Well.. If you know me and my monthly reading challenges, you might know I dedicate each September to catching up on sequels. That pretty much shows how awful I am at them. I keep procrastinating, keep picking up other books, starting other series. I don’t know why; I just do!
In any case.. You could say I have a huge list of sequels to catch up on. I’m only counting the books I actually own in this post – and even then, I’m narrowing it down to only ten because there’s way more than that. Twenty-one to be exact.. Ugh..
So, let’s take a look at those “Sequels I’m Hopefully Reading This Year” and.. ignoring the actual topic of today, since the books I planned on reading in 2018 but didn’t get to are all on my January Jam Jar TBR.
All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out!
I’m still beating myself up over not having read Escaping from Houdini yet. Or The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy for that matter. But, the ones I feel most guilty about – I can’t help it! – are the next installments in The Monster of Selkirk-series! I’ll keep shouting about these books – that’s for sure – but I should actually make sure I’ve read them all, right? Especially since the fifth installment is on its way to me so I should.. yeah..
Then we have these. They all fit together, right? Funny how that happened – I didn’t even do it on purpose! I’m going to reread all other Shadowhunter-books before picking up Queen of Air and Darkness. Or at least, that’s the plan at this point. Let’s hope I’m actually able to pull it off!
I’m also hoping to finish Eva Chase’s reverse harem-series this year. I own all the books and I promised myself I wouldn’t buy any of her other books until I read these so..
To switch things up a bit, there are also some books that aren’t fantasy sequels I’d like to pick up this year. Continuing Jenny Han’s trilogy is highest on that list, without a doubt! I absolutely flew through To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, so I’m looking forward to continuing Lara Jean’s story! And, of course Still Me. I wonder if I’ll end up crying as much as I did with Me Before You…
Last but not least, I’m hoping to read these. Doctor Sleep is one I’m only half looking forward to, but that’s mainly due to my fear of getting freaked out. The Shining‘s animal bushes are still haunting me.. Although I’m glad we moved and don’t have any neighbors with animal bushes in their yards right now – yay! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Days of Blood & Starlight as well. I really loved Daughter of Smoke & Bone but the second installment? Struggled with it!
As for Archenemies.. That one’s actually next on my TBR since I pulled it out of my jar last week so hopefully I’ll be able to tick this one off the list soon!
Those are ten series I’d love to catch up on / finish this year!
What are some of the series you’re still in the middle of?
Or are you dreaming of starting a new series?
