Top Ten Tuesday: Gimme More!

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created it because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature.

It's been almost a month since I've done a Top Ten Tuesday and when I saw this week's topic I knew it was time to get back in the game. The topic this week is: 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). Every bookworm has had the feeling of "Whyyyyyyyyy is this oooooverrrrrrrrr?" once they've finished a great book (or series). I approached this topic by looking through my Goodreads read list and thinking about which story I wasn't ready to saw goodbye to. As it turns out I had different reasons for wanting more and I've given a quick line explaining each choice.

Don't forget to check out their blog for a full list of everyone participating this week!

First, the obvious choices: Pride and Prejudice (or Persuasion) by Jane Austen because I wanted to know what happens after the happily ever after and Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (duh. I just can't get enough of this world).

Breaking the Rules - Cat Lavoie
Quite simply, I wasn't ready to say goodbye to these characters.

The Bone Cage - Angie Abdou
What happened at the Olympics? What happened after? I want to know these things!

Forgotten - Catherine McKenzie
I really want a story about Stephanie, the main character's best friend.

Where We Belong - Emily Giffin
There's so much more that can be explored and I'm hoping Giffin does decide to write the sequel (which she's hinted at).

The Space Between Us - Jessica Martinez
I'd love to see how Amelia did in university and what her life was like and how her relationship with her sister was repaired.

The Inn Boonsboro Trilogy - Nora Roberts
Yes, this was a series but I was hit with such a strong "Nooo, don't make me leave this world and these characters!" after finishing The Perfect Hope, the final book.

The Single Girl's To-Do List - Lindsey Kelk
This one was just so much fun that I'd love to see what adventures happened next.

Elly in Bloom - Colleen Oakes
This is a bit of a cheat because there will be another book but I didn't know it when I finished this one! Elly grabbed me, unexpectedly, and I can't wait to see where her story goes.


  1. More Harry Potter would be a dream come true!

  2. Thanks for sharing these. A couple will go on my wishlist :)

  3. Thanks for including Breaking the Rules, Kaley! :)
    I had so much fun writing Steffi that, if I ever wrote a sequel, it would probably be from her POV.
    Ooooh, I second Where We Belong. There HAS to be a sequel!!

  4. The only two books on your list I've read are Pride & Prejudice (and Persuasion) and the HP series. I would also love to read sequels to them!

  5. I would be so happy if there was more Harry Potter. :)

  6. Harry Potter made my list too. I'm just not ready to give it up!

    My TTT.

  7. ? Did Sadie and Digger get together after the Olympics? What about their children? Are they great in some sport? what sport? I bet swimmers? i want to know what happens. We need a sequil to the Bone Cage



Thanks for stopping by Books Etc.!
