Top Ten Tuesday: Sequel, Now!


This Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is all about sequels. These are the sequels I can’t wait to get my hands on.

Good books take time, and readerly patience is a virtue. Most of the time. But sometimes, the wait between books makes me feel like Veruca Salt.


180064561. Lynn Flewelling- Shards of Time (Nightrunner #7)

It’s the last Nightrunner book. And a locked room mystery! And the cover is really really gorgeous. I’m sad to say goodbye to this series, but I’m looking forward to it all the same.

2. Marissa Meyer- Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3)

I am in love with this imaginative YA series. Meyer has written a series of great
heroines, and I have every expectation Cress will be just as awesome. Plus, look at that cover! 13206828

3. Justin Cronin- The City of Mirrors (The Passage Book 3)

I’m not sure that title is correct, but I’m going with what Goodreads says. I HAVE to know how this series ends.

4.Mary Robinette Kowal- Glamourist Histories Book 4

Again, there’s no title or release date for this. But I heard Kowal read an excerpt of it, and it seemed really fun.

134899255. Courtney Milan- The Countess Conspiracy (Brothers Sinister #3)

Every time I get my hands on a Courtney Milan book I just devour it. Absolute favorite romance writer (okay, probably the only romance writer I read, at least regularly.)

6. George R. R. Martin- The Winds of Winter

I’m starting to kind of hate this series but at the same time I have to know how it ends. Write, George, write like the wind!

7. Jo Nesbo- Police (Harry Hole #10) 18142329

I’m currently trying to go through this series in order, so it will probably be a few months before I can get to this one, but I’m really enjoying the whole series

8.  Meg Cabot- Mediator #7

Earlier this year, Cabot said that she’s writing a continuation to her Mediator series. While the series wrapped up really well years ago, I need this book to be real, and I need it yesterday. I love the Mediator books beyond all reason, and also: NON-GHOST JESSE. Gimme gimme gimme.


So that’s only 8, but I really couldn’t make it to 10 on this one. It’s enough stress waiting for 8.

What’s on your list?

  1. Heehee I love the bottom gif, that’s how I feel most of the time when I am waiting for a series. Cinder and Scarlet are currently sitting on my bookshelf, I am dying to start these as I have only heard amazing things about this series. My TTT.

      It’s a really great series with strong characters. At times it reminds me a little too much of Sailor Moon…but that’s also kind of why I like it? I dunno, I’m an 80s/90s kid.

      I feel like I should add the Legend series to my tbr, as I’m seeing it a lot.

  2. I love the bottom gif too!

    is there even a release date for Winds of Winter? He’s got to write fast, yikes, or otherwise HBO will do the writing for him. We just picked up the 5th book in paperback, but I’m torn! do I do a reread now, so I can read the 5th book, or do I wait till Winds of Winter is on the horizon so I can have everything fresh in my mind?

      The last thing I heard regarding Winds of Winter was 2015, which is RIDICULOUS. I don’t know *when* in 2015, but still. I could be dead by 2015, George. Apparently the writers at HBO have a general outline of how the story ends, but they’ve also diverged enough so that I kind of view the show and the books as different animals by now. If you haven’t read the 5th book yet, it might feel to you like a lot of frustrating filler if you have to wait two more years for new material. It was the first book that I read as it was published instead of years later, and that’s how I feel about it, but you may feel different. (it does have great parts, but man does GRRM need a brave editor to make him cut things down).
