Not that long ago, I got an email in my inbox mentioning all the sequels being released in the first half of 2020 and I was truly terrified to open that post and check out which sequels were on there. So scared I actually ended up not reading the post and instead making a note of it.. A note to check it out when doing blog prep and thus creating this post. Are you ready for the attack of the sequels? To drool all over the covers?
I love these covers. I really do. I don’t even know why I haven’t read The Hazel Wood yet because it sounds so good! A twisted and dark fantasy. That’s the vibe I’m getting when reading the synopsis and it’s definitely the kind of fantasy I like diving into. Why, oh why haven’t I read this yet?!
Another one I really don’t know the reason why I haven’t read it yet. Although I do remember there being a lot of mixed reviews and feelings regarding Kiersten White’s new series. That’s probably it. Maybe I’m holding off because I’m not ready to find out whether I’ll be disappointed as well? I am curious to see what kind of Buffy the Vampire Slayer-vibes it’ll give me though. Eventually! I promise! Also, feel free to convince me to read any of the first instalments asap if you have huge reasons to.
Although I feel like I got spoiled for We Set the Dark on Fire by reading some reviews on Goodreads – thanks for that.. – I’m still curious to find out how I’ll feel about this book. It’s a case of it might or might not be my cup of tea. Some things mentioned in reviews have me intrigued while others.. make me want to not pick it up. I guess I won’t be reading this one very soon but at least it’s on the TBR, right?! If you’ve read it, please do tell me what you definitely liked or disliked about it!
I have such a pretty copy of Wicked Saints and the gothic vibe, the war, the characters all sounds so good but.. You guessed it – not that hard since it’s this specific post, haha – I still haven’t read it! I’ve heard amazing things about it but I can’t seem to find the time to pick it up. It’s a simple fact I own too many books for my own good – and most of them unread too. Some day though. Some day.. [For some reason WordPress won’t let me put the series in the right order when aligning them on the right side.. Sorry about that!]
Last, but definitely not least, is The Beholder. It was one of my most anticipated releases when I saw the cover but.. the synopsis ended up being a bit disappointing? I expected pirates and action and.. I don’t know. I guess that and some reviews I read back then put me off picking it up as soon as I had originally planned. That happens, right? On that note: If you have any pirate-y recommendations for me, I’m all ears!
That’s it! All the first instalments I have yet to read, but have owned for quite some time now. I think chances are high I’ll be picking up at least Slayer and The Hazel Wood this year but who knows? Bookish life tends to be very, very unpredictable.
What is a series you should have started ages ago but still haven’t?
What 2020-sequel are you looking foward to most?
