Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Standalone Books That Need a Sequel’, but to be honest I’m the kind of reader who doesn’t want a standalone to have a sequel if it doesn’t need one.
I’ve gotten back into reading series over the past year, though, so today I thought I’d talk about some of the sequels I’m looking forward to reading!
Lamentation and Tombland by C.J. Sansom: Sansom brings the Tudor era so vividly to life in his Matthew Shardlake series, which is a series of historical crime novels, but I haven’t read the two latest books in the series. It’s about time I got on that!
The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman: I’m cheating a little here because I haven’t actually read The Invisible Library yet, but The Masked City is set in an alternate Venice and I love Italy so I really want to read this one this year.
Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan: I’m currently listening to the fourth book in this series, and then I’ll be moving on to this fifth and final book! I don’t feel ready to say goodbye to Isabella, but I’m still looking forward to this series finale.
Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor: I finished Strange the Dreamer last week and loved it so much more than I was expecting to! I can’t wait to get my hands on Muse of Nightmares, though sadly I need to wait for the publication of the paperback next month.
The Wicked King by Holly Black: The Cruel Prince is another book I didn’t expect to enjoy as much as I did so I’m really looking forward to The Wicked King! I do have a copy, but I’m saving it for a little while so I won’t have to wait as long for the third and final book.
