Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It’s a fun way for bloggers all over the Internet to connect and post the things they love about books. This weeks topic was to cover our favorite debut authors whose second books we just couldn’t wait to read. To make it my own, I’ve decided I’m going to cover debut authors I want to read that I haven’t had the chance to read yet.
1. Catherine Lacey
Her debut novel “Nobody is Ever Missing” has been highly acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal and New Yorker. She seems like an up-and-coming author that no one should miss out on.
2. Adelle Waldman
Praised by the New Yorker, the Economist, and more, Waldman looks like she’s got this writing thing down. Her novel “The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.” seems to chronicle an interesting love life from a different perspective.
3. Celeste Ng
“Everything I Never Told You” has drawn my eye at the book store more than once. A captivating tale about a Chinese-American family, Ng had been praised for her work by the Huffington Post and others.
4. Merritt Tierce
An acclaimed author, Tierce seems to have a grasp on writing I can only one day dream of holding. Her debut novel, “Love Me Back” features a waitress stuck in a destructive loop.
5. Smith Henderson
His book seems amazing! “Fourth of July Creek” features a social worker who gets tangled up in a young boy’s disrupted life while his own falls apart. This is unlike an other book I’ve read. I’d love to pick it up!
6. Erika Swyler
I was sold at family curse. “The Book of Speculation” also includes mermaids and carnival history. I’m too sure how all of these could relate, but it seems like it would be an interesting read.
7. Sarai Walker
“Dietland” has piqued my interest before. A story about a feminist journey, Walker promises to leave her readers stunned.
8. Suzanne Rindell
Another author I’ve thought about reading before (I really should just start picking these books up when I see them), Rindell’s “The Other Typist” is featured in 1920s Manhattan and follows the lives of the ever-popular flappers of the decade.
I only got to eight this week, but it was a pretty great eight! Let me know if you have any other debut author suggestions for me in the comments below.
