Book 2 in Phillip Ness’ Chaos Walking series is set for May. I liked everything about book 1 The Knife of Never Letting Go except the brutal letdown of the cliffhanger ending (read my review), so I am eagerly awaiting The Ask and the Answer.
This is the cover for Australia and New Zealand (the only one online right now). Here's a short teaser:
Tense, shocking and deeply moving, "The Ask and the Answer" is a terrifying novel of resistance under the most extreme pressure.
The second book in PJ Bracegirdle’s Joy of Spooking trilogy is also due this summer. According to the official website, book 2 will have us
“discovering the sinister history hidden behind the spiked-lined walls of the mental asylum and descending into the dark underworld below Spooking's streets.”
No cover art yet – but I wonder if Nicoletta Ceccoli is doing it again. (Here's my review of Book 1).
Goodess Boot Camp, the sequel to Oh.My.Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs is due in June. It’s described as
“another fast-paced myth-inspired heroine’s quest that’s sure to bring out the goddess in anyone.”
I liked Oh.My.Gods. (here's my review) and hopefully this sequel will improve on it.
And then there are the series where I own book 1 and have been waiting for book 2 so I can read them together:
Wake by Lisa McMann. Fade* comes out in February.
Evernight by Claudia Gray. Stargazer comes out in March.
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong. The Awakening comes out in April.
Generation Dead by Daniel Waters. Kiss of Life* comes out in May.
Skin Hunger by Kathleen Duey. Sacred Scars comes out in August.
Skinned by Robin Wasserman. Crashed comes out in September.
*Technically shouldn't be on this list because I actually have them already, but whatever...
What sequels (YA or otherwise) coming out this year are you most excited about?
