Top Ten Tuesday: Debut Authors That Have Me Looking for Their Sophomore Novel

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Apparently, I don't read very many debut books.  I'm going to have to change that next year.  Here are 7 authors that have me looking forward to their sophomore novels!

1. Stephanie Tromly - I flew through Trouble is a Friend of Mine and it seems to me that her sophomore novel will be a sequel which makes me so so excited because I was not ready to be done with Digby.  He is awesome!

2. Laura Wetterson - She wrote such a fun story with My Faire Lady.  It was the first book I read that took place at a Renaissance Faire, which is one of my favorite places.  I love that aspect of the book and it was a very cute read.

3. Leah Rae Miller - The Summer I Became A Nerd was such a great fast read.  I loved that it put being a nerd in a very positive light and it even included LARPing which was fun to read.  I read this book a couple of years ago and I'm excited to see what she will write in the future.

4. T. Michael Martin - I enjoyed reading The End Games and definitely liked his writing style.  It was an incredible journey of survival.  I'm very intrigued to see what his next book will look like.

5. Sarah Raasch - So technically her sophomore book is out already, but I haven't had a chance to pick it up.  It's the sequel to Snow Like Ashes which was an amazing book!  I thoroughly enjoyed it and really got into that fantasy world.  Reading the sequel will happen so very soon.

6. Lori Goldstein - Her first book Becoming Jinn first caught my attention because I hadn't seen very many books about genies.  It sounded interesting and very unique so naturally I preordered it and then read very soon after I got my copy.  It was such an interesting story and her sophomore novel will be the sequel so I'm very excited to learn more about the world of jinn!

7. Ernest Cline - Ready Player One was highly entertaining and pretty much a great read.  So his sophomore novel should be just as good since I'm pretty sure it follows the same video game vein as his first.


  1. Great list! I haven't read any of these - though Ready Player One is on my TBR - and one or two I haven't even heard of. I hope you get to read more of these authors' work soon! :)

  2. This is a great list. I am hoping to pick up Ice Like Fire soon since I recently read Snow Like Ashes and loved it.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Snow Like Ashes is one I really want to get to, but don't know when I will, usual story, too many great books, too little time!
