I read a fair amount so it goes without saying that one of my greatest joys is hearing the news that an author I like is writing a new book. Even better is when that new book is a sequel! There’s a certain anticipation that avid readers will quickly identify with this type of news. Symptoms of said anticipation might include re-reading the prior titles in the series, displays of elated joy, and in some cases incessant chattering about unresolved plotlines.
I read an interesting article about books that are being published lately which are sequels to books published 5, 10, even 20 years ago -- quite different from the usual publish-one-book-a-year cycle we see lately. At least one of these (Unwind!) I have been waiting most anxiously for.
Have you read any of these? Will a new sequel motivate you to go back and read or re-read the first book?
