Top Ten Tuesday: Best Sequels

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started by The Broke and the Bookish. A meme where you will post your top ten of everything that's been asked here, just take note of the date.

Like the rest of the memes here, this is my first Top Ten Tuesday post and I'm excited to do the rest of the rest! I find this meme fun and a good way of recommending books to others.

Top Ten Best Sequels for August 24, 2013 (not really in order because I love these books too much)

01. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling - I love every HP book but this one holds a special place in my heart when I was a kid (until now) but hey, every HP book is amazing and gets better and better.

02. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead - As much as I love The Indigo Spell, this one is still my best pick out of the three because it really showcased how the friendship between Sydney and Adrian grow and how they're there for each other.

03. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - My emotions are all over the place because of this book. I even cried when the trailer came out and now I'm so pumped for November.

04. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - When talking about CC's works, I am terribly biased over The Infernal Devices because this trilogy is just wonderful and really plucks out your heartstrings. And CP gave me a roller coaster ride of emotions.

05. The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa - I'm not really saying this is the BEST sequel but what I love about this book was that Meghan seemed to become a more responsible character. I can still remember how much I want to strangle her during the phase of the first book but I ended up liking her in book two and loving her in book three (this one).

06. Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout - I just read the Lux Series this year and I'm hooked. REALLY HOOKED. And so far, Origin's the best among the four.

07. Where She Went by Gayle Forman - This was my first contemporary and I this made me fell in love with contemporary romance and this is also holds a special place in my heart (yeah I'm being cheesy).

08. Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead - Yes, another RM book (I love her books..although I only read VA and BL). This book made me ache inside.

09. Insurgent by Veronica Roth - Divergent was interesting, but this one was MORE interesting.

10. The Percy Jackson books - I love this series a lot. A LOT. And like the HP books, it gets better and the adventures get interesting. I need to start The Heroes of Olympus ASAP.

And there ends my list. Again, they're no in order.

I have so many sequels in my TBR that I've been craving to read soon: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (sequel to The Raven Boys); Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi (sequel to Under the Never Sky, will likely read this December); Prodigy by Marie Lu (sequel to Legend) and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (sequel to Cinder). I'm missing a lot....


  1. Yay! So happy you're starting to participate in memes! I'm not taking part in TTT this week simply because I didn't read that many sequels that I would call "Best". Great list Chai!

    1. I'm enjoying these memes! They're fun and I get to discover some new books in people's lists. Aww, I'll just look forward to your post next week ;) Thank you, Sandy!

  2. Although I didn't include these on my list (it's SO hard to narrow the list to just 10!!), I totally agree with your choices of The Iron Queen and Origin - both are the best in the entire series.

    1. I feel you :( I honestly feel like those two are the strongest ones in their respective series. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. YES! Catching Fire AND Insurgent AND Shadow Kiss?! We're like soul sisters! Thanks for the awesome list, doll! :)

    1. Thank you, too!! If we live in the VA world, I'd say we're bonded haha. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  4. I've heard so many good things about the Infernal Devices- I really should try and read them sometime. And Insurgent. I need to read Insurgent.

    Great list!

    1. I definitely recommend The Infernal Devices :) It's pretty unique when the world is set in the Victorian era in London with characters fighting demons and stuff. Oh and Insurgent, you must. YOU MUST. Thanks!
