Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
This week’s theme is Standalone Books That Need a Sequel. Well, I’m not doing that. Mostly, anyway. Most of the books I read already have a series, I don’t do a lot of standalones. So, I’m going to mix that theme with books I am waiting for the sequel of! Welcome to my mixed topic of Sequels I Want or am Waiting for.
Standalones I Want a Sequel to
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody – This was my first read from Amanda Foody and I really loved it! It was moody, atmospheric, and felt very unique. All of the plot lines were all tied up nice and tidy at the end but I would still love another book from this world.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer – Of course, in theory, we all know what happens next after Heartless. The Queen of Hearts reigns, eventually Alice comes, etc etc. However, it would still be fun to read about it in the same voice and cadence that Meyer set up in Heartless. I think it would give the story a fresh tone.
Invictus by Ryan Graudin – I would absolutely love to go back into this world and continue having adventures with the crew of Invictus. Plundering history, danger, love, perilous peril, I wouldn’t be able to put it down. I know I bring this book up all of the time but I really think it is that fantastic.
Upcoming Sequels I can’t Wait to Read
A Heart so Fierce and Broken (A Curse so Dark and Lonely #2) by Brigid Kemmerer – As far as I can find there isn’t even an official description yet for the sequel to A Cruse so Dark and Lonely but I don’t even care, I’m excited for it anyway. I fell head over heels for this story and can’t wait to get back into this world as soon as possible. January 28, 2020
Finale (Caraval #3) by Stephanie Garber – I hated that first book of this trilogy, absolutely adored the second, now am waiting impatiently for the third to see how this whole things ties up. I’m hoping it will be another fantastic read the way Legendary was. May 7, 2019
Rage (Stormheart #2) by Cora Carmack – I have been waiting for this book since June of 2017. I know, I know, that isn’t much wait if you’re, say, a GRRM fan but I loved Roar so much that I wanted to read Rage immediately. Unfortunately, the author has had some medical concerns which has delayed this publication. Of course, I wish her well and hope that she is able to cope with her illness and thrive. In the meantime, I will wait patiently for this book. The publication has been pushed back twice now and I will snatch it up so soon as I am able. August 27, 2019
That is it for this Top Ten Tuesday! Are there any upcoming sequels that you can’t wait to read?
