Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On

"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish". Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

November 5: Top Ten Sequels I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On

Not many sequels that I am waiting for the authors to write or the publishers to sell except for:

The third book of the Ibis Trilogy by Amitav Ghosh: "Flood of Fire" - 2015
Sequel to:
Ghosh, Amitav "Sea of Poppies" (Ibis Trilogy #1) - 2008
Ghosh, Amitav "River of Smoke" (Ibis Trilogy #2) - 2011

The reason is probably that I am not reading the kind of books that produce many sequels. But there are a few that are out and I have not yet read them. If only I could buy the time to read a book with the book.

Aaronovitch, Ben "Moon over Soho" (Rivers of London 2) - 2011

If ever she wrote one, a sequel to:
Stroyar, J.N. "The Children's War" and "A Change of Regime" - 2002/2004

Turner, Nancy E. "The Star Garden: A Novel of Sarah Agnes Prine" - 2007
Sequel to:

Turner, Nancy E. "Sarah’s Quilt. A Novel of Sarah Agnes Prine and the Arizona Territories, 1906" - 2006

Looks like I ought to improve my Spanish!!!

And then there are the authors of which I would like to read everything ... or more if only they wrote more. Isabel Allende, Bill Bryson, Charles Frazier, Kate Grenville, David Guterson, Victoria Hislop, Khaled Hosseini, Barbara Kingsolver, Wally Lamb, Mary Lawson, Pascal Mercier, Toni Morrison, Joyce Carol Oates, Orhan Pamuk, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Edward Rutherfurd, Vikram Seth, Jane Smiley, Lalita Tademy, Nancy E. Turner, Alice Walker, Stefanie Zweig 

Classics: Jane Austen, The Brontë Sisters, Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Thomas Mann, Mary Scott, John Steinbeck, Leonid Tolstoy. In most of these cases, I just have to read the remainder of their work but in some of them, I have read all of their work and would have loved for them to write more.


  1. Thank you, Kelley. Just the one that I am really waiting for. I just checked your entry and see you have a few more than ten. ;-)

    Hope they will be published soon, too.

    Have a good day,

  2. If Oscar Wilde rose from the dead and wrote so much as a short story, I'd be blissing out :-)

  3. And Dickens was so ahead of his time - in regard to his keen sense of social justice - it would be a delight to see what he'd choose to write about today. And HOW he'd write (hopefully just as beautifully, but perhaps a tiny bit more tightly edited!)

  4. Both of them great authors, Marianne. I haven't mentioned Oscar Wilde on my list because I have read quite a few of his works adn I prefer to read books rather than plays. Still, he is a wonderful authro and I would have loved to read something he wrote today. And Charles Dickens, definitely, I need to read more Charles Dickens.
