Hey, guys! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a Top 5 Wednesday, eh? Guess I wasn’t interested in any of the topics for a bit. But today I’m back with the top 5 books I wish had sequels. If you want to join Top 5 Wednesday or see more info about the group, check out the Goodreads page here! Now here are my picks!
5. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
If I had to pick a favorite book of the year so far, it would probably be this one. The ending was actually quite perfect, if not sad, but I’m just greedy and want even more. I wanted to know what happened to the characters between the ending and the epilogue. This doesn’t need a sequel, but I just want one because I love the characters so, so much.
4. Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins
Okay, if you’ve read this trilogy, you know exactly why I’d want a fourth book. The way this trilogy ended was satisfying, but agonizing at the same time. When I finished, I wanted desperately to know what would happen next given the circumstances of the ending. I can make a pretty educated guess as to what happens, but I just want to know for sure, ya know?
3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Apparently Maggie Stiefvater has considered doing another book in this same world following different characters. And that sounds cool and all, but I adore these characters and want a sequel to their story more than I’d want something new. Once again, there is nothing unsatisfying about the ending, but what can I say? Give me all the fluff and unnecessary details!
2. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
Alright, we all know the real reason why I want a fourth book to add on to this trilogy, and that reason is Nikolai Lantsov. I need to know how my favorite character is doing. Again, Leigh Bardugo has said multiple times that she’d like to go back to the Grishaverse and give Nikolai his own story, so I’ll just sit here waiting and crying until that day comes.
It’s fine. I’m fine.
1. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Does anyone not want this though? Okay, okay, I know there are people who don’t, but I am not one of them! JKR has dropped so much new content, but I wish it was all in book form so it was easier to keep track of. Whether it’s a Marauders prequel, a next generation sequel, or really anything. I just want another book. And I don’t mean in play form even if I am excited for that.

This actually took a bit of thinking on my part, but writing this made me realize that I really wouldn’t have chosen any other books when it came down to it. So tell me – what books do you wish had sequels?
Until next time,
