Now obviously I don't have an actual fear of sequels, but I do try to avoid reading them. Idk why I never want to read them...but I just don't. No matter how much I LOVE a book...I will still put off reading the sequel for well...a long ass time. I think the reason I don't ever want to pick sequels up is solely because I am worried it will ruin the series or it won't live up to my expectations. So this year I want to put an end to me putting off sequels and actually continue series I love!

In my Monthly Wrap Up posts (that I'm going to start doing again) I will put any progress I have made on any of my reading challenges (:

Here are some sequels I hope to read this year, 
I want to read more then this, but this is at least a start (:

Sooo there you have it!!! These are some of the sequels I hope to get done this year (and more) I am really excited to hopefully finally continue some series that I fell in love with (: fingers crossed all these books end up awesome!

Another reading challenge I am doing is to try new things, meaning just trying some books that are outside of my usual genre below are a few I am going to try out (: 


I'm excited to try these out, I have already ordered The Snow Child so hopefully will read that one soon! (:

So those are my 2 reading challenges, the major one being the sequels. (:

What are your 2013 reading challenges?!!? 

Leave a comment below! (:

Huh? I think Endure is further on... It goes Need, Captivate, Entice... Maybe it's called Endure where you are? Hmm...

Great challenge's hun. I totally agree, you do need to catch up on some of these sequels...*hint hint* Pure, Deity, Elixir. =)

I'm going the TBR Reading Challenge 2013 hosted by Evie @ Bookish. I just want to read some of them books that I have had FOREVER plus the ones you've gifted me =)

Good Luck!! <3

I'm really bad for just reading the first and not putting the sequels on my book schedule! I'm making more of an effort to read sequels this year too :) At least 2 or 3 follow ups a month. I think I do it because I'm not 100% sure if I will like the first book.

Game of Thrones is GREAT! I'm reading A Clash of Kings right now :)

I have so many series I need to finish. For most of them I have probably read the first 2 or 3 but then I start something else and don't make it back to it. I am hoping to finish some series this year.

@Charli sequels aren't just the second book in the series! (: Any book after book one is a sequel (:

Ida said...

My reading challenge is to read all the books I bought last year :)

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I need to read quite a few of those sequels too! Supernaturally was good!
I'm doing a couple of challenges this year - self-published writers, british books, and tbr pile :)

Aw, I hope your avoidance of sequels decreases this year. I'm rarely disappointed by sequels. It's a cute challenge though. I'm participating in three challenges: New Adult, Seriously Series, and Feminist Reads.
