The topic this week is Top Ten Books I Wish Had Sequels. Okay, to be honest, I don't read a lot of standalone novels. I don't know why, but I think it says more about the book industry than it does about me... I'm just saying. Most of these picks, I am perfectly happy with how they ended, I just wouldn't mind having more. Some characters/stories I just don't want to let go of!
Here are the books that, should they ever get a sequel, I totally wouldn't mind:
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith - I want to know what happened to Cassandra, I don't want to have to imagine with this one... not really. I want to know what she chose! I want to know... well, I can't give anything away, so I can't say more. But still! I WANT MORE! (Check out my review!)
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen - So I totally know this one will never ever happen, but I wouldn't mind if they found a random sequel whilst going through some old Jane Austen archives or whatever. I'm just sayin'...
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - I loved spending 24 hours with these two characters. I would love to see more of their story, too. (Check out my review!)
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - This is one that I liked how it ended, but should Maggie ever feel like revisiting the story, I most definitely wouldn't object. Again, I'm just sayin'. Ahem. (Check out my review!)
The Host by Stephenie Meyer - Really? Hasn't she promised us a sequel for AGES? I want more! I don't even care if it's a companion novel! Though I totally think she could make it a trilogy. You know, there would be The Host, then a companion novel with that other group and then the third book could be both groups together taking down the aliens! YEAH! This should be a thing.
The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram - Yeah yeah, I loved how it ended... but still! More! It was so dang cute, I loved it to bits. I loved this story so much and I just want more!
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales - So I just finished this yesterday and... I already want more! I want more of Elise and Vicky and Mel and Alex and Harry and everyone, even Pippa and Char. I want more Start! More music! More... everything! Am I demanding? Um... maybe yes, in this case... but I don't care. MORE PLEASE!
