Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Sequels
This was tough for me, since most of the books that I read are part of a series. It took me a while to think up ten whole books, but I pulled it off in the end. Go me!
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
Maybe not a sequel, but a spin-off series or something. I'm still holding out hope that there's going to be either a Founders series, or even Hogwarts: A History. I just want to go back to Hogwarts, is that too much to ask?
2. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
A sequel wouldn't have worked in the slightest, but I'm so not ready to let these characters go. Can't we just pretend the epic poem didn't end the way it did, and have a bunch of new adventures? I'd be all for it.
3. Rip Tide by Kat Falls
I think Kat Falls has the rest of this series planned, but as far as I know it's on pause, possibly due to poor sales. This makes me very sad because I love these books. It's such a fun adventure series, and YES, it made me cry. I also fell in love with the villain, so I'm hoping to see more of him in the future. Perhaps he can get his own spin-off?
4. The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
Mostly because I want more zombies and more character deaths. I'm cruel, okay?
5. The Disappeared by C. J. Harper
Is this getting a sequel? The ending could work both ways. I definitely want to see what happens to these characters next, and if the author can tackle tougher topics like she did in this first book, then I definitely NEED a sequel.
6. Feedback by Robison Wells
I absolutely hated the ending of this book, and I was shocked to discover that there is no sequel! Seriously, it read as though it was all building up to something, and then it just... ended. It was awful.
7. Forgotten by Cat Patrick
I want to learn more about... just everything. The ending was kind of cliffhanger-y, so I honestly thought there was going to be a sequel. Alas.
8. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
I'd be more than happy to read more about Cayman go through some things that she's obviously going to go through due to the end of this book. Look at me, being all spoiler-free and all! Basically I just want more Kasie West books.
9. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Because I like to pretend that the latter books in this series don't exist. We can start over again, right?
10. Outside In by Maria V. Snyder
I NEED IT. This is another case of a series not selling well and the publishers deciding not to continue with the series. I adore these books, and they introduced me to Maria, one of my favourite authors. I'm very sad about there not being a third book!
