I am a huge fan of standalones, so it’s not often that I feel as though a book needs a sequel. In fact, the majority of sequels I’ve read recently haven’t needed to exist: recycled plot lines, little character development… They just get so dragging.
But these five are different.
I would love it if these five books had sequels, because they actually have unresolved tension and the possibility to go further.
5) ‘Terminated’ by Rachel Caine
When I read (and fell in love with) Rachel Caine’s Revivalist series, I didn’t realise it was only going to be a trilogy. I sped through each book and eagerly anticipated the next one… But then the fourth book never came.
4) ‘Looking For Alaska’ by John Green
I know John Green only writes standalone novels, but I’ve already read this one over and over and over again, and I’d quite like to be able to read something new with the same cast of characters.
3) ‘Fangirl’ by Rainbow Rowell
2) ‘Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda’ by Becky Albertalli
1) ‘The Year We Fell Apart’ by Emily Martin
I hope you enjoyed this Top Five Wednesday! Are there any books you really wish had sequels?
