Just Can’t Get Enough!: Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday
Each week The Broke and the Bookish will post a new Top Ten list that one (or more) of their bloggers will answer.
Everyone is welcome to join.

The bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish have put me in a bad position. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels.” I am often complaining these days that I am tired of everything being a trilogy, or more. But they want me to pick books I want more of? OK, if I must, but I will be honest with some of these I would be happy if it were just more of the setting, the world, the wonderful place the author created. It does not necessarily have to be a continuation of the story presented in these books.

 The Night Circus

The Night Circus
Tell me a short story about every tent. Tell me the back story of every performer. I just want to be able to continue to be a rêveur.

American Gods: Author's Preferred Text

American Gods
Modern America full of magic and gods. 1,000 untold stories I still want to hear.


I want the story of every Graveminder.


I don’t know if I want more of this story or just more by this author. But I loved this so much. 

The Road

The Road
I guess I want a prequel here really.

The Wood Wife (Fairy Tales)

The Wood Wife
I adored this book and really want more of this whole thing.

Neverwhere: A Novel

Do all cities have undertowns?

The Book of Lost Things: A Novel

The Book of Lost Things
Is it horrible to say that I was disappointed to find his other books are not fairy tales? More of this please?

The Historian

The Historian
Can we research all of the classic monsters, without getting cheesy? If she writes the books I think we could.

Ready Player One

Ready Player One
Love love love this book and all the 80s nerdiness. More please!

    1. Oh don’t get me started on American Gods. Hands down my favorite Gaiman book and possible my favorite book of all time.

    1. It is a commitment. It took our book club two months to get through. But seriously, it was worth it.

  1. A sequel to The Book of Lost Things would be awesome!!! And, I think I would want a prequel or sequel to The Road just in the hopes of redeeming it. I was not a huge fan of the story because it was so depressing!!!

    1. Oh, The Road, so well written and so very depressing. I read it because someone told me their father said it was “the best book he would never recommend anyone read.” And well with a comment like you I just had to know.
