Top 10 Debut Authors Who Have Me Looking Forward to their Sophomore Novel

For this one I can only do 5.  The only other debut author I read this year already has a bunch more books out, since he debuted a couple years ago.  I think a challenge for me next year is to read more debuts.

1 - Moïra Fowley-Doyle  

I really enjoyed The Accident Season.  I think my problems with it were more of a cultural thing.  I even stated this in my review: "As awesome as this story was, it could have been so much better.  I'm expecting great things from Moïra in the future.  It's a solid debut, and a lot of authors start a little shaky before they really hone their writing and become amazing best selling authors.  I really hope she is one of these authors."

2 - Max Wirestone 

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss was utterly amazing.  I loved every second of it.  I can't wait for future amazing geeky books from him!

3 - David Hofmeyr 

The Stone Rider was a really fun read.  I can't wait to see what happens next!  But since I don't consider sub sequential books in a series as sophomore novels, I also can't wait to see what world he builds in his second series!

4 - Emiko Jean 

 One of my favorite books this year.  I read We'll Never be Apart back in June (while at BEA) and it's stuck with me.  I can't wait to see what else she comes up with!

5 - Constance Lombardo 

 Mr. Puffball was really fun, and I want to see what wacky worlds she'll come up with for her next one.

I'll throw in one extra.  My friend's next book. I can't wait for him to finish a draft so I can read it!  His first book (which I mentioned briefly here) was amazing, and to take a break from that world he started writing another story that, from the little bit he's told me about, sounds awesome.
