I am a huge fan of standalones, so it's not often that I feel as though a book needs a sequel. In fact, the majority of sequels I've read recently haven't needed to exist: recycled plot lines, little character development... They just get so dragging.
But these five are different.
I would love it if these five books had sequels, because they actually have unresolved tension and the possibility to go further.
5) 'Terminated' by Rachel Caine
4) 'Looking For Alaska' by John Green
3) 'Fangirl' by Rainbow Rowell
I love Cath and Levi, and I'd love to read more of their story and adventures in college. I was excited when 'Carry On' was announced, because it links with 'Fangirl', but it's not strictly a sequel - I still need more.
2) 'Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda' by Becky Albertalli
This is one of my favourite books, and is perfect exactly as it is. It works brilliantly as a standalone, but I just really want to revisit Simon!
1) 'The Year We Fell Apart' by Emily Martin
I only read this a few days ago, but there's a lot of opportunity for companion novels because the supporting cast of characters is very rich.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Five Wednesday! Are there any books you really wish had sequels?
