Ah the sequel. I know that for a lot of us, the sequel was created as a readers guilt thing….. you love the first book and plan to get to the next one RIGHT AWAY! Then, for some reason, we don’t pick it up so it haunts us from our shelves…. calling to us and asking WHY aren’t we paying attention to them! I’m being dramatic but this is what it feels like lol.
This weeks topic can be interpreted in a few ways. You could list ones you have but haven’t read. You could also list sequels that you’re anticipating. I listed mostly ones that are only my backlist with one at the end that I’m highly anticipating. Here are the top 5 sequels that I really need to get to soon:
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming topics in May – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
ARCHENEMIES by Marissa Meyer
I got this one for Christmas and I swore I was going to read it right away! Since it’s making this list – that obviously didn’t happen! I’ve added this book to my TBR a few times now and yet, it still sits unread. I think it’s the size. It’s not terribly long but – it just looks big and scary! I need to make this happen soon!
DRAGONFLY IN AMBER by Diana Gabaldon
This one I don’t feel too guilty about. Not yet anyway. I only finished the first book a couple months ago. This book is over 1000 pages I believe and it’s a commitment for sure! I’m waiting for the audiobook to become available so that I can bounce back and forth to make it feel a little shorter.
MORNING STAR by Pierce Brown
This one is one that I feel guilty about. This series feels like it’s been taking me forever to finish! I always wait so long in between these and it always takes me a while to get back into them. I know that if I wait a while it negatively impacts my reading experience….. but it’s still not pushing me to get to this any faster.
CHINA RICH GIRLFRIEND by Kevin Kwan
I want to get to this one so badly! The only thing holding me back is that I don’t have a copy of it yet. I liked the first book in the series so much that I can’t stop thinking about this one! It’s like a crazy soap opera….. nothing that I would normally enjoy but I fell in love! I can’t wait for this one…. soon!
DARKDAWN by Jay Kristoff
You had to know that this one was going to show up on the list! This one was originally set to come out in 2018. Then the publishing date was pushed back to the last quarter of 2019. So, technically, this was already supposed to have been in our hands! I don’t mind waiting for perfection though!! I’m so excited!!!
