Top Ten Tuesday-Sequels I Can’t Wait to Get My Hands On 11/5/13


This week The Broke and the Bookish want to know which sequels are on the top of our “Must Have Now” list. You have one of those lists, right? It was a challenge to keep this one to ten(ish), but luckily I saw that a December list is going to be books of 2014, so I will save some for that list. First a little cheating. There are two books out today that I should have in my hands before I leave (when I get to read them is another story).

Out today:

Champion by Marie Lu. I can’t wait to see how she wraps this one up after all the craziness of Prodigy!


The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan. The twelfth and final book in The Ranger’s Apprentice series. I was satisfied when I thought that The Emperor of Nihon-Ja was the last full length novel, but I am thrilled to have one more adventure with these beloved characters.

Coming Soon: (aka, The Official TTT List)

1. A Stranger Thing by Martin Leicht Nov. 12. I have a teen reader who beat me to the top of the holds list for the sequel to Mothership! Good for her! This book is bound to be a blast. Not a fan of the goofy cover, but I promise you are in for a treat if you haven’t started this series yet.

2. Cress by Marissa Meyer February 4, 2014. Is it February yet?


3. Locke & Key vol. 6 Omega & Alpha by Joe Hill February 4, 2014. I love this creepy graphic novel series and am anxious for the final installment.


4. Perfect Lies by Kiersten White February 18, 2014. I might need a little refresher before I get the sequel to Mind Games.

5. Raging Star by Moira Young April 15, 2014. Rebel Heart brought readers a totally different Saba and I am anxious to see if the fiery girl from Blood Red Road will return.

6. Sunrise by Mike Mullin April 15, 2014. I was surprised by how much I have been enjoying the Ashfall series. I am eager to see how things wrap up. I have high hopes for a happy ending!


7.ย  Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor April 17, 2014. Oh, how Days of Blood and Starlight broke my heart. This one had better put it back together again.

8. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray April 22, 2014. I have six months to reread The Diviners. I think I am almost as excited by that idea as I am by the thought of a new book! I am not sure if this is a final cover. I kind of hope not.

9. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare May, 2014. She won me back. I have to see things through to the end now. Is this the last book? I hope so. I am kind of over really long series. Or am I just over Cassie Clare? Not sure.

10. The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley January 14, 2014. I did not realize that Alan Bradley had just a cruel cliffhanger in him. Oh, my do I need this next Flavia de Luce book now!

And of course…

The Winds of Winter by George R.R. Martin…expected publication 2015?!? He’s writing this, right? I will be a book, right? *SIGH*

Happy Reading!

  2. YES to Sunrise and Lair of Dreams!! They both made my list. I had total nightmares and doomsday thoughts the whole time I was reading Ashfall, so I get a little anxious when I think about reading more of it…. but I just have to because it was so good ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I just read Mothership, and loved it! Elvie is such a fun character – she’s so snarky. And smart and just downright awesome. I cannot wait to read A Stranger Thing. I’m not a fan of the cover either. I liked the original one for Mothership, though.

  11. I’ve been thinking about starting the Ranger’s Apprentice series. I heard it was good.

  12. Ooh thanks for the reminder Legend is another trilogy I need to start soon. Great list! Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  13. I wanted to include Liar of Dreams and Raging Star too – so many books! I’m also excited to see Flavia de Luce make the list! I love that series. Thanks for stopping by! Shannon @ Rex Robot Reviews

  14. Daughter of Smoke and Bone, The Diviners and Cinder – these are all series starters that I am desperate to read! I have heard only wonderful things about all of them. CHAMPION! So excited to finally be able to read that.

    Great list. My TTT.
