WELCOME to Debut-a-Thon hosted by the fantastic Amber over at Books of Amber. Since these are my last 4 days before school starts again, I’m going to grab this opportunity to binge read debuts while I can! I love reading debuts, maybe even more than its sequels or later books published by the author, because debuts are allowed to be creative, to be crazy and to be a distinct story from the rest with nothing holding it back. You can look at my Debut Author Challenge 2013 page for debuts I plan to read this year!
Debuts I plan to read:
Unread • 0% Reading • 52%
PHEW. 2 books in 4 days seems reasonable! I’ll be updating this post with my progress at the end of the day, you can also
stalk visit me on Twitter (@nexttopstory) for live updates, and tell me about debut you’re reading!
HAPPY READING, EVERYONE!
So tell me… Have you read any of these debuts? Recommended? Not recommended? Which should I read first? And what titles do you have your list?
DAY 1 CHALLENGE
DAY 2 CHALLENGE
LOVE THIS ONE!! Hosted by Laura over at Music Plus Book, this challenge is about… well, music plus books! Pair your currently-reading debut with a song which it reminds you of!
I’m currently 29% through INK by Amanda and the setting is exactly how I imagine spring in Japan– standing under the arc of beautifully majestic sakura trees as baby pink cherry blossom petals flutter to the ground. EEE!! I’ve chosen Vola from a Korean drama, The Princess’ Man, because I’m obsessed with this Josean retelling of Romeo & Juliet, and their OSTs are gorgeous. It’s beautiful, it’s heartwrenching and there’s so much tension in this short 1 minute. Even though I don’t understand a word they’re saying, it seems perfect for the mysterious INK!
DAY 3 CHALLENGE
It’s all in the title! An acrostic poem about my current read — INK. I’m not good with poems so :P Thank you Laura, for hosting this challenge!
