Top Ten Tuesday - Best Sequels

Top Ten Tuesday is sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is Top Ten Best Sequels. I'm going a little old school on this one for most of the list because most of the books I've read recently either have been stand alone, or book 2 hasn't come out yet. So, really in no particular order, here they are: 

  • Newford Series by Charles de Lint - Memory and Dream
  • Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams - So Long and Thanks for All the Fish
  • Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz - Forever Odd
  • Last Herald Mage trilogy by Mercedes Lackey - Magic's Promise
  • The Sword Dancer Saga by Jennifer Roberson - Sword-Singer
  • The Belgariad by David Eddings - Queen of Sorcery
  • Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mysteries series - Curse of the Pharoahs
  • Southern Sisters' mysteries by Anne George - Murder on a Bad Hair Day
  • Cherry Tucker mysteries by Larissa Reinhart - Still Life in Brunswick Stew
  • Liz Talbot mysteries by Susan M. Boyer - Lowcountry Bombshell
What are your favorite sequels?


  1. I loved The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy but have yet to read the series. great list!

  2. So long and thanks for all the fish is the name of my blog! That being said, I wasn't a huge fan of the later sequels (when I named my blog I had picked it from a quote in the first book, having forgotten it was the name of the 4th book somehow haha)

    1. I liked that one because Arthur achieves some happiness for a while with Fenchurch. Otherwise, I agree none of the sequels really come close to the first book.
