Top Ten Tuesday: Top ten Sequels I'm Dying to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Sequels I'm Dying to Read
I read a great deal of series, I seem to get stuck in some long ones, so this will be repeated somewhat from last week's list.

1. The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan I preordered it last summer, but have yet to read it.
2. A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon My next one in the series. There was a mention of Jaime and Clare in Into the Wilderness, and I've been wanting to pick it up since.
3. Dawn on a Distant Shore by Sara Donati I pretty much inhaled Into the Wilderness when I checked it out. So when I found a near mint copy of the second book at the library sale, I snatched it up.
4. A Clash of Kings by G.R.R. Martin Been itching to pick this up since the tv series ended
5. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness A Discovery of Witches is still my favorite book that I've read this year. I am eagerly awaiting release of the second book hopefully next summer.
6. Crossed by Ally Condie Loved Matched, so this will be one of the highlights of November.
7. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini Been looking forward to the end of this series.
8. I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett Wintersmith was one of the first Discworld books read, and probably part of the reason I picked up Wicked Lovely. This was one of my Borders finds.
9. Beat to Quarters by C.S. Forester I have a thing for Regency set military. The Hornblower series was one of the first I started, but I haven't read any since I started using Shelfari. I've had this since then, but haven't read it.
10. A Murderous Procession by Ariana Franklin I love the Mistress of the Art of Death series. Its like the book (and original) Temperance Brennan set in the medieval period. This is the final book in the series, unless another is discovered in Diana Norman's papers, since she died earlier this year.

Crossed tops my list! I'm first in line at the library for it. You've got to read the rest of the books in the Wilderness series! Dawn on a Distant Shore is probably my least fave, but it's still a solid 4-star read.
