A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks prompt is the top ten sequels I can't wait for. Now I'm the kind of person who typical likes to binge a series because I am not very good at waiting. I'm probably the most impatient person I know. SO here are a few sequels that I am impatiently waiting for!
1.) Firefight by Brandon Sanderson - The Reckoners #2
Release Date: January 6, 2015 (Add to Goodreads)
The first book in this series, Steelheart, was my first Sanderson and I loved the world-building, the complex characters, the thrilling action, and the insane plot twists. I'm super invested in these characters and I need to know what happens next because I have theories and that reveal at the end blew my mind!
2.) The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon - The Bone Season #2
Release Date: January 27, 2015 (Add to Goodreads)
The Bone Season was utterly captivating. The world in this series is completely incredible and I am so excited to return to this future London and explore more of the aether and learn more about these dubious characters. I'm hoping the exposition and info-dumping is over and we can just explore this amazing world!
3.) Skandal by Lindsay Smith - Sekret #2
Release Date: April 2015 (Add to Goodreads)
I loved Sekret! The combination of Historical Fiction set in Soviet Russia in the 1960s with teenage psychic spies, it was brilliant and so unique. The characters were complex, the romance was swoony, and the plot was full of mystery. I have theories and I can't wait to see if I am right!
4.) NIL Unlocked by Lynne Matson - NIL #2
Release Date: May 12, 2015 (Add to Goodreads)
I didn't even know that this was going to be a series. I mean I'm not complaining. I loved exploring this mysterious and creepy island and I'm more than willing to do it again and learn more! I mean the best character in this series is the island!
5.) Untitled Throne of Glass #4
Release Date: September 10, 2015 (Add to Goodreads)
I marathoned the first three books in this series and the novellas and I am completely hooked. The characters are amazing, the world is growing more and more interesting, and I am really intrigued to see where it all leads. I love that I have three more books in this series but I still want them all now!
|This is the UK cover|
6) The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May - The Falconer #2
Release Date: ??? September 2015 in the UK (Add to Goodreads)
THAT ENDING! The Falconer was the book that got me into steampunk and stories with fairies or fae. It was full of action and adventure with an amazing world that combined historical elements with fantasy elements. But mostly THAT CLIFFHANGER! Who ends a book at the climax?
7.) Untitled The Raven Cycle #4
Release Date: 2015. October? (Add to Goodreads)
I also marathoned this series recently and this is the last book in the series. While I am excited to see how it all ends, I will be so sad to let it all go. These characters are some of my absolute favorites and I need to know if my ships will sail. I know it's going to bee full of feels and I'm not sure I'm ready!
8.) Untitled The Young Elites #2
Release Date: October 2015? (Add to Goodreads)
I finished The Young Elites a few days ago and I'm still not over it. Just thinking about it brought tears to my eyes. I can only think of five books where that happened! But that book was dark, dramatic, and traumatizing in the best possible way and I NEED to continue with this series, this world, and these characters ASAP!
9.) Winter by Marissa Meyer - The Lunar Chronicles #4
Release Date: November 24, 2015 (Add to Goodreads)
I binged the first three books in this series in February and got totally hooked. I'm excited to see how it all ends. I am however not excited that this got pushed back to November but if it gives us a great conclusion and Fairest (a villain story) then I'm cool with it!
10.) The Winds of Winter - A Song of Ice and Fire #6
Release Date: Your guess is as good as mine! (Add to Goodreads)
Do I really need to explain why this book is on my list? I feel like I have compartmentalized my impatience for this book so much that I almost didn't include it. I need it so bad! I mean the TV show has kind of caught up. I need to find out what happens! I mean there were some horrifying cliffhangers for some favorite characters! Great! Now I'm losing my shit thinking about it. FANTASTIC!
So what sequels are you anxiously waiting for? Are any of the books I included on your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!
And if you haven't yet, I have a giveaway to celebrate my blogoversary that ends on Friday. Two winners will win a stack of five books each so go check it out [HERE]
The only one of these I'm familiar with is Winter from The Lunar Chronicles and I still have to read Cress! And how is George R.R. Martin even still writing?! My fingers would have fallen off. Haha! Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Here are my Top Ten!
I heard THE FALCONER was so great..I love cliffhanger endings, so I need to get on it. I really can't wait for THE MIME ORDER either.ReplyDelete
Oh I still need to read Cress! I have it in my possession, but I still have yet to read it. However, I'm super excited to get my hands on Winter because I think the whole series looks great on the shelf! I haven't read any of the other books yet, but I've heard about things about The Raven Boys and The Young Elites! :DReplyDelete
Amber @ bookish wonders
The Falconer is a steampunk book?!? ZOMG! I need to move it up on my TBR pile! I totally agree about Winter! I don't want to wait until November! I need it now! Fingers crossed that Fairest is really good and makes up for it being pushed back.ReplyDelete
Ok, so I have either read or want to read a lot of the books on your list, so I'll just go in order. Steelheart is a book I have and it sounds so unique! I'm definitely going to try and pick it up soon, glad to hear you enjoyed it! And I remember reading Sekret and talking about how awesome it was- I'm super excited for Skandal! NIL is another book I really want to read, I've heard great things about it. I hadn't realized it was a series, either, but I'm so excited about that! I need to catch up on the Throne of Glass series and read The Falconer as well. About 10 pages away from finishing The Young Elites, by the way and cannot wait to discuss! And of course, yay for The Lunar Chronicles!ReplyDelete
OOoh some good ones! Of course, I'm a bit behind on some of these series. Meaning I still need to read the first book! Like The Bone Season and Nil!! Eager for more Lunar Chronicles and possibly the second Young Elites book. The first one really threw me through a loop! Hoping the second one is a bit better! Great picks!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
