Top Ten Best Sequels Ever


I’m excited to be doing another top ten tuesday, a weekly book meme from The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are sharing our favorite sequels. I’m a huge fan of series so this one was hard. I know I’m totally cheating by choosing all of the Harry Potter sequels, but trying to narrow them down was giving me a panic attack. Do you prefer sequels or stand-alone books? What is your favorite series? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I couldn’t pick a favorite last night … I kind of narrowed it down to Goblet of Fire or Half Blood Prince, but then I felt terrible. I like them all (except maybe 5 which I obviously liked but not quite as much).

      1. Although Little Women will always have a special place in my heart – Jo’s Boys is really the best.

      2. Oh my gosh. I can’t believe I just heard you (read you?) say that. I’ll admit that Little Women is probably a better book, but Jo’s Boys is so juicy! It’s definitely the one I read over and over again most.

  1. My favorite nontrilogy series are Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, Harry Potter, Juliet Marillier’s Sevenwaters series (which started off as a trilogy but was extended), and Sharon Shinn’s Twelve Houses series and her new Royal Blessings series.

  2. The only two I’ve read out of this list are “Something Blue” and “Lola and the Boy Next Door” – both were awesome. I don’t know tho – I think I may have loved the first ones more but these were definitely close seconds.

    In a lot of cases (much like movies) I prefer stand alones but sometimes I do love a good sequel, trilogy, etc. (ie: The Hunger Games and Divergent). I’d say that my favorite sequel as of late, was the sequel to Shatter Me, “Unravel Me.” As a *wait for it* Team Warner fan (as of the second book, not the first!) I absolutely LOVED the sequel and cannot wait for the third.

      1. It’s SO good. The author is super active on Twitter too! Maybe not as much anymore as she’s gotten so huge but one of the highlights of reading Shatter Me was that she was online as I devoured it in the middle of the night and she was tweeting with me as I reacted to chapters and then the ending. It made it that much more amazing.
