Read on below if you want to chat all thing sequels.
1.) Bewitching by Alex Flinn: following up Flinn's Beauty and the Beast re-telling, Beastly, this novel again features Kendra. Though not a sequel in the traditional way, this book was a BIG surprise. I was amazed how likable and "good" Kendra actually was. She isn't someone to fear like the movie may depict her - she's vulnerable and the sort of girl anyone could befriend.
2.) Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins: yes, still need to read this book. Most of you know I have "issues" with THG however I plan to finish out the series and with the movie upcoming, it seems a good time to finally read this one.
3.) Dark Road Home by Elizabeth Ludwig: much to my surprise I adored Elizabeth's first novel, No Safe Harbor. That put this book high on my TBR list and it's still there.
4.) The Elite by Kiera Cass: this book excited my so much I did something I never do - I had it delivered from Amazon the day of its release. Though I was able to start it, finishing it had to be put on hold, now I'm sort of "freaking out" to finally get through this book, particularly with the recent excitement about The One!
5.) Forget me Not by Amber Stokes: this one isn't out yet, however I couldn't resist adding it. It's a sequel I am definitely anticipating - both to find out more about the characters from Bleeding Heart and to see what Amber does with her already talented pen. (PS: stayed tuned, a little over a week from now is Amber's next cover debut!)
6.) Glittering Promises by Lisa T. Bergren: yes, I know this isn't exactly a "sequel" since it's actually the third in the series. However being the final book in the Grand Tour trio, it definitely has a follow-up branding as we come into the final journey of Cora and Company. It promises to be one last exciting and compelling journey - to a place where Cora will finally find "home."7.) Love's Awakening by Laura Frantz: earlier this year, an opportunity to read Love's Reckoning arose and while I did have some reservations about the book, I was unusually impressed with the attitude of its heroine, Eden. Raised in a home without love, her quest for spiritual fulfillment was one of the most pure and lovely I've experienced in a long time. That alone is enough to make me curious about this sequel.
8.) Timeless by Michelle Madow: if you've guessed that again this is not really a sequel proper, you'd be right. I wanted to add Timeless in this list and thought it appropriate since the middle novel in Michelle's debut series is actually a novella. Timeless may not be quite as good as the first book, but I thought it was a nice way to end the series and thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.
9.) Trapped by Irene Hannon: this is without doubt one of, if not the best yet from Hannon!
10.) When a Secret Kills by Lynette Eason: not sure if it's her strongest book, but I absolutely loved this novel from Lynette Eason! This was the story I was waiting for throughout the whole series and its didn't disappoint.
Victory! I actually found ten - that was tough, believe it or not.
