How’s your week? I got sunburnt on Saturday and started new medicine on Sunday so I hate it here. But also I finally started Cemetery Boys for my first book tour and I really like it so far!! I’ve only read two chapers but I love Yadriel!!
#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
This week’s prompt is Sequels!
Are you a type to read a series back to back or you pick up the first book and then wait for ages to start second? I’m somewhere in the middle, I guess. So here’s five sequels I haven’t gotten to yet.
|| The Night Masquerade by Nnedi Okorafor ||
💛 knowledge-hungry girl
💛 tradition vs progres
I’ve read book 1 and bok 2 so long ago I have no idea why I’ve never gotten to the third.
Binti is a sweet and super smart girl who sacrifices her place in her culture to study in an intergalactic university only to met further complications on the way. But she’s courageous and intelligent and sensitive so she can deal with it, right?
|| The Storm of Life by Amy Rose Capetta ||
💛 genderfluid MCs
It’s a sequel to one of my most favourite novels and to be honest, I’m just afraid to read it.
What if it’s not as good as the first one?? What if it spoils the 1st book for me?
I need to read it soon though because I’m dying to see how it ends.
|| The Tyrant’s Tomb by Rick Riordan
💛 bi MC
💛 abuse victims
Again, I have some predictions I don’t like and I’m afraid of reading it because I think I know where it goes.
I will read it at some point though! I liked the series so far and I need to see how it ends even if I won’t like some parts.
Also, I need to know Meg’s safe ❤
|| Stormsong by C.L. Polk ||
💛 dreamlike writing style
I loved the first book with all its dreamy atmosphere so I’m curious to read this one.
But also it’s about a character I didn’t like much in the first book so even this being sapphic may not fix it for me. I’ll need a huge character development for her if I’m to enjoy this one.
|| The Iron Temple by Ginn Hale
💛 time shenanigans
💛 complex worldbuilding
I’m reading it for my friend and I have!! TWO!! MORE!! BOOKS!!
Seriously, I’ve read eight and then got stuck because I’m at that point in the dual timeline where I know what will happen and I so don’t want it to happen!! I need to brave on and finish it finally…
I know it’s random but do you guys still play Pokemon GO? I just redownloaded it yesterday and maybe it will motivate me to go out more. Wanna be friends?
- Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
- Do you have any of those on your TBR?
- Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
