Top Ten Tuesday: 10 debut authors whose sophomore novels we're looking forward to

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is 10 debut authors whose sophomore novels we're looking forward to or Top Ten Sophomore Novels That We Loved Just As Much If Not More Than The Author's Debut. I decided to do both because I couldn't come up with ten books in one category. 

7 debut authors whose sophomore novels I'm looking forward to: 

1. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

I really liked Cruel Beauty! I'm waiting for Crimson Bound to come out in paperback but I'm considering buying it in hardback after all! Read my review of Cruel Beauty here!

2. The Duff by Kody Keplinger

I really liked this book, it is one of the best books I read last year! Read my review here!

3. The Martian by Andy Weir

This is easily one of my favourite books this year! You can find my review here!

4. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

I really liked this fantasy novel, I own the second book but I haven't found the time to read it yet. You can find my review of The Lies of Locke Lamora here!

5. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
6. Carrie by Stephen King

You can find my review here.

7. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

3 Sophomore Novels That Were Better Than The Author's Debut 

1. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

All the books in this series just get better and better! Winter is also my most anticipated book of the year, and I can't believe I don't have to wait much longer till it's released! Read my series review here.

2. Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

The first book in this trilogy was okay, not great but okay. The second book was way better and the third book was the best! Read my review of the trilogy here!

3. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me didn't impress me much, I only continued the trilogy because I owned all the books already. I did like the other books way more, so that's why I decided to put Unravel Me on this list. Find my series review here!

Which books are on your list? Don't hesitate to leave a comment!


  1. I can't believe Winter is almost here either!! All summer I was thinking it was too good to be true that it would be out in the fall and kept waiting for the publisher to say it was delayed. That always happens with my anticipated books! But yay!!! It didn't!! I didn't love the DUFF, so I've been weary about reading more by Keplinger. I probably should get over it and give her other stuff a try. Great list!

  2. Thank you! I don't know when or if I eventually will pick another Keplinger book, but I think it's worth a try.

  3. I can't believe I didn't add 3 and 7 to mine too! :)

    Check out my TTT and the weekly meme I hosting on my blog Music Monday.

    1. Haha, I know what you mean! That happens to me all the time :)

  4. I've been waiting for years for another Erin Morgenstern :) I absolutely loved The Night Circus!

  5. 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 LOVED The Martian, I will be devouring whatever he writes next. I just hope I love it just as much. Here's my TTT.

    1. Thank you! I really want to read another novel by Andy Weir! I don't know if it can ever be as good as The Martian, but I'd love to find out!
