Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels (they were complete stories but you just could have read more and more about these characters or set in that world) -- thanks Courtney for this suggestion!
I don't read many stand alones, I don't if it's because there isn't that many, or if I just tend to stray toward Series. And some of the stand-alones I have read are getting sequels so they're no longer stand-alones. And because of that I only have 5 this week.
Losing Francesca by J. A. Huss
This book was just so great and I fell in love with the characters so hard I wish we got to see in more detail what their life was like. We got that epilogue, but I just want more.
The Assassin's Curse series by Cassandra Rose Clarke
I'm cheating a bit since this is a series, but I felt like the author could have made this into three books instead of two. The second one just felt a little rushed and I wish she took her time in the second one. Although I'm not giving up hope, because she did leave a few things open to make a third book.
Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Jennifer L. Armentrout did say someday she might write a sequal for this one. And I really hope she does, because I just want more in this world with these characters.
Shifting by Bethany Wiggins
This was a great book and the plot was great, but I really wish the author would write a second book for it!! I loved the world and concept in this book and I was she continued with it.
The Last Song by Nicolas Sparks
This is out of nothing but my desire to read more about Will and Ronnie. I loved this characters and I know the ending was just about perfect, but I just want to see more of their lives.
That's my top
ten Five, whats yours?
I've never read any of these before, except for The Last Song I think, but that was a very LONG time ago. o:ReplyDelete
I haven't these, but I love Jennifer L. Armentrout so I will be checking out Cursed. The Assassin's Curse also intrigues me. Great list!ReplyDelete
I haven't read any of these either, but I want to read Cursed and JA Huss is writing some amazing stuff at the moment. And The Assassin's Curse does look interesting!ReplyDelete
Naomi @ Nomi’s Paranormal
Never read any of these, but heard of most xD And you are right, there actually aren't that many stand-alones anymore. Most start off as stand-alones then end up being duologies or trilogies.ReplyDelete
I actually read the acknowledgements in The Pirate's Wish, and she said that originally it was supposed to be only one book, not two, but it was just too long. I just finished it, and I enjoyed it, but yeah, I can definitely see your point. :DReplyDelete
I love the Last Song! You need to re-read it!! I think it's such a great contemporary and you know how rare it is for me to like a contemporary.ReplyDelete
I love JLA! But keep in mind while reading Cursed that it isn't her best book. I loved it, but I didn't feel like it was up to par with her other books.ReplyDelete
J. A. Huss is a storm lately. Her books keep getting better and better!!!ReplyDelete
As a whole I really enjoyed the Assassin's Curse series, but the first book didn't really impress me all that much. But if you do read it I hope you love it :D
Yah, that sucks. I love stand-alones, because it;s always a quick easy read and it's less complicated than a series.ReplyDelete
And I don't know whether they don't stay stand-alones long because of the author feeling like the book needs a sequel or if it's the publisher pushing the author to write a sequel. A little of both I think.
Now I need to read the acknowledgements. Not that I doubt your word or anything, but I almost never read the acknowledgements in books and I hate feeling like I missed something in that book :(.ReplyDelete
