                    First, OMG YES SCARLETT! Second, I got a copy of Rot & Ruin at BEA and I am PSYCHED to read it.

                      Scarlet! I am SO excited. When ARCs of that start going out and I inevitably don’t get one, I will WEEP tears of blood. Or, you know, not. BUT STILL.

                      Rot & Ruin is good fun!

                    WHAT? ALL OF THESE ARE SEQUELS/SERIES BOOK!
                    I’m excited for them…just to join the party. But I can’t read them without reading their previous books. andiamsuchashamefullyslowreader.

                    *sigh*

                    Guess who won a copy of the UK edition of Throne of Glass? *points to self while tap dancing*

                    Lilian @ A Novel Toybox

                    • Christina says:

                      LUCKY! The UK version is SO much prettier!

                    • Lilian says:

                      It is badass! Now I have to read the prequel ebooks first! Since I have to wait at least a month to get here.
                      I hope it doesn’t get lost in transit. *sigh*

                    • Christina says:

                      PREQUEL EBOOKS. *smashes tables, chairs, vases, anything in the vicinity*

                      Those make me SO DAMN MAD. I want to read them, but I’m not going to be 5 bucks or whatever for ebooks, when ebooks feel fake to me. They should just make them into an actual book so I can borrow it at the damn library. Besides, the few ebook prequels or novellas I’ve gotten free and read have been marginally good at best. I HATE THIS TREND.

                    • Lilian says:

                      I agree! I guess it’s a great way for authors to earn money for the scraps and pieces that didn’t make the cut for print. (which would totally explain the “marginally good” part)

                      I need to get to reading Dan Well’s Isolation soon, it’s a prequel novella for Partials. And while I wasn’t too pleased with the John Cleaver series, I still have hope for the Partials series.

                      It’s not so much the price, but it’s just my laziness when it comes to ebooks.

                      As for borrowing it from the library…*thinks of Free Four…which was like four pages* waste of paper and ink?

                    • Christina says:

                      Right? Ugh. If they’re free on Kindle to drum up interest, I am cool with it. As a promotion, all good. As a way to make me spend money on something subpar, WRATH.

                      I still need to read Partials.

                      Oh man, I download SO MANY free Kindle books and haven’t read a single one thus far.

                      Well, if the library had digital options or something. I am not surprised that Free Four was shitty.

                  4. I’m totally with you on Fuse and Scarlet!!

                  5. Ok, I am just gonna sit here all day and drool, I want them all. I did get a bit of a Partial fix..i read Isolation last night and will post a review for it Monday! Thanks for stopping by My WoW

                  6. Adriana says:

                    I haven’t read any of the first of these. I feel so unaccomplished…

                  7. M.A.D. says:

                    Oh Christina, I’m with Kimba and could sit here staring at those covers & getting *drool* all over my keyboard. I WANT THEM ALL *cue maniacal book-addict laughter* mwha ha ha ha!!! ;D

                    Obviously, one of us is going to have to win the lottery then share with the others because I MUST read these – especially Outpost, Shadows and Dance of the Red Death <3

                  8. I haven’t read a single on of these first books. A bunch of them are on my TBR though, of course. 🙁

                  9. I am waiting on Shadows! Thank goodness I only discovered Ashes recently, so I haven’t had to wait so long for the sequel! I haven’t read the others, but I’m sure I will get to them! My daughter liked Across the Universe.

                  10. Breaking Point, Scarlet and Fuse are all ones that I am pining to read! The first books were all some of my favorites of this year

                  11. Lynn K. says:

                    Dearly, Beloved, Scarlet, Fuse and Rebel Heart! I’ve been meaning to read Article 5 and Birthmarked but never got around to it. >.>

                  12. Carla says:

                    Great list! I’m looking foward to a lot of those books as well. 🙂

                  13. roro says:

                    fuse , aaaah , breaking point , aaah, shades of earth AAAh, and through the ever night . AAAAAH

                  14. I cannot wait for Through the Ever Night! I can’t believe there are so many books on this list that I haven’t read the first for. So much to read, not enough time.

                  15. mckaykelly says:

                    what i wouldn’t give to read THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT right now! ah!!
