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). It’s a perfect one for me because I love reading series – I always feel like I’m meeting old friends when I dive back into their story. A note: I’m writing this post in advance so I *might* already own one or two of these by the time it’s published, but I’m excited about them all the same!

  1. Doors of Stone (Kingkiller Chronicle #3) by Patrick Rothfuss – this one doesn’t even have a cover yet, so I’m guessing I’ll be waiting for a while…
  2. The Thorn of Emberlain (The Gentleman Bastards Sequence #4) by Scott Lynch – ditto. I suppose this one will appear a bit earlier but still… A lot of waiting to do!sequels1
  3. Say Yes to the Marquess (Castles Ever After #2) by Tessa Dare – I just love her books. I really do.
  4. Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover (Rules of Scoundrels #4) by Sarah MacLean – this is one of my favourite historical romance series! Can’t wait for the conclusion!
  5. Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly #3) by Susan Dennard – I really like this series; you can also read my reviews of book one and book two.
  6. Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J Maas – this one I just have to get. My sentiments are due to the fact that the previous two parts were such fast reads and that half the blogosphere is in raptures over this one.sequels2
  7. The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab – I really liked The Archived (my review) and I know this one is already published, but I’m waiting for the paperback. Sorry. :(
  8. The Mime Order (The Bone Season #2) by Samantha Shannon – I read and reviewed the first part and I found it really interesting. I want to see what she’ll do in part 2; the fact that there are to be seven parts in this series is… intriguing!
  9. Half Wild (Half Life Trilogy #2) by Sally Green – part one (my review) was one of those interesting, unexpected reads of 2014 so I’m very curious to see where the story goes next!
  10. Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman – this long awaited sequel is definitely one of my most anticipated 2015 reads! I’ll have to re-read Seraphina, probably, because it’s been a long time since I’ve read it.

These are the sequels I can’t wait to read. What are yours? 

Do you have any good series recommendations? I’m always looking for new ones to start! 

  • I’m so excited about the 4th Rules of Scoundrels book – such a great series! I forgot to put that on my list…here’s mine:

    • Kaja

      Yes, I love Sarah MacLean, I’ve preordered the book and I can’t wait for it to arrive :)
      Thanks for the comment!

  • I haven’t really read any of these books but they all look fantastic. Thanks for adding some titles to my TBR pile. Great list! :)

    • Kaja

      Hi, Kayla, thanks for stopping by :)
      You should definitely give these a try, the series are great!

  • I’m excited for Shadow Scale and The Unbound too! I recently reread Seraphina and loved it even more the second time around! I cannot wait to see where that story is going.

    • Kaja

      I’ve been seeing Shadow Scale on many lists today – no wonder, Seraphina is a great book! :) Thanks for stopping by, Julie!

  • The Unbound was SOoOoO good! i hope you get your hands on it soon. It is worth the wait :) I hope she will write that 3rd book because I would love a series of Wes and Mac :) :)

    • Kaja

      Ohh, I have high hopes for The Unbound! I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Schwab (Vicious, The Archived, The Near Witch), and I can’t wait for her next one! But publishing works in mysterious ways, so I really hope she gets the chance to do the third book!

  • Great list. :) The Bone Season and Half Bad are both on my TBR – I need to read them soon!

    • Kaja

      Oh, you should! I’ve actually re-read The Bone Season already and it’s great even the second time around – and Half Bad was one of those pleasant surprises of 2014.
      Thanks for the comment! :)

  • I need Half Bad right now! Have you read the prequel novella Half Lies yet? It’s about Gabriel and his sister and is rather good!

      Yes, I’ve come across the fact that there’s a novella only yesterday, so I have to get it soon! I’m not a huge fan of novellas, so I’m not as excited about it as I am about the actual sequel, but I’ll probably read it anyway! :)
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  • It is always a good feeling to revisit a favorite world or favorite characters. I haven’t read the Rothfuss books yet…

    • Kaja

      Oh, you definitely should! He’s all kinds of awesome. The only bad thing is waiting for him to write this third (and last!) book of the series. And yes, I love series for that exact reason! :)
