T5W: Books That Could Have Gone on Forever!


It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. Today is all about stand-alones as well as series that could have easily done with a sequel. I am sure there are toooons of books that would have deserved a continuation, but here are my Top 5 (which are unsurprisingly books I mention all the time)


The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

It certainly doesn’t have to be about Celia and Marco, but I do wish to hear more about the circus itself. It could be a book of short stories … something like the Bane Chronicles or so. I just can’t let go of the magic. I CANNOT! AND I WON’T!

Every Day by David Levithan

Another Day so doesn’t count! I am sorry if you really enjoyed Another Day, but I have no desire to pick it up whatsoever. I want a real continuation of the story, because in my opinion Every Day stopped right when the most exciting part was about to happen! So, I don’t need a book from a different POV retelling what was in book one, I need to know what happens next!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This really shouldn’t be news to you either. I know that all is good and well with my beloved Liesel and Max, but I would give everything to know what happened in between those years. What all did they do? How were their families? What made their life such a good one? ANSWERS! GIVE THEM TO ME!

The Host by Stpehenie Meyer

So, technically this is meant to be series. The Seeker and The Soul have been on Goodreads forever declared as part 2 and 3 BUT they’ve been there for years and I have seen no change, gotten no news. Therefore, I am not exactly hopeful that it will happen for real, but it sure would be nice.

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff

I’ve mentioned this so many times before. The books is called “How I Live Now”, basically her last sentence is “And that’s how I live now” but the things is I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU LIVE NOW. I just don’t, but I am a curious person by nature, so I would like to know. You see? Bound to have a sequel!

Apparently I was really into writing all caps today … What are some books you think need sequels?

  1. Yes. I could definitely use a few Night Circus novella’s. A nice little collection of life in the circus would be ideal, especially if we got to check in with Celia and Marco again.

  2. omg yes! I cant even explain how much I dont want to read Another Day! Every Day was pure brilliance and I just know if I read Another Day it will stain my memory of Every Day! The Host is actually incredible and totally gets a bad rep because of Twilight but I’ve been waiting for a sequel for what feels like 10 years hahaha! I thought for sure after they made the movie she’d finally write them but nope didn’t happen. I’m thinking the same as you, that it’ll probably never happen 😦

    • I guess Levithan was all about the relationship in Every Day and thought that was the most important thign about the story, but it just got interesting when we found out there were more like A and when he ran. I don’t get how he could just stop with that?
      And I don’t get the bad rep for the Host at all. I don’t hate Twilight though, so that probably helps.

  3. Oh my God! I would love for there to be short stories for the Night Circus! That book seriously could have gone on forever!

  4. OKAY GIRL BUT FOR REAL. The Night Circus is literally the only circus/carnival book I’ve loved up to date. All those other books comparing themselves to it can’t get up to its level. I would frekaing die for a sequel, but am also very satisfied with the way it ended. :’)
