Happy Top Ten Tuesday!  Today’s topic is all about sophomore novels.

Four of these are sophomore novels that I can’t wait to read:

  • The Archived by Victoria Schwab
  • The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan
  • Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu
  • Armada by Ernest Cline

And the remaining six are sophomore novels I loved just as much as, if not more than, the author’s debut:

  • Ricochet by Krista & Becca Ritchie
  • Rebel Angels by Libba Bray
  • Golden Son by Pierce Brown
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick

What are your feelings on debuts vs. sophomore novels?  Do you usually prefer one over the other?  I find that sometimes a great debut gets my hopes up too high for the author’s sophomore novel, but other times I find that the author has really grown since writing their debut, and the follow up is even better.
