Top Ten Best Sequels Ever

Posted September 23, 2013 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 16 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is kind of exciting! I’m usually not the biggest fan of sequels, just because the first book is usually WAY better. These sequels, however, were amazing!





Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
(Sequel to Anna and the French Kiss)

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
(Sequel to Shadow and Bone)

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
(Sequel to Cinder)

Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone
(Sequel to Time Between Us)

Of Triton by Anna Banks
(Sequel to Of Poseidon)

Asunder by Jodi Meadows
(Sequel to Incarnate)

Thorns by Kate Avery Ellison
(Sequel to Frost)

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
(Sequel to Throne of Glass)

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
(Sequel to Under the Never Sky)

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
(Sequel to Shiver)

So, what do you think? Have you read any of these? What sequels are your favorites?

  1. Wowwwwww

    The only one of these I’ve read is Crown of Midnight (which made my list) but I just had to comment because your..I don’t even know what you call this. Graphics? Layout post thing? It’s amazing. I can’t even get two pictures to stay side by side on my blog hahahaha! (Although judging by my inability to describe what I am talking about – how you made your sequels look – this shouldn’t be a huge surprise)

      Oh, thank you! I actually made the entire batch of covers and numbers in one big Photoshop document. That allowed me to lay them out and space them properly. Then I just saved the image and inserted it into the post like I would a book cover. It’s much faster that way, and lets me add extra graphics to make it prettier. :) I’m so glad you like it!

      Oh, yay! People seem to have forgotten about this series, but I loved Shiver and Linger! You’re right about Forever… bleh.

      And thank you! So glad you like my graphics. :)

  2. LOVE THIS! I actually have yet to read most of these sequels, such as Scarlet, Through The Ever Night, Asunder and Siege And Storm, but I have read the first books and am so excited! Guess this post inspires me to pick the next ones up :D And I am really thrilled to start Anna and The French Kiss too! So many rave reviews, and it seems like such an interesting book :) So there’s that. Great list! <3

      Oh, you must go read ALL THE SEQUELS! Hehe. And Anna is amazing. Read that ASAP too. :) If only we had more time to read, huh?

  3. Ditto to the comments on your Photoshopping. I want to start doing things like this for my blog, but I feel like I’m still getting the hang of blogging. :)

    I love The Shadow and Bone series – that one made my list, too, and so did Asunder. I’ve got copies of both Anna and Lola, but I haven’t read them yet. Same for Cinder and Scarlet, and I hope I can get to them soon.

      Thank you! The graphics are probably my favorite part of blogging, just because I can make things pretty! I guess it’s the graphic designer in me. :)

      Definitely get to Anna, Lola, Cinder, and Scarlet ASAP! Those are four of my very favorite books!
