2011 Mundie Moms Favorites: '11 Debs/New Series

It's day 2 of our 2011 MM Favorites, and today we're listing our favorite debs/new series. This year has been an awesome year for debs! There were so many fabulous releases that hit book store shelves and among those were some of our favorites. To help narrow down our favorite debs/books, I broke our list into Debs/New Series (today's feature) and Debs/Stand-Alones. Normally we do a top 10 list, but this year I read over 250 books, and about a third of those were debs and there was no way I could list 10, so together Sophie & I have created a list of 22 of our favorite Debs/New Series.

  1. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
  2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
  3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
  4. The Girl of Fire & Thorns by Rae Carson
  5. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
  6. Hourglass by Myra McEntire
  7. The River of Time Series (Waterfall, Cascade & Torrent) by Lisa T Bergren
  8. Legend by Marie Lu
  9. The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton
  10. Possession by Elena Johnson
  11. DIE FOR ME by Amy Plum
  12. HEREAFTER by Tara Hudson
  13. Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs
  14. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
  15. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  16. Blood Red Road by Moira Young
  17. Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey
  18. Eternal Starling by Angie Corbett
  19. Half Blood by Jennifer Armentrout
  20. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
  21. The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
  22. Wither by Lauren DeStefano & The Girl in the Steal Corset by Kady Cross

This list is in no order and features books we rated 4.5 -5 stars that stood out the most for us individually. Each book is linked back to our reviews on the blog. There are many more great debs that we wanted to add to this list, but unfortunately we had to stop at 22. You can read our complete list of 2011 Debs we've read HERE.
