Upcoming 2012 Dystopian Fiction Sequels + Giveaway

A lot of the dystopian lit coming out these days is in the form of series books, usually trilogies, but sometimes even longer (6 books? Michael Grant? Really?).

And it can be FUN to follow a series, but it can also be frustrating to have to wait so long between books.

Which ones I am inpatiently waiting for?



I loved Lauren Oliver's DELIRIUM (read my review), so I'd drop everything to read PANDEMONIUM (add to GoodReads).  Harper Teen/March 6, 2012



Lauren DeStefano's WITHER (read my review) was lush and melancholy, and I'm excited to find out where Rhine goes next in FEVER (add to GoodReads). Simon & Schuster BFYR/Feb 21, 2012



Beth Revis' ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, an intriguing murder mystery in space, continues Amy and Elder's journey in A MILLION SUNS (add to GoodReads). Razorbill Penguin/Jan 10, 2012.



Loved the Africa setting of Michael Kinch's THE BLENDING TIME and look forward to more in THE FIRES OF NEW SUN (add to GoodReads) Flux/Jan 2012

Sequels without covers yet:  

Ann Aguirre's OUTPOST, the continuation of Deuce & Fade's adventures from ENCLAVE.  (MacMillan/Sept 2012)
Veronica Roth's INSURGENT, the second in the trilogy that began with DIVERGENT. (HarperCollins/April 28, 2012)
Paolo Bacigalupi's THE DROWNED CITIES, follow-up to SHIP BREAKER. (Little Brown/May 2012)
Megan McCafferty's THUMPED, the companion book to one of my very favorite reads this year BUMPED. (HarperCollins/2012)

And obviously, I am also excited for the 2012 sequels to books I reviewed this month including:

LEGEND by Marie Lu
ASHES by Ilsa J Bick
ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE by Gabrielle Zevin
THE PLEDGE by Kimberly Derting
SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi
BLOOD RED ROAD by Moira Young

I think I'm hooked on series ... Which sequels are you dying for?

I'm most excited for Pandemonium (!!!) and Insurgent :D

Daisy said...

I'm most excited about Pandemonium and Fever! But maybe somewhat more about Pandemonium, because OMG the ending on Delirium! That was insane!

Safari Poet said...

Looking forward to Legend.

I'm so excited about A Million Suns too!

Stephanie said...

I am most excited about Pandemonium, Insurgent, and Crossed! There are so many good dystopian trilogys out so I think I will be waiting on sequels for a long time!

Emy Shin said...

I'm very, very excited about the sequel for LEGEND as well. :)

Lori M. Lee said...

Aah, I want this book SO BADLY. Thanks so much!

Elizabeth said...

Can not wait for A Million Suns, Fever, Pandemonium, The Pledge, and Diana Peterfreund's For Darkness Shows the Stars (I loved her killer unicorn books)

Cara said...

I'm very excited for most of these as well. It's going to be a great year for dystopian series. :)

Andrea said...

Must have A Million Suns! I met Beth Revis and she rocks! Such a great sense of humor

Karen Akins said...

I am *salivating* for A Million Suns, Insurgent, and Pandemonium.

Andrea said...

Am reading a ton of YA, dystopia, and sci-fi. Am writing a YA sci-fi!

I'm very excited about both Pandemonium and Fever and The Drowned Cities. Paolo Bacigalupi is so awesome! I am still on the waiting list at the library for Divergent, for which I'm sort of glad, because I like to rip through as much of a trilogy at one time as I can! Thanks for the giveaway!

Melissa said...

I can't wait to read fever and I hope to read Across the Universe soon!!

I've got five of those books you listed on my wish list, and I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be one of the winners of A Million Suns! Across the Universe was one of my favorites this year!

Pam (@iwriteinbooks) said...

Gosh, I don’t even know where to begin my excitement, here. I’m pumped about Insurgent and Pandemonium (LOVE the cover). I also need to read Enclave and Withered but maybe I’ll wait until I can get my hands on the sequels back to back. Thanks for this. Super!

Zibilee said...

I am also really looking forward to Fever and A Million Suns and Pandemonium as well. Lots of great stuff coming out. I just wish it was sooner!

Sophie said...

I'm looking forward to all of those and especially A Million Suns. Wonderful post. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Jessi said...

There are simply too many absolutely fabulous 2012 sequels coming out to choose just one or two or five! I had to start a list on GR just to keep track of all of them!

Ems said...

I'm looking forward to SO many of these books! I'm reading Across the Universe right now and LOVING it. I simply must read A Million Suns!

Jessy said...

I'm really looking forward to Crossed. There are so many, it's hard to choose what to read next!

Lucy said...

I hadn't heard of Thumped, the companion to Bumped.
I'm most excited to read Pandemonium, Fever, and Insurgent.
And I really want to see what happens in the sequel to Blood Red Road.
Next year is going to be amazing!

Emily said...

I'm excited for Thumped and Insurgent, but most of all for Legend to finally come out!

shirleytemple83 said...

Definitely A Million Suns!!

Lily Child said...

Awesome list! Looking forward to most of these! :)

SusieBookworm (Susanna) said...

*Jumps up and down ecstatically about giveaway* !!!! That's definitely the one I'm most excited about, not that the others aren't great, either...

Anna said...

Gah - even before I got to the end of your post, 'A Million Suns' was at the top of my must read sequels list, so, fingers crossed! Also looking forward to Bacigalupi's Drowned Cities.

'Across the Universe' and 'Ship Breaker' are two of my favorite #yalit reads this year.

I'm super excited about Insurgent!

lizakane said...

I'm looking forward to SO many sequels: Insurgent, A Million Suns, Pandemonium, Drowned Cities...I'm probably missing some, but those are just off the top of my head!

Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

Kerri Cuev said...

Oh yes A Million Suns!!

Michelle said...

You KNOW I'm all about the series. I'm totally down with almost every one of these books. Those I'm not it's simply because I haven't started them yet. Give it time and I may be on board with them as well.
