Top Ten Tuesday--Best Sequels Ever

So maybe I should title this post "Top Four Tuesday" because that's all I've got.  Let me explain.


Today's topic is about the best sequels ever...but I am HORRIBLE at reading sequels in a series!  Why?  Because there are SO MANY books out there and I want to read everything!  So often I get distracted by other books and never finish a series.  The Young Sherlock Holmes series by Andy Lane?  Read the first one.  The Wake series by Lisa McMann that my students RAVE about?  Read the first one.

And then when I do read an entire series, I almost always prefer the first book.  Just about every time.  So I only came up with four books for my top ten list. 
  • The Scorch Trials by James Dashner--I LOVE the Maze Runner series and was so engaged in this second book of the series.  So much mystery, action, secret behavior--I LOVED it!
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling--I think #4 and #7 were the best!
  • Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead--I loved the Vampire Academy series and this third book is when I became truly invested in the Rose/Dmitri saga.  So much emotion in that book--so. much. emotion.
  • Scorpia by Anthony Horowtiz--I am a die-hard Alex Rider fan and this fifth book was my favorite.  Very action-packed with a great villain.
Ok, so it's a measly list today, but maybe this will kick me into gear so I'll finish a few series!  Maybe...


  1. YES to Harry Potter and Shadow Kiss! I loved them <3

    I totally understand why you don't read many sequels... I hope you'll get to a couple soon, though!
