Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels.
I hardly read standalones so this list was beyond hard for me to put together.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson
At first, I thought that there wasn’t a need for a sequel after Valkyrie Rising, but boy, was I wrong. Flash forward three months later and I find myself missing some Valkyrie action and most of all, missing Tucker. Ahh, Tucker. -swoons-
2. Wallbanger by Alice Clayton
I absolutely love reading Wallbanger; in fact, I’ve read and re-read it five times already. I want a sequel where Caroline and Simon gets married and have so many babies and gets married again… :P
3. The Clearing by Heather Davis
The ending was so heartbreaking and bittersweet. I want a sequel to The Clearing where there will be a true happy ending. Pretty please?
4. Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Oh my goodness, the ending. I can not get over this book’s ending. It is epic, sweet, and totally, 100%, unexpected. It left me feeling empty and I need a sequel to make me feel whole again.
5. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The ending was pretty satisfying, but I just want more. My Life Next Door is just so good.
6. Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris
Although Unbreakable is the sequel to Unraveling, I want more! I want a totally complete happy ending where maybe the dead people come back alive (hey, I won’t mind zombies!) or there will be a time machine built…just something. Hey, I can always hope!
7. If I Lie by Corrine Jackson
The ending of If I Lie was such an open ending. I want some solid answers revolving around Quinn and Blake and maybe Carey.
8. Tempt Me At Twilight by Lisa Kleypas
Harry, Harry, Harry. <3 I need more Harry. 9. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
This is the first and really only Jennifer Echols book I love. I loved Meg, I loved John, I absolutely loved everything about the book. That’s why I want a sequel.
10. Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
I need more Will! I need more of Kate’s cluelessness (I doubt that’s even a word). I need more of them two together and I definitely need more of Elizabeth Scott’s brilliant writing. I’ll be so happy if there’s a sequel to Perfect You.
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten favorite beginnings/endings in books?
