If you’ve stumbled on this because you’re looking for the prettiest (and/or richest) debutantes of 2013 then you’ve got the wrong blog. Which doesn’t mean you can’t stay (please do!) but although I love all things girly and fashionable I’m writing about the best debut authors of 2013. So, even though there is bling in this list, it is the literary sparkle of outstanding writing —from new voices, some of whom are so young I could be their motheraunt slightly older sister. I may be living proof that age doesn’t automatically bring wisdom but this group makes it clear that wisdom (and oh-so-much talent!) can be found at many ages.
Here then, in no particular order, are my favorite debuts from 2013. Clicking on the title will take you to the review- enjoy!
