A weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish :)
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post is supposed to be about the top ten sequels we are most anticipating. However, as most of you know I have a problem. A serious one. (*sidenote* I tried to be punny in my title…. series-ous… Meh) I start so many series/trilogies and I never finish them! Hence, my little alteration to this week’s post. I bring you: The Top Five Sequels I Desperately Need To Read So That I Can Finish Some of the 12987129487129387 Series I Am Currently in the Middle Of. So, in no particular order… (click the title to head over to the goodreads!)
Shatter Me was one of the first books I reviewed on my blog, which tells you how long ago I read it. It was amazing! It is still one of my favourite books to this day, so who knows why I haven’t read the sequel yet?! ‘Cause I don’t!
Again, Shadow and Bone was another fantastic book that for some reason I have not yet read the sequel of! A kick-ass heroine, a perfectly evil dude, and one of the most creative and freshest ideas for a fantasy novel that I’ve read in ages – what more could you ask for?! I’ve also heard about this other guy in Siege and Storm… I think his name is Sturmhond and people love him??? ;)
I read Inkheart back when I was in grade 5 or 6, and I remember being so captivated by that book. I went out an bought Inkspell right when it came out… but it’s been just sitting on my shelf ever since.
Honestly, I have absolutely no clue why I’ve put off reading Hallowed for so long, and I bet Jamie will be upset that I still haven’t read it!!!!
The Uglies series was another that I started back in elementary school, and for some reason abandoned!!
I’ve heard that Devoted and the third instalment of Elixer, True, both have just gone dramatically downhill. However, I have a morbid desire to read them just to see how everything pans out, and because I adore Hilary Duff and all that she does :P
I read Cinder early this summer and absolutely loved that book! In all honestly, I didn’t really expect to, even though everyone was raving about it. I ended up being pleasantly surprised by it, and now I really can’t wait to read Scarlet!
AHHHHH I actually cannot stop raving about For Darkness Shows the Stars, and I have been waiting forever for Across a Star-Swept Sea to be released!! But, gimme some slack on this one because it did only come out on the 15th of October, which was relatively recently…
Again, I have no excuses. I really just need to power through both of these series.
So tell me: Do you have the same problem as I do?? If you don’t and you’ve read some of these sequels, what did you think of them? Were the better or not as good as the debut book in the series?? I WANT TO KNOW!
