Top Ten Standalone Books That Need a Sequel – A Top Ten Tuesday Post
Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl since January of 2018, these weekly blog post link up features a variety of book-related topics. This week we all focus on Standalone Books That Need a Sequel. My list is quite diverse, so there should be something for everyone. Let’s get started!
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – who does not like Neil Gaiman! I don’t know about you, but I can not get enough of any of his characters, no matter which book, so, all of them need sequels, or be turned into a series!
Sunshine by Robin McKinley – a vampire fairy tale, how cool is that! Very cool, actually, that is why I want to read more – just don’t expect your usual vampire story, when you read this book!
Beneath the Citadel’ by Destiny Soria – I love character-driven stories, especially when it comes to anything in the fantasy genre, and this book did not disappoint. Cassa, Evander, Alys, Newt, and a few others, tell their story, but I did not want their story to end with just one book. Which makes it a perfect novel for this list!
‘To Kill a Kingdom’ by Alexandra Christo – a darker version of the Little Mermaid, with well-written fight-scenes, and pirate-like princes. More, please!
The Search by Nora Roberts – In my eyes, Nora Roberts is one of the Greats! I have not run across any of her books I disliked, and The Search is one of my favorite of hers!
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne – here is a romantic comedy for you, that I really loved, which is not an easy feat, considering that this is not my favorite genre, generally speaking. However, Sally Thorne won me over, with her wit, and well-woven plot, that made me ask for more.
The Paper Swan by Leyla Attar – this book is a lot darker than the last one on this list, so be forewarned! However, it is still a great read, that I could not forget for a while. Time for a sequel!
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty – whenever there is a large assemble cast that are all wonderfully developed, it is hard not wanting to know more, to spend more time with them individually, or at least get one more book to do them all justice.
Beware of Mortals and Their Birthdays by Bill Alive – this one is a short story, however, it is a very well written one, so naturally, I want to spend more time with these immortals!
All I Ever Wanted by Emily Griffin – Tom, Nina, and Lyla might not seem like they would have much in common at first, but they are neverless thrown together by circumstance in this contemporary read. But, like with every book on this list, there is so much room for more exploration into their lives, and what will happen next, that a sequel would be nice.
Which books do you think should have a sequel? Have you read any of the books on my list? How did you like them? I am looking forward to hearing from you in the comment section below!
