    • I hope so too! I really liked the other five and then I was all caught up with the series and lost track of when United We Spy would come out. Bad Isa. But I’m really excited for it now.

  1. Awesome choices! I definitely want to read Dark Curiosity to see how the story continues and hopefully it’ll be better than the first one. Great choices! Thanks for stopping by my post :)

    • I’m definitely going to be picking that up as soon as possible. The Madman’s Daughter left me intrigued for how it all continues.

    • Thanks! It must be a coincidence because as you can see there’s plenty of series where we’ve only read one book before getting distracted by another series. :)

    • I also need to read Siege and Storm and The Madman’s Daughter since I’ve heard good things about them! Pantomime was really interesting, I hope you’ll like it too!

  2. Very cool that you guys are catching up on your series! I did something like that in December :) Now I feel better about life a little haha. Anyway I would like to read the Madman’s Daughter books and The Gallagher Girls series too!! Great picks!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT …your blog is really pretty!!

  3. I loved HER DARK CURIOSITY! Loved it! That’s one of the few series I’m current on, though :) I need to do a lot of catching up as well and definitely should have had both the second and third Marissa Meyer titles on my own list. Urgh, there’s never enough time.

    • That is good to hear! I really liked The Madman’s Daughter (my review is going up on Sunday, I think), so I’m definitely hooked for more.

      Boy, when is there ever? Time is a fickle mistress and we all need a time turner.

  4. Yay for Siege and Storm and Cress! Really enjoyed both of those. The Lunar Chronicles just keeps getting better and better. And I can’t wait to see how everything ends with Ruin and Rising! Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier!

    • My body is ready for Winter to hit the shelves. Just give it to me now. I really really need to know what happens, it’s tearing me apart. I just adore The Lunar Chronicles so much. :)

    • It is, I really love the cover designs for this series! It’s an alternate history set during the Napoleonic wars, where instead of naval battles they have aerial battles aboard dragons. The protagonists are Captain Will Laurence and his dragon Temeraire.

      • This sounds awesome. You almost never read that point in history, especially with supernatural elements. I’m going to have to check that one out. Thank you!

        • There isn’t really any magic aside from the dragons, but it is quite good. Lots of cool worldbuilding. Hope you like it if you check it out. :)

  5. What a great idea to focus on sequels. I just created a new shelf on my goodreads called “next in series” to keep me organized. I love readings series but pretty soon you feel like you are in the middle of everything and you’ve finished nothing! And you have a great pile of reading to do this spring! I definitely need to catch up with book two of Grisha series and whichever book I’m on in the Temeraire series (this is the reason for the shelf!) I just finished Cress – that is a series I’ve read all in the last month or two and now get to wait until next year…. Nice to have something to look forward to!

    • The idea of a “next in series” shelf sounds great, I might have to copy that from you! I also wouldn’t have remembered if I needed to read book #5 or #6 without Goodreads, but my series are all mixed up in my TBR pile and more often than not I end up starting a new series instead.
