Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they 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 great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
The Top Ten Book Sequels Ever
1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling - I dare you to tell me this isn't the best book in the whole series. I dare you. But seriously...does it get better than this? It has Sirius!
2. Frostbite by Richelle Mead - I swore up and down when I started this blog that I would never read this series. Well, I did...and I loved it. This book made me certain the series would continue to work for me.
3. The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman - Say what you want about the religious connotions of this series, but I love it. This novel (and the series as a whole) is such an outstanding example of fine literary work.
4. Mossflower by Brian Jacques - This series will always remain a favourite of mine, and this novel made it all worthwhile. Though it's a sequel, it's more of a prequel, and it really builds the series.
5. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare - I must admit that I stopped reading the series after I was disappointed with book three BUT book two was solid gold in my opinion.
6. Insurgent by Veronica Roth - It is so hard to really nail a second installment in a series and beat that sophomore slump. This book really managed to up the ante and further my investment in the series.
7. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner - All I'm saying is that if you haven't read this series, you are totally missing out. Book one was awesome. Book two was epic. Book three was mind-blowing.
8. Never Have I Ever by Sara Shepard - I wasn't a fan of the Pretty Little Liars series (love the show, not the books). This series, however, just gets more and more fun as we go!
9. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - I loved The Hunger Games, so when I read this book, I was pretty sure it wouldn't live up. What do you know? It rocked. It was even better than book one.
10. The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan - I know this is middle grade. So sue me. Tell me where else you're going to get an epic, fun and enticing series about Greek mythology that keeps getting better.
