Top 10 Sequels I'm Still Dying to Read



It's Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is... 
WHATEVER WE WANT! So I'm picking:

Top 10 Sequels I'm Still Dying to Read

As in, I loved Book 1. I can't wait to read Book 2. But I just have so many books to read, I haven't had a chance to get to these yet. I feel just so -- ahh! -- stalled, dying to find out what happens next in each of these series. Soon!



Any suggestions on where to start?

  1. I still need to read Fury of the Phoenix too! I read Desires of the Dead and didn't like it as much as the Body Finder but it is still worth reading. I think it sets it up for a very interesting book three!

  2. I like those extra Harry Potter books! I've only read a History of Quidditch.

  3. Oh, the sequels to The Forest of Hands and Teeth were good! Not true sequels since others are the main characters but still very creepy and interesting.

    I think you made a good choice (okay, maybe not consciously ;) ) waiting to read Torment until Passion is out. I think reading those two together might be better than Torment on its own!

  4. I can't wait to read Wolfsbane, either! Desires of the Dead was good, you have got to love her covers, too :0)

  5. Crescendo was one of those sequels that is actually better than the original. (Of course, I barely made it through Hush, Hush, so that was a nice surprise.) And I agree that if you read Torment together with Passion as if it were one book you will probably like both of them better. As for me, I am dying for the sequel to Beautiful Darkness, I love those books, and only a few weeks left!

  6. I really enjoyed crescendo and agree with the millward famiky that it was better then the original. Also agree that if you read Torment and Passion together things would make more since.

  7. I'm with you. First book on the list is Desires of the Dead.

  8. I loved Beedle the Bard. You should start there because it takes literally no time at all to get through. :)

  9. I'd do Beedle the Bard, that'll take about and hour or so to read, then Wolfsbane.

  10. This is an interesting topic and a great list. I totally agree with the Harry Potter one. I haven't read ANY Harry Potter extra books. :( Also, Torment! That's very high on my TBR list. :)

    My Top Ten :)

  11. I wouldn't possibly know how to prioritize some of these. Return to Paradise is a super quick read so if you're looking to feel accomplished right off the bat pick that one up. Beautiful Darkness was awesome but maybe wait a few weeks on that and read it & the third back to back? Loved Carrie Ryan's book and Wolfsbane is fantastical too!

  13. The Tales of Beedle the Bard will take you 30 minutes max to read - so start with that :)

  14. Kind of unrelated, but all those covers look so alluring. Even though I haven't read some of the prequels, I still want to read these books! haha

    Happy Tuesday!

  15. to be honest half of these are series I really meant to start! I feel like for every book I read there are 10 more that pop up on the TBR, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Desires of the Dead! Start there. Then follow up with Crescendo :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I haven't read the Tales of the Beetle Bard yet! I have it but I haven't gotten to it yet. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The Dark and Hollow Places is one of my all time favorite final books. It's awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I need to read Nightshade. So many books TBR.
    My suggestion would be to go with whichever book continues the story you are most in need of getting a fix from. I would probably pick Crescendo.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Beedle the Bard, of course, and The Dark and Hollow Places! So much <3 for that book, ended the series amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Dark and Hollow Places is the thrid book. The first is of course The Forest of Hands and Teeth, the The Dead Tossed waves, and then The Dark and Hollow Places. Just didn't want you to get confused because the series is great!

  22. New follower :)

    I'm dying to read Wolfsbane as well!

    Torment was ok, but Passion is really good so I recommend it!

  23. Regrettably, I was never quite sold on the Nightshade book, so I'm not too interested in the sequel. I only have room for so many paranormal novels in my heart, and for what it is, I think Jennifer Lynn Barnes' Raised by Wolves is a slightly better book. Though Nightshade was quite striking in its own ways, all that romance was a bit much for me.

  24. I LOVE the tales of Beedle the Bard. Its dark, adorable, funny, and just generally amazing all at once.

  25. Nice selection! Sadly, as a big Harry Potter fan, I too have yet to read Tales of Beedle the Bard... it's been sitting on my shelf, so I really have no excuse...
    Is Torment the sequel to Fallen? Looks like the same style of book cover!

    Here's my Top 10!

  26. I love what you did with the free for all this week! I HATEEE when I love a book and have to wait forever and ever for the sequel. I'm currently anxiously awaiting CROSSED and PANDEMONIUM. Those are the top two sequels I'm dying to read!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I want to read Torment and the Tales of Beetle and Bard too!
    I've read crescendo. ITS AMAZINGG! Can't wait for the tempest:)

  28. I second most of these! The Dark and Hollow Places was my fav of the three. If you like audiobooks it's a great one!
