Today's topic is: top ten sequels I can't wait to read
As I was looking through my TBR to compile this list, I realized that I'm really not reading that many series right now. I do have a few I'm excited for, but I seem to be drawn to stand-alones more and more lately. So I'm splitting this list in two: 5 sequels I can't wait for, and 5 series starters I'm excited to read.
5 sequels I can't wait to read
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss #3)
I don't really consider these books a series, but since this is being billed as book #3, I'm going to count it. Stephanie Perkins is amazing. This book is at the tippy-top of my most anticipated books of 2014.
Split Second by Kasie West (Pivot Point #2)
I loved Pivot Point and cannot wait to find out what happens next.
Perfect Lies by Kiersten White (Mind Games #2)
Mind Games was one of the more polarizing reads this year. People loved it or hated it. I fall into the former's camp. I thought it was awesome and cannot wait for more.
Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray (The Diviners #2)
I really enjoyed The Diviners, who followers a teen in the 20s who can "read" objects. I hate this redesign of the covers though. It's horrible and really doesn't fit the series at all.
Unhinged by A.G. Howard (Splintered #2)
Splintered was an interesting reimagining of Wonderland, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm excited to dive back into darker world, but I freaking hate this cover. I hate it.
5 series starters I can't wait to read
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
I'm excited to dive into this story of two teens who are the only survivors of a space ship crash. Plus, that cover. Gah! Serious cover love.
Uninvited by Sophe Jordan
A teen girl becomes ostraized when her genetic test comes back showing that she is predisposed to become a killer.
Hexed by Michelle Krys
A popular cheerleader whose mom runs an occult shop gets wrapped up in the war between witches and sorcerers.
Alienated by Melissa Landers
Handpicked to host the first alien exchange student, a teen girl finds herself falling in love. Again, serious cover love. I love whoever is in charge of cover design over at Disney Hyperion.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab
This book came out last January and its sequel comes out this January. I've been meaning to read this for months, and have even checked it out from the library a couple of times. After finally finishing Vicious this last week, I can tell you that this book has gotten a huge bump up my TBR. I sometimes like reading the first book (or second book) close to the (next) sequel's release date so I don't have as long to wait.
So those are the sequels and series starters I cannot wait to get my hands on. What books made your list? Link me up!
