Hello, all! Today’s top 5 wednesday post is about ‘Books You Wish Had Sequels’! And I don’t really know what to write for this, because I’m usually satisfied by the endings of books… Here’s the example that the Top 5 Wednesday group gave:
“Standalones that you wish had a sequel or the last book in the series that you wished wasnt the last.”
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I really wish that there was a sequel, or at least a short story of …. after this book had finished. Like, a year later, or maybe, from one of the other character’s points of view? I love this book so Freaking Much. I just want MORE of this story. I’m not ready to let all of these babies go.
- Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
I’m actually a little surprised that there wasn’t a short story to accompany the Crimson Bound story like there is for the Cruel Beauty story. I haven’t yet reviewed Crimson Bound, and honestly, I’m going to have to re-read the story to accurately review the book. Otherwise, it’s gonna be a crappy review! Anyway, I want Crimson Bound to have a sequel, because I remember the ending to be so great that there should be a second book.
- November 9 by Colleen Hoover
November 9 was a great book. One I enjoyed reading immensely. I absolutely want there to be a second book, or at least a snippet. Actually, scratch that. I want there to be a second book, because the emotional bond that Fallon and Ben have…is one that is hard for me to forget. I absolutely loved reading these two characters.
- I Was Here by Gayle Forman
I liked the story that this book told enough to want at least a sequel or even a short story. A short story seems more appropriate to who, and what this story was about. And I’d love to read it from Ben’s point of view.
- The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
I would looove to read more of this story. From what I remember, the story left on something like a cliff hanger. The ending felt true, but also felt like there was more supposed to happen.
- The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
For those of us who’ve read this book, we know what happens, and I won’t say what exactly happens… But I have to know, you know? Like, did it happen? We’re they safe? There are a few questions that I would love to have answered!!
I know there are more than 5 books, but that’s okay! There aren’t a lot of books that I want more from, but these are the ones that came to mind.
Thanks for reading!

I thought I read that there might be a sequel to coldest girl. Possibly also darkest part. Great list!
Thanks, Mary! It’d be great if there were going to be one.
Great list. I really want to read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown just haven’t gotten the chance (or purchased it) yet! Same thing with The Darkest Part of the Forest. I actually own We Were Liars, just haven’t gotten to it yet.
Check out my list?
I really liked The Darkest Part of the Forest too! It was so mystical and different. I think the next book I’ll read by Holly Black would be The Coldest Girl in Coldtown only. Great list.
Here’s my T5W if you’d like to check it out:
I would suggest that you read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown with as few breaks as possible. I tried reading it slowly with a friend, and it got to the point where we were both like “Lets just read it in one sitting” and we did and it was waaay better than reading a few chapters per week. 🙂
