I really want to talk about sequels. A lot of times, the sequel gets a bad rep, especially in a trilogy. But nowadays the duology is the new hip thing and I personally freaking love it! So I would love to share with you all some sequels that I loved, some perfect duologies, and a few upcoming sequels that I am eagerly anticipating!
But first, I need to clear the air…some of my more recent features have been inspired by the Brooding YA Hero Street Team! If you haven’t heard, the twitter sensation the Brooding YA Hero, is now going to be a book! Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me by Carrie Ann DiRisio so add it to your TBR or preorder it now!
Gemina (Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – Just go ahead and kill me already! This series will make and break you! No sophomore book slump here!
A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2) by Sabaa Tahir – I am pretty sure Elias took lessons from Broody as he is the broodiest YA hero ever in this installment!
Siege and Storm (Shadow and Bone #2) by Leigh Bardugo – Some people still thought there was a little too much journey in this middle book of the trilogy, but not for me. I was hooked from start to finish!
Traitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2) by Alwyn Hamilton – This sequel stood its ground! Wow! I am officially in love with this series!

Stand Out Duologies:
Riders & Seeker by Veronica Rossi – I loved, loved, loved this series! So different but so good and yes if you follow me on goodreads you know I had to back-burner finishing Seeker but it has nothing to do with the book, just my blog commitments, but almost finished and my feelings will not change!
The Untitled sequel to Caraval by Stephanie Garber – I believe this is going to be a duology as well!!! Ahhh can’t wait…but I have to wait until some unknown date (most likely 2018)!
Robot Army (Boy Robot #2) by Simon Curtis – How do I keep going until 2018…I am still thinking about Boy Robot!
