I Need These Debut Authors Next Books... RIGHT NOW!


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish.

This weeks topic is:


Debut Authors Who Have Me Desperate To Read Their Next Book


Jennifer Niven & Jenn Bennett

Neither of these are technically debut authors, they have both wrote adult fiction in the past. But they both released their debut YA novels this year, so I am counting them. These two were five out of five reads for me, so I am beyond excited for whatever these authors release next. I will be pre-ordering them and devouring them as soon as I possibly can. Now they just need to announce their next books, I am not a patient person!



Kate Scelsa

Kate's debut novel, Fans of the Impossible Life, was another 5/5 read for me this year. It is an incredible contemporary novel, with wonderfully diverse characters. It also delves into some great themes and topics that I don't see being addressed in many YA novels and, even when I do, not nearly as well as it is done in this one. I can't wait to read whatever she comes out with next, she writes fantastic characters.



Tess Sharpe

I read and absolutely loved the authors first book, Far From You. It was such a surprising read for me, I didn't know what to expect when I was reading it but it wasn't what I got. I thought it was going to be a really predictable YA mystery read, but it wasn't that at all. This book was way more than I would have ever guessed and totally blew me away. I don't want to spoil this book for anyone, I would just recommend reading it. I can't wait for her next book... which has an expected publishing date of...

2017?!?!?!
Katja Millay

During my two weeks off I decided to read a book that had been sitting on my shelf for a really long time - The Sea of Tranquillity. I am a huge fan of Colleen Hoover, I have never been disappointed by one of her books. She has always been one of only a few New Adult authors that I actually read. I had seen her recommend The Sea of Tranquillity so many times, and many of her other readers said they loved it too. So I gave in and tried it.

And I am soooo glad I did. I devoured this in hours, I just could not put it down. I was completely swept up in this story, and I completely fell in love with Katja Millay's writing. When I finished, I immediately went to Amazon to order any other books by the author, only to be completely horrified to find she hasn't wrote anything else. She doesn't even have a new book announced. NOTHING! I am dying. I ended up buying about 15 NA books people said were like this because I was desperate for more. Katja Millay needs to hurry the hell up and give me more of her wondrous writing.

Jennifer Mathieu 

I read her debut novel, The Truth About Alice, when it first came out and really enjoyed it, I believe it was another book that got a 5/5 from me. I had been really excited for her next book. I know it is already out now, but I actually haven't got to it yet. But I need to. I think I might put it on my wishlist for Christmas. I think I might have put it off for a while because it was focusing heavy on the religion aspect, which I wasn't too sure about. But I loved her first book and can't wait to see if I love this just as much.


AND I CAN'T BELIEVE I FORGOT THE NEXT BOOK THE FIRST TIME ROUND!


 
The Martian by Andy Weir

I forgot this the first time round because I didn't realise it was a debut. But then I realised I did because I'd tried to buy up everything else this guy had ever written. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! It is seriously my top read of the year so far. I will recommend it to anyone and everyone. I could not put it down, plus it made me ridiculously happy and was so tense at times that I was crying more from nerves than anything else. I also have to say that this is probably one of the funniest books I have ever read, which is all thanks to the main character Mark Watney. He is so sarcastic and quick witted, and just amazing. I adored this book. GO. READ IT! Then sit around being desperate for Andy's next book with me. I will be reviewing this book and the film very soon, so keep an eye out.

Sadly I couldn't come up with ten, but I am sure I will be kicking myself when I see what others have put on their lists. And then I will probably be adding a million books to my TBR list as well.



I can't celebrate my blogoversary without holding a giveaway for all of my amazing followers. One winner will win up to £30 worth of books from Book Depository. This will be open internationally, as long as Book Depository ships to your country.

  5. I think I am the only person in the world who could NOT get into The Sea of Tranquility! That book just didn't work for me and it was a DNF. But, I swear, I am the only one. I included it on my list today because no one else felt like I did!

  6. All the Bright Places was amazing and I still think about it and I read it back in January (or maybe it was December before it came out, I can't remember now). Great picks I really hope you enjoy them all!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh wow, look at me, having read none of these debuts apart from All the Bright Places! However, the majority of these are on my TBR, so hopefully I will be getting around to them at some point in the coming year or so. They sound so wonderful. And I hope the next books they all write will be equally as wonderful.

  8. Jennifer Niven and Jenn Bennett. YES and YEEES! I couldn't agree more Charnell. Both of those books were so incredibly brilliant in their own right. One made me cry the other made me swoon. Actually, they both made me cry. I couldn't decide between them which one I enjoyed more. It's been years since I read The Sea of Tranquility, but I remember really enjoying that one as well. There's been so many incredible debuts this year, another one was The Secret Lies of Minnow Bly. I really loved that one too. Awesome list poppet, will need to check a few of these out <3

  21. Glad to see you loved Fans of the Impossible Life! I have heard some mixed reviews of it lately, but it really caught my eye. I'm really creeped out by space, so I think I will skip The Martian, but I have heard great things about it!

  31. I adored The Truth About Alice and heard fairly great things about Devoted so I can't wait for it, even though religious books are not at all my things. Jennifer Mathieu definitely deserves to get more popular!

  34. OMG! I know exactly what you mean about Katja Millay... That woman infuriates me!! She went and wrote one of the most amazing books I've ever read and then just stopped and never wrote anything again... what a tease! LOL
    I read The Sea of Tranquility before it even came out -so a while back-, but I still check from time to time to see if the author has anything else in the works... so far no luck :(
    Great list. Thanks for stopping by!

  35. I need to read SOOO many of these! BUT I have read Devoted and thought it was fabulous! And I would definitely read another book of Jennifer Niven's too! And I neeeeed to read Night Owls because I have heard ALL the good things. I don't want to read it as Anatomic Shape either- Night Owls is just so much prettier! Great list :)
