Favorite Book Sequels!!!

Giving love to my favorite *second* books

1. Catching Fire (The Hunger Games)

Probably my favorite sequel of all time. Like other sequels, it really benefits from having already acquainted the reader with the story world and gets right to the meat of the story.

2. Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles)

The second installment of The Lunar Chronicles isn't necessarily my favorite of the series, however it's still excellent. A great take on the classic Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale.

3. A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

I thought I loved the first book in this series, then I read this. It's got its problems, but honestly one of my all-time favorite sequels.

4. Pandemonium (Delirium Trilogy)

A lot of series suffer from a "second book slump" -- not so with Pandemonium, which is easily the strongest book of the Delirium Trilogy.

5. Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices)

While the last book in this series is my favorite of the Infernal Devices trilogy, Clockwork Prince did an excellent job building the series arc and is very solid in and of its own right.
