Books that Need Sequels, like, Yesterday

Sorry this post is so late today!! I’ve been away from the computer a lot and so didn’t have time to write/add pics/schedule it like normal.  (and I’m still looking for guest posts please!)

As part of the #BroodyBFF Challenge 4, I have to come up with a post to write about… SEQUELS! (this post is super duper late but I was having a bit of a rough blogging patch so I’m trying to make it up) Now, admittedly I don’t read a lot of series in general just because I don’t really like the added pressure of needing to read multiple books to get a complete story, so this is a little bit hard for me.  So, I decided to write this post on books that I’ve read that I would LOVE to read a sequel about, whether it be because they left some things unsolved or I just loved the characters that much.

Title links go either to the review, if I have one, or Goodreads.

The Fourth Monkey

The Fourth Monkey

This book wasn’t one of my favorites in the world, but it was certainly a solid read, and I enjoyed it 90% of the time I was reading it.  I think Barker set it up to be the first in a series, but I haven’t heard anything definite about him continuing it, so I wanted to add it to this list just to be safe.  There is a really clear direction that the sequel could go, and I would love to hear more about what some of the people in the novel do on their next adventures.

Gone Girl

Gone Girl

Okay… anyone who’s read Gone Girl has thought at one time or another that there should be a sequel named Psycho Bitch where we explore Amy and Nick’s entire relationship and how it goes down now that, well, everything has gone down.  Flynn already made up a title, so now she just has to go for it. what are you waiting for!?!?!? If I could only have one other book written ever again, this would be the one that I would beg for politely request.

Little Bee

Little Bee

This is one of those books where you fall in love with the characters and then just can’t get enough of them.  Obviously there was a pretty set ending, so I guess what I want is a reversal and revisionist history, but like UGH WHY CAN’T WE.  The characters were so well developed and now they’re just sitting there, and both Bee and Sarah were incredible and Charlie and so what’s the point in not changing everything and having them live their lives as they were born to do it.

Final Girls

Final Girls

Final Girls is my favorite thriller of the year, and it was sort of set up for a sequel because of the way it ended, although I think it would have to be about a completely different person, with Quincy being just a side character instead of the MC.  Still I really enjoy Sager’s writing style and would love him to publish another story!!!

The Roanoke Girls

The Roanoke Girls

I freaking loved this book and I need to know what is going to happen to my favorite ship ever as they ride off into the sunset.  Sure, the sequel would be more of adult rom fic instead of a thriller, but that could be super cute and fun and when you’re this invested in a particular character, it doesn’t matter what the genre is as long as they’re in it.

What books would you want a sequel to? Have you read any of these books? Which characters do you love so much that you would read literally anything about them? Let me know!

I read and I write about it. If I'm not online or with my nose in a book, I can probably be found at the basketball court.

  1. Unfortunately, I haven’t read any of these books, so I can’t really say much. But I need the third book in the Kingkiller Chronicles, like, yesterday. So do all fans of the series. Two of them are out and fabulous and it’s been years since the last one came out and Pat Rothfuss is still alive and I don’t understand why it’s not published already! *wipes brow after that long rant*

    1. that’s the worst!! I’ve never even heard of the Kingkiller Chronicles, but I kind of want (and don’t want) to look into them now that I know they’re good and unfinished…. That’s exactly how I feel about the song of ice and fire series, GRRM is 2 years behind schedule

  2. I haven’t read any of these (the shame!) but I did see the Gone Girl movie and YES I have questions about what happens next.😱 A sequel would totally work for that! And I just finished reading Aristotle And Dante Discover the Secrets Of The Universe yesterday and it neeeeds a sequel so so SO bad.

    1. I want to read that book SO BADLY but I don’t own it and so I think I’ll have to wait for my library to stock it… You NEED to read some of Gillian Flynn’s books, even though they’re not your typical genre the psycho mystery element is amazing and I think you’d enjoy 🙂

    1. Oh I loved that series!!! The first one was a movie and I remember really enjoying it. I don’t remember it well enough that I’d be able to jump into a sequel without refreshing first though

        1. haha, I preferred the books to LOTR too, and I think I watched the movies when I was too little to be that skeptical about them. The books were incredible, I remember that much 🙂
