Top Ten Tuesday: Best Sequels

Check out the Quantum Entanglement review and guest post over at Project Read and Review! The blog tour is going splendidly!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Top Ten Sequels Ever (All covers courtesy of Goodreads.com unless otherwise linked.)

In no particular order,

10. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor, sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Amazing. Just amazing!


9. Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs, sequel to Forgive my Fins. Delightful mermaid read--probably my favorite that I read over the summer!


8. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare, sequel to City of Bones. Just read this but really enjoyed it. Look for the review on Wednesday!


7. One Shark, No Swim--sequel to the delightful middle-grade debut, One Boy, No Water by Lehua Parker.

6. Fragments by Dan Wells, sequel to Partials--totally loving this dystopian series!


5. Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind, sequel to Wizard's First Rule--I'll admit it's been years since I read these, but I remember finding the second one infinitely more interesting than the first.

4. A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin, sequel to Game of Thrones--Awesome continuation of the series.

3. World Without End by Ken Follett, sequel to The Pillars of the Earth. Loved both of these!


2. Eldest by Christopher Paolini--sequel to Eragon: I actually haven't finished the series, but I read Eragon and liked it; then I read Eldest and LOVED it!


1. The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan, sequel to The Eye of the World. There are always some complaints about the end of book 1 being somewhat nebulous, but the end of book 2 is epic and awesome! One of the best endings I've ever come across!

What are your favorite sequels?


  1. er...I'm not sure if this posted the first time, so sorry if you get a double posting from me!

    I'm pretty sure Eldest was may favourite book in the series. The other books weren't bad, it just felt like the story got kind of bogged down or like Paolini lost some interest/direction with the series. It's still a pretty good series though, so I can't complain too much!

    I really, really need to read World Without End! It is also part of the reason I think I'll need to get an e-reader before I ever get around to it haha. I get most of my reading done on the train, and I don't see it being feasible to read that with one hand while standing on the train!

  2. Ooh nice picks! Quite a few of these are new to me!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I meant to include one of the ASoIaF books on my list -- can't believe I forgot! I'd probably pick A Storm of Swords, but they're all so amazing it would be hard to narrow it down. (Okay, I wouldn't pick A Feast for Crows, but any of the others...). Nice list! And thanks for stopping by!


  4. So do you enjoy the Fins are Forever series? It looks so tacky I've made some assumptions D:

  5. You have such a wide taste in books Liesel. It's very mind-expanding.

  6. Oh, I LOVE your list! Days of Blood and Starlight, City of Ashes, Fins are Forever... Love those! Eldest was my favorite out of the Inheritance Cycle too! I think it's because I prefer Roran over Eragon, to be honest.
