Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Sequels

Not sure if I'll make it to ten again this week. I've been trying to avoid starting new series lately. This is mostly because I don't tend to finish them and also because I really can't stand waiting for them to finish, so I don't start a series until all the books are out. So, in order to make this TTT worth it this week worth it, I am going to add a few sequels that are already out as well as third books (they're also sequels- sort of- right?)

TTT is hosted over at The Broke and Bookish

Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On

1) Split Second by Kasie West- This is the sequel to Pivot Point and I loved Pivot Point, and I am SO curious as to where West is going to take us from here. Bring on the parallel universes.

2) Shadowplay by Laura Lam- This is the sequel to Lam's debut, Pantomime. I really liked Pantomime is was an interesting novel set in the circus. There were some crazy things that happened at the end of the first novel and I am eager to see what happens next.

3) Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi- I know very well that this book has been out for ages and that I could have read it by now. But I haven't, and I have heard SO many things about chapter 62, that I need it in my hands. It's just finding the time with all the other books I can't wait to read. I think I am also holding out for Ignite me. I really hate waiting for series to end. Waiting for that last book is killer.

4) The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- I am pretty excited about this one. I can't wait to see how everything ends. Particularly because Michelle has known how it was going to end from the very beginning. She had the end before everything else and I want to know what it is. June 2014 seems so very far away!!

5) Between the Spark and the Burn by April Genevieve Tucholke- This is the sequel to Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (which I think has the best title ever). Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea was one of the weirdest books I had ever read. But I enjoyed it, and I really liked Tucholke's writing and I want more of it- In August.

6) Erased by Jennifer Rush- This may be the sequel I am the most excited about! I absolutely loved Altered (if you haven't read it, get on it).  Hot boys, lost memories, adventure, what more can you ask for?

7) Cress by Marissa Meyer- This is the third instalment of the Lunar Chronicles, and I am pretty pumped. Scarlet introduced us to some pretty amazing characters and I am eager to meet up with them again. This series has been a wonderful surprise to me, as I generally stray away from sci fi. But, both Cinder and Scarlet were SO good.

8) Burning Kingdoms by Lauren DeStefano- This is the sequel to Lauren's newest trilogy which began with Perfect Ruin. Perfect Ruin ended in such a way that I wanted the next book right then and there. However, Burning Kingdoms doesn't come out for a little while. Sigh.

Well it looks like it's only a top eight tonight guys. I just don't have that many new series on the go.

~Happy Reading!


  1. I CAN'T WAIT FOR RETRIBUTION!!! This series has been a crazy mind trip! And seriously, I have no idea where she is going to take us. Considering it made me feel like I was slowly slipping into insanity myself, it's going to be RIDICULOUS. I can't wait I can't wait AHHHH

  2. I also can't wait to read the last book in the Mara Dyer series. I've loved it SO much.

  3. Great choices on Split Second and Erased. I've read them both and easily two of the best I've read in terms of sequels/series enders.

    My TTT List

  4. CHAPTER 62!! Haha all the love for Unravel Me <3 And I NEED to read Scarlet now. Cress sounds so exciting! I was devastated by the Pivot Point ending so I need Split Second. I'm quite happy that the next few months have lots in store, really :D And great picks!

  5. Really need to read quite a few of these series - I'm especially eager to read The Lunar Chronicles, Pivot Point and Tahereh Mafi's books. Great list. My TTT.

  6. LOVVEEE your list. So many awesome books that I need in my life already!!

  7. I still need to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea!

  8. Hi Sara. So glad to find another Winnipegger in the blogosphere! Can't wait to chat with you about books and such. We are actually trying to start up a book club but having a hard time synchronizing schedules. Lol. We'll keep you posted in case you're interested.

    Anyway, I haven't read any of these series yet. Eeep! I'm so behind, it's not even funny. But great list! Happy reading!!!

  9. I should really take a page from your book and stop starting series until all the books are out. I have so many on the go at the moment! And you have a few on here that I am very tempted to start early, actually - Pivot Point, Shatter Me, Altered. I also still need to read Scarlet and The Evolution of Mara Dyer - eek! Sooo many series, so little time!
