2018 is slowly coming to its end. For me, it was a sad personal year, but a good one concerning books. Therefore I am both personally and bookishly happy to start over and celebrating the start of a new year. Here are the sequels I’m most excited to read in 2019!
The Wicked King by Holly Black
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
I was in love with the start of the The Folk of the Air series this summer! I had of Holly Black in in conjunction to Cassandra Clare, but had never read a book of hers. The Cruel Prince‘s ending left me breathless and therefore I cannot wait to read how Jude’s story continues!
King of Scars By Leigh Bardugo
Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way.
I read the Six of Crows duology written by Leigh Bardugo and I was stunned. And since this novel features Nina and Nikolai, who both appeared in the duology, I am extremely excited to read about their future aside from Six of Crows.
Finale by Stephanie Garber
Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun―with lives, empires, and hearts all at stake. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win…and those who will lose everything.
Even though I have only read the first Caraval novel, I am still eager to continue with this amazing series. During the holidays perhaps? With its mysterious settings, characters and stories, Caraval is full of surprises, mysteries and turning point and I definetely don’t want to miss its final round!
A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro
What once seemed like a comedy of errors is now a race to prevent the next tragedy—before Charlotte or Jamie is the next victim.
The last Charlotte Holmes novel remains a mystery to me, perhaps much like Charlotte. The last book, The Case for Jamie wasn’t as good as expected, but the first two books were brilliant. So either Brittany Cavallaro manages to recover from a bad third book like Victoria Aveyard with War Storm or she disappoints me like Maggie Stiefvater with The Raven King – but that’s just my opinion.
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
All Stevie Bell wanted was to find the key to the Ellingham mystery, but instead she found her classmate dead. And while she solved that murder, the crimes of the past are still waiting in the dark.
I had mixed feelings about Truly Devious because it wasn’t really focussing on what I was most eager to read: the Ellingham Case. And even though Stevie solved it at the end, it wasn’t quite clear to me and sadly also not in the foreground of the story. However, I am still excited to continue this mystery as I don’t often read mystery!
That was my list of all the sequels I am eager to read next year! Tell me, what are you most excited to read? Have a great day!
