Frequently Asked Questions

how are the seasons separated?

Some publishers define release seasons differently, so I standardized the way I define seasons on this list in the following way:

WINTER: January - March

SPRING: April - June

SUMMER: July - September

FALL: October - December


my book isn't on this list!

do you hate me?

No I don't hate you!

I built this list by parsing Facebook groups, Twitter chats, Goodreads lists, and more. If you are a MG or YA author who is debuting in 2019, you belong on this list! Please fill out THIS FORM and I will for sure get you added!


My information is wrong.

how dare you?

There are over 200 MG/YA debuts in 2019 and I am but one human being! 

If a link is broken, or your title/release date/cover/etc has changed, fill out THIS FORM and I'll get it fixed. ^_^


this list is huge. do you ever sleep?





How is this list even arranged?

Both the table of contents and the actual lists themselves are arranged in the following order:

  1. Season

  2. Release Date

  3. Book's Title

If the book's season is known but not the date, it will go at the end of the season list. If the month is known but not the date, it will go at the end of the month list.

I used to do the table of contents in this order, with the lists arranged by date then author's last name, but the two lists being arranged differently wasn't sitting well with my inner cataloguer, so I changed them to all be the same.


Are you doing this for any other groups?

At the moment, I have another list like this in the works for the MG/YA 2020 Upperclassmen; that is, any authors who are posting a non-debut novel in 2020.

I would totally do this for other debut groups, but I don't want to step on any toes if one of them is already doing one! If another group would like me to do that, or if someone would like to talk to me about how I did mine, I'd love to chat!
