It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. Well actually, it’s not, as it’s quite clearly Wednesday, but yesterday I was too busy posting about Bonfire Night, and I really didn’t want to miss this one: Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait to Get My Hands On. For anyone unfamiliar with TTT, it’s organised by The Broke and the Bookish http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.co.uk/p/top-ten-tuesday-other-features.html and the idea is quite simple. Every week, they provide a book-related theme and bloggers have to pick their top ten.

Top Ten Sequels I can’t wait to get my hands on:

The Epic Fantasy follow-ons I’ve been waiting for ages for – sadly neither of these have a release date yet, and both authors had huge gaps between their last two books, so I won’t be expecting to read these any time soon.

1) The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones) – George RR. Martin

2) The Doors of Stone (The Kingkiller Chronicles) – Patrick Ruthfuss

The final books of trilogies I’ve loved this year – luckily, all of them are due next year and the authors seem pretty reliable. I think they come out around the same sort of time – that’s going to be an intense month’s reading! 

3) Ruin and Rising (The Grisha)  – Leigh Bardugo

4) Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) – Lauri Taylor

5) Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin Trilogy) – RL LaFevers

The one I have been waiting half my life for, to the extent that it’s never going to live up to my expectations 

6) Strange Fate (Nightworld Series) – Nine Nightworld books came out in quick succession in  the late nineties. Te tenth and final book in the Nightworld series was meant to be released in 1998, when I was 13. Since then, it’s been delayed and delayed. Release dates have been announced and dropped. After the awfulness that was the new Vampire Diaries trilogy, I’m not even that keen to read this any more, but I know that the second it’s published (if that ever happens) I will buy it, just to get some sort of closure!
