Top Ten Tuesday: Best Sequels Ever

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling - The back story we get in this novel is so good.  I love that kind of thing; it gives so much insight to the characters we know and love.

2. Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan - I'm not sure if the story was any better than the first, but I love Tyson so much.  He's introduced in this book, so I have to give it some love.

3. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - I just finished this one, but I loved it.  Not only does it have a great story but it also made me very excited for the rest of the series.

4. Tales From the Hood by Michael Buckley - All The Sisters Grimm stories are cute and entertaining, but I really liked how this story played out.  There was a little bit of the Little Red Riding Hood in this book and a little bit of time travel.

5.  Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - I think that Peta and Katniss' story continues so well in this book.  I like usage of the Quarter Quell and what that means for the two victors.  I think some of the new characters are great.

6. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien - It's a prequel to the Lord of the Rings, which is kind of like a sequel, right?  I love this story and Bilbo and the whole cast of characters.  I think it's beautifully written and not too descriptive. (I know how Tolkien loves to make sure his readers see exactly what he sees.)

7. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis - Depending on which way you read them, this is a sequel.  I absolutely love this story, the wonderment of find Narnia and how Lucy draws her siblings in, making them believe.  I just love it.

8. Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I loved that the narration in this book switched from the first book.  We finally get to know what happened, If Mia survived and how everyone is handling it.

I've got a lot of sequels left to read, but I'm sure some of them will end up on this list!
