This week's Top 10 Tuesday prompt wants to know, which books do you wish had sequels? I know it's pretty common in YA for books to go beyond just the first, but then there are some that are just a stand-alone. I tend to like the books that end at just one, but often there are times I wonder about the characters and what their lives have become. Below are my top ten that I wish had continued on.
Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.
[The Book of Broken Hearts] by Sarah Ockler
The ending was sweet & oh so perfect, but I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to Jude & Emilio. I wanted to ride along with them through their adventure (literally).
[Where the Stars Still Shine] by Trish Doller
Once you read this, you'll see why I want more! This story is so rich and compelling, I wasn't quite ready to leave Tarpon Springs. *nudges Trish*
[Love and Other Perishable Items] by Laura Buzo
Oh this book! And that ending! Well of course I want more. I always had faith Amelia would be just fine, but I still wondered how things... turned out... five years down the road?
[In Honor] by Jessi Kirby
Though I love this story, the ending left me feeling a little unfinished. I understand the purpose is to leave it to your imagination, but sometimes I just want another story written -- telling me what came next.
[The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight] by Jennifer E. Smith
I could easily spend another 24 hours with these two characters.
[Audrey, Wait!] by Robin Benway
Simply because this story was refreshing and hilarious. I could hang out with Audrey and her BFF for plenty more.
[Along for the Ride] by Sarah Dessen
I'm cheating with this one because my reasons are to take me back to Colby -- yet Dessen has taken us back to Colby in other novels. But I want to revisit these exact characters in Colby, too.
[Raw Blue] by Kirsty Eagar
I could definitely use a continuation of Carly's story. I often wonder about her, and how she's doing. I wouldn't mind seeing more of Ryan either, hehe.
[Amy & Roger's Epic Detour] by Morgan Matson
I want to go on another road trip with these two! Can Morgan please make that happen?! Thanks.
[Attachments] by Rainbow Rowell
If the sequel was just an email exchange between Beth and her BFF Jennifer, I would be completely fine with that. Their correspondence had me laughing so much!
