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


I've seen this meme on a lot of blogs and decided to join in. This meme was created by The Broke and Bookish. Every Tuesday there is a new topic that involves a list of ten books. 

This week's topic: Top Ten Debut Authors Who Have Me Looking Forward To Their Sophomore Novel 


1) Heidi Heilig


Brittany: I'm extremely amazed at Heidi's imagination come to life in her book The Girl From Everywhere. It's a really magical book that reminds me so much of Studio Ghibli. I'm really excited to find out what is Nixie's next adventure!


2) Lucy Keating


Brittany: You guys should know by know how much I looooooove this book. Since reading it, I haven't let it be far from me so I can fall back into all of my favorite moments. It's such a beautiful story that's well-written and witty.


3) Renee Ahdieh


Brittany: I was completely blown away by The Wrath & The Dawn and I'm dying to get my hands on the sequel. The world-building, the characters, with a unique spin on a fairy tale? What more could you ask for?


4) Sabaa Tahir


Brittany: I was just a giant ball of feels after reading An Ember in The Ashes. I read it in one sitting, and around 2AM when I finished I just sat clutching the book to my chest and rocking back and forth. This was back before we had a sequel confirmed! I would have just died if we were left with that ending. BUT all is right in the world because we get a sequel in 2016! 



5) Victoria Aveyard


Brittany: Red Queen flew off the pages into a symphony of feels that I was not prepared to handle. It was one of the few books that I could imagine without putting a lot of effort, the writing just paints everything perfectly in your mind. I don't expect any less from Glass Sword and pretty much anything else Aveyard might write in the future.


6) Michael Jensen & David Powers King


Brittany: Woven was a very unexpected fun read. All I knew before reading it was how a close-minded publisher dropped this amazing book. Honestly, it was their loss and Scholastic's gain. That being said, these two can count on me to be reading all of their future work.


7) Kim Leggitt


Brittany: Kim Leggitt has made me wonder if I should give the horror genre (at least in YA) another go. Anyone who can do that to a wimp like me, is pretty amazing.



8) Kathy MacMillan


Brittany: Kathy MacMillan really knows how to build a culture and a world, and I really loved the setting in Sword and Verse. I'm very curious about what other worlds MacMillan has in store for all of us!



9) Nicola Yoon 



Nikki: Everything, Everything has completely changed my mind about contemporaries! Nicola Yoon is a great writer, and I would love to read anything else written by her. Her prose, dialogue, style—I need more!


10) Brianna Shrum


Nikki: It's really hard to find a good fairy tale retelling, but I love this one! It managed to be original, despite being a retelling, and had everything I was looking for. Another book by Brianna Shrum? Yes, please!



What Sophomore Novels are you looking forward to?

  2. This is an awesome list. I haven't read any of the books you mention, but so many of them sound good. Renee Ahdieh is an author I have been wanting to try. Everything Everything sounds good. All of the books you mention. I'll have to look for Woven. I hadn't heard of that one, but you've got me curious.

  8. 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 An Ember in the Ashes, I have heard so many good things about that one. Here's my TTT.
