I know I am gonna get slack for this, but I am looking forward to the newest installation of the House of Night Series. I love P.C. Cast (you know the adult romance writer) though her daughter is less my cup of tea. I have enjoyed this series since book 1. I am not gonna say it is perfect and I have a TON of issues with the characters and storyline. However I enjoy myself when I read these. It’s fun, emotional, dramatic young adult drivel that I can’t put down.
The newest one is called Revealed and it comes out October 15th 2013 from St. Martins Griffin.

I am pretty excited about this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, cause it’s about sequels. Now normally sequels give me pause, you know another ahhhh great sarcasm moment. However I have read some really good ones! Here we go! Oh by the way…this is hosted by http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.comSearch for Dragons By Patricia C Wrede. Her books wind up in my lists a lot, but they are JUST that good. In this one we follow Cimorene as she meets the King of the Enchanted Forest.
Across the Great Barrier another by Patricia C Wrede- In this novel Eff travels west across the magical barrier that protects people from the dangers that lay ahead, both magical and not.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Nuff said
The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan- I am the first to say I am tired of Zombies, and I wasn’t that into them to begin with. I really enjoyed how this kept up the story, but with new characters.
Agents of Light and Darkness- Simon R Green, again, that man can write no wrong. If you like uncanny valley creepy and dark humor please pick up his night side novels.
Game Barry Lyga- this was a super good sequel to I HUNT KILLERS, not as great as the first, but still the characters were intriguing and the plot fairly thrilling.
Fool Moon Jim Butcher, while I have lost some of my patience with Harry Dresden as of late, Fool Moon was a great sequel, nothing like urban paranormal fantasy.
Glory in Death J.D. Robb a.k.a Nora Roberts, but the writing style isn’t even close. The sequel put her hooks in me and I have been addicted to Eve Dallas and her world for years. If you want a futureistic crime novel and don’t mind a tiny bit of romance pick up the In Death series.
