Top Ten Tuesday [9]



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is:

Top ten books I wish could have sequels.



For this top ten, I'm going to try and stick to stand alone books, instead of series that I wish had kept going. (The key word is try, let's see how that works out!):


The first one that comes to mind is Mosh Pit. This is a book I read in junior high and absolutely loved. It deals with LGBT issues, drugs, sex, and all kinds of fun stuff. The amount of drama in this book has the intensity of a soap opera, and I really wish I could have learned what happened to the characters after the pages ended.




Don't get me wrong. My regular readers know that Forbidden is one of my favorite books. The ending, no matter how tragic, is perfect, and I wouldn't change a thing. However, there is a void in my heart named Lochan, and I wish I could have had more time with him. Actually, there's another book that makes me feel the same.....




This is another book that I wouldn't really want to have a sequel, and of course I know that there can't be one, due to the plot of the story. But like Lochan, I just wish I had more time to fall in love with Augustus.




I apparently have an entire section of my heart blocked off for fictional characters. Though the novella, Uncharted, helped to quench my TJ and Anna thirst, I really wish there could have been another full book. I don't know how it would have worked, and it's for that reason that there probably isn't one.



This might be cheating, but I'm not counting Walking Disaster as a sequel, since it's the same story from another view. I want a new story of Travis and Abby, I miss them!




This might also be cheating, since there is technically a book three, Lush. But more specifically, I wish there was another story of this specific relationship, the three-way relationship of Juliet, Cal, and Gideon.




I'm not ready to leave Hogwarts yet and you can't make me.





Now, rumor has it that there might be another book. But until something is officially announced, I'm counting this as a stand alone. Christmas is coming, and I wish I had another book for the holidays!




Simply put, I want to see how Charlie progressed through life.



This wasn't one of my most loved reads, earning a three star review. But I'll be damned if I don't want to read more about what happens. I am not satisfied with this being the end of the road!!!

What about you?

  4. I so agree with The Perks of Being a Wallflower! I want to know more about how Charlie coped with his life, and how high school turned out to be, did he go to a college? So, so many questions. :) And of course there's even no question about wanting sequels for TFIOS and HP. Great list!

  11. Great list! I totally understand, I don't think I'll ever fully be able to let go of Harry Potter. I was satisfied with the epilogue but I wouldn't complain if Jo released some more HP :) Thanks for stopping by <3

  13. Great List!! Beautiful Disaster and The Fault In Our Stars are both still on my TBR list. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed them. I still need to read the last HP book. I read books 4-6 over the past two years. My goal is to finish the series this year, but I'm sure I will miss Harry as well.

  18. I finally ordered the HP series. I don't know when I'll get the chance to read them, but I'm looking forward to no longer having to hang my head in shame over the fact that I'm an HP virgin.

  19. Forbidden MIGHT need a sequel. I mean, what if Lochan's sister moves on? (I forgot her name. :P)
    Anyways, there is a sort of sequel to Beautiful Disaster - Walking Disaster. It talks about Travis and Abby's kids and stuff. :P
    Great list & thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:

    1. I didn't count Walking Disaster as a sequel, since it's essentially the same story. I read it, and liked it, but I need more of them in the future.

  25. Interesting list. The only one that I've read is The Perks of Being A Wallflower and I have to admit it would be nice to have a sequel and see how Charlie is doing after all these events have passed, be it a few months or years in the future.

    1. Precisely. I have no preference for how far into the future the sequel would take place, but I would love to read it.

  26. I kinda agree with you with Beautiful Disaster. I kind of wish there was a sequel to just let us see more into there lives in the future. But I'm excited about the Maddox brother's series. I hope we get to see more of Travis in that one.

  27. I love the way you put your thoughts about the Harry Potter books in big, bold type! Yes, I feel the same way -- but I'm worried that if she ever does write a sequel, it might not have the same magic (figuratively speaking.)

  37. I sort of agree about Harry Potter. I don't want a full sequel (I'm not sure how good it would be), but I definitely want more about what happened in the months following the battle. I didn't love the jump into the future so much, although I've warmed to it now.

  46. I meant to put in Perks of Being a Wallflower!!! I also loved TFIOS, but I was conflicted over whether or not to put it in my list because of the finality of the story. I can't remember, actually, the last time that I felt that one book managed to hold it all so well.
