Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where each week we're given a new book-related topic, and give our top ten books relating to the week's given topic. This week's topic is the Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels.
1. The Beginning of Everything: I completely fell in love with Robyn Schneider's gorgeous debut, along with her characters, and would love to have the chance to revisit them some day. Although the main relationship was wrapped up pretty tightly by the end of the novel, there are some other lives, relationships, and perspectives (*cough* Toby's) that I would love to read about.
2. Perfect Lies: So, I wasn't a huge fan of Mind Games, but I will say that, for those of you who don't know already, Perfect Lies REALLY surprised me. In every sense of the word, this installment of Mind Games was an improvement upon the first. It is also, however, the last installment. I don't know where Kiersten White will go with Annie and Fia's stories should there ever be a third installment or companion novel, but the ending of Perfect Lies was open enough for there to be possibilities, and I'm hopeful.
3. Life After Theft: This book was so much fun for me, and I really enjoyed the character development, but that ending was just heartbreaking for me. And a little...blunt? I understand that the bluntness made the ending bear more of an impact on the reader (and it did), but I would love to see how the events of Life After Theft affects Jeff in his future.
4. September Girls: Show of hands, who is surprised to find this book on this list? You should be surprised, because, as you probably already know, I hated this book. I really, truly hated it. BUT, I would be interested in seeing how much, or even if, Sam has really "changed" after his relationship with DeeDee in a sequel. Odds are I would not read that sequel, but I would instead ask someone who has read it to tell me what happens.
5. Boundless: I want more of this couple, plain and simple. I neeeeeed more of these two. I won't specify which two, because there are people who haven't read this trilogy yet and don't know who she ends up with, but yeah. Need.
6. Harry Potter: SELF EXPLANATORY. SEQUEL. NOW. DIRECT-SEQUEL, COMPANION, SPIN-OFF, I'LL TAKE ANYTHING.
7. The Iron Fey: Yes, I know there is the spin-off/companion to this series with Meghan's younger brother, and yes, that was pretty damn fantastic, but I want more of the original crew, too. Some more Meghan and Ash novels would be nice, but what I really, really need? A Puck novel. Nothing but Puck. Puck finding his love, Puck going for a walk, Puck eating breakfast--anything. (ALSO someone please tell me I'm not the only one who think Ash looks like Topher Grace on this cover?)
8. Golden: This is also extremely self explanatory. To say that I merely loved Golden would be an understatement, and while I know there may not be that much to expand upon in a sequel, there are some possibilities, and that's all I need.
9. Every Day: I've been curious about what happens to A ever since the open ending of Every Day, and while I acknowledge that the ambiguity of what happens may be the point of the ending, and that the chances of a sequel are very slim, I'd be completely interested in reading a sequel to Every Day.
10. Wild Awake: This is kind of the same as Every Day--the ending of this one was open, too, but I'm pretty sure it was ambiguous intentionally. However, I would love to see what happens between Kiri and Skunk in a sequel.
