Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait To Get
So I haven’t started any new series and a lot of the sequels I was waiting for came out this year. I’ll amend this and say that the following are the sequels I can’t wait to read.
- Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman
I’m a crazy fan of Seraphina and while I know ARCs are already going around, I don’t think I want to read an ARC. I think I will prefer reading it as a finished copy just so I can get the most enjoyment out of it. Yeah.
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
I love love love The Raven Cycle and it surprises me that I haven’t yet read the book but I think it’s due to me trying to make it last longer. I will read it and I will probably review the books as I reread them in order to read Lily Blue. So anticipate it!
- House of Sand and Secrets by Cat Hellisen
I really liked the first one and I’ve heard some amazing reviews of this one so I want to read this one a lot.
- The Golden Specific by S. E. Grove
I liked the first one quite a bit and I enjoy a different heroine any day.
- Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
I am anxious to see how things end. Happily I hope.
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater: I have the book sitting on my shelf. Looking at me all accusatorially. Too bad NaNoWriMo has taken over my life.
- The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson: I am very, very concerned for Rory.
- Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray: EVIEEEE! COME BACK TO ME!!! 🙁
- Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, and Robin Wasserman: More short stories! More Magnus Bane! HOPEFULLY MORE OF JESSE WILLIAMS’ SWEET SEXY VOICE! *ahem* (Sorry. I just have a lot of feelings about that man’s voice.) Also waiting on Lady Midnight which will have the first out genderqueer shadowhunter.
- Winter by Marissa Meyer: There’s also the “extra” novella that happens between this one and Cress which I want to read. Anything about the Lunars piques my interest.
Didn’t we do at similar TTT recently? Oh well – apologies for any repetition in my book choices.
- The Castle Behind Thorns by Merrie Haskell. Because The Princess Curse and Handbook for Dragon Slayers were excellent.
- The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson. Book three of The Shades of London. I think Yash expected me to be mildly spooked by The Name of the Star, but I was hooked. The Madness Underneath ended on a horrible cliffhanger (something akin to being smacked in the stomach when you stretch your spine while standing beside the wrong person) aka a well-written, alarmingly real set-up (plus, okay, the ghost elements) that I would say packed a powerful emotional punch if that phrase wasn’t trite. (But it did, okay?)
- Clariel: The Lost Abhorsen by Garth Nix. Mogget really wasn’t subtle, and Old Kingdom fans have been wondering about Chlorr’s past for years.
- Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman. Dragons, humans, politics, and music. I can’t wait.
