The Top Ten Sequels I am Dying to Read
While all of these are not sequels, they may be part of a trilogy or a companion novel. I even have some of them already, but I'm saving them. For what? I'm not too sure.
1. Dust and Decay by Jonathan Maberry - this is one of my most anticipated books of 2011! I loved Rot and Ruin so much and I want to know what happens to The Lost Girl. Oh and yes, I STILL want my own zombie card!
2. Perfect by Ellen Hopkins - companion novel to Impulse - Hopkins is one of my favorite authors and Impulse is my favorite book written by her, so its only natural that I am craving to read the companion novel Perfect which comes out next week.
3. Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready - I wasn't even going to read this series, but with all of the twitter chatter from Ginger at GReads! and Jen at Makeshift Bookmark saying how much they loved it, I just to read it. SO GLAD I DID!
4. Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I loved If I Stay and want to know what happens to Mia and Adam. Yes, this is one on my bookshelf that I am "saving".
5. Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles - The Fuentes brothers are hot! Oh to be 16 again! After I finished Perfect Chemistry, this book immediately went on my wish list. I waited for the paperback release (so all of my binding would match) and I just received it in the mail on Saturday, so I will be reading it very soon!
6. Cupcake by Rachel Cohn (book 3 of Cyd Charisse series) This book has been out for a while and it is sitting on my bookshelf right now. I just haven't read it yet because I don't want the story to end. I fell in love the characters and their story and I've convinced myself that by not reading it, their story won't end. This might not make a lot of sense to anyone else, but it does to me.
7. Arise by Tara Hudson (book 2) - so I'm starting to like books about ghosts. What's up with that?
8. Smoke by Ellen Hopkins - seriously this book doesn't even come out for 2 years, and who knows if it Hopkins had even finished writing it. But she spoke about a companion novel to Burned and so I will be waiting for it (for quite a while)
9. Underdog by Markus Zusak - I read Fighting Ruben Wolfe (book 2) and Getting the Girl (book 3), but I was unaware that there was a book 1 until I found out that these books were being re-released in a bind-up. So now I want to read how the story of the Wolfe brothers began.
And I can't believe I'm admitting this:
10. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer - ok hold up,wait a minute, I am not seriously dying to re-read this one, but I think I may want to read it again. The last time I read this was back in 2008, while traveling and the day before I was starting a new job. I rushed through it like the wind because I had to finish it quickly before I came across any spoilers online. After reading it and thinking about it, I probably shouldn't have been so hasty because I just didn't love it. At all. It made me a bit mad, but I thought that I knew where Meyer was coming from and just accepted it. Probably just a bit too easily. So I want to re-read this - maybe not all at once (but before the movie comes out), to see if my opinion has changed.
