Oh, sequels. Sequels are both the joy and the bane of my existence. Joy because "OMG I GET TO READ ABOUT THESE CHARACTERS AGAIN!!". Bane because "WHY IS THE RELEASE DATE SO FAR AWAY WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY????". So yeah. Here are ten sequels that I'm dying to read.
1. Book 4 of the Throne of Glass series - Sarah J. Maas
Heir of Fire was the most amazing book of ever. And waiting until this time next year for the as-yet-untitled book 4 is going to make me cry millions of tears of frustration. This is why I like discovering series AFTER they end. Because there's no waiting.
2. Book 3 of The Lovegrove Legacy - Alyxandra Harvey
Whisper the Dead was absolutely brilliant and full of squee-tastic moments. And I can't wait to get my hands on book 3 and all the inevitable Penelope/Cedric squees that will come along with it.
3. Winter - Marissa Meyer
I devoured Cress in like 24 hours earlier this year and I cannot wait to see how Meyer ties up this series in book 4.
4. Manners & Mutiny - Gail Carriger
I basically just read Waistcoats & Weaponry. It hasn't even been two weeks since I finished it. And I'm already desperately hoping that the publication date of this one gets pushed up by almost a year because I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED IT.
5. Every Word - Ellie Marney
Okay, so this one's sort of cheating because I already have it on my Kindle. But I'm forcing myself to wait as long as is humanly possible. I devoured Every Breath in less than 24 hours and loved every single second of it. Seriously. One of the best books I've read this year. And knowing that book 3 doesn't come out until March, I feel like I need to wait a while before reading this one so that the gap between books isn't QUITE as insufferable.
6. Lair of Dreams - Libba Bray
I'm fairly certain this book is the bane of my existence. The publication date has been pushed back and pushed back and pushed back to the point where I'm not entirely convinced that it's ever actually going to be published. Seriously. It was originally meant to be out in March 2014. Then April. Then August. At the moment, it's early April 2015. I'll believe it when I see it.
7. The Boy Most Likely To - Huntley Fitzpatrick
I ADORED My Life Next Door, and I desperately want to read the sequel. Desperately. Give it to me now, dammit!! *grabby hands*
8. Breaking the Rules - Katie McGarry
Three more weeks. THREE MORE WEEKS. I'm insanely excited about this book, even though we know that Noah and Echo get their happy ending from other books in the series. Don't care. Want.
9. Mr. Kiss and Tell - Rob Thomas
Okay, I LOVED the Veronica Mars novel that came out earlier this year. It was really fun to see one of my favourite characters on the page, and follow on from the events of the Veronica Mars movie. So I'm pretty excited about this one.
10. Hidden Huntress - Danielle L. Jensen
I really enjoyed Stolen Songbird, though I had some niggling questions about the world building. So I'm looking forward to the sequel so that I can find out what happens next and hopefully get a few of those pesky questions answered!
What's on your list?
