Top Ten Best Sequels Ever
I read a lot of series, so this one is up my alley! It was harder than I expected to pick ten, because there were books I thought were great sequels but not the best sequels. And with some of the longer series I’ve read, it was hard to pick the one that was the best, especially since they’re all great. There are some seriously great sequels out there!
- Harry Potter 2-7. I honestly can’t pick one (and don’t want to). But HP keeps getting better, and they’re all so good!
- Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I’m always wary of 2nd books in series, but Scarlet definitely lived up to the high expectations that Cinder set.
- Siege And Storm by Leah Bardugo. Such a good continuation from Shadow And Bone.
- Specials by Scott Westerfeld. It’s my favorite book in the Uglies trilogy, and I liked seeing Tally change a lot between Uglies and Specials.
- Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. I actually liked Bitterblue a lot more than Fire, and I loved seeing what was going on in Bitterblue’s life after Graceling.
- Barely Breathing by Rebecca Donovan. I am so glad that this series is a series, because I don’t think I could handle not knowing what happened to Emma after finishing Reason To Breathe.
- Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I can’t imagine a better sequel to If I Stay. And it’s really rare that I like sequels better than the first one, but this is totally the case for Where She Went.
- Rachel Caine can write some pretty awesome sequels, and I love each of her series as whole, which makes picking the best sequel from her stuff really hard!
- The Trial Of Dr. Kate by Michael Glasscock. This was such a good follow-up to Little Joe, and while it’s more of a companion novel than an actual sequel, I love that you get to revisit Round Rock.
- Destined by Aprilynne Pike. This series got better as it went on, and Destined is such a good wrap-up for the series. I liked seeing more of Avalon, and the battle to save it was so action-packed and dramatic, and I couldn’t help but cry at the end of the book!
