Top Ten Tuesdays (1) : Sequels I Need To Read

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Hi guys!

I hope your week is going well. I thought I'd participate in my first ever Top Ten Tuesday on this blog. I love making book lists, so I think this will be fun. Today's topic is actually Standalone Books That Need a Sequel. I tend to never want sequels to standalone books. I prefer standalone novels and I wish more YA fantasy novels were standalones. So I decided to take a twist to today's topic and instead share a list of books whose sequels I desperately need to read! My hope is that writing this list down will force me to pick up at least a few of these books!
The Wicked King by Holly Black
The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1) The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air, #2)

I was pleasantly surprised by The Cruel Prince last year and I was definitely sucked into the hype like everyone else. I was very much anticipating The Wicked King, as a result, but for some reason (perhaps the overwhelming hype), I have yet to pick up The Wicked King. I need to ASAP though ...
All Aces by Ellie Marney
All the Little Bones (Circus Hearts, #1) All Fall Down (Circus Hearts, #2) All Aces (Circus Hearts, #3)

I devoured the first two books in the Circus Hearts books, but when All Aces released, I was on a blog hiatus and it slipped my mind. I've got to buy myself a copy of All Aces ASAP!
Splendor and Spark by Mary Taranta
Shimmer and Burn (Shimmer and Burn, #1) Splendor and Spark (Shimmer and Burn, #2)

To be honest, I don't remember a lot about Shimmer and Burn. I know I liked it from my Goodreads rating. Splendor and Spark released without much buzz. It makes me sad when not all books get the same buzz from publishers, but that's a story for another day. I've requested copies from the library, so hopefully, they get these books!
On Thin Ice by Julie Cross
Off the Ice (Juniper Falls, #1) Breaking the Ice (Juniper Falls, #2) On Thin Ice (Juniper Falls #3)

Ok, so this one isn't so bad because On Thin Ice just came out a few weeks ago. I've got to get my butt in gear and read it before I forget though!
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1) Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2) Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices #3)

Lady Midnight was a book that I was obsessed with when I read it. I didn't pick up Lord of Shadows when it released because I knew the cliffhanger would destroy me. I waited for Queen of Air and Darkness. It's been a while since Queen of Air and Darkness released and I still have yet to read Lord of Shadows ... In my defense, these books are monstrous in size!!
The Knowing by Sharon Cameron
The Forgetting (The Forgetting, #1) The Knowing (The Forgetting, #2)

The Forgetting was a very unique YA dystopia. I loved it! I completely forgot about (pun not intended) The Knowing. I still really want to read it though!
Untouchable by Talia Hibbert
A Girl Like Her (Ravenswood, #1) Untouchable (Ravenswood #2)

Talia is a newly discovered author for me. I liked A Girl Like Her a lot and need to pick up Untouchable and more of her backlist soon!
Darkest Night by Megan Erickson 
Zero Hour (Wired & Dangerous, #1) Darkest Night (Wired & Dangerous, #2)

*sigh* So, I know some people are unhappy with Megan Erickson regarding recent events, but I don't know that I hold her responsible for what happened. She is still an author whose writing I enjoy and I really liked Zero Hour. I'll be picking up Darkest Night when I get the chance.
Make Me Fall by Sara Rider
Real Kind of Love (Books & Brews, #1) Make Me Fall (Books & Brews, #2)

I thought Real Kind of Love was super cute when I read it last year! I haven't had a chance to read Make Me Fall yet, but it's on my list. Look at that cute cover!
Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan
Long Shot (Hoops, #1) Block Shot (Hoops, #2)

Ari introduced me to Long Shot and Kennedy Ryan and I enjoyed the book, though I admit that it wasn't the easiest subject matter. I have to check out Block Shot and the next book in the series because that one has my favorite trope, single dad hero!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and Bookish and is hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.
