This week’s Top Ten Tuesday challenges us to list…
Top Ten Books I Wish Could Have Had Sequels
1) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte … I’d love to see how the children’s lives turned out and how their parents’ actions affected them
2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling … I wish this series could go on forever and ever! Witnessing Harry’s career and how he raises his family (something he never had) would be fascinating
3) Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen … A great angle to a sequel would be finding out what happens to some of the other, more minor, characters
4) Somebody Up There Hates You by Hollis Seamon … While I loved getting to imagine a less-abrupt ending for myself, I also want to know what the author thought of the characters’ futures
5) The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger … It would be great to see how Andie’s career turned out after her stint working with Miranda Priestly (actually, Revenge Wears Prada came out just a few months ago!)
6) Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier … This one’s a reality too, in the form of Rebecca’s Tale by Sally Beauman
7) Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson…as a fan of Jenny’s blog I know there’s A LOT more where that came from!
8) Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn … Dynamic characters like Nick and Amy always deserve more page time!
9) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky … I want to see how Charlie’s doing after a few years, perhaps when he’s out of high school and on his own
10) 11/22/63 by Stephen King…Maybe not a sequel to this story, but another time travel book with another historical event and a possible different ending would make for great reading
