Welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday! This week I’m talking about the Top Ten…er three sequels I can’t wait to get my hands on. I’m not reading a lot of series right now, and the ones that I am reading, I’m far behind on. Except for these three. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog post hosted by The Broke and Bookish
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Say what you will, and please don’t bring it to my blog, about Cassandra Clare and her series. I for one am hooked on it, and though I feel a slight shame in it I really want to read the last of the Shadowhunter books. I’m hoping that everything’s tied up nicely, and a few things get fixed that were broken in a previous book. I’m side eyeing a certain pairing rather hard.
ΕRCHOMAI, SEBASTIAN HAD SAID.
I am coming.
Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in the world can defeat him — must they journey to another world to find the chance? Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!
Murder of Crows (The Others #2) by Anne Bishop. I love Anne Bishop, and pretty much everything she writes. I fell on this series by accident, and I read the first book in a few hours, and instantly took to goodreads to see when the next was coming out. This is a really great series, and I’ll have a review of Written in Red up soon.
After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.
The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murders of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of a future threat.
As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor. I’ve fallen so hard for this series, and I’m trying to find a way to shove it at one of my friends to read it without coming off as a complete creepy person who throws books. I’m in love with the world that Laini has built and I like the characters. I’ll have reviews up for the other books soon. (arg, I’m so backlogged)
What power can bruise the sky?
From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.
At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?
So those are the top three sequels I’m eagerly anticipating getting my hands on. What books are you looking forward to? If you’ve also posted a Top Ten, feel free to link it in the comments below.
