Top Ten Tuesday: Sequels on My Fall 2018 TBR

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books On My Fall 2018 TBR. As I looked through my list of books coming out, I realized there was a pattern. A lot of the books coming out this fall are sequels to a previous book. So here are ten sequels I cannot wait to read this fall.

Wildcard by Marie Lu: Warcross was a fun book, even if parts of it were a bit predictable. I’m looking forward to how Lu will expand upon the first book.

The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli: The Last Namsara was one of my favorite books of 2017. While The Caged Queen is about different characters set in the same world, I’m eager to read more of Kristen Ciccarelli’s writing. Plus, she promises to continue the story aspects of the book, which were some of my favorite parts of the first book.

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor: Do I even need to explain why I need this book ASAP? Seriously, the ending of Strange the Dreamer practically killed me. I need answers and more Lazlo Strange.

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzie Lee: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue was a surprise for me. I loved the historical details and the ridiculous characters. I’m so glad Felicity gets her own story!

A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs: I can’t say I’m completely thrilled that Ransom Riggs is continuing his Miss Peregrine’s series, but I know I’ll end up reading this book.

The Devil’s Thief by Lisa Maxwell: The Last Magician blew me away last year, and while a part of me wishes it was a standalone, I’m excited for the sequel. Mainly because I don’t want to say goodbye to the characters permanently.

West by Edith Pattou: I read East years ago, so I don’t remember much about it besides polar bears and it was really good. I never thought it would get a sequel (or need a sequel), but I’m interested in what it’ll be about! I plan to reread East before West releases in October.

Archenemies by Marissa Meyer: The end of Renegades left me with a major book hangover, and I’m thrilled this series is now a trilogy instead of a just a duology. The cover for Archenemies is absolutely gorgeous, and I cannot wait to see what happens to my superhero faves.

Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns was an unexpected favorite read for me. I love how she adapted the Snow White fairy tale to recreate the Evil Queen’s backstory. I can’t wait to see how everything plays out in the sequel.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald by J.K. Rowling: While I enjoyed the Harry Potter books, I loved Fantastic Beasts. (I know, I know… I’m probably in the minority on that one.) I’m still not sure how I feel about Jude Law playing Dumbledore, but I cannot wait to be reunited with Newt and the gang, whether on screen or page.

    • Oh, I get the feeling. I’ve been dragging my feet to read the second Gentleman Bastard book by Scott Lynch and Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss because I know I’ll just be stuck waiting for the next books.


      • Yeah, that’s one of the annoying feelings. On the other hand, I do like to buy the books when they are released so that the publisher sees that there is interest in the series and doesn’t cancel it…

      • True! I wish I could buy EVERY book I love when they’re released so I can support them but my bank account and bookshelf space says no.


  1. I’ve wanted to read EAST and didn’t know there was a WEST. Hope it gets as much praise and the first book. I read these lists and I start to panic. There are so many books out there that I haven’t even heard of and now I want to look into them. But my TBR is already over 100 books long. If I just read them it would take me over a year to finish the list without adding new titles (which I do all the time.) Eek! My Fall TBR list

    • I had no idea West was ever going to be a thing until I was looking through books I read a long time ago.

      And I understand. There are so many books out there for me too. I have tons of books on my TBR list, and a lot are comic books, which just keep coming out in more often than books sometimes!


    • I heard he was writing another trilogy or possibly four books about the Miss Peregrine’s crew in America. And while I liked the books and even the movie, four more books seems a bit much. So I’ll probably either wait until they are all out or I won’t read them at all.


  2. You’re definitely right saying there are SO many sequels coming out soon! Kingdom of Ash and Queen of Air and Darkness are at the top of that list, but Wildcard, Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix and The Ladies Guide are as well. Not to mention some standalones I’m so eager to get my hands on.. Simply too many books and I’ve no clue how my bank account will handle it all, haha.

    Happy reading to you! 🙂

    • I’m actually waiting until Kingdom of Ash and Queen of Air and Darkness come out to start those series, but I am so psyched for many others.

      I definitely wish I could buy all the books, but usually I check out most from my local library so I don’t break my bank account.

      • I admire you for that, haha. I would’ve started them ages ago – as I did :’) – because it’s a lot of big books to get through.

        I relate. At first I couldn’t really afford books either but nowadays, I’m privileged to be able to buy them as I please [most of the time, at least]. Our libraries rarely have new releases, let alone in English so I don’t really have much choice when it comes to buying books anyway. 🙂

        You’re welcome!

      • I’m sorta waiting for the hype surrounding them to die down so it’ll be easier to find copies of them.

        I’m glad you at least can afford SOME of the books you want to read. I often forget that not every library system works how my local library does.
