Top Ten Debut Authors Who Have Me Looking Forward To Their Sophomore Novel.

Hi! ๐Ÿ˜€

I read some really amazing books by some awesome debut authors this year and I can’t wait to see more from them! I don’t quite have 10 authors to share that I read this year, so I will also list a coupleย that I haven’t read yet, but am DYING to read their first book and hoping to fall in love with them and be looking forward to their sophomore novels.

2015 debut authors I read and loved:



I am really stoked and looking forward to the sophomore novels from these authors! I know I will be auto-buying anything these authors put out. I enjoyed all of these books so much and can’t wait for more from them! Some are the first book in series, so you know I am dying to know what happens next in those. I highly recommend all of these books to everyone if you haven’t had the chance to check them out!

  • Becky AlbertalliSimon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agendaย – If every book is as amazing as Simon vs. is then I will be one happy camper. This book had me laughing and smiling non-stop.
  • Lauren Bird HorowitzShattered Blueย –ย Shattered Blue was so super amazing and OMG that twist at the end. I need MORE from Lauren as soon as possible!
  • I.W. GregorioNone of the AboveI finished None of the Above in pretty much a day, because it was just so amazing and hard to put down.
  • Nicola YoonEverything, Everything Everything, Everything was EVERYTHING! I stayed up so late finishing this book, because it just didn’t feel right going to sleep with it not finished. Hands down one of my favorites this year.
  • Victoria AveyardRed Queenย – HOLY WOW! I loved Red Queen so much and it continued to shock me. I went through the emotions while reading this book.
  • Francesca ZappiaMade You UpMagic eight ball says YOU NEED TO READ THIS NOW! Zappia did an amazing job with Made You Up and it’s another book that is hard to put down.
  • Sabaa TahirAn Ember in the AshesAHHH! I lovelovelove Sabaa Tahir’s writing style and this story. It was everything I could ever want in a book and I need more ASAP!
  • Stephanie TromlyTrouble is a Friend of Mineย – Trouble is a Friend of Mine is one of the strangest and most hilarious books I have read this year. Digbyย definitelyย made this book what it was.

2015 authors I haven’t read, but really want to:


I am really looking forward to reading these books and I have been all year. I’m actually pretty sad that I didn’t get to them at all this year, but hopefully I will soon! I am hoping I fall in love with them and the authors and hopefully be super stoked for their sophomore novels. I’ve heard nothing but good things about them! There are PLENTY more that I am DYING to read as well, so many more! They can be a list all on their own!

What are some debut authors that you have read? Have you read any of these? Let me know and link me to your TTT posts!

I still can’t believe that it’s November! Where did this year go? I’m pretty sure I went to sleep on January first and woke up and it was November. Or it could have been that I’ve had my noseย in all of these books that the year flew by without my knowledge! In case you missed it, I put up my October recap post of all the books I read in October. Feel free to check that out over here.

I hope you have an awesome Tuesday!

  2. I have read all of two books that you mentioned. xD I wasn’t the biggest fan of Red Queen, but I THINK I’m still interested in the sequel. An Ember in the Ashes was SO good! I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel.
    Also, I really need to get my hands on Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda as well as Everything, Everything. Nothing but rave reviews everywhere.
    Great post, Ashley! x

    • I’ve noticed that people have either loved Red Queen so much or hated it. I’m really curious as to what happens next in the series. An Ember in the Ashes is definitely one I really can’t wait for the sequel!
      Hopefully you can read Everything, Everything and Simon vs. soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Great list. You have a few books on here that I have read and enjoyed myself. I think I am also going to have to add a few of these to my Christmas wishlist, it looks like I have missed out on some great debuts recently. I am especially excited to read Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda, I have heard so many good things about that one. Hereโ€™s my TTT.

  4. Oh I need to read An Ember in the Ashes and None of the Above so I finally know why everyone loves them so much!! I feel left out ๐Ÿ˜ฆ haha!
    Ever since your review of Shattered Blue I have been so interested in checking it out! I need to get my hands on a copy! Great list!!!

  5. Oh yay! We do have a lot of the same books on our lists! I also have quite of few of these in my physical TBR pile too. I’ve been meaning to finally read Made You Up for almost 6 months now but it’s at the very bottom of my pile and I can’t be bothered to get it out hahaha. That’s actually the laziest reason ever.

    • I’ve seen lots of books on my list on so many lists today. I think everyone has read or want to read these, which is always cool. More people to fangirl with! Made You Up was so good! Maybe you can accidentally knock over your TBR pile and it won’t be on the bottom anymore! ๐Ÿ˜›
