Top Ten Tuesday: Wishful Sequels

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I'm one of those people who would be very happy if I got to know everything there is to know about every character I've ever read.  That being said, 9 times out of 10 I want a sequel.  I want to know what happens after the events and why people make the decision that they do and what consequences they have to deal with now.  So here are a few of the books that stick out in my mind right now.

1. The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke - I would love to know if those children got into anymore trouble.  I have a feeling even Ida and Victor would take part again.

2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury - I would like to see what happens to the new city, if the intellectuals can bring back the importance of knowledge and books at all.  That would be very interesting to me.

3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - I want a sequel.  I want to see Darcy and Elizabeth happy and married and wonderful.  I know there are sequels out there, but I would have love for Jane Austen to give us some insight into their lives after marriage.

4. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - This one might be a little bit cheating because we know a sequel is coming.  However, I want to know what happens to everyone now!  Patience is a virtue that sometimes I just don't have. 

5. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - I really enjoy this book, but again, I want more! I would love to know how their relationship progressed especially because of the long distance aspect of it.  I think it would be an interesting story.

6. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - I would love to Scout as a grown woman, see how she grew up, what's happening in her life and how she is changing the world because we all know that the daughter of Atticus Finch will change the world.

7. The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller - This is one of those books that show nerdy people in a positive light and I would love to see how Maddie further embraces her nerdy self especially now that she has someone to be nerdy with.

8. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan - I want more Tiny Cooper!

9. The Help by Kathryn Stockett - I would love to see where all these characters are after the this story.  It's such heavy and important subject, I'd like to see how they handle it after the fact.

10. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - I haven't finished this book yet, but I have a feeling that I'll be wanting more of these characters and this tale.

  1. Really great choices this week. A lot of these it would be great to have sequels for. Loved the Night Circus and Miss Peregrine's.
