Top Ten Tuesday: Wish These Books Had Sequels

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

I Want Another One! *Sequel please* 


Find MeWitchlanders BY Lena Coakley
RELEASED August 30th 2011 BY Atheneum Books For Young Readers


THOUGHTS: I am almost a hundred-percent sure this was meant to be a series, but it didn't sell enough to warrant the sequel. Which sucks because it's a brilliant high fantasy and deserves a lot more recognition. And that cover is so beautiful, don't you think? 




Find MeTHe Cadet of TIldor BY Alex Lidell
RELEASED January 10th 2013 BY dial


THOUGHTS: Another case of "this was meant to be a sequel." I still hope that I'm wrong and this one is in development for a sequel. But if not, it's a major bummer. This has to be one of the best fantasies around. I adored the military "special forces" aspect, and the young male leader is beyond swoon-worthy. 




Find MeThe Summer I Became A Nerd BY Leah Rae Miller
RELEASED May 7TH 2013 BY Entangled Teen


THOUGHTS: I wish there were five more of this one. And then spin-offs with their geeky children. And then their geeky children. And then there will be about 12 or 15 for me to devour. Yeah, I'm obsessed. Leah Rae Miller has become my favorite contemporary author with this one and has surpassed Stephanie Perkins for me. 



Find MeThe Scorpio Races BY Maggie Stiefvater
RELEASED October 18th 2011 BY Scholastic Press


THOUGHTS: When I finished reading this one, I truly thought it was a series. I was ready to pick up the sequel, and when I found out it was a stand alone, the ugly tears came all over again. Sean Kendrick stole my heart, and I need more water horses!



Find MeSplit BY Swati Avasthi
RELEASED January 24th 2012 BY Ember


THOUGHTS: Heartbreaking and real. I wanted to be in Jace Witherspoon's head again and for the story to continue the minute I finished it.  





Find MeEasy BY Tammara Webber
RELEASED November 6th 2012 BY Berkley Trade


THOUGHTS: This was the first New Adult book that I fell in love with, and even though it concluded, I'd read much, much more from this adorable couple. 






Find MeTiger Lily BY Jodi Lynn Anderson
RELEASED July 3rd 2012 BY HARPER Collins


THOUGHTS: Anderson knows how to write. But more than that, she captured the essence of Peter Pan. I wanted more, more, more almost immediately when it ended. Truthfully, that's exactly how I felt about the real J.M. Barrie play/story. 




Find MeThe Fault in our Stars BY John Green
RELEASED JANUARY 10th 2012 BY Dutton Books


THOUGHTS: I don't know why I'd want a sequel. It'll be more torture because this book tore out my heart and then served it to me. But I can't deny how beautiful or powerful it was, and I'd go through it all again to read some more. 



Find MeJust Listen BY Sarah Dessen
RELEASED April 6th 2006 By Viking Juvenile


THOUGHTS: My favorite Sarah Dessen book totally deserves a sequel. No other Dessen book topped this one for me. 




Find MeJane Eyre BY Charlotte Bronte
RELEASED October 16th 1847


THOUGHTS: I totally wish there was a story following Jane's children. I need to know how they grow up, how Jane raises them, and more Mr. Rochester please! Too bad this one will never come to fruition. But a girl can dream.

  2. Easy WILL have a sequel! Lucas will have his own book:) Haven't read any of the others, but all of Maggie Stiefvater's books I've read--I wish they went on forever and ever. They're perfection:)

  3. I completely agree about Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. That is probably my favorite book by Dessen adn it actually got me into reading YA in high school and college. I don't know that I would have liked another Easy book, but that's one of my favorites so I certainly wouldn't have said no! Great list guys.

    1. You should read Fault in Our Stars soon! It's that good. Remember to sit next to a box of tissues ;)

  5. Ohh! The Summer I Became a Nerd for sure!! I could read tons of books about those characters, and then Logan's family - just all of them! I can't believe I left it off my list!

    1. I didn't think about Logan's family! His little sister needs her own book for sure when she's all grown up :D

  6. I don't know that I could take more The Fault in Our Stars. Maybe a novella that takes place during the book, somehow? I love Augustus so much. The Scorpio Races is coming up very soon on my reading schedule for book club next month and I can't wait to finally read it! :)

    1. Can't wait to see what you think about The Scorpio Races! It's a really powerful read and the prose is just so beautiful.

  7. Yes to more of Tiger Lily & The fault in our stars. I'm sometimes happy when I can read a stand-alone, but most of the times I'm just not done with the world or the characters.

    1. I totally feel the same way. Sometimes, I'm glad when it's a stand alone and I'm not pressured to read the next. But then other times, it just feels open for another!

  8. The Summer I Became a Nerd is on my list, too :) I also really want to read Tiger Lily soon, since I've heard such amazing things about it. Great picks!

    1. Yay! If you love Peter Pan, I'd suggest reading Tiger Lily soon since the writing captures the essence of J.M. Barrie's play. It's beautiful!

  9. The Scorpio Races is at the top of my list! I also thought it was going to be a series and then all my hopes were shattered when I found out it was a stand alone! I went back and forth about adding Tiger Lily to my list as well and eventually decided not to. As much as I want more more more I also really liked the way it ended, kind of bittersweet.

    1. Tiger Lily was bittersweet. But I love Tinker Bell as the narrator. I could listen to her narrate all day. Even if she was talking about living on a leaf with nothing really happening lol :D

  10. THE SCORPIO RACES would be such a great series. Ooh, and SPLIT! I loved that novel. Very intense, but wonderful.

    Awesome choices :D

  11. The Summer I Became A Nerd was so cute and I would like to see a sequel with the couple together. I feel like so many books end when the couple just barely get together and I like to get to see them actually together. Easy was amazing and there will sorta kinda be a sequel. She is writing Lucas' story and it will have prequel stuff and some stuff from Easy and after Easy I think. Pretty excited for it!

  12. I've never read any of these besides The Fault In Our Stars, but I DON'T want a sequel. I don't want to see Hazel move on; she should be remembering Augustus' awesomeness FOREVER. ;D
