I don't get around to reading too many debuts before the author's second book comes out, so I'm going to break this list up into two parts: debuts that I loved and can't wait for the author's second book and debuts that I loved by authors who already have more books out.

Debuts that have me looking forward to book two
I loved the free-verse style of this novel, and it was so addicting. I'm really interested to see what else Crossan puts out, especially if it is free-verse.
This is one of my all-time favorite novels, and I have been waiting forever for Towles to release a new novel.
This contemporary was funny and sweet, it's not very often I really love a contemporary, but I really enjoyed this one.
This adult novel is a really great family saga. I loved all the really big themes this novel contained and the 1970's setting.
This book really picked up plot wise in the last fifty or so pages, so I'm really interested to see what the sequel holds.
Debuts I loved, and there is already a book two
I might have enjoyed Winters debut more than her sophomore novel, which is really saying something since I loved The Cure for Dreaming. This one is quite creepy and emotional, a combination that works surprisingly well.
Nelson is an amazing writer. I'll Give You the Sun is one of my favorite books I have read this year, and her debut is high on that list too. I will forever read whatever Nelson writes.
This book was so strange and brilliant.
10. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
I really enjoyed this novel about Ernest Hemingway's first wife. I really want to pick up McLain's second novel which came out not too long ago.
Which debut novel should I read before the end of the year?
