This week, I got two of my long-awaited sequels: Until I Die by Amy Plum (second in her Revenants trilogy, first being Die for Me) and Underworld by Meg Cabot (second in the Abandon trilogy). Both were awesome and I read them way too quickly. I love getting in on new series, but I hate having to wait for the next book! The final Revenants book is due next spring and I have not found a publication date for the final Meg Cabot book. Both had cliffhanger endings so it will be a long wait!
What I'm also waiting for at the library is Rapture, the last book in the Fallen series. It's available, but I just want to borrow it, rather than purchase it. Later this year Sapphire Blue, the sequel to the time travel book Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier will be available. Also later this year comes the latest volume in the Tales of Goldstone Wood series by Anne Elisabeth Stengl: Starflower.
I got some good tips from my friend Donna at the library yesterday when I went to pick up/drop off books. She's found two new series (I left my post-it note with the authors and titles on it at home) that she recommended, so I'll have to check those out too.
I picked up Magic Under Stone by Jaclyn Dolamore while I was there last week, not realizing it was a sequel, so I put in a request for the first, Magic Under Glass. Hopefully things will make more sense that way.
The other sequel I'm looking forward to is The importance of being seven, the new 44 Scotland Street novel by Alexander McCall Smith. I love Bertie and can't wait to find out what's happening in the apartment building now.
I read Always the Designer, Never the Bride by Sandra Bricker, which was also a sequel and one of my Nook freebies.
