Top Ten Tuesday: Sequels Please!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they post a new topic that the participants come up with a top ten list for.

This week's topic is books we wish had sequels. Yes, they are complete stories, but the characters and story made you crave more.

1. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers: Yes, yes, yes, do I ever want a sequel to this book! I know it will never happen, but I really want to find out if Sloane gets out alive. Agh.

2. Oath Bound by Rachel Vincent: Yes, I know there are three books in this series, but I fell in love with this world and I'm not ready to let it go. Can't it be a seven book series like Soul Screamers?

3. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: Ok, I understand Sam is dead, but I really liked the whole idea of redemption after death and Lauren is such a magnificent writer that I think she have made this into a series, each revolving around a different character from this town. Still my favourite book of hers.

4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: I know there are two more in this series, one's not even out yet, but I could read about Anna and Etienne forever. They need more books about only them!

5. Curse Workers series by Holly Black: Three books was not enough for this series! More please!

6. Paper Towns by John Green: My favourite Green book, I'd love to see what happens next for Quentin and Margo.

7. The Forest of Hands and Teeth series: Because who can resist zombies

8. Reunited by Hilary Wiseman Graham: Mostly because I want to see the antics the girls get up to with the band!

And two books that I wish didn't have sequels:

9. Fifty Shades of Grey: Because who even read the first one?

10. Beautiful Disaster: It was bad enough reading the first one, let alone coming out with the same book written in a different P.O.V. Why not continue the story instead?

Anyway, those last two may have been a bit harsh, but maybe I'm jut mad that some of my favourite books still don't have sequels. What do you guys think? 


  1. I agree with you about Anna, Forest of Hands and Teeth, This is Not Test, and The Curse Workers. Especially Curse Workers. Thanks for sharing! http://wp.me/pzUn5-1BN

  2. I haven't read Oath Bound yet but if it's anything like the first 2, I'd definitely love for the series to be longer! Such a great concept!!
    I own Forest of Hands and Teeth but haven't read it yet...

    And omg I totally agree with Beautiful Disaster. I was so tempted to DNF but it was like a train-wreck, I just couldn't look away. I rolled my eyes waaaay too often though and just snorted at the ending. So many things didn't make sense of line up. Definitely not wasting money on the Travis POV.

    Thanks for stopping by :)
