Top Ten Tuesday, a booky blog event hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week a book-related topic is suggested, and this week’s is the top ten five(!) sequels I can’t wait to get!
I love sequels. It’s just like getting more of a book that you love after you think it’s all over. Several of my choices are yet to have details announced beyond that they will exist but this makes me excited enough!
- As yet unnamed sequel to The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger (Release date: TBA)
Audrey Niffenegger announced on her blog that she was in the process of writing a sequel to The Time Traveler’s Wife about Alba and her inherited abilities. Lord can I not wait for this book. I’ve mentioned several thousand times how much I adore the first book, and my love affair will only continue when the sequel is released. I am all over this!
- Lady of the Eternal City – Kate Quinn (Release Date: March 2015)
Kate Quinn’s Mistress of Rome was an unbelievable corker of a book and she followed it up with another two awesome historical dramas, Daughters of Rome and Empress of Rome. Her next installment will follow along the rest of Vix and Sabina’s story, started in Empress. Their story winds perfectly in with real historical events and I need to know what happens next! If anyone has any interest in historical fiction, get on these books. They’re amazing.
- The Fever Code – James Dashner (Release date: 2016)
All the way through The Maze Runner books I wanted to know what led up to the events in the first book. Even though I understood Thomas’ motivations in not choosing to get his memories back I was frustrated. I wanted to see the build-up of the Gladers and who Thomas and Teresa were before, what made them think the trials they put kids through in the maze were worth the results. This will hopefully be that book, and I’m so happy it’s being written! It will answer the desperate questions I had and any excuse not to have to leave this world behind is good with me!
- The Winds of Winter – George R.R. Martin (Release Date: TBA)
I haven’t gotten far enough through this series to be ready to read this one yet, but I can see that point coming up in my future and so I already can’t wait for this one! Plus I have friends that might stop going on and spoiling me about these books if they have the next one to read! Ha.
- The Seeker – Stephenie Meyer (Release Date: TBA)
I was torn about whether to add this one in or not because I didn’t want to be judged on it, but then I decided to be completely honest. I really enjoyed The Host. I know, I know, Stephenie Meyer isn’t exactly rated as an author (I’m trying to be polite!) but I actually liked the universe that she created in the first book (sci-fi and sort of post-apocalyptic, mind control and aliens? yes please) and I’m really interested to see where she takes it to.
Plus a love triangle with only two bodies? Still a better love story than Twilight!
