Top Ten Most Anticipated Debut Novels For 2015

I get so excited by the idea of debut novels.  I try to read as many as I can, and I have discovered some great authors along the way.  There were so many debuts that I am looking forward to, I decided to limit this to books where there was a cover, even if that cover may change.  See the honorable mentions after the list, for those books that look AWESOME, but just don't have cover art yet.  Here are the debut books I'm looking forward to in 2015.
June 2nd 2015 by Putnam Juvenile

This looks sufficiently creepy and yet awesome. I am also intrigued by the comparisons to If I Stay and the Maze Runner.
Expected publication: June 9th 2015 by St. Martin's Griffin

Usually when books are compared to my favorites, I have a bit of hesitancy, but this one hits so many of my buttons.  I love books about Music, Boarding Schools and foreign countries.  This one has it all.

I can't wait to read this one.  I love a good contemporary, and this one looks like it will fit the bill.  I love the idea of finding redemption for a past mistake.

The description compares it to some pretty specatcular authors, if it delivers even partially on what it promises, then I will love it.
Expected publication: February 3rd 2015 by Feiwel & Friends

How absolutely creepy yet awesome is that cover?  Not just that but the description makes me want to pick up a copy now.
Expected publication: May 12th 2015 by Putnam Juvenile

There are a lot of debuts that I am excited about, but when I read the description of this one I wanted it in my hands RIGHT now.  This was a hell yes, and very well might be my most anticipated.
I have burned by so many books that use Sarah Dessen as a comparison, and yet it almost always works to get me to read the book.  I like the idea behind this one, and it looks like it may be similar to Last Year's Mistake, which I am also looking forward to.  I clearly have a type.

I featured this as a WoW a few months ago, and my anticipation for this book has not lessened at all.  If anything I am even more excited to read it.
Expected publication: March 17th 2015 by Dial

Based on the description I am super excited to read this book.  It does seem very reminiscent of This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith, and I loved that book so I have high hopes for this one.

I love the idea of this history reimagined story.  This may end up being awful or awesome.  I can't wait to find out which one it is.

Honorable Mentions:

These don't have a cover yet, and sometimes the description is sparse, but what is there looks awesome:

  5. I can't wait for Last Year's Mistake, it sounds so great. Also The Wrong Side of Right sounds awesome too! :)

  6. I've seen Shutter on a few lists. I've had to add it to my own want-to-read list (along with way too many other books that look awesome). Darn Top Ten Tuesday...

  7. Shutter was one I hadn't come across, and I'm not a fan of creepy stories, but I bet I know some people who would totally get into that. Thanks!
