Sequels I'm Lusting Over

In which I make up my own theme and only list nine titles
2012 is officially the year of the sequel. These are a couple I'm excited about, one of which I've already read, Hallowed, and another I'm in the progress of reading, Pandemonium, but that doesn't make them any less exciting as sequels.
  1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
  2. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
  3. The Calling by Kelley Armstrong
  4. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
  5. The Blood Keeper by Tessa Gratton
  6. A Million Suns by Beth Revis
  7. Fever by Lauren DeStefano
  8. Rebel Heart by Moira Young
  9. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (It counts, right?) Postponed, so this will be on my 2013 list instead :)
And yup, they are all YA because YA seems to love its sequels in a way that the majority of the adult fiction I read (pretty much contemporary) doesn't. There's also a ton of interesting sequels coming out for books I haven't read the earlier novels for, so they've missed out on this list. Honestly, I think one of my goals this year should be to start fewer series! I hate having to wait. Or maybe read some more series that are already complete, that was the nice thing about delving into Westerfeld last year, and I plan to read at least one more series by him this year. There are also a few series I started this year that I'm not sure I will continue, which feels weird or unfinished but if I didn't really love the first book I figure I should cut my losses, especially considering middle books are notorious for their cliffhanger endings.

How do you feel about series? Any sequels you're absurdly excited for this year?


    1. Oh I am really excited about Pandemonium, so jealous you have it in your hot little hands.

    2. I'm so excited for most of these ones, too! :D There's a couple series I haven't started yet though. :) I'm excited for Pandemonium even though I haven't read Delirium yet, too! haha Oh, and Isla got pushed back to 2013 now. I just found out a little while ago. Stephanie had a blog post about it, and how she overworked herself and started to hate I'm happy waiting for it because I want plenty more books from her in the future. lol :)

      I'm so excited for Insurgent and The Calling so so excited! And I picked up A Million Suns at the bookstore yesterday, so I can start it soon...hopefully. :P lol

      One that I'm super excited for is The Rise of's the 3rd book in the Lorien Legacy series, and I just can't wait for it! :D

      Awesome list, Zoë! :D
      Thanks for sharing!
