This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is Debuts Authors That Left Me Wanting More. Very interesting that they are all women authors and half are historical fiction. Not that I didn’t read male authors or other genres, but this really shows my true favorites, I guess Only two are from the library, the rest are ARCs. I think I’m more apt to take a chance on an ARC, but when I go to the library I head to favorite authors. The books I put on hold are always from my TBR on Goodreads, so sometimes they are first-time authors for me that I’ve read about on blogs.
These six are all ARCs, and there have been announcements of sophomore books being released or even what is being written. This makes my anticipation even stronger!
- Elinor Florence: Bird’s Eye View
- Erika Swyler: The Book of Speculation
- Lucy Sykes: The Knockoff
- Rebecca Kelley: Broken Homes & Gardens
- Elisabeth Egan: A Window Opens
- Margaret Porter: A Pledge of Better Times
These are all the first in series, with the rest of the books being announced and sometimes even published already. Murder at Rosamund’s Gate is actually a few years old, but I just read the first book this year, so I am counting it as a debut that makes me want more.
- Sally Christie: The Sisters of Versailles
- Mary Lawrence: The Alchemist’s Daughter
- Rachael Richey: Storm Rising
- Susanna Calkins: Murder at Rosamund’s Gate
