Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On

This week's topic is...

Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On

Oh boy. There are a TON of sequels that I am DYING to read. And as you will see, a few upcoming sequels made my list in which I haven't even read the previous book in the series yet, so I have some catching up to do. Here is a small sampling of sequels I am waiting to get my hands on:
Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3) by Laini Taylor
Knowing Laini Taylor, she no doubt has a totally epic conclusion planned for this unbelievably imaginative series.

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins
This sequel has been 3 years in the making. But I am happy to wait however long it takes for a new Stephanie Perkins book!

Sunrise (Ashfall #3) by Mike Mullin
Oh man, I've come to care so much for Alex and Darla over the course of this series and I am absolutely invested in what happens next (hopefully a happy ending!)!

The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab
The Archived was one of the most creative books I've ever read. So of course I'm anxious to get my hands on the sequel!

Raging Star (Dust Lands #3) by Moira Young
Still need to read Rebel Heart (Dust Lands #2)! But I recall Blood Red Road (Dust Lands #1) was a phenomenally awesome book.

Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
Still need to read Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2)! But if my love for Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) was anything to go by, I am sure I will love them both.

No Covers Yet:
Ruin and Rising (The Grisha #3) by Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo thrilled and amazed with the first two books in the series, so I think it's promising to expect great things from this finale.

The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) by Rick Yancey
This series has great potential and Rick Yancey is an amazing writer so I really can't wait to see where this series goes.

Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by R.L. LaFevers
Still need to read Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2)! I still frequently think about Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) though because it was THAT good.

City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare
Still need to read City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5)! I can't say I was a big supporter of this trilogy turning into a six-book series. But I will follow it through to the end because I adore the characters and I am curious to see what'll happen next.


  1. Isla and Sunrise made my list this week too!! I feel like I've been waiting FOREVER for that Isla book though. And I still need to read the 2nd Ashfall book... but I loved the first one so much that I KNOW I'll be dying for the last one as soon as I'm done. Cool list :)

    My TTT

  2. I can't wait for Cress. I adore the cover so much. Great list!

  3. I'm not a fan of TMI being turned into a series either :-/ (and just wait til you get to the 5th book. I mean REALLY?!?), but I am DETERMINED to finish the damn series!

  4. Go read Scarlet soon! Cress is great too. I can't wait for Ruin & Rising (need more Sturmhond) and Mortal heart <3

  5. SO MUCH YES to this list! I'm DYING for the next Laini Taylor book. It's my most anticipated read of 2014, I think.

  6. CRESS!! I am so excited for Cress I don't think I can hold it in. I haven't read any of the Anna and the French Kiss books so I need to read those soon! And City of Heavenly Fire!! I'm curious to see how fire can be heavenly but still, very exciting. Awesome list! :)

  7. I was lucky enough to get my grubby paws all over Cress, and I am SO excited to start it soon! Plus, you know how I feel about the Dustlands series. GOLD. Lovely picks, Aylee! :)

  8. I can't wait for Mortal Heart either! Those books were so good :)

  9. So many brilliant choices! Looking forward to so many of these books too.

    My TTT :)

  10. Ah! After being away for so long I am so excited to come back and see how different your blog looks. It looks great Aylee! I can't wait to get my hands on Sunrise and Cress as well. Those are two of my favourite series that never seem to disappoint.

  11. I really need to read Scarlet. Everyone is all team Cress and I still need to read book two.

    My TTT List

  12. Ahhhh Dreams of Gods & Monsters!! ♥ I couldn't agree more with that as your first choice, I SO NEED that book in my life as well :D I picture myself reading DoG&M and then jumping straight into and entire series re-read...Laini's trilogy deserves that I think :) although, I may just drown in feels LOL Oh and I still need to read Ashen Winter but YES to Sunrise - what an addictive and incredible ride that is/will be! Same goes for Cress, I still need to read Scarlet but man, I love the world and characters Meyer's created so far!

    Dustlands and the Archived are two HIGHLY anticipated series to get into for me...and while I have gripped about The Mortal Instruments on many accounts, I still did get a bit addicted somewhere in there so I need to know how it will all end! Brilliant TTT picks Aylee ♥

  13. Mortal Heart and The Infinite Sea are very high on my list too. I simply must learn Annith's story, it has so much potential. I have a feeling it could be the best of the three, and that's saying a lot after Sybella. Oh, and we need to learn the end of Saba's story too, and soon! I'm so excited!
    Great picks, Aylee.

  14. nice list! I didn't do the topic this week because I'm horrible at keeping up with series. However, though I still need to read Lola's story, I am excited about Isla and the Happily Ever After. Also, I need to read The Archived but it's on my list so I hope I can get to it in time for the sequel.

  15. Great list! I'm still dying to read The Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Archived and The Lunar Chronicles, just haven't gotten to them yet. My TTT.

  16. OMG YES! to Ruin & Rising and CoHF!!! I am *too* excited for those books! I still need to read LOLA (I'm waiting for the UK release now which will be some point next year) but I am excited for everyone who has waited forever to read ISLA!

    Great choices :)

  17. RAGING STAR. I NEEEEEED IT! Btw, I love that cover =)

    Awesome list!

  18. I'm actually waiting for Isla too but it's taking for freaking ever! I went online the other day to buy it for my friend 'cause last time I checked was coming around her birthday and lo and behold, it was moved to next year :(
    it's just sad.

  19. I was excited for Isla as well. But I don't really understand why it's taking so long. So I've basically stopped waiting for it. I'm excited for you to read Scarlet, and find out what you think. And I am still waiting for my copy of Archived to show up at the library- someday.

    Great list!

  20. Ok, literally every single book on your list is on my "read as soon as they come out!" list in my TBR pile. It's hard to believe how many quality series I'm in the middle of right now, but I guess that's a good thing, right? There's always a new series book coming out each week it seems. Great list!

  21. Dreams of Gods & Monsters!! That would be my #1 pick but also Isla and Mortal Heart.

    Great picks!

  22. I adore the characters in The Mortal Instruments too and just want to see how it all ends now. I also can't wait to get my hands on Dreams of Gods & Monsters, Isla and the Happily Ever After and Ruin and Rising! Just thinking about those three has me giddy with excitement. Ahhh books. :D

  24. Daughter of Smoke and Bone series is probably the one I'm looking the utmost forward to!!! I need to catch up on some of those others, especially Scarlet! I've only reader Cinder so far. I need to get my but in gear! I'd also like to read The Dustlands series sooner than later.
