Top Ten Tuesday (15): Books I Wish Had Sequels

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish to facilitate list sharing. My lists, as usual, are in no real order. This week’s topic:

Top 10 Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels:

  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen — Do I even need to explain this?
  • In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters — I loved this book so much and would looove to have more. Mary Shelley is such a Β wonderful MC.
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins — I feel like I don’t need to explain this one either. Though I will, for the sake of clarification, say that Lola doesn’t count as a sequel.
  • 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody — I laughed so much at this book, but it also had a real message that I appreciated so much. I mean, I sort of want Lexington Larrabee to be my best friend. Sort of… when she’s not so… difficult.
  • Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson — I loved this novel and I would totally enjoy reading what happened after the fact. Maybe another road trip too? I want some more time with the smaller characters they visited along the way.
  • Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys — Did she get into Smith?! I don’t know! I love the room for interpretation at the end of this novel… but I also love the main character and her blooming romance. (Especially her blooming romance. *swoon*)
  • OCD, the Dude, and Me by Lauren Roedy Vaughn — I love the way this novel was written and I love the main character’s voice. I think I could read her writing forever.
  • Golden by Jessi Kirby — I just want more of the boy, okay? OKAY!
  • A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks — Sobs.
  • Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt — I love Jesse. That’s all. (Okay, but really… the whole family is pretty awesome and I love them.)

So I feel like I stretched this list a bit… but oh well. There are a ton of books I would like more of. It’s not always because I think the story was incomplete, but more the fact that I love the characters so much. Sadly, sometimes the characters can never come back. Boo!

    1. Same here. I think it was wonderful as it was written. This topic was difficult because I love a lot of the books (pretty much all of them) as they were, but I would also not mind more time with the characters. You know what I mean?

      1. Oh, definitely. It wasn’t so much that I wanted a sequel, necessarily, as much as I’d love just a little more of the world and characters. πŸ™‚

  1. I can’t believe I haven’t read any Stephanie Perkins’s books. 😦 I need to change this asap, because everyone seems to simply love them. πŸ™‚

  2. I loved Tuck Everlasting, and that whole family was just great. I wouldn’t be opposed to reading a sequel but I’d definitely be apprehensive!

  3. A sequel to Pride and Prejudice would be… incredible! Seeing how Darcy and Elizabeth evolve together and having more time where they don’t outright hate each other, seeing that endearing relationship grow- it would be awesome! I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself! (:
