Top 10: Books I Wish Had Sequels

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and this week we are talking about which stand alone books we wish could have gone on longer.  I don’t read alot of stand alone books particularly because they seem way too short and I want to know what happens next with the characters.  So these are a few of my favorites I wouldn’t mind continuing in another installment. :) In no particular order:

The Host
1. The Host by: Stephenie Meyer  I LOVED this book and keep hearing that there may or may not be another, well if there is you can bet I will be in line.

2. The Phantom Tollbooth by: Norton Juster The meaning behind this world that was created and all the knowledge behind it is seriously incredible. 

3. Thirteen Reasons Why by: Jay Asher  I wouldn’t mind seeing where Clay is at in his life and how Hannah and her tapes affected him in the long run!

4. Before I Fall by: Lauren Oliver Much like Thirteen Reasons Why, I would love to see how Sam’s Choices influenced the other characters.  Did she change their lives?

5. Flecks of Gold by: Alicia Buck I love the concept of the Golden Eyes being royalty and the magic all tied together, this world is one of my favorites.

6. The Choice by: Nicholas Sparks There is no doubt I love Travis and Gabby, they have overcome so much, I’d like to see what happens next for them.

7. Keep Holding On by: Susane Colasanti Basically I love Noelle and the majority of Susane Colasanti’s characters, so more in any of these books would be fine by me!

8. River Thunder by: Will Hobbs Technically this is a sequel, but I loved the storyline in both books, and thoroughly entertaining. More please?!

9. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by: Stephenie Meyer A change is perspective was so refreshing in this series and after reading this I just wanted more and more from the Vampire’s perspectives.  Granted we get Bella’s post-vampire change but I loved Bree’s outlook during Eclipse.

10. The Last Song by: Nicholas Sparks Will and Ronnie are amazing and their chemistry is incredible.  I’m definitely okay with seeing where their story had gone.

    Stephanie Meyer has said in interviews that the ‘The Host’ is supposed to be three parts – i sincerely hope she finishes it! I’d love to see how the story line plays out with these new caches of humans with their souls who have “Gone Native”
