Sequels I Keep Putting Off / #toptentuesday 202

Once again I am changing the prompt for top ten tuesday. Talking about tropes just isn’t really my thing I guess. Sometimes I’ll like tropes and sometimes I won’t. It depends a lot on the story and the writing I am noticing a lot lately.

So for today I am taking a head start with the topic 3 weeks in the future, books on my tbr I avoid. Today will be just sequels and then will be books I really avoid in general. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.


One Dark Throne (Three Dark Crowns 2) by Kendare Blake

You know I was really surprised with how much I ended up liking the first book. But then it took a while to get the second book and Fall last year was really difficult for me when I did get it. And I just never ended up reading it.

Ringer (Replica 2) by Lauren Oliver

I bought the wrong edition so now they don’t match *rolls eyes*. It is a sequel so with this I’d be finishing a series. Really just need to pick it up. Maybe during sci-fi month.

Up (Paaz 2) by Myrthe van der Meer

This one is more delicate. The first book Paaz is about being admitted to a psychiatric ward for depression. As you all know that is something I suffer from. This sequel is the return of the character there. When I read the first book I was doing really well and of my meds and it still hit home. I just don’t think I am ready now to read that sequel.

Revocatie (De Demon van Felswyck 2) by Jurgen Snoeren

This one is so biiiiiig and I really need to reread the first one too and that is so biiiiig too.

Shadowcaster (Shattered Realms 2) by Cinda Williams Chima

I was just really peeved at the cover changes for these.

These I Even Still Need to Buy

Gemina (The Illuminae Files 2) by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Again I was really surprised by Illuminea but for some reason I have not purchased this yet.

Song of the Dead (Reign of the Fallen 2) by Sarah Glenn Marsh

This is another duology I could just finish and yet, here we are. I did like Reign of the Fallen but I am also unsure of what to expect of this second book.

House of Many Ways (Howl’s Moving Castle 3) by Diana Wynne Jones

Seriously I love Howl. I just need to commit to buying it sometime.

The Wicked King (Folks of Air 2) by Holly Black

I liked The Cruel Prince but I haven’t quite felt like buying this second one. Like I lost interest or something?

Wild Country (The Others 7) by Anne Bishop

This hardcover is just so expensive!

  1. I am pretty good at putting off readings sequels. I try and limit myself to the amount of series I am reading at one time and that kind of helps me. Excellent topic!

  2. Great list! I have Ringer on my tbr too, and while I remember enjoying Replica, I haven’t been pulled to pick up Ringer at all 🙈I think I need to re-read Replica before starting this one whenever I pick it up lol

  3. Great list! I really enjoyed The Wicked King and I wasn’t sure that I would, but I thought it was even better than the first book which is always a nice surprise. I keep meaning to check out Reign of the Fallen and Illuminae, and I want to read more Diana Wynne Jones, too. 🙂 I hope you enjoy all of these when you get to them!

  4. Ok you NEED Gemina, you are missing out on some fantastic characters. I’m like you though and I have so many sequels that I put off and mostly for not any real reason. I loved Reign of the Fallen and Song of the Dead as well. I haven’t read any of the companion books to Howl’s but I own them. Someday maybe I’ll actually read them lol

  5. Ah I have this problem a lot, mostly because it’s been too long and I forgot what happened in the first book and don’t take the time to reread so I just keep putting off the sequel. I also LOVED Illuminae and didn’t get to the sequels yet for some reason. Hope you’ll enjoy these though, when you get to them!

  6. Ringer was pretty good, it didn’t blow me away or anything, but I like cloning haha! I think it’s a decent end to that duology. Gemina I thought was excellent and easily my favorite of that series.

  7. Wow, okay, I feel slightly attacked. I obviously read all the sequels. *cough* *hides large pile of sequels I’ve neglected*

    Listen. I don’t care about all the others, but you really need to read Gemina so we can yell together. xD I’m not sure where I’ve been all this time, but I didn’t even realize Reign of the Fallen had a sequel. Wow. I also somehow didn’t know that there Howl’s Moving Castle was a series?! I’ve missed out on so much. I need to go read those now.

  8. Okay so this post??? Relatable. I cannot tell you how many sequels I keep putting off. Some for no reason, some for decent reasons, but like UGH. I am the worst about this. Especially the last few years. Also, Ringer is on that list that I keep putting off as well.

    And honestly a few others on here but I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m never going to learn and just keep procrastinating certain titles for one reason or another. That being said, I hope you get to a few of these in the future and that you enjoy them!
