(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
Now, I don’t read a lot of debut authors.
I know, I’m sorry, I’m a terrible person. It’s just that I always think “I need to read that book by that new author person!” and I don’t get around to it until they have three or four releases.
This means I’m going to do this Top Ten Tuesday a little bit different. I’m going to include some debut authors, yes, but I’m also going to include those who debuted on a series and will soon be releasing their first books independently from a series – in a way, a second novel, because it will be the first opportunity to see them working in an entirely different setting with an entirely different cast of characters.
So, without further ado:
10) Taran Matharu
9) Sally Green
8) Jessica Spotswood
I fell madly, deeply in love with the Cahill sisters exactly a year ago, but I still haven’t been able to read ‘Sisters’ Fate’ as I know it’s going to rip my heart out. I’m too scared! I love Jessica’s writing though, so I’m excited to see what she releases on her own after ‘A Tyranny of Petticoats’ – a short story collection she’s compiled.
7) Sarah Benwell
6) Pierce Brown
5) Michelle Hodkin
4) Veronica Roth
3) Lisa Williamson
2) Melissa Grey
1) Becky Albertalli
EDIT: In one of the strangest twists of all time, Michelle Hodkin’s new book series, ‘The Shaw Confessions’, was announced just hours after I made this post. I’m even more excited now.
