Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we 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 fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait To Get

*in no particular order

1. Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout--it's a JLA book! Need I say more?! And I sooo can't wait to see who Layla ends up with! Hoping it's the guy I picked! ;)
2. Rogue by Julie Kagawa--omg! I sooo need this one in my life like several months ago!
3. The Forgotten Crown by Julie Kagawa--okay I so needed this like yesteryear!! And the WORST part is I still don't have a RELEASE DATE!! I AM GOING INSANE!!!

4. Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder--the Study series LIVES AGAIN! No longer a trilogy and I sooo can't wait to see everyone again!
5. The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige--OMG Dorothy Must Die was one of my favorite debuts this year! So can't wait for more! Still have the second novella to read too! The EARTH SHATTERING news is that the 3rd book is still slated to come out in 2017!
6. Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott--looooved Fire & Flood and sooo can't wait to see how this duology ends!

7. Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost--more Vlad!! Please! So can't wait to see how this trilogy ends!
8. Dark Debt by Chloe Neill--MORE ETHAN & MERIT! Yes yes yes! Love this series too!
9. Unleashed by Sophie Jordan--a duology that took me by surprised by how much I liked its first one! Can't wait for more of this one either!

10. Dusk by Alyssa Rose Ivy--omg you guys! This NA trilogy started off AMAZING! I LOVED Dire and I soooooooooo cannot wait to read Dusk!


  1. Nice tease. Totally new to me but it has me intrigued.

  2. Nice list! I can't wait for Bound by Flames, too!

  3. Oh yes!! Great list!! And I really need to put shadow study on my list as well =)

  4. Salt & Stone - yes!! I have Talon, but haven't read it yet. I really like the matchy cover of Rogue. :)

  5. Great tease, Jessica! I really want to read Princess of sounds fantastic! I love your sequel picks as well. YES JLA!!

  6. Great list! So far I've only read Poison Study but I enjoyed it, and I'd really like to continue with the series soon. :) I haven't read Talon yet, but man the covers for this series are just gorgeous!

  7. Great choices, I've only just finished reading Talon and had no idea the sequel had a name already or it might have made it onto my list. Wasn't Talon fab though?

  8. Great list! I still need to read Talon and Fire and Flood even though I have copies of both. I'm excited for The Witch Will Rise too but I think I may wait until the last book comes out and just marathon them both.

    Also how is Princess of Thorns? I need to finish the Finishing School series and then I'm reading it. SO excited!

  9. As usual, great minds think alike, right? Half your books are on my list too! I can't believe i forgot Shadow Study though. Seems like it's been forever since I've read anything with Valek and Yelena in it!!

  10. I haven't started any of these series, but I really do want to read Dorothy Must Die and Talon! You always add more to my TBR list. -_- That thing will never be empty.

    Here are my Top Ten!

  11. Two words, Shadow Study! I just read the first book in her Healer trilogy and I loved it! Have you tried it?

  12. I've heard so many good things about the Study series, I need to get started!

  13. The cover to Dark Debt is nothing but badassery!

    I also love your teaser this week! I've heard nothing but great things, have you read her Juliet series?

    Amber Elise @ Du Livre

  14. I seriously need Every Last Breath ASAP! The wait is going to kill me. And The Forgotten Crown is another one! The ending to the last book HURT and no release date makes me so sad!

  15. Princess of Thorns sounds awesome! I haven't read any of the series that you're waiting on sequels for, but I hope you get to read them soon!
