The Most Anticipated Sequels of Spring

Posted by Sharon on March 16, 2020
Flowers, birds, and sunshine all return in the spring, and so do many of our favorite book series with their next installments. Some of this season's most-anticipated books are the second, third, or—in one case—nineteenth title in a beloved series.

How do we measure that anticipation? In this case, we looked at how many Goodreads members added a book to their Want to Read shelf and the overall popularity of the series based on number of reader reviews.

Yes I do flag spammers but just replying with the word ‘spam’ in your comment works, too, and it’s more fun

Great! I notice GR is pretty swift at removing these things after I flag them but I can't understand why they just won't run comments through a simple spam filter and block these bad ones or at least route them to the GR staff who started this article for review and approval

message 22: by Menion (new)

Menion This list blows. Know why? How the hell can there be a list of anticipated sequels without the newest Katie Maguire novel on the list?! 'The Last Drop of Blood' comes out in a few weeks, and it will be book 11 in the greatest detective series of all time. If you haven't read them, you are missing out.

John Hartigan ONCE AGAIN,NO TRUE CRIME BOOKS. WHAT GIVES??
