Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish blog with a different top ten list theme (all related to books) every Tuesday (see the full list here
Confession: I don't read many sequels, only about 3 a year. So my list is short and a little... unconventional.
1. Lirael, by Garth Nix, sequel to Sabriel. This one surprised me because it introduced new main characters and the main characters from the first book only played bit parts, except for Mogget the cat (or is he a cat?)
2. The Iron Knight, by Julie Kagawa. This was actually the fourth and last book in the Iron Fey series, but this is the only series I've read where the books just kept getting better and better.
3. Shadowscale, sequel to Seraphina, by Rachel Hartman. Totally cheating here since this won't even be out until February 2014! But there you go, I can't wait for this sequel.
4. Ebon, the sequel to Pegasus, by Robin McKinley. Not due out until an unspecified time in 2014. Ack!!! been waiting since 2011 for this sequel!
5. The Unbound, sequel to the Archived by Victoria Schwab. January 2014 - at least this one has a cover!!! I love the title, too.
Bonus: I've read the first book in the Temeraire series (His Majesty's Dragon) by Naomi Novik and loved it. LOVED IT!!! Haven't gotten to any others in the series but I am so happy I have more regency-era dragons to read about... this is the case where I don't want to rush into them and devour them all at once; I want to drag the pleasure out a while!
What's your favorite sequel? (book or movie - my favorite movie sequel is Empire Strikes Back, but Star Trek Into Darkness is a close second)
