To celebrate we got Mandy to tell us her top 10 favourite sequels!
10. Dragonfly in Amber, the sequel to Outlander by Diana Galbadon
Claire’s spellbinding journey continues in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Edward Stuart, in a race to thwart a doomed uprising, and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.
Who doesn’t love a strapping man in a kilt, especially one who will give his life for you! And that chest, swoon!!!
9. Bridget Jones the Edge of Reason sequel to Bridget Jones’s Diary
I think we can all relate to her in some way or another
8. Untamed Cowboy sequel to Smooth-Talking Cowboy by Maisey Yates
Shy tomboy Kaylee Capshaw never thought she’d have a chance of winning the heart of her longtime friend, Bennett Dodge, even if he is the cowboy of her dreams. But when she learns he’s suddenly single, can she finally prove to him that the woman he’s been waiting for has been right here all along?
It’s not “technically” a sequel, but as Maisey Yates returns to the romantic world of Gold Valley Oregon we can’t help but follow her….
7. Fifty Shades Darker sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey
No words needed! Is it hot in here?
6. New Moon sequel to Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
I’m not a vampire buff but I adore the love story that unfolds throughout this series.
5. The Sweetest Secret sequel to Bittersweet by Jacqui Underdown
When Ellie arrives in town and discovers Sam’s backyard nursery, a shared professional interest soon blossoms into something that feels very personal. But Ellie needs time to rediscover herself, and Sam has never regained his confidence. When they are both tied so strongly to the past, could there be a chance for a future?
4. Anne of the Island sequel to Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
Eighteen-year-old Anne has left Green Gables for university in nearby Nova Scotia, where she will finally fulfill her dream of earning a degree. She sets up home in a cozy cottage in bustling Kingsport with Avonlea’s Priscilla Grant and a new friend, the beautiful Philippa Gordon. But it’s not all fun and games. Anne’s childhood friend, Ruby Gillis, dies of tuberculosis back in Avonlea, shattering Anne’s carefree attitude to life, and Gilbert finally declares his feelings and proposes. But Anne still has a naïve, overly romantic view of love and rejects him, driving a wedge between them. A two-year relationship with a fellow Redmond College student, Roy Gardner, follows, but when he also proposes, Anne realizes that he’s not the one for her after all. When she returns to Avonlea and learns that Gilbert is deathly ill with typhoid, she is distraught. Will she recognize the depth of her feelings at last? Or is it already too late for Anne and her one true love?
Although this is *technically* book 3 of the series, it’s the one where *SPOILER ALERT*- Anne and Gilbert Blythe FINALLY declare their love for each other!
3. Still Me & After Me sequels to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
