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

Tuesday, 3 November 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish. This week I'll be talking about the debut authors whose second books I can't wait to read!

1. Sarah Ayoub


I really loved Hate Is Such A Strong Word, and so I was so excited to find out that The Yearbook Committee will be released next year! As a side note, that cover looks pretty awesome, I'm liking the vintage vibes.

2. Victoria Aveyard


Not everyone loved Red Queen, though personally I did end up enjoying it. That cliffhanger at the end makes reading the second book a must!

3. Amy Ewing


Another debut author, another dystopian series - I own The White Rose and can't wait to start it!

4. Kathryn Barker


This debut is one of my top reads of 2015 - seriously powerful and definitely in possession of some wow factor. I am so curious to see what Kathryn Barker will come up with next!
5. Fleur Ferris


There have been a few outstanding #LoveOzYA titles this year, and Risk is one of them. Chilling and yet so worth a read, this book has impressed me and so I can't wait to check out the next book from this author which will be released in July 2016!

6. Sandy Hall


For those cute, sweet romances, Sandy Hall nails it. I have Signs Point to Yes so will be checking it out soon! 

7. Maria Dahvana Headley


Magonia is a book that is as weird as it is wonderful. As the first book in a series, I am intrigued to see where on earth (or in the skies) the rest of the story will go. 

8. Thalia Kalkipsakis


Lifespan of Starlight tackled time travel in an Australian landscape, and from an angle which I haven't read before. Technically she's not exactly a debut author, but this is her debut series so I've put it on this list.

9. Stephanie Oakes


This book was another big hit for me, since it was so intense and thought provoking. As a debut it shines, and so I am eagerly awaiting the release of The Arsonist, a YA mystery novel by Stephanie Oakes coming out in 2016 .

10. Amy Zhang


Falling Into Place left me with SO MANY EMOTIONS, and I'm getting the feeling that This is Where the World Ends will be just as heartbreaking.

What debut authors have you anticipating their second novel? 


  1. Ohhhhh...... I await the yearbook committee with bated breath! I love Hate, it's my favourite novel of all time.

    1. It looks like it's going to be a hit! Sarah Ayoub is a fantastic author, I'm sure it will be good :)

  2. Great list! I can't wait for Glass Sword; Red Queen was amazing. TSLoMB was really wonderful too, I hope she writes more books. Nice list!

    1. Thanks Rachel :) Glass Sword has me so excited! I hope she does too, it would be great to see what else she would come up with.

  3. I agree with so many of these! Falling Into Place was one of my top favourites of the year so far, and I CAN NOT wait for her next book to come out. I wasn't a fan of Red Queen much, but I am still super intrigued and that cliffhanger has left me wondering! Same with Magonia.

    1. Yes! I've read the blurb and it certainly sounds like an emotional read. Red Queen did get some mixed reception, but glad to hear you're still curious about what's to come next :)

  4. Great list! Stephanie Oakes and Amy Zhang both made my list as well. I can't wait to read their next books.

    1. Thanks Cynthia :) The bar is definitely set high for their next books!
