It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for another TTT courtesy of That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is…
Standalone Books That Need A Sequel
The prompt this week was MADE for me…are you ready?!?
Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage
I loved this book. I know there are a lot of mixed reviews, but, with the population I have worked with over the years I could absolutely see a child doing this. I am DYING to know what happens to Hannah as she gets older. DYING. DY-ING. Stage knows we want a sequel and I just hope she delivers one day!!!
Into The Hollow by Lynn Vroman
This was a great young adult novel. I just want to know what happens to the kids AFTER high school. They have so much going for them, I need to know what else happens in their future!
A Woman Is No Man by Etaf Rum
This book was just released and I loved it. I would love to see where Deya goes in life and see any struggles she faces. This book focused on Palestinian woman coming to America and I would love to see Rum pen a book about a Palestinian woman adopting more American cultures (while still hanging on to some of her heritage). We already see her breaking away from the tradition of marriage and I would love to see how her story goes…does she marry? Does she have a full career? Oh man…I became attached to Deya!
The Life We Wanted by Kelsey Kingsley
A whirlwind romance. I loved Sebastian and Tabitha. I just need more. I’m a very needy reader and when I fall in love with characters I can never get enough of them! NEVER! I’m a member of Kingsley’s advanced reader team and yes, I will keep bugging her until I get another Sebastian and Tabitha story, haha. The son has to grow up! See, I already have a plot…will he follow in his father’s footsteps? Will his aunt step in and intervene? But I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!!! Go read this book, trust me.
The Silent Patient by Alix Michaelides
BECAUSE WHAT THE %$&# HAPPENS AT THE END OF THIS BOOK!!!!! I NEED TO KNOW! He is so damn manipulative it could go either way. This book was a let down for me and the ending just made it flop for me. I know a lot love it, I get it, the twist was definitely a good one, but, COME ON! I love SOLID endings and they just left us to assume! %@$#@&@(@$*@#^#%@#@%%@$!@
I went with 5 books this week…less than I thought I would come up with. I get attached quickly to characters and find myself always wanting more. I can’t help it. Have you read any of these and agree there should be a second book? Any other books you’ve read where you think there should be a sequel? Let me know!
