Tuesday, August 6, 2013 9:34 AM with 29 comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Click the link to go to their site to see the original list for today plus links to a whole slew of other blogs. After you read mine, of course.

So I'm sure I'll be stalking at least some TTT posts today, but today is also the last day I have to finish (I'm such a procrastinator) school work for my LAST graduate class *woot, woot*, so most of the day will probably be spent in a hair-pulling, cold-sweat frenzy, but I promise to visit all those who drop by as soon as I can. Happy Tuesday, everyone.

Today's topic is: Books I wish had a sequel

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks This Is What Happy Looks Like Golden  Baby Proof Drink, Slay, Love The Hunt (Rachel Benjamin, #4) Dead Rules
Parallel 3 Willows: The Sisterhood Grows Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

I think this book is pure perfection as is, but I could read about Frankie all day. She was only a sophomore when she shook up her school the way she does here. Imagine her as a senior...or in college.
This is What Happy Looks Like  by Jennifer E. Smith
I really enjoyed this inconspicuous summer romance, but the ending was a bit ambiguous. I'd love to know what happens next between the sweet couple.
Golden by Jessi Kirby
I'd love to follow Parker into her post high school years. 
Baby Proof by Emily Giffin
I loved Claudia and Ben and would love to see where they are now.
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
I tend to shy away from vampire novels these days, but I loved snarky Pearl and wouldn't mind reading more of her story.
The Hunt by Jennifer Sturman
So this is actually the fourth book in the Rachel Benjamin series, but it definitely didn't seem like it should have been the last book. This one was released in 2007 by the now debunk Red Dress Ink, so I'm not expecting more books, but I really liked this breezy-mystery series and am bummed that I don't know what happened to Rachel and her boyfriend, Peter.
Dead Rules by Randy Russell
Honestly, I didn't love this book, but I did think it was an interesting take on life after life and think it almost needs a sequel. 
Parallel by Lauren Miller
This parallel worlds book was really fun and I'd love to know what happens next.
3 Willows by Ann Brashares
I recently gave this spin-off of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series book a second look and really enjoyed it. I thought this book was going to be the first in a series, but it's been a few years since it was released, so I guess not.
Harry Potter by JK Rowling
I would love to go back to Hogwarts. Surely there is still some evil in the world for their children to fight...Hermione could be the Headmaster. Harry could be the dark arts teacher...

Those are just a few of the stories I'd like to see continued. What books made your list this week? Link me up!

  4. I haven't read Baby Proof. I loved Something Borrowed and Something Blue. I will have to add that to my TBR list! I still have to read the last book in the HP series. I finished book 6 last year. I should get to it soon :)

  16. How could i forget DRINK SLAY LOVE? That book was awesome!

    Fabulous choices :)

  17. HERMIONE WOULD BE A KICK ASS HEADMASTER!! Okay, sorry, just freaked out in the best way when I read that. Nice to see Golden and This Is What Happy Looks Like on here. I've been wondering if I should give them a spin and this makes me think I should!

  18. I completely agree with Harry Potter. I am not quite ready to leave that world behind!

    My TTT.

  19. Parallel definitely NEEDS a sequel. The ending was so AHHH!
    Awesome list & thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:

  20. Wouldn't it be awesome to have more Harry Potter? It makes me sad that she won't write any more children's books. Maybe one day. Thanks for visiting my TTT.

  21. Did you get your work done Natalie?! :D LOL. I feel you though. We started school yesterday and I'm not used to getting back into the grind. I'm exhausted. I freaked out on Parallel. I mean, seriously shouting 'Are you kidding me' at the top of my lungs I was SO mad! And Golden! I'm so glad you liked that book too!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier girl!

    Alice @ Alice in Readerland

  28. Parallel is a stand alone? Huh. I think I'll have to pick it up sooner rather than later then. :)


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
