Top Ten Tuesday | Standalone Books That Need a Sequel

Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 5.26.31 PM

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

This weeks prompt is standalone books that need a sequel. This one is hard for me because 90% of the time, I am usually satisfied with stand alone books. Series can be very daunting to me however, I do have four stand alone books I would love to see sequels for.

1. The Upside of Unrequited by Becki Albertali

This book is one of my ALL time favorite books. In this book we follow Molly who is an identical twin. I would love to hear more about her twin, Cassie and maybe a story from her point of view.

2. Sadie by Courtney Summers

I think a majority of people who have read this book would agree, the ending did not provide complete closure. I was VERY confused. Maybe not a full sequel but a short story would suffice.

3. They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

The world in this book is SO intriguing and I think it would be great to see a companion novel set in the same world. Maybe with the same group of friends?

4. The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

I would LOVE to see how both main characters are adapting after everything that went down. I think that there is still so much story and potential here. Maybe its because this book didn’t live up to the hype for me and I just want more.

 

This was a difficult Top Ten Tuesday for me (Hence why I chose 4 books and not 10). I would love to hear what books you think need sequels? What stand alone books are your favorite??

Top Ten Tuesday

Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 5.26.31 PM

Happy Tuesday! This will be my first time participating in Top Ten Tuesday. This tag is from That Artsy Reader Girl and this weeks prompt is “Upcoming Releases I’m On the Fence About (these are the books you need help deciding if they’re worth adding to your TBR or not.)” This one was kind of hard for me to decide so I picked 5 books that I am on the fence about.

Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly is a Cinderella retelling. The reason I am on the fence about this book is that retellings can be hit or miss for me. I think the reason is because I have high expectations for nostalgia for the original fairytale, and most of the time it’s a let down. We will see if I pick this one up.

How to Make Friends In The Dark by Kathleen Glasgow is a book about a girl named Tiger dealing with the grief from the loss of her mother. I have a hard time with books that are filled with grief. I have to be in the right mindset to read them. I have heard good things about Kathleen’s other book Girl in Pieces, so I might pick this book up if I am in the right mindset to read it.

The Girl King by Mimi Yu. This is a high fantasy set in Asia. High Fantasy is a hit or miss for me and I have a hard time picking it up. I have read REALLY good high fantasy books, but I am always SO intimidated to read them. This is something I am hoping to get over in 2019

Enchantée by Gita Trelease. This is a historical fiction/fantasy tale set in Paris. These are all qualities in a book that interest me however, the reason I on the fence about this book is that I have seen a lot of mixed reviews about it from reviewers I trust. I might wait until more people have read it and decide from there if it is something I want to pick up.

Storm & Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout. The synopsis of this book sounds SO up my alley. Fantasy/Paranormal/Romance is my cup of tea, however I have read some reviews that this book has characters from Jennifer’s other series, Dark Elements and knowing myself, I am going to want to read those books first. And I have a large enough TBR as it, I will have to wait and see more reviews to see if its worth going down that rabbit hole.

 

What books are you on the fence about coming out in 2019?
