my kind of books. I'll definitely try to drop by on the Twitter chat tomorrow. :)

  5. GAH, I wish I could join this SO BADLY. My daughter's birthday party is tomorrow, sadly (for me, she's pretty excited hahha). I will try to promote the hell out of it though! These books just sound AMAZING!

  7. So excited for this Rachel! I been starting to look up some debut authors and there are so many, and it is a little intimidating to tweet at them sometimes. Can't wait for the chat tonight! Also, thanks for the mention above! <3

  10. I want to read Flashfall and Ivory and Bone so badly. They sound fantastic!

    I think this event is a great idea to learn more about upcoming books. You should do more events like this in the future.

  11. I'm quite bummed because I don't think I'll arrive from work in time for the chat, because I'd love to take part!
    I'm really excited about The Bride of Dusk & Glass because mythology retelling and Indian mythology?? YES PLEASE!!

  12. I believe that the debuts i am looking forward the most are "Into the Dim". " Assassin's Heart" ,"Blackhearts" and Burning Glass",mostly because they seem really promising ^~^

  13. This sounds really fun! I want to know more about 2016 debut. Sadly, 3 PM EST is like 2 AM in here, so I'm not sure I could wake up at that time :/ Hopefully I can! I'm excited for Blackhearts and A Study in Charlotte. They both sounds interesting and has a pretty cover.

  14. I have a ton of books that I'm looking forward to in 2016, but concerning debuts, I think that "Blackhearts" and "The Girl from Everywhere" are the two that I'm the most excited for.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Ahhh this is so exciting! You've pointed me to several new books to add to my 2016 shelf. :)
    I'm most looking forward to The Love that Split the World.

  16. Into the Dim by Janet B Taylor because of the synopsis and time travel

  17. The Bride of Dusk and Glass sounds super cool! I'm so looking forwards to it!

  18. I only get to choose one? Well then I'm gonna say Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers because Assassins! It sound like an amazing book and I'm currently slightly obsessed with assassins! Damn Sarah J Maas ;)

  19. Good on you for supporting debut authors Rachel! Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I'm a big fantasy lover so Assassin's Heart and A Shadow Bright and Burning are up my alley.

  20. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'm most looking forward to Assassin's Heart because the story sounds intriguing. And who doesn't love a story about assassins?

  21. I really can't choose one, but at the moment i'm really into contemporary so every single new contemporary book I would like to read it!

  22. Thanks so much for the twitter chat and giveaway! I'm looking forward to A LOT of 2016 debuts, but since I read the first few chapters of The Girl from Everywhere last summer (at DPI) I'm looking forward to reading it the most!:)

  23. I can't choose between The Bride of Dusk and Glass and Assassin's Heart!

  24. I can't wait for Symptoms of Being Human because it sounds so unique and unlike anything that I've ever read before.

  25. Omg I am so excited for A study in Charlotte, the girl from everywhere, Blackhearts, Into The Dim, Assasins Heart, The Love That Split The World, Sword and Verse, Rebel Sands, I could keep going but I'll spare you let me just check all!
    ❤️Brittany T

  26. So excited for Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahier!! The cover is drool-worthy and I NEVER turn my back at the word Assassin on the cover! :D


I read, value, and cherish each and every comment. Although I don't have time to respond to most of them, I make every effort to comment back on your blog! :)
