Waiting on Wednesday #15

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we can spotlight those books that are not yet published but that we are eagerly anticipating.

Dystopian sequels!
There are so many sequels coming out soon of some of my favourite books of last year.

  • I can't wait to read Insurgent by Veronica Roth. This is the sequel to Divergent. This dystopian novel was such a great read and ended on a bit of a cliff-hanger. Action packed and I loved the romance- bring it on!
This is due to be published in May 2012

  • I'm also dying to read Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver- the sequel to another amazing dystopian novel Delirium which also ended on a massive cliff-hanger. Imagine a world where love is considered to be a dangerous sickness.
This is the rather bland looking UK Cover which I'm really disappointed with compared to the gorgeous US Cover. It's also coming out here a month later (grrr- even longer to wait!)
This is due to be published in March 2012 (UK) and February 2012 (US)

  • Due out in July this year is Once- sequel to Eve by Anna Carey, set years after a deadly plague has wiped out most of the population. I really liked this book, and seeing sheltered, naive Eve grow up and find her own way. Another romantic one- where Eve and Caleb find each other and lose each other, find each other and lose each other again.

  • Also out later this year (but no cover images yet) is Shadows- the sequel to the incredible novel Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick (Goodreads), which I loved and am still thinking about months down the line- I want NEED to know what happens next!
  • Book 3 in the Birthmarked series by Caragh O'Brien. I love this series so much! Book 1 was Birthmarked, book 2 is Prized and although there is no cover image yet book 3 is titled Promised and is due to be published in Autumn 2012. (Goodreads)
  • And finally, book 3 in the Matched series by Ally Condie. (Goodreads). This is due to be published in November 2012, but as yet doesn't have even a title yet. Book 1 in the series was Matched, and I'm currently reading book 2 Crossed and loving it.
There are so many other fantastic looking dystopian novels for me to catch up on in the meantime! I really want to read Wither by Lauren DeStephano- and the sequel Fever is also due out this year, and I also have Bumped by Megan McCafferty on my shelf still to read. It's sequel Thumped is due out very soon.
