Book Sequels That I Need To Read

Sunday, January 24, 2016

Quite often, I'll read an amazing book that I become thoroughly invested in, but for some reason or other, I don't pick up the sequel or other books in the series. It actually saddens me, as a lot of these are wonderful stories and I'd love to see how both the plot and the characters progress. I decided to write this blog post, both as a way of sharing these with you and as a personal reminder, as hopefully I'll be able to read some of these books in the near future.

I'll start with the one that I'm most ashamed with. I haven't read Clockwork Prince or Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I honestly don't understand why, since I fell in love with Clockwork Angel when I read it last summer and I rated the six books in the Mortal Instruments as some of my all-time favourites. I'm determined to read these books whenever I get the chance, as I'd love to see the changes that Tessa, Jem and Will encounter and further immerse myself in the shadowhunter world. Also, I need a way to pass my time before Lady Midnight is released in March, which I'm incredibly excited for.

Another book that I'm ashamed to have not read is Allegiant by Veronica Roth. It was about a year and a half ago when I read Divergent and Insurgent and I thoroughly enjoyed both of them. I'm a huge fan of dystopian novels and found these to be incredibly gripping and addictive reads throughout. I took a short break after reading them before I planned on tackling Allegiant and I never got around to finishing the trilogy since then. I really hope that I'll be able to read this book in the future, but I'll need to refresh myself on what has happened beforehand.

I picked up Betrayal by Gregg Olsen immediately after reading the previous novel in the duology. Envy was fast-paced, gripping and I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery. However, there were quite a few loose ends that weren't resolved and not everything had been concluded, so I was eager to read the next book and gain some answers. Like all of the other books in this list, I started reading other titles and never got around to reading this book, but I'm determined to read it soon as mystery books are a nice change from fantasy and I'm eager to know what happens next.

After reading both Did I Mention I Love You and Did I Mention I Need You by Estelle Maskame, I really want to finish the trilogy and read the final installment of Eden and Tyler's story. This book hasn't yet been published but will be soon, so I'll definitely be picking it up when it is released. The story so far has been an addictive read and very relatable, providing an interesting take on a previously overdone topic. I was fully invested in the story during the first two books, and so I'm determined to know how the wonderful story will conclude.

One of the novels that I mention frequently is Finding Sky by Joss Stirling, which I thoroughly enjoyed and found to be a unique book out of those that I've read. I always say that this is the type of book that is perfect for me and, if I was to write a novel, I can imagine it being this story. I fell in love with every aspect of it, but for some reason, I only read the first book in the series. It's been a while since I read this book and I'm now ready to finish the series, which hopefully I'll be able to do soon with renewed motivation and excitement.

The final sequel that I really need to read is Barely Breathing by Rebecca Donovan. I read its predecessor during the summer and fell in love with it, despite it being a chilling and emotional story. I became really invested in the characters and rapidly completed the book, but couldn't get my hands on the next one due to being on holiday. I never got around to picking up Barely Breathing, but I feel as though it has been long enough and I really need to read it soon, as well as the final book in the trilogy to conclude the series.

These are just a few of the sequels that I really need to read, but there are many others that I could add to the list. Are there any series that you have started but never finished? Make sure you let me know down in the comments as I'd love to find out. Thank you for reading and I'll be back on Wednesday with a new post!
