Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is about books that you wish had sequels. Now I have to admit this has been quite a hard list for me because I’ve realised just how many series I read! Maybe this list serves as a hint to me to read more standalone books.

In no particular order here are my 10. Click on the book image to get to the Goodreads page.


The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson- I really enjoyed reading this book. It was brilliantly written and I’d love to have seen how Lennie’s life progressed.


Heart-Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne-Β I think I would just love to read more about Emily. I loved her character. I shouldn’t have liked her so much, but Tanya’s incredible writing made me love her!


The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence- Again, this is more about me being attached to the main character than anything else. Although, after reading Gavin Extence’s writing, I’ll be certain to read whatever he writes next.


The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night Time by Mark Haddon- This is one of my favourite books.Β  It’s another book that I’d be curious to see other adventures of the main character.


Saving June

Saving June by Hannah Harrington- I’m sensing a theme here that the books I’ve mentioned are books I’d like to see what happens next to the character.


If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern- I loved the characters in this very sweet book.


Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler- I’m becoming a bit repetitive now, but this is another book where I’d love to know what happened next to the characters.


Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver- I really liked this story. Its writing is very realΒ and beautiful.


The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella- I know, I know I’m a bit boring with this list, but again this is another book where I’m way too attached to the characters. I WANT MORE!

Feel free to leave your links to your lists. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be kicking myself for not adding your books to my list!

  1. YEs! to the Sky is Everywhere and Saving June. I also think the Curious Dog would have a great sequel. I liked the Undomestic Goddess too! I’d love to see what happened next… And if she can write six shopaholic books -surely just one more Undomestic Goddess book wouldn’t be too hard? πŸ˜›

    As for If You Could See Me Now – I think that is one of the only books in the past decade that I couldn’t finish… maybe I should give it another shot one of these days

    • πŸ˜€ I’m glad you like so many of the books on my list too. Yes, one more Undomestic Goddess surely wouldn’t hurt! I do hope you try If You Could See Me Now again. It really is a sweet read. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh I’d love a sequel to Saving June and Before I Fall. Wonder how a sequel to BIF would work- maybe a companion book about another character? Nice list!

  3. A sequel to Heart-Shaped Bruise and The Sky is Everywhere would be brilliant. I’d definitely read both!

    Great choices, Chrissi!

  4. I’ve only read Before I Fall from your list. I thought the book was great, but I wasn’t satisfied with the ending lol. I really enjoyed Celia Ahern’s P.S.I Love You, but I don’t think I’ve read If You Could See Me Now. Have you read Where Rainbows End? Thank you for stopping by my blog!

    • You’re welcome, thank you for the return visit. I love Cecelia Ahern. Yes, I’ve read Where Rainbows End. I thought it was really cute. I liked how they used emails. πŸ˜€

  5. The only one I’ve read is The Curious Incident — and I agree, it would be really interesting to read more about the main character and see what happens next in his life. You just know he’ll stumble into some other major adventure!

  7. I haven’t read any of these but I’m looking forward to reading Before i Fall! Great list. New follower via Bloglovin’! Thanks for stopping by earlier! πŸ™‚

  8. OMG, that cover for The Curious Incident is a kick! I can’t believe I didn’t think of Saving June; I was quite happy with the ending, but I could definitely stand to See these characters again. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  9. A few of these are on my to-read list, and The Sky Is Everywhere is the only one I’ve read. I almost put it on my list this week, but I loved it so much that I’m not sure if a sequel could live up to it! Even though a sequel would be nice because I fell in love with it.

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
