Top Ten Debut Authors Who Have Me Looking Forward To Their Sophomore Novel

Hello lovelies. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and today's topic is the  Top Ten Debut Authors Who Have Me Looking Forward To Their Sophomore Novel. As you'll probably see, I cheated here and there BUT I do think that a series should be considered a debut not only the first novel, don't you agree?

  1. I am so glad to find a fan of DON'T TOUCH. I love that book so much and I feel like no one knows about it. I can't wait for Wilson's 2nd book either. Great list! Hope you get around to reading These Broken Stars sequel - that series is too fun :)

    1. Don't Touch is one of the most unique and meaningful books I've ever read, and it's a shame it doesn't really get recognized. Thanks!

  2. Great list and I like the twist you took in the topic. :-) I enjoyed Girl On the Train and am curious to see what the author will come out with next too. I haven't yet read Cinder, but I have a feeling I'll like it when I do. And The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is one I am curious about.

    1. Thanks! Me too, and hopefully it'll be better than her debut - bc it def wasn't perfect. Hope you'll love both books - they were equally amazing! :)

  5. Wonderful list. Dawn Kurtagich seems to be making a lot of lists - including mine. I may have to break down and buy Daughters Unto Devils rather than seeing if my library eventually gets it in. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Dawn Kurtagich absolutely killed it with The Dead House - it's hard to believe this is her debut! Daughters Unto Devils was also super-good, hope you'll love it!

  6. Great list. You have a few books on here that I have read and enjoyed myself. I think I am also going to have to add a few of these to my Christmas wishlist, it looks like I have missed out on some great debuts recently. I am especially excited to read The Girl on the Train, I have heard so many good things about that one. Here’s my TTT.

    1. Hope you'll enjoy some of these novels! Haha, I don't think that's a problem. :D

  8. I know most of them but I have only read two and I have to agree. I'm so excited to read whatever Marissa Meyer publishes in the future specially if it also involves fairytale re-tellings in some sort of way. I love her imagination and how she has re-created the world. And although I wasn't very impressed with The Girl on the Train - though I liked it - I think I will read Hawking's future projects and see how her work develops :)

    1. Marissa Meyer next book sounds super-good - I let you find out for yourself what it is about, but I recommended it on Goodreads for you just now. :) The Girl on the Train definitely could have been better but I really hope the author's next book will be... improved.

  9. These Broken Stars took my breath away! I had no idea it was a debut! Also, I am hoping to read Everything, Everything soon--it sounds so interesting. And that cover is so, so pretty. Also, I LOVE The Darkest Minds and cannot wait for Passenger to be released!

    1. Meagan Spooner did write books before that, but it's pretty impressive that it was one of the author's' debut! Everything, Everything is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. Hope Passenger will be as good as you expect it to be!

  11. YAAASSS TO NICOLA YOON AND STEPHANIE OAKES. I loved their novels a lot! And I'm REALLY excited for something new from Marissa Meyer (it's totally ok to cheat there). I know her other book is a fairytale retelling too, but it's something different from Lunar Chronicles and I NEED IT!

    1. Me too! I could have NEVER told that these were their first novels because they were ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I absolutely love the way Marissa Meyer constructs her retellings - has recognizable resemblances, yet doesn't feel forced. I NEED MORE OF THIS!
