This weeks’ T5W is top 5 books you wish had sequels, so let’s get started!
1. Eleanor and Park (Rainbow Rowell)
I think it’s safe to say that we all want at least a little bit more of Eleanor and Park’s story. I won’t give anything away if you haven’t read it yet but… that damn postcard! I will always want that question answered. It bugs me that it won’t ever be answered. Just a wee novella will do Rowell!
2. Carry On (Rainbow Rowell)
I loved this fantasy world so much, I could easily read anything set in this world. And I feel like a book of short story’s set in this world would be really awesome. Rowell always seems to leave certain questions unanswered which I understand but, at the same time, it’s so frustrating! I just want moreeee!
3. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Becky Albertalli)
I really love the romance in this but we never really got to see the couple together until right at the end of the book and I’d just like to see more of them and their adorable relationship. I’m thinking maybe a companion novel with different main characters but where the original couple make one or two appearances. I’m on to something, right?!
4. Stolen (Lucy Christopher)
I would love to know more of this story. I feel like I can’t really say anything without spoiling it but I think a new book set five years later on would be really interesting. I’d like to see how each of the main characters would feel about the other after some years have passed.
5. The Infernal Devices (Cassandra Clare)
I guess my dreams are coming true a bit for this one because we are getting a sequel series. But it’s not here yet and I’m the impatient type so I’ll have this on the list anyway! The Last Hours takes place in 1903 and follows the next generation of Herondales, Carstairs, Fairchilds, Blackthorns and Lightwoods. And I am so very excited for it! Even though there still isn’t a publication date…
Honourable mention: Shatter Me (Tahereh Mafi)
What I wouldn’t give for an epilogue! Just an epilogue, that’s all I would need! It just didn’t feel like the end; it wasn’t rounded off nicely and I’ve never really felt satisfied with the ending we got.
So that’s it for this weeks’ Top 5 Wednesday. What are some books or series you wish had sequels?
