Top 10 Sequels I Can't Wait to Get My Hands On

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is Top Ten Sequels You Can't Wait to Get Your Hands On. I am unbelievably excited for all of these books! Gorgeous sequels, COME TO ME <3


(in order of release date)

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas Aug 27/13
Okay, okay, I know I'm way late on this one... but I'm still stoked to read it and continue the series! Talking briefly to Michelle from Lipstick and Literature about it at the Ontario Blogger Meet-up this weekend just rekindled my excitement for it!

The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines, #4)
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater Sept 17/13
Another late entry but I can't help myself for this, I need it yesterday! The Raven Boys was such an amazing book, and, more than that, the kind of book that leaves me in desperate need of more. So more of Blue and the boys? Yes, please.

The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead Nov 19/13
Richelle Mead knows how to write a story, that's all I'll say. Sydrian Sydrian Sydrian!

Evertrue by Brodi Ashton Jan 21/14
Ahhh, how could Everbound end off like it did?! I'm so excited to see how Brodi Ashton will handle the last book of the series. I'm not sure that I have a way I'd like this one to end myself so I'm fairly open to whatever she has planned!

Cress by Marissa Meyer Feb 4/14
This series is one of my favourites! I'm crossing my fingers for some good interaction between Cinder and Kai and preparing myself for some crazy schemes. Also, I think my mom (who is so not a reader) is more excited for this than I am? She's already planning to snatch up my review copy before I can get to it.

Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3)Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi Feb 4/14
Warner, Adam... who cares? It's all about Juliette! (Okay, and Kenji....) I'm expecting big things from the final installment of the Shatter Me series.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins May 13/14
Finally a break from the supernatural! ;) I can't wait for the warm fuzzies from reading this book. Stephanie Perkins' books are the perfect bad day cure.

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare May 2014
It's... over? It feels like I've been reading this series my entire life (probably because it's been like 5 years now...) to the point where I just want to see how some characters make it out and escape with my sanity! I'm way too invested in some of these characters (like Magnus... and Alec... and Magnus... and Alec...).

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo June 3/14
My brain turns to mush when I even think about this series. Just... what?? Leigh Bardugo has woven one heck of a tale and I am dying to see how she'll end it. These books take so much out of me emotionally and I'm looking forward to/dreading (I'll let you know when I decide) the explosion that this book is sure to be. But like, the way Siege and Storm ended... wow.

Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman Mar 24/15
I'm really relieved to see that Rachel Hartman is taking her time with the sequel to Seraphina because it seems to me the kind of book that requires plenty of planning and tweaking to turn into the intricate, detailed, gorgeous finished product that the first book was. Still though, I would love to have it in my hands!

Lesson learned from today's post: I use way too many brackets (5) and ellipses (9). I assure you though, this is really what it sounds like in my head! Just keeping it real, folks.

So these are my top picks! Which sequels are you dying to get your hands on?

  1. This list is brilliant! I'm so excited about so many of these titles too. Isla and the Happily Ever After and Ruin and Rising are perhaps the two that I really want more than any others. And I can't wait for you to read Crown of Midnight and The Dream Thieves! Both were 5 star reads for me. And hey, I'm all for brackets and ellipses! I use them all the time myself too. ;)

  2. I basically agree with you on all of these. RUIN AND RISING. I *need* that book. I HAVE to know what happens! Also really excited for Cress as I'm completely in love with that series. Crown of Midnight was really awesome, I hope you love it! And I am so looking forward to Shadow Scale. Seraphina was one of my favourite books the year I read it and I can't wait to see what happens next!
