This week’s topic is
Top Ten Books I Wish Had Sequels
Surprisingly, I had a hard time coming up with many for this list.
1. Pride & Prejudice
I know there are many out there that try, but almost every single one I have reads has failed miserably! I wish Miss Austen had given us a little glimpse into the married life of Lizzy and Darcy.
2. The Book Thief
I know this might seem like an odd choice, but I thought that books was so mesmerizing I wish I could keep reading-I might have to do a reread now!
3. To Kill A Mockingbird
How did Scout grow up? And Jem? Did Atticus ever remarry? Sigh….
4. Gone With the Wind
There was an attempt, but it fell quite short of the beauty of Margaret Mitchell’s masterpiece.
5. The Help
I want to hear more from Milly and Abilene. And how Skeeter made out in NYC!
6. Harry Potter
I have a feeling this will be on lots of lists today. I know there were 7 books, but I still want to know how each year in Harry’s life is going!
I think a fun list would be books that were made into sequels that never should have been written!
good books all today–I did like Harry Potter but was very glad when it ended. kelley—the road goes ever ever on
I very nearly put The Help on my list too. I really enjoyed it and would love to know how the characters carried on.
After months of procrastination, I’m finally about to pick up The Book Thief. It’s the book that’s recommended to me most often that I haven’t read and the movie will be out fairly soon.
I wouldn’t mind a Pride and Prejudice sequel if it was written by Austen.
It actually took me three tries to read The Book Thief- I thought it was odd that it was narrated by “Death”, but it was amazing- I can’t wait to hear if you like it- it is hard when so many recommend a book for it to live up to the hype!
Excellent list! I see that great minds think alike :).
Gone With the Wind all the way! I can’t believe I didn’t think of it.
Great list! To Kill a Mockingbird would be a fabulous book to see a sequel from. I would LOVE more Harry Potter too. 🙂
Harry Potter made my list too. I’m just not done with the wizard world yet!
HP is on a lot of lists that I’ve seen so far. Understandable.
I haven’t read any of these!
