Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This was HARD! I was originally planning of only having books which I felt surpassed the original but I struggled with that so these are just sequels which I really like. I've ended up with a list which will surprise no-one - I think I've probably mentioned my love for all of these series' several times before! For that reason, I'm not going to comment on each book individually but have instead included a quote which sums up my favourite aspect of each of them (consider this a spoiler warning!).

| The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman (His Dark Materials #2)|
The fact was that where Will is concerned, she was developing a new kind of sense, as if he were simply more in focus than anyone she'd known before. Everything about him was clear and close and immediate.
| Demonglass (aka. Raising Demons) by Rachel Hawkins (Hex Hall #2)|
"Beg to differ, Mercer."
| Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter #5)|
"I DON'T CARE!" Harry yelled at them, snatching up a lunascope and throwing it into the fireplace. "I'VE HAD ENOUGH, I'VE SEEN ENOUGH, I WANT OUT, I WANT IT TO END, I DON'T CARE ANYMORE!"
| The FitzOsbornes in Exile by Michelle Cooper (The Montmaray Journals #2)|
“Simon called you 'Machiavelli disguised as a debutante.'" "Gosh," I said, not sure whether to feel flattered or insulted."
Agree? Disagree? Want to fight it out over Order of the Phoenix?!
