Just One Year by Gayle Forman
I’m just diving into this volume after having devoured Just One Day. Gayle Forman, you build some really awesome characters.
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Princess managed to deliver (boy did it!) even when I was certain it would crush my soul. I have every hope City of Heavenly Fire will give me equally as emotional and satisfying an experience (Magnus + Alec 4eva).
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Many of you have probably already snagged a copy and know the ending (lucky!!) but I am patiently waiting for my library to tell me it’s my turn! The world building seemed implausible to me, but I’m totally committed to Tris and Four.
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I’m currently reading Lola and the Boy Next Door, which isn’t really my jam, but I loved how real Anna and the French Kiss felt- Perkins really captures the confusion and awkwardness of first love.
The One by Kiera Cass
While I have expressed my mixed feelings on The Selection series, I need to know what happens to Max.
Champion by Marie Lu
The third and final installment of the Legend Trilogy. While I know June and Day have to end up together, I have grown a fondness for the Elector.
Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
THIS BOOK CANNOT COME SOON ENOUGH! It was due out this October, only to be moved to June 2014 (NOOOOOO!). There’s no point in even trying to write a reasonable paragraph for this one- there is too much unresolved mystery and tension wrapped up in this series. I’m desperate to finish it out.
I know I’ve cheated with only 7 picks, but these are the only series I’m in the middle of right now! I look forward to seeing your lists for inspiration of other series and sequels I should be reading!
