This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is all about sequels! Here are some of the sequels I am impatiently waiting on:
1. Firefight by Brandon Sanderson. I am desperate for more of The Reckoners!
2. As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley. More Flavia!
3. The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly.
4. Winter by Marissa Meyer. Why do I have to wait so long?
5. The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion. Don Tillman is so charming, I am looking forward to more.
6. Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers. I have this last book in the His Fair Assassin series, but I still need to read it.
7. Rivals in the City by Y.S. Lee. I recently caught up on The Agency series and was reminded how much I enjoyed it. I was thrilled to learn there was a fourth book. Hopefully it will be available in the U.S. soon.
8. The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson. The cliffhanger of book two?! Gah!
9. The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. See above. Killer cliffhanger.
10. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. I might need a Diviners refresher before I read this one.
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am eagerly waiting for:
The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
September 24, 2014
From Goodreads: ******Spoiler for The Rosie Project****
“Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back. If you were swept away by Graeme Simsion’s international smash hit The Rosie Project, you will love The Rosie Effect.
The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge.
Rosie is pregnant.
Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.
As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia back together, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him most.
Get ready to fall in love all over again.”
I was charmed by Don and Rosie in The Rosie Project and can’t wait for more of their story!
