Top Ten Tuesday – Anticipated Sequels

Posted November 18, 2014 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 17 Comments

I have a whole stack of ongoing series books I still need to read but what fun is that. My list is dedicated to my top five anticipated sequels that are hopefully releasing soon.

The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire #6) by George R.R. Martin
Will this come out in 2015? Nobody but George knows. I can only hope so seeing as I’m currently on book 5 and am not ready to confront the fact that there won’t be anything new to read afterwards.

The City of Mirrors (The Passage #3) by Justin Cronin
These books had been coming out twice a year but this finale keeps getting its pub date changed. I’m so anxious for this finale, I can only hope it’s as superb as the first installment was.

Love Lies Beneath by Ellen Hopkins
I know next to nothing about this one, only that it’s her next adult novel in prose. Which is plenty enough for me. This one is due out Summer 2015.

 Rewind (Newsflesh #4) by Mira Grant
If there’s something other than more Harry Potter that I wish most for it’s more Newsflesh. My dreams have come true. But I see the release date has been changed to 2016. *silent sobbing*

Fables, Vol. 21 (Fables #21) by Bill Willingham
This has become some a beloved series of mine and we’re quickly coming to #22 which  marks the end! It breaks my heart as I hate to see it go, but I trust Bill to give us a spectacular finale at least.

By my choices, you will no doubt see how far behind I am in some series. Eek! This is totally my M.O. I love starting new series, but then I back way off for fear of finishing them or having to wait for the next installment – especially if I love them.

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
I recently read Maze Runner for the very first time, so I’m not terribly far behind on this series. I am always down for some post-apocalyptic, dystopian society with a random teenage hero. Sign me up.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I thoroughly enjoyed Cinder and really like modern or retellings of fairy tales. The only reason I’ve held back on continuing this series is because I didn’t rave over The Queen’s Army and I was worried of being disappointed. Someday soon, I’ll “buck up buttercup” and continue with this series.

Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale
Love, love, love Austenland! I didn’t even know there was a sequel until a few months ago, so I am beyond excited to dig in as soon as I can get my hands on this book.

Serenity: Better Days by Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews & Will Conrad
Anything that makes me think of Nathan Fillion is A-OK by me. Excuse me while I ogle this picture…for science.

Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer
I have been holding off on reading this for ages, because after I’m finished there will be nothing left for me to read by Stephenie Meyer. No more Forks, no more Jacob and Edward, no more stupid Bella. As a Twihard, it kind of freaks me out that I will be officially done.

  1. Oh my goodness, you’re a brave soul to be nearly caught up with George R. R. Martin! I’m (somewhat) deliberately behind so I don’t have to stare into the abyss of not knowing when the next book will be completed.

    And Scarlet is on my TBR as well. I’ve been enjoying the series so far but we’ll see what happens!

  2. Ok, first I need to scream for a minute because WHAT! MIDNIGHT SUN is a thing again?? When did this happen?? I remember when she pulled the plug on it, that was such a sad day. Can you tell I’m a Twihard too??;-) And yes to anything Nathan Fillion! I also didn’t know there was going to be another Passage book. See how much I learned here today?

  3. Oh, the Winds of Winter. Definitely on my list too, it is just taking so long. I’ve only read the first book of The Passage series (trilogy?) but I am lakcing the courage to pick up the next one. They are sooo long! Scarlet is really good too.

    Great list!

  4. Great choices! I didn’t realize that there’d be another Newsflesh book — I thought it was just a trilogy (which I haven’t started yet… silly me). I wish we didn’t have to wait for The Winds of Winter, but I’m not holding my breath for a 2015 release. A big HECK YEAH for Fables and Serenity (and thank you for making my day brighter with a picture of Captain Mal!)
