Top 10 Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels
This was one I thought I would have a lot of trouble with, because I read so many series, and it felt too weird adding sequels, you know? But I was surprised by the number of books I would totally revisit had they had a sequel.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This one was the first one that came to mind, because I was truly sad when I finished it. At the same time, part of me wouldn’t want a sequel because it’s so magical.
- Blood Of The Lamb by Sam Cabot. I finished this one recently, and the ending had me wanting another book because it definitely ended on a really surprising note.
- That Time I Joined The Circus by J.J. Howard. Because I kind of want to see Lexi at the circus again.
- A World Away by Nancy Grossman. I loved A World Away, and I would love a sequel so very much! Mostly because I want to know how Eliza adjusted to Amish life and how connected she was to the English world.
- And All The Stars by Andrea K. Höst. Because the epilogue didn’t answer all of the questions I had by the end of the book, and I want to how how everything turned out for the characters.
- Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick. Because the book END MIDSENTENCE, and this is unacceptable because I need to know what happens to Mitch and to Jenna’s mom.
- The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams. Kara’s story of escaping from a polygamist sect was an interesting one, and I know there’s more to her story. I want to how she adjusts to life outside the one she grew up in, and if she ever sees her family again.
- When She Woke by Hillary Jordan. I was so intrigued by the criminals who have their skin dyed to match their crimes and how there’s not really a separation of church and state that I want to learn everything I can about this fictional but creepy world. Especially because the details I wanted weren’t there.
- Faking Faith by Josie Bloss. Because the contrast between Dylan’s family and Abigail’s family was pretty interesting, and I’m really interested in how Abigail’s story turns out.
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I haven’t read this one in forever, but it’s one of those books that I want to revisit in the form of a sequel. Not only does Kostova have an interesting take on the Dracula story, but I would love to see the characters take on some other myth. Either way, I’m good.
