I don’t know why I do this to myself, I mean I LOVED the first book so why do I wait so long to read the sequel? Might have something to do with the fact that I find sequels harder to review for some reason. Who knows! What I do know is these books need me to read them, stat!
I will include links to my full reviews of the first books if available and these aren’t in any particular order.
Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicles #1) by Jay Kristoff
I fell completely in love with “Nevernight” it’s exactly my type of book so I’m really ashamed of myself for not having read its sequel! To be fair though I might just wait until “Darkdawn” is released so I don’t have to wait!
Crooked Kingdom (The Dregs #2) by Leigh Bardugo
Every time I glance at this book on my shelves I feel guilty for not having read it yet, I liked “Six of Crows” and this is only a duology so I really don’t have any excuses.
A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2) by Sabaa Tahir
I bought this book right after finishing “An Ember in the Ashes” because I was addicted and the cliffhanger was brutal! And yet….I still haven’t read it and “A Reaper at the Gates” is out and everything! I know once I start this I’ll be sucked right back in though.
A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab
I started this series when the first book was just released and it’s been finished since the beginning of 2017 and I still haven’t read this one! I really don’t have any excuses for this since I own all of them….
Now I Rise (The Conqueror’s Saga #2) by Kiersten White
“And I Darken” is one of my all time favorite books because of how creative and unique it is, this trilogy is also finished now. I really need to dive back into this series, I need more dark, morally gray decisions and characters!
Kinslayer (The Lotus Wars #2) by Jay Kristoff
Yeeeeahh I have a thing for Jay Kristoff’s books……and by that I mean I love them and apparently don’t finish them. I loved “Stormdancer” mainly because I was so shocked and I love talking animal companions so I definitely need more!
Vengeful (Villains #2) by V.E. Schwab
I feel like I waited forever for this book even though it was a lot less than people who read “Vicious” when it was initially released. Even so I was DYING for the sequel and pre-ordered it and everything. And here it sits. Unread. Shame on me.
Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2) by Laini Taylor
After quite literally taking forever to read “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” I guess I’m not too surprised with myself for not reading the sequel yet. However, I absolutely adore Laini Taylor’s world building and writing so I will get back into this series…..along with all of her other books.
What are some sequels you still need to read?
Have you read any of these books or their sequels? What did you think?
Do you read sequels as soon as possible or wait (like me!)?
