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- 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. It’s another book that I’d be curious to see other adventures of the main character.
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 real 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!
