Finding debut author to read isn’t something I did in 2022 because none of my time or very little was spent reading. That said, I have authors that wrote debut novels I hope to read. Since I cannot really talk about the books I read that falls into that category, I’m taking the debut authors I want to read approach.
On this list is some varied options. They include young adult fiction and contemporary romance, which we know is my favorite. Let’s read on and discover what debut authors which I’m going to try and limit to years 2021, 2022 and of course 2023, makes me most excited.

DEAREST JOSEPHINE and THE SUMMER WE FORGOT, CAROLINE GEORGE
Technically Dearest Josephine isn’t George’s debut. But I’m making it work because it was her first with Thomas Nelson which is a bigger publishing house (under the Harper name). This one earned some pretty good reviews. I did buy it when it released, but haven’t read it. I have this hope that it’d give me the same kind of “feels” (though obviously a different story) as Jo & Laurie did earlier this year. It follows a character who finds a novel from someone in the 1800s in which she seems to play heroine, and their intertwining stories. Amazon | Goodreads
THE MAID, NITA PROSE
Follows a twenty-something woman who is socially awkward. Nonetheless she works hard in her job as a hotel maid, and maybe even falls into a mystery. This is one of those books likened to Clue, plus I saw someone gush over this on Instagram, so I had to snag a copy. It also seems like perhaps we’ll be able to relate, to varying degrees to the heroine. Amazon | Goodreads
THE MEET-CUTE PROJECT, RHIANNON RICHARDSON
Pretty sure I’ve included this one on lists before. But it’s STILL on my shelf, and dang, it sounds fun. Follows a girl whose best friends create their own rom-com scenario by trying to set her up with the perfect dude. Amazon | Goodreads
MARCH & FEATHER, EMMA SASKA (FEBRUARY)
Adding this title is a risk. It’s a debut novel and from a publishing house I have never heard of. However, the plot sounds interesting not only because of its cute pen pal trope but also because its protagonist goes to a homeschool academy. #Curious indeed. Amazon | Goodreads
