Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I Wish Had A Sequel
So I don’t wish these had a sequel because they were incomplete, except maybe ONE of my picks, but rather because I just want MORE of the story and the characters or the world.
Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis: I literally just finished this and the ending satisfied me but I’d love to go back into this world again so much! My review should be up either this week or next so be on the look out!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: The story was a complete story but I could totally follow Cather through more of her college experience — see how she continues to grow, the romance, how she and her twin continue to find themselves, how her writing progresses, etc.
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna: I said this in my review but I TOTALLY want a sequel. I was satisfied with the ending but…you’ll have to read to find out why I say I’d love a sequel! There’s a lot of things that could totally be explored still!
Five Summers by Una LaMarche: I liked this one alright, didn’t love, but I’d totally be down for a companion novel of sorts after whether it be the next summer and we see how the year went for them and how they are continuing to maintain their friendship OR it could be another camp reunion 5 years later as they are just out of college. I just really love the whole friendship thing ( a la Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and the summer camp setting — remember I begged for it?? Not going to lie I would have totally dug this as a series from first year in camp until this one ends. lol I JUST WANT CAMP, OK?!
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks by E. Lockhart: I want more Frankie hangout time! I would have loved to see all the shenanigans she got in at boarding school through the years and also how she really grows in the base of feminist ideals she had.
The Statistical Probability of Love At First by Jennifer E. Smith: So we got to see the very spark of Hadley and Oliver and I’d LOOOVE to catch up with them later on!
Every Day by David Levithan: I would totally be down for a sequel to this just because I loved seeing all the lives A got to lead that were all so, so different and how he experienced being these people. I also would love to learn a little more how all of it worked!
Boundless by Cynthia Hand: I don’t want to say anything but there are some THINGS I would like to know…how a certain person is doing after that ending. But really I’d just LOVE to catch up with this gang and get caught back up in the world. One of my fave series! If you haven’t given this series a chance, check out my review of Unearthly!
Requiem by Lauren Oliver: SIGH. The ending was just not satisfying to me despite the fact the last paragraph was one of my most favorite last lines ever. I don’t need my stories tied up in neat little bows or totally happy endings but I just loved this series so much and the ending was so underwhelming to me. Basically I just want Lauren to be like JUST KIDDING…THAT WASN’T THE END. THERE’S MOOOOORE. I mean, the more I’ve had time to sit on it I’ve become a little more okay with the ending but it left a bad taste in my mouth for months. I just keep playing out the story in my head from time to time.
So tell me…what books would YOU love to see a sequel to, not because they are INCOMPLETE/UNSATISFYING endings, but because you just want MORE? Are there any books that had an unsatisfying ending that you want a sequel to? Agree/disagree with any of my picks/reasoning for wanting a sequel?
