Today is the day I’ve been anticipating for months. I worked half a day yesterday and then.. my holiday kicked off! A much-needed one that will last until January and I’m so, so ready for it. Not to mention all the books I’ll be reading since today is also the official start of the Short-a-thon! Are you joining?!
But that’s not the only thing I’m ready for. I’m also ready to start some series, to continue other series and thus.. to share my most anticipated sequels / series to read in 2019! Which is, of course, what today is all about on my blog.
All covers link back to the book’s Goodreads-page!
Let’s talk most anticipated 2019 sequels first. There are quite a bunch of those – and I just know I’ve overlooked some as well so.. I’ll be adding to the list throughout the entire year? Probably? As usual. We all know we can never stop adding to our TBR’s anyway.
I’ve been waiting so long for Rage. Its release was postponed by.. a year, I think? I read and reviewed Roar back in 2017 when it came in my FairyLoot box so.. It’s definitely been a while. I still know I liked it and loved the whole concept of the world Cora Carmack created so I cannot wait to continue reading!
Stephanie Garber’s Finale has to be on this list as well. I liked Caraval, but Legendary definitely made more of an impact on me. I can only keep my fingers crossed the third and final installment will be even more amazing. I’m so curious to see who’s POV this one will be from…
Ever since reading Laura Steven’s The Exact Opposite of Okay, I’ve been keeping an eye on any new releases and.. it’s happening! A Girl Called Shameless was added to my TBR pretty much the moment I found out about it. I haven’t pre-ordered it yet but.. I just might.
I don’t think I need to explain The Wicked King, right? You all know how much I loved The Cruel Prince, so it only makes sense I’m eagerly anticipating this one. I cannot wait to dive in and am fairly certain this will be one sequel I will actually read the moment it arrives – instead of letting it sit on my shelves for months on end..
Last, but definitely not least, is Children of Virtue and Vengeance. I know there’s been some commotion regarding Tomi Adeyemi and the accusation towards Nora Roberts – I’m not going into that right now – but I simply won’t let that affect the way I need the sequel of Children of Blood and Bone. I loved that book too much, okay.
But that’s not all! There are series I actually own already and still haven’t even started reading. I should change that; I know I should. Especially since I know so many of you love some of these books to bits and.. I kind of feel guilty for not having read them? Which is the most stupid thing ever but I can’t help it! I can only keep my fingers crossed I’ll at least make a start on these in 2019.
Of course, there are series I already started and have yet to continue.. You honestly don’t even want to know how many unread sequels are actually on my shelves. [Or should I say, packed in boxes?] But we’ll keep that shameful post for another day, hah.
What sequels are you looking forward to most? Any I missed?
How quickly to you read sequels once they’re released and you own a copy?
Are there series you really want to start but still haven’t?
Which series should every contemporary and/or fantasy lover definitely read?
