Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Wish Had Sequels

So...today's prompt over at The Broke and the Bookish is books that you wish had a sequel. In looking over my books read lists, wow, I think almost all of them are sequel/series books! It's been interesting to see that.

Then I sort of ran out of time to ponder this prompt further .... and THEN, I saw Jessica's post over at The Bluestocking Society and how she has tied it Utah Book Month, and I thought, duh, why didn't I think of that? So now I'm blatantly copying her, only I tried to not look at her list so I won't totally copy THAT... I hope. But I think there's going to be a few matches anyway.

Ten UTAH books I wish had sequels

1. Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson: the king of massive series, and THIS one is stand alone? What's up with that?

2. The Hollow City by Dan Wells: (wait Utah/Germany... I'm so confused!) I need more because I just am not sure I get it!

3. Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George: So I think this story wrapped up pretty good (it's been a long time ago that I read it) but I wouldn't mind more in this fairy tale world.

4. My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters by Syndey Salter: I just really loved Gideon and would love to read more about him.

5. Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale: Such an awesome book. We need more!

6. Sweethearts by Sara Zarr: I would like to know if this could be a happy story after all.

GAH!! Everything is part of a series!! Hmmm... what else....

7. So the John Wayne Cleaver books are part of a series I know, but I love this character so much that I really hope there's more with him, or a spin off or something. Wait, is that Dan Wells again? Does he count? Germany/ Utah , same diff, right?

8. I wouldn't mind more from the Elantris world Mr. Brandon Sanderson, and I know you have scattered characters throughout the other books, but that doesn't count.

9. Here's hoping Transparent by Natalie Whipple has a sequel AND....

10. Also, Insomnia by J.R. Johansson...but I know that one does. So, yay!

Whew. What's with nearly ALL the books having sequels already? Hmmm?


  1. Transparent does have a sequel coming out. You can see more on Natalie's blog. I kinda want a sequel to Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow as well, but there isn't too much more to the fairy tale.

  2. I read a lot of series too so that's what I went with. Good idea hooking it in with the "reading Utah" thing. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  3. More John Cleaver PLEASE, I totally agree, loved that series. I didn't enjoy Hollow City as much. I haven't read the new series, maybe that will hold us over :-)

  4. Love it! And your list turned out pretty different than mine. It was hard to find books that are NOT part of series!
