Top 5 Tuesday – Debut Novels

Happy Tuesday, Homo sapiens! Welcome to another Top 5 Tuesday!

Top 5 Tuesday was originally hosted by Shanah at Bionic Bookworm and now found its home with Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.

Best Debut Novels


The Kite Runner is Khaled Hosseini’s marvelous first novel. The story of friendship between two boys in Afghanistan. This definitely swept me away!

The Sympathizer Book Cover

The Sympathizer is a powerful novel from Viet Thanh Nguyen about the Vietnam War and its aftermath. The author definitely has a way with words!


A Man Called Ove is a charming novel about a grumpy old man named Ove. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry as the story unfolds. A Very memorable read from Fredrik Backman.


On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong is a devastatingly beautiful debut novel. It was written in a form of a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. This is the kind of book that feels like a heart bleeding in pages.


The Silent Patient is an outstanding, shocking and unforgettable psychological thriller debut novel from Alex Michaelides. Total page-turner!

Happy Tuesday!

Basically a breathing, moving, eating and happy-go-lucky homo sapiens. Full-time daydreamer and part-time paranoid. I love reading, I love Roger Federer, I love food.
