Books I Wish Had Sequels

This week’s topic… Standalones that you wish had a sequel or the last book in the series that you wish wasn’t the last… If you’d like to take part in Top 5 Wednesday, join the Goodreads group, and add your name to the list of bloggers & booktubers!

1) Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Uprooted is a Beauty and the Beast retelling with magic and an evil blood thirsty forest.

I felt like the ending was too abrupt, and there were still lots of questions left unanswered.

(My review)


2) The Host by Stephenie Meyer

The Host is about a race of aliens called Souls who invade the earth and embed themselves inside humans. One girl is caught and given a Soul, but her body fights against the Soul so there’s two people in one body. It’s your typical YA dystopia with a group of humans hiding/rebelling and a love triangle.

I read this around the time it was originally published (2008) and read that there would be a sequel. Here I am almost ten years later… WAITING FOR MY SEQUEL. Where is my sequel Stephenie Meyer. HUH!?  WHERE!?


3) Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness

Monsters of Men is the third and final installment in the Chaos Walking trilogy. It’s a science fiction dystopia taking place on another planet where lifeforms and humans with XY chromosomes have telepathy.

I know there’s a novella that resolves a problem that happens in MoM but I need an entire book about life now on the planet, and more closure between some characters. *cries silently inside*blogdivider_full_width

4) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling

I know Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming out at the end of July, but I don’t want to read a play script. I want another book about all the characters I love grown up and their kids doing shenanigans.blogdivider_full_width

5) Strange Fate by L.J. Smith

Strange Fate was supposed to come out in late 1998. Yes, you read that right, EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO.

How does the series end? The world will never know.

  1. It seems like J.K. Rowling’s forcing herself into Harry Potter Exile – at least in regard to another novel (like how Billy Joel never released another album of new pop/rock music after he realized the last track on ‘River Of Dreams’ was “Famous Last Words”). But I’m with you!!! There is SO much to explore in that world! How to those kids grow up with the emotional scarring and PTSD their childhood would have caused? How does Harry deal with every wannabe dark wizard trying to target him/his family to make a name as the one-who-took-down-Harry-Potter? How do people who’ve been raised without the shadow of Voldemort treat “the Chosen One” decades after he did what he was supposed to do? Gah! Why aren’t we getting more books!!! 🙂
