Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Debuts Have Me Looking Forward to the next Book

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the Broke & the Bookish.

The official topic for this week's top ten is "Top Ten Debut Authors who have me looking forward to their next book" or "Top  Ten Sophomore Novels I Loved Just as Much as The Debut". Well, this one's rather hard for me. Because I don't pay attention to if they are debut authors or not. So I decided to a little bit different. There's at least one on here that is a sophomore novel of an author. The others are all authors who are new to me that I'm excited about reading their next book.

1. Worth the Time by Laura Jackson - Laura's debut, Worth the Wait, delighted me. And made me excited for her second book. This one came out in February of 2015, and I really wanted to know how she'd manage to take the character that everyone hated and redeem her. She did an excellent job of that by the way. So Laura, when's the next book coming out?

2. The Concealed by Sarah Kleck - I got this one as a freebie from Amazon because I'm a prime member. It was one of their Fiction First picks a few months ago. Sarah's a new to me author, and I was captivated by this book. I've already pre-ordered the next one.

3. Five Brides by Eva Marie Everson - She's a new to me author. But she captured my attention, so I'll be looking at some more books she's written.

4. Accept This Dandelion by Brooke Williams - I was positively delighted to read this one. She's a new to me author, though I've since read most of hers.

5. In Good Company by Jen Turano - This is one of those authors that I kept hearing about and finally got around to reading. I am certainly going to be reading more of her books.

6. The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron - This may very well be my favorite book this year. I'm pretty sure that this was her debut. But I ate it up. I promptly read the second and am now eagerly awaiting her next book.

7. Not By Sight by Kate Breslin - I loved her debut book, For Such a Time, and was THRILLED to read her sophomore novel, Not By Sight. I have to wonder what she's got in store for her readers next.

8. The Gifting Series by K. E. Ganshert - Yes, I know that this author's been out a few years. But since this summer marked her debut in the YA genre, I have to list her. I devoured these three books over the course of a weekend. I can't wait to see what Katie has next in store in the YA world.

9. Dauntless by Dina L. Sleiman - I loved this book, and the sequel was sweet too. I'm not sure if Dauntless is her debut or not, but it was awesome. I can't wait for her third one to come out next year.

And I can't think of any more.
