Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Best/Worst Sequels <—– I’m changing my topic! See below!
Here’s the PROBLEM, as you all should now by now, I SUCK AT SERIES. I give you my EMBARRASSING number of series I still am in the middle of and a more embarrassing number of series I HAVE finished in that post. So embarrassing I don’t want to admit it again. haha.
Rather, this week, I’m going to look at my list of unfinished series and do my Top Ten Sequels I Still Haven’t Read (But Definitely Plan To). This isn’t a case of I didn’t finish because I don’t want to keep going with the series.
1. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2): Ok, I JUST read the first HP book last month so I can get some slack for this one, yes?
2. Frostbite ( Vampire Academy #2): Again, newbie to this series within the last couple of months. I sorta want to just binge read it but alas review books and library books.
3. Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo (Grisha #2): I really loved Shadow & Bone and I should have picked this up immediately with the huge BANG of an ending it had.
4. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (Lunar Chronicles #2): Everyone says this one is even BETTER than Cinder!
5. It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han (Summer series #2): I read The Summer I Turned Pretty forever ago but I don’t know WHY I haven’t picked this one up. I love me a good contemporary series.
6. The Crown Of Embers by Rae Carson (Fire & Thorns #2): GAH I read The Girl of Fire & Thorns when I was on my honeymoon and I remember DYING to get to this one as soon as I got home and then I got so busy with being a newlywed that I never did. BAD JAMIE.
7. Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready (Shade #2): I really don’t read a ton of paranormal but I LOOOOOVED Shade SO MUCH. Why have I not picked up Shift!!?
8. The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #2): I had complicated feelings about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I read it faster than I read most books because I could NOT put it down but I got done and was like IDK HOW I FEEEEEL? It’s such a mindf*ck that I HAVE to finish it.
9. The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson (Millenium #2): I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo wayy before I started blogging and still, even after owning this one, have not read it. I’m afraid I won’t remember anything could be important to book 2. Is there a huge overlap??
10. City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments #2): I just started this series right before the movie came out and while I didn’t LOVE it I do plan on finishing.
So tell me…which one of these must I ABSOLUTELY pick up first?? Which sequels have you still not read??
