This week’s topic is really hard for me only because I feel like I read nothing but series/duologies/trilogies, so I have very few standalone books that I’ve read and of those, even less that I truly feel need a sequel.
Therefore, I’m adjusting this Top Ten Tuesday to Top However-Many-Books-I’ve-Read-That-I-Wish-Had-Sequels, which will definitely not be ten.
Standalone Books That Need a Sequel
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Right off the bat, this book popped into my head. I LOVED this book and even though it wrapped up really well, it left me wanting more because I just loved it so very much.
My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares
This is the second book that popped in my mind out of anger. It ended on a cliffhanger with no sequel in sight and I wanted to throw the book across the room and drown in tears of sorrow over the fact that no sequel will ever be written. I adored the evil book, but I hate cliffhangers!
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Ok, so the rest of the books in this list are pure fluff. I simply want sequels only because I feel like I could live in these worlds forever and I wouldn’t even care if the sequel had no plot… I’d read about Lucy and Josh’s day-to-day lives in hundreds of books because I love them so much.
It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
It’s just that I wanted so much to read more about this couple’s story… so much more than the Happily Ever After… I felt unsatisfied at the end.
