Top Ten Tuesday #2: Sequels I Can’t Wait To Get My Hands On

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish, and this week’s topic is: Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait to Get My Hands On!Here we go (in no particular order)!

1. Untitled (Study #4) by Maria V. Snyder
This book will probably released next year around this time, but the return of Yelena, Valek & other amazing side characters, Ixia and Sitia – I’m literally nervous with anticipation!

2. Untitled (Scarlett #3) by Maureen Johnson
Another book I will probably have to wait years to come out – but after Scarlett Fever, how can I not?!

Frost Burned3. Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs – mass market paperback release date Jan 28th 2014
I know FB is already out, but since the hardcover is so expensive, I’m waiting for the mass market paperback release! I finished River Marked last week and I just want more of Mercy and Adam and their pack. :)

4. Bitter Blood (The Morganville Vampires #13) by Rachel CaineBitter Blood
Again, this book has been on the market for a year now, but I’m waiting for the paperback release of the last book in the series, Daylighters,  so I can read all three of them in one swoop. A good thing that these books are released every half-year!
After the draug-infestation and the defeat thereof, I’m curious to see how Morganville has changed because of those events.

Princess of the Silver Woods5. Princess of Silver Woods (Princess #3) by Jessica Day George
I love Princess of the Midnight Ball and Princess of Glass with their unique spin on fairy tales, so naturally I want this last book in the trilogy, too, a retelling of Red Riding Hood. What I love about this series is that it is set way back in the past (umm… in the Middle Ages? Right?) and I love me some historical fiction. I mean, the modern retellings are so passé *wink*

6. Watch for Me By Moonlight (The Midnight Twins #3) by Jacquelyn MitchardWatch for Me By Moonlight
Unfortunately, this book is probably out of print, and it’s not easy to get this book in Germany. :( I ordered it via Amazon when it was briefly available, but so far, no news – and I ordered it two months ago.
I read and loved (!!) Look Both Ways, book No. 2 in the series! I’ll probably buy the ebook if I can’t get my hands on the physical copy, so there’s that. :)

Perfect Scoundrels7. Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3) by Ally Carter – trade paperback release date Jan 28th 2014
Kat, Hale, Gabrielle, the crew, heist – need I say more? Also, it seems we are going to get a glimpse of Hale’s millionaire-heir side of life!
(Is that supposed to be Hale who is reflected on the sunglasses??)

8. A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2) by George R. R. MartinA Clash of Kings
I probably don’t need to say much about this one, no? I’m smack in the middle of A Game of Thrones (and it already promises to be bloody – the first half was probably an only “peaceful” prologue of sorts), and while I’m warned to endure lots of heartbreaks, this series is so valued by many people that I want to read it, too. And I can take my time with it, ’cause the last book in the series will (probably) come out a decade later. :3

The Shade of the Moon9. The Shade of the Moon (Last Survivor #4) by Susan Beth Pfeffer
This series was supposed to be a duology, but now it’s a quartet! I have read all three in the series, and while the first one is the best one, with diminishing quality and quantity, reading these books remind me of how lucky I am to live in the world I live now. Also, waiting for the paperback release of this one.

10. Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1) by Richelle MeadBloodlines
Technically, Bloodlines is the first of its own series. BUT. You are supposed to read Bloodlines after Last Sacrifice, so I count it as sequel.
There have been many positive and quite some negative reviews about this book, so I’m keeping my expectations low. Who knows, maybe it will surprise me?

    1. Oh no, I’m afraid not – I live in Germany, you see. And German libraries really don’t have that large selection of English books :(
      But thanks for the advice nonetheless :)

      1. Aw, sadness. (But I’m sure there’s some good German books, at least.)

        Can you get an eBook reader? Lots of eBooks are cheap, compared to a physical book. Unless you’re a book purist, then never mind, I said nothing!

        1. Haha no, I’m not an extreme book purist ;) I do own a Kindle, so I will eventually read the e-version if I really can’t get a hold of a physical copy. But since I love the series so much I want the hardcover edition :)

    1. Mercy is great, right?! I read book #3 to #6 just this year, too.
      Have you read the spin-off series, Alpha & Omega?
      I can’t wait to read A Song of Ice and Fire books but at the same time I’m kinda scared :p
