I’ve decided to participate in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday list hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, even if I am quite late.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Best Sequels Ever. I am really bad at reading sequels. I read lots of book #1s, but then forget to read any other books in the series.
Looking at my 5 star lists for 2010-2013, I only have 5 book #2s listed as 5 star, with none so far this year. In order of newest read to oldest, they are:
- The Kingdom (Graveyard Queen #2) by Amanda Stevens
- Fire (Graceling Realm #2) by Kristin Cashore
- Ashen Winter (Ashfall #2) by Mike Mullin
- Blood Rock (Skindancer #2) by Anthony Francis
- The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium #2) by Stieg Larsson
I have read 3 book #2s that were 4 star reads this year:
- Scorch (Croak #2) by Gina Damico
- Unbelievable (Port Fare #2) by Sherry Gammon
- Twice as Deadly: The Deadlies: Book Two (The Deadlies #2) by A.C. Miller
I did have a number of 4 star reads for book #2 in 2012, but that would push my list over ten, so I guess I’ll stop at 8. My wishlist of Next-in-Series books is quite large, so it looks like I need to read more sequels!
