Reading Challenge: Sequel Spring

So I'm a little worried that I'm not going to have Spring Into Reading coming up this year.  I haven't heard anything about it from the new host of this very informal, relaxed reading challenge.  However, I may have found something to fill in for me - Sequel Spring.

As the name implies, the focus is on reading sequels during the Spring.  (Shocking, I know.)  It runs from March 20th to June 20th.

Now, I have quite a few firsts on my To Be Read pile.  However, I also have several sequels I can't wait to get to.  Additionally, I have books by favorite authors in their series coming out that I can't wait to read.  So even if I do get to some of those firsts, I think I'll be fine for this challenge as well.

I'm not going to stress over the challenge.  I'm going to say I will read 6 sequels for sure, or half of what I expect to read this Spring.  It may wind up being more.  It may be less.  We'll just have to see.

Naturally, I'll fill in titles and link up my reviews as I go along.
