It’s Top Ten Tuesday again, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s theme is …

Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels

eleanor & park

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: Even though I loved this book with all my heart, I would have given my left arm to have a sequel, or at least more at the end. If you’ve read this book, then you probably know what I mean. Eleanor & Park ends with an open ending (it’s kind of open and yet not-not sure how to explain it), but one that I though was fitting for the story. Still, I definitely wouldn’t mind a sequel.

Easy by Tammara Webber

Easy by Tammara Webber: I absolutely adored Easy. I loved Jacqueline and Lucas’s story, and when I got to the ending, I so wasn’t ready to leave them. A sequel would be perfect, but don’t despair folks! Lucas’s POV of Easy is in the works! *cue squealing*

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: Yes, I know, there’s a sequel to this book, but technically, it’s more of a companion book. The sequel doesn’t go back to Noah and Echo (but I still loved it!). Still, I would have loved to read more about Noah and Echo, maybe about their road trip or even them in college. I just can’t get enough of them (especially Noah)!

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: My heart was just pounding at the end, because-horses!! Or mythological creatures that look like horses. The ending was sort of bittersweet, and I so wish that we could have known what would happen for Puck, Sean, and his horse, and especially whether Sean could go back to racing.

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater: Another book by Maggie Stiefvater… I think I’m seeing a pattern here. But anyways, this ending was so open, and I totally get that the author wanted the readers to come up with their own conclusions, but still! A more concrete ending and I would have loved this book. Not that I didn’t enjoy the book, but I just wasn’t expecting such an ambiguous ending for a final book.

Requiem

Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver: This is also another final book of a series with an open ending. Even though I had no problem with the open ending (a lot of people did though), I wouldn’t have minded more. Like whether their world ended up okay, what happens with Lena’s relationship with Alex, or something like that.

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: I loved this book. I fell head over heels in love with the story, Samantha, and the Garretts (JASE <3). The ending though, was a bit abrupt, and I think it didn’t resolve everything that happened with the accident. So a sequel? Yes please! I want more of Jase! I’d love to see his and Samantha’s relationship growing during the school year and maybe even beyond high school.

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta: This book is just beautiful. The words just stick to your heart. So I absolutely wouldn’t mind another book with more gorgeous writing. Melina Marchetta, I bow down to you. I don’t know how you do it, but I don’t really care to as long as you keep on writing incredible books. And with Jellicoe Road, I want more of Taylor and Jonah. They don’t get much of a chance to be together before Jonah has to leave, so a sequel would make me very happy.

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta: This book was fantastic as well. Melina Marchetta is seriously one of my absolute favorite authors, and if there’s another book by her, I will read it. So a sequel for Saving Francesca? I’m there. The Piper’s Son is sort of a sequel, but it’s more of a companion book. We see tiny glimpses of Francesca and WIll in that, but I would love love love another book for them, to see how they’re handling their long distance relationship.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling by Kristin Cashore: Po! Po! Po! I just can’t get enough of him! I love him to bits 🙂 Even though we see a bit of him and Katsa in the companion books, I would love a sequel that’s dedicated to just them again. They’re one of my favorite couples ever, and I want more of them being together. I also miss the world; it’s been a while since Bitterblue was last released.
