For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, the theme is best-ever sequels. This is a hard one…as we all know, sequels don’t always compare to the epicness of the first book in a series.
And, actually, this one was so difficult for me, that I had to kind of cheat and only pick 8 books for you. I decided to do this partly because I have read so few sequels, and also partly because I just feel like it cheapens the point of the whole “top ten” thing if I end up choosing books that I didn’t like as much just to fill up the list.
So, in this list, I only included books I rated either 4 or 5 stars, and I didn’t include more than one book in the same series (because I don’t really think that counts).
