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
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.
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.
I guess I want a prequel here really.
The Wood Wife
I adored this book and really want more of this whole thing.
Do all cities have undertowns?
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?
Can we research all of the classic monsters, without getting cheesy? If she writes the books I think we could.
Ready Player One
Love love love this book and all the 80s nerdiness. More please!
