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
2 - Max Wirestone
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.
