September is for Sequels Giveaway Hop




September is for Sequels Giveaway Hop

This hop celebrates sequels, be they number 2 or 42.   

Hosted by Lisa Loves Literature and I'm a Reader, Not a Writer.


I love sequels.  After all, if you find a book that you like, don't you want to know what else happens after you finish it?  What comes next? Even if they ride off into the sunset of their Happily Ever After, I want to check in on them and make sure everything is still rainbows and ice cream sprinkles.

One of my favorite series recently released a new book; number 9, as a matter of fact. I am talking about Heart of Venom in the Elemental Assassins series by Jennifer Estep.  If you haven't read this series, you are totally missing out.


To encourage you, I am offering any one of the books, numbers 2 through 9, in the series from the BookDepository.  And just in case you are a fan, like myself, I am willing to do a pre-order on book 10, The Spider, which will be released at the end of the year.




Don't forget to check out the other amazing stops on this hop.

  6. Harry Dresden for the win. I have re-read these books so many times it's not even funny. But you can tell that it's so well thought out when you can go back and read book 4 again and notice hints about things that happened in book 12. Just amazing.

  7. My favorite series is The League by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It's urban fantasy and it has a little bit of everything...romance, action and humor.

    ReplyDelete

  12. I love all of Karen Chance's stuff and how she has taken all 3 series she writes and interwoven them. Awesome! Patricia Briggs is one of the few authors on my keeper shelf. Have you tried the Alpha and Omega series yet?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, me too! My Waiting on Wednesday pick is One Lucky Vampire, the next book in the series.

  14. I tried to read this. I really did. I got the series for my nephew, but I just couldn't get past the fact that I felt too old reading it. Thanks for hopping with us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, a second vote for the Unravel me series. I must really need to check it out.

    ReplyDelete

  20. I love all Karen Chance's series and I do enjoy Alpha & Omega series along with her fantasy stuff too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That would be The Others series by Anne Bishop. Written in Red, the first book, is one of the best books I've read in a long time. BTW, it an UF series and it's dark and gritty.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, I know. I didn't even like it, but I watched the whole season anyway, and I'm considering watching it again just to get a Dresden fix....

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Fallen Star series by Jessica Sorensen was amazing .. every book fell into another and the story plot got better and better.. sometimes shocking.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the Shatter Me series cause the writing is beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  29. The most recent series that I really enjoyed were Veneficas Americana by M. K. Hobson. It's kind of steampunk with magic and witches, and also alternate history. I wouldn't have picked them up, as I don't usually read steampunk, but I won the three first books in this series in a giveaway, and they're really impossible to put down. The world is very imaginative, events are unpredictable, and I just kept turning the pages, because I really cared about the characters. I can't wait for the fourth book.

  30. I love the Hollows by Kim Harrison and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. They both are dark and gritty, and they both have amazing world building!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I loved the Gunslinger Series by Stephen King, and the Body Farm series by Dr. Bass, and Janet Evanovich's series. The Gunslinger series has everything from outstanding world building and great character development to drama, heartbreak, laughter, the gamut. Janet Evanovich brings interesting situations to murder mysteries. I love her style. Thanks for the opportunity to win. michelle_willms@yahoo.com

  32. I really can’t just pick one….I love the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, the Chronicles of Elantra series by Michelle Sagara, The Others series by Anne Bishop, Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane, Black London by Caitlin Kittredge, the In Death series by J.D. Robb and the Alex Craft series by Kalayna Price. The reason why is the same reason why I love the Gin Blanco series -- they all have strong female protagonists who can take care of themselves and kick some butt along the way!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The Night Huntress series is amazing and I've heard that it's coming to an end. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Two of my personal favorite series are Vampire Academy (Richelle Mead) and Night Huntress (Jeaniene Frost) but the list after these two is endless. I prefer reading series so I have a lot of favorites...
    Thanks for the great giveaway. I haven't actually read book one of this series but I'm really excited about it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh noes!!!! That is a great series. Kat and Bones make an amazing couple. And the spin offs have been wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I read Richelle Mead's Dark Swan series and it wasn't bad. I have heard good things about the Vampire Academy books. Aren't they thinking of making them into a movie or tv series? As for the Elemental Assassin books, you really should give them a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Those all sound like very interesting YA reads. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Fever series by Karen Moning. I love this series. So interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Some of my favorite series are the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward, the Dark (Carpathian) series by Christine Feehan, and the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill. Fascinating world building in paranormal romance/urban fantasy. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yeah, they are turning the VA series into movies. As for the Elemental Assassin books, I've seen them and I have them on my to-read list but I have no idea when I'll get the chance to buy book one :( I hope it's soon because the first book does sound great.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Must I single one out? There are so many! I guess I am anxious for Davis Bunn to do his next sequel. Unlimited was very good.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love the Lunar Chronicles, it's classic and original and awesome. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I tried to get into this series since my sister was a fan, but it just did nothing for me. Thanks for the suggestion though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am a fan of all of those except for the Chicagoland Vampires. My sister has been nagging me to read them, I just haven't found the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Holy Smokes, an author I haven't heard of! I will check him out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have heard good things about the series and am completely intrigued by the cover of Cinder. I have it marked on Goodreads as a reminder, but so far haven't done much about it.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks for stopping by and giving me a suggestion, but there are 3 different books called The Circles Trilogy on Goodreads. I need an author. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews is a must read. It has snarky humor, romance, and amazing adventures. To me this is the best PN/UF series out there.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The Iron Fey and In Death series! They are both wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I LOVE the Kate Daniels series. Aw, hell, I love everything that Ilona & Gordon have written. (I even stalk their blog!)

    ReplyDelete
  63. The In Death series is a HUGE fave of mine. Are you as excited as I am about the 17th and the new novel? Nora has the first chapter up on her website and it ROCKS!!!


    I'm not a fan of YA, but someone else also mentioned The Iron Fey series as being worth a read. For a fellow In Death fan, I might have to check it out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. The Lux series and The Covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I really love the Stewart Realty series, from Liz Crowe. The characters seem very real-life to me.

    ReplyDelete
  66. If I was into YA, I believe that these would be 2 series that I would be diving into. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I just checked this series out on Goodreads. WOW. They really sound like they cover the gamut of emotions and relationship issues. I do like series that keep you in touch of previous characters. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. You should give it a try! You can get a taste with a free download of HOUSE RULES, The Jack Gordon backstory at http://www.sizzlin-books.com/house_rules
