It’s Top Ten Tuesday again with the Broke & Bookish!
This week, we’re sharing upcoming sequels we REALLY want to read!
As you may know, many books in the world of YA (and even Middle Grade) are series books. There might be two or three or four or even more books in one series. Take Inkheart, for example. Girl of Fire and Thorns. The list goes on. So when you start a novel, you may not be saying goodbye to its characters at the end. That can be a good thing.
But it can also be a bad thing.
It can be frustrating to wait for the sequel to a book you absolutely love.
Seriously. A year is a long time to wait.
I can relate to this with the first two books I share below. I’m DYING to get to these sequels by Marie Rutkoski and Danielle Paige.
And those are just the beginning….read on to find out what other sequels I’m most excited about reading!
The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski
(The Winner’s Curse #2)
The Winner’s Curse was one of my favorite reads of 2014, and probably my favorite high fantasy read of the year.
The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
(Dorothy Must Die #2)
Dorothy Must Die was one of my favorite debut reads of 2014!
Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman (Seraphina #2)
I just got the first book, Seraphina, and am already excited about the sequel!
Winter by Marissa Meyer (Lunar Chronicles #4)
I just finished Cress a few weeks ago and I CAN’T WAIT for this to be out. The world needs Winter now!!! Reworked fairy tales are some of my favorite kinds of stories and I adore the Lunar Chronicles. Can’t wait for this one. We’re in trouble though. This isn’t coming out until November 2015. What is to be done??!?
This is almost too much, so I’m not going to think about it.
Fairest by Marissa Meyer (Lunar Chronicles 3.5)
Of course I can’t wait for this one too, which is out sooner than Winter, so that’s a good thing.
Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke
by Anne Blankman (Prisoner of Night and Fog #2)
The first book in this series was FABULOUS!! YA Historical fiction at its finest, in my opinion. This one is coming out soon so I will be jumping up and down when I get a hold of it.
The Stars of Summer (All Four Stars #2)
by Tara Dairman
If you read my post about Tara’s book from The Midnight Garden’s Blog Tour, you will remember how much I loved All Four Stars #1! An ARC of this will be coming my way soon so I’m VERY EXCITED!
And now for a few of the coverless sequels!
The Ninja Librarians #2
by Jennifer Swann Downey
Ok, so there isn’t even a GoodReads entry for a sequel for this middle grade fantasy, but there must be one soon!! I loved the first installment in what I expect is going to be a series, so we need #2!!! Time traveling Librarians who are ninjas. That’s all I need to say.
The Time Traveler’s Wife #2 by Audrey Niffenegger
Somewhere out there, Niffenegger has said something about a follow up to TTTW in which we find out more about Henry and Clare’s daughter, Alba. I need this!! But I may not be getting it anytime soon because GoodReads doesn’t even have an entry and my only evidence was a segment of the book that was published in a special edition of TTTW.
The 5th Wave #3 (The 5th Wave Series)
This is coming out in August 2015. I just finished the second book in the series, but I really can’t wait to find out what happens to Cassie and her band of friends and whether they survive the alien invasion.
