TTT - Top ten sequels I can't wait to get my hands on
Time to link up with the Broke and the Bookish again!
It's Cup Day in Melbourne today, which means a public holiday for a three minute horse race. I spent a good chunk of the afternoon at a family barbeque, eating far too much and paying very little attention to the races. WHEEEEEEEEE.
ANYWAY. Let's get on to the top ten sequels I'm fangirling like a lunatic over:
1. Curtsies and Conspiracies - Gail Carriger
I literally JUST got an email from Amazon saying that my Kindle edition is now available to download. However, I'm currently hoarding e-books (including this and Alligient) for my trip to New Zealand at the end of the month, so I won't be reading it for a couple of weeks yet. Womp womp.
2. Fairwil - Alysia Gray Painter
OH MY GOD, ALYSIA. YOU HAVE TO WRITE FASTER BECAUSE I WANT THIS BOOK, LIKE, YESTERDAY. I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DIVING BOARD RELATED THINGS. Kthxbai <3
3. Cress - Marissa Meyer
I've loved both Cinder and Scarlet, so I'm really looking forward to this one.
4. Raising Steam - Terry Pratchett
Another one that comes out this week, and another one that I probably won't be reading for a little while. If the price is right, I might buy it at the airport because I *have* to have Discworld books in physical form. The covers are too brilliant not to!
5. Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins
Oh my goodness, I need this book immediately, because Perkins writes such completely adorable books. I only hope it lives up to the fabulousness of its predecessors.
6. Clariel - Garth Nix
THERE'S A NEW ABHORSEN BOOK COMING OUT OH MY GOD I AM SO EXCITED YOU HAVE NO IDEA. One of my friends in high school and I were OBSESSED with Sabriel, and I've loved both Lirael and Abhorsen, so I can't WAIT for this one.
7. Lair of Dreams - Libba Bray
The Diviners was long, but fabulous. And I can't wait to see where Bray takes the series next!
8. The Infinite Sea - Rick Yancey
If you haven't read The Fifth Wave, you really really should. Because it was incredible. Obviously, I'm excited about the sequel.
9. Dreams of Gods and Monsters - Laini Taylor
I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone. While I didn't enjoy Days of Blood and Starlight *quite* as much (and don't ask me why - apparently I finished it, wrote "Review to follow" on Goodreads, and then never actually wrote the review. That was in March. Whoops??), I'm still really intrigued to find out what happens next.
10. Sisters' Fate - Jessica Spotswood
I finished the second book in this series - Star Cursed - only a week or so ago, and it was fabulous. After that ending though? I NEED THE THIRD BOOK IMMEDIATELY OMG I CAN'T EVEN.
What sequels are you jumping up and down with excitement over? (Also, what does it say about me that so many of these books are YA?!)
