Sequel September TBR 2018

I rarely do challenges. Frankly, since I’m mostly a mood reader, I rarely write TBR posts. I get so nervous and shy. Yes, I get shy. (I may not seem like it, but I am) So I just let challenges pass me by when I find a new one each month. But not this month. The lovely Kathy from Books and Munches, who I adore, is now hosting Sequel September! Do I know what to do?! No! But here I am.

I can squeeze in more books, but I’d like to have some room for non-sequels. I need variety, you know? So here are my possible choices for Sequel September:

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

I might as well rename this challenge “Maas Destruction.” I loved Batman: Nightwalker. And since Catwoman is my favourite DC villain, there’s no chance I can pass up this book.


Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

My body is not ready. I can’t read Sam’s story. I can’t. But I’ll let myself suffer. I love suffering, sniffling, and crying like a three-year-old. But I need some backstory before I move forward with Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn.


The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

I was so happy to hear Kristen was expanding her series. Caged Queen is more of a companion book, but I don’t care. I need to know what happens to Asha. I just hope I get more dragons. Please, Kristen, have more dragons in your series.


Wildcard by Marie Lu

I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT THIS BOOK. Hit me, please. I am not worthy of it. I’m not. But that cliffhanger at the end of Warcross has kept me on edge since I read it. So I need closure. I just hope it’s good.


One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

I’ve been avoiding this series like the plague even though I liked the first book. I hate two particular characters in it, but I need to get to this sequel so I can read the third. And I’m loving the whole world in the series.


Which sequels are you tackling this month? Which ones are you desperate to read? Are any of my picks on your list? Let’s chat!

  1. I really think those are all amazing choices. I can’t wait to read The Caged Queen and Wildcard. I’m actually loving that The Caged Queen was on here because I don’t see many people talking about it and I really liked the first book!

  2. Oh lord.. Sam.. You know – I read The Assassin’s Blade after the first two installments, I think? AND I WAS SO MAD. Because I was all “I need Sam. I don’t want Chaol anymore. I don’t want anyone else anymore. JUST GIMME SAM.” Took me a while to get over that, to be honest. :’)

    I’m going to read Batman next! Actually it’s already in my bag and I’m starting it during lunch, hah. Hopefully I’ll be in the mood to pick up Catwoman after that.

    WILDCARD. Warcross did my head in. That ENDING. I can only hope my copy will arrive on time and not two weeks late. I neeeed it. I’ve been waiting so long!

    Have fun with the sequels! ❤

    • I’m still salty over Chaol’s progression. I understand he was scared, but he shouldn’t have called Calaena a monster. But you know what? I’ll probably feel somewhat the same about Sam.

      Ahhh! Awesome. I hope you like it. It does have some slow parts to it.

      Same! I had to read the ending several times so it’s just sink in. I’m a little worried about some of the reviews though. 😕

      • Exactly. Calling someone a monster is one step too far, especially considering the way their relationship was going. It was.. too much, really.
        I hope it’ll bother you less than it did me though!

        I noticed! I’m over 50 pages in Batman and I’m still wondering what’s going to.. happen in this book? Hopefully it’ll pick up because I’m pretty bored with it right now.

        I purposely haven’t read a lot of reviews yet. Only one or two, I think. I just want to go in with no expectations or things I’m specifically paying attention to because of reviews. I usually only read other reviews as soon as I’ve finished a book to see whether I missed important things to comment on or not.

      • I had some warning about it when I first started the books. But reading was difficult. He was so sure he’d marry her. And then he goes off and says that. No wonder why people were so mad at that character change.

        It’s a slow lead-up to what will happen. I enjoyed the last half of the book more than I did with the first half.

        I should have done that. Hopefully, it’s better than what the reviews have said.

      • Yup. If I remember correctly, that was the exact moment I threw my book aside, cursed him for all I could think of and went to do something else for a bit until I’d cooled off. :’)

        Totally agree, although I did have some issues with the book. I loved the action-scenes – Marie Lu’s really good at writing those – but.. all other stuff was so sloooow.

        Awh; try ignoring the reviews from now on before you’re disappointed without even reading the book. 🙂


      • Bahaha, I just pictured that 😂 I don’t blame you. I wanted to smash his face in until I finished QOS.

        Agreed. She’s great with them, but I was hoping for better pacing at the beginning.

        Thankfully I haven’t seen a lot of spoilers yet.

      • Oh, you’ve no clue what weird things I’ve done because of characters NOT doing what I want them to do. Pretty sure there’ve been some times where I got genuinely pissed at my boyfriend because he was laughing at me for getting mad at a book. :’)

        Yup, same. That would’ve made it tons better. Crossing my fingers I won’t have that issue with Wildcard.

        That’s a definite plus!

      • Aaahahaha 😆 my family does that to me all the time. My mom, on the other hands, knows I’d be hard to get along with if she pulled that on me.

        I haven’t heard anything bad on the pacing in Wildcard. But time will tell though.
