Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, which features (you guessed it!) top ten lists on a given topic each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait to Get My Hands On.
1. Cress by Marissa Meyer
My level of WANT for this book is through-the-rough. Like, ALMOST Harry Potter levels. Not quite, but almost, and that’s quite a compliment in & of itself.
2. Split Second by Kasie West
I really loved Pivot Point, especially the original ending, and I MUST know what happens next!
3. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
The Infinite Sea is the sequel to The 5th Wave, and I’m quite curious about it. I LOVED The 5th Wave, but for some reason I can’t figure out how I feel about the sequel. Still, I’m definitely looking forward to this one!
4. Rebel by Amy Tintera
Reboot was one of those books that many people were disappointed by, but I personally LOVED. I had lots of thoughts on why the story in Reboot happened the way it did, but all that to say, I’m really looking forward to Rebel. I’m also glad that it’s a duology instead of a story being dragged out into a trilogy.
5. Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau
Independent Study is the sequel to The Testing, which proceeded to terrify me in much the same way reading The Hunger Games for the first time did. I thought there were a lot of similarities between the two books, but Independent Study worked so well because I was actually AFRAID for the characters, which hasn’t happened much in Dystopia recently.
6. Dreams of God & Monsters by Laini Taylor
Soo I haven’t ACTUALLY gotten around to reading Days of Starlight & Blood yet, but you know what? I’m still excited for this one. I love Karou, I love Akiva, and I have reason to believe this book is going to be AWESOME based on the title & the cover alone(how awesome of a title is this? I LOVE it!)
7. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
So. . . yeah, this is another one I haven’t gotten around to reading the second book. Unravel Me has been sitting on my shelf since JUNE, but I’m just so intimidated by a few things. A)It’s size, and B) Some of the. . . ~things~I’ve heard about. BUT I will read it soon so that I can wait impatiently for Ignite Me like everyone else.
8. The One by Kiera Cass
Yup, not gonna lie, looking forward to this one. I can’t say I ENJOY The Selection books, since I hate they’re classified as “Dystopia” and the characters FRUSTRATE me, but for some UNKNOWN reason, I can’t help but to be compelled by them. It’s like some sort of spell or something, but for some reason I can’t quite fathom, I just really need to know how this book ends.
9. Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd
I was a bit surprised that I liked the first book, The Madman’s Daughter, so much. It didn’t blow me away or anything, but it was enjoyable, and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next.
10. Chasing Before by Lenore Appelhans
Level 2 was a book I really enjoyed WHILE I was reading, but forgot about for most of the year, until the cover for Chasing Before was revealed. And while I’m not a fan of the cover, I AM eager to see what happens next in the afterlife for Felicia.
