Tuesday Top Ten

So as I just got this blog and I'm still trying to get my head around it, I thought I'd give this meme a go. It's from the broke and the bookish.

This week's theme is Top Ten Sequels I am dying to read.

  1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman - If I Stay was really beautiful and sad and poignant, so I'm slightly worried that this won't live up to it. It's from Adam's point of view, and I loved Adam so much in If I Stay, and Mia has left Adam in this book. I want to read it so badly but I'm worried about how much I'm going to cry.
  2. The Legacy by Gemma Malley - Okay, so this is the third in a trilogy, does that count? I'm going to say it does. The Declaration and The Resistance were really clever and interesting dystopic novels, and I'm curious to see how Gemma Malley finishes off the series.
  3. Rebel Angels by Libba Bray - Technically I'm still reading A Great and Terrible Beauty but it's amazing so far and I can't wait to read more.
  4. Extras by Scott Westerfield - Again, it's the fourth in the series. This one looks a bit different from the first three, not only because it follows a different protagonist but I enjoyed the first three Uglies books so this should be good. And for the record, the British cover of this book is terrifying.
  5. Ironside by Holly Black - I got Tithe from the library and really enjoed it, then I found Ironside as an ex-library copy which was being sold and it's been sitting on my shelf for about a year now. I think this is the sequel, or there may be one in between, I'm not 100% sure.
  6. Club Dead by Charlaine Harris - I got the first ten Sookie Stackhouse books for Christmas last year and then for some reason I stopped reading them after the second. I was enjoying them, too. Just other books distracted me.
  7. Betrayals by Lili St. Crow - I read Strange Angels when I was on holiday last year. I was ok, not brilliant but ok. It would be interesting to see if it gets any better.
  8. Day of the Predator by Alex Scarrow - I liked the first Time Riders book. It had an interesting premise and there were certain plot points I want to find out more about, particularly with Liam. And this one has dinosaurs :-)
  9. Petals in the Ashes by Mary Hooper - I liked At The Sign of the Sugared Plum and this one seems good too.
And I couldn't come up with a 10th :-).


  1. New Follower :)

    Where She Went should have featured in my list, I completely forgot.
    I need to get the Sookie Stackhouse series, I'm such a fan of the show.

    Check out my TTT and my current Giveaway

    Looking forwards to hearing back from you,

  2. I thought Where She Went was just about as awesome... hard to be exactly as good without the huge tragedy of If I Stay but the writing is superb! Hope you enjoy it when you get around to it.

  3. Some fantastic authors in your list. I love the Strange Angels series by Lilli St Crow and actually have Reckoning in my Top Ten Tuesday list.

    I'm also a Scott Westerfeld and Charlaine Harris fan.
