Monday Musings: YA Sci-Fi Duologies and Companion Novels


Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of duology series – 2 books only – instead of trilogies. This seems to be specifically for science fiction in YA. There are also some “series” composed of companion novels – novels set in the same (or a similar) universe, but not following the same exact storyline as the first book.

I absolutely love this trend. I wish that more genres of YA would follow it.

Below are a bunch of YA sci-fi duologies & companion novel series. I’ve read all of them, or at least the first book in the series, and absolutely loved them all!

Entangled (Entangled, #1) Unmade (Entangled #2)

Avalon (Avalon, #1) Polaris (Avalon, #2)

These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1) This Shattered World (Starbound, #2)

Stitching Snow Spinning Starlight

Now That You're Here (Duplexity #1) While You Were Gone (Duplexity, #2)

Arclight (Arclight, #1) Meridian (Arclight, #2)

Salvage Sound
