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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. The Golden Specific by S. E. Grove
    I liked the first one quite a bit and I enjoy a different heroine any day.
  5. Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
    I am anxious to see how things end. Happily I hope.


  1. 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.
  2. The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson: I am very, very concerned for Rory.
  3. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray: EVIEEEE! COME BACK TO ME!!! 🙁
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  1. The Castle Behind Thorns by Merrie Haskell. Because The Princess Curse and Handbook for Dragon Slayers were excellent.
  2. 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?)
  3. 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.
  4. Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman. Dragons, humans, politics, and music. I can’t wait.
