TTT: Top Sequels I Can't Wait to Read!

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait to Get!  I'm going to split this list into sequels I can't wait to come out and then sequels that I still need to read.

Sequels I Can't Wait to be Published:
1.  I absolutely cannot wait until the last installment of The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss comes out - I want to know the end of Kvothe's story!!

2.  I always love the newest installment of The Pink Carnation Series and can't wait until the next mystery/historical romance/adventure!

3First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen is a sequel of sorts to Garden Spells.  I can't wait to see what has happened to all of these well-loved characters!

4.  I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the Queen of the Tearling Series!  I really enjoyed the first novel and look forward to The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen in 2015.

Sequels I Can't Wait to Read (but haven't read yet for some reason...)
5.  Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

6.  Seige and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

7.  Across a Star Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund

8.  The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

9.  Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartmen

10.  The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

The moral of the story...I really need to wait to start a series until most books are already published.  Whups!

TTT: Top Ten Characters That Should Get Their Own Book

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Characters That Should Get Get Their Own Book.

1.  Fermin Romero de Torres from The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

2.  Thetis from The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller...she's so mean, scary, and powerful - interesting combo for a heroine!

3.  How about little Rob from Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley?  Oh wait...she already did write a novel about him, Firebird!  (I highly recommend both)

4. I think Ashley Cordova from Marisha Pessl's Night Film would have a very interesting story.

5.  I would have said Auri from The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, but he just came out with a book centered around this delightful character called The Slow Regard of Silent Things.

6.  I would love a book focused entirely on the flamboyant Lord Akeldema from Soulless by Gail Carriger

7.  How about Isaac from John Green's The Fault in Our Stars?

8.  Manchee from The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

9.  Bay from Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (but I think her soon to be published book, First Frost, revolves around Bay!)

10.  I absolutely loved Swede from Peace Like a River by Leif Enger and think she definitely deserves her own book!
