This masterpiece of a book ends on a cliffhanger. It does have sequels but they are written by different authors. I really wish there was a sequel written by Margaret Mitchell herself.


2. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

The only reason is that the ending to this amazing series wasn’t satisfactory.


3. The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

I’m so curious to know what happens in Charlie’s life after this book. One book just isn’t enough for a character like him. Hmm..maybe I’ll look up some fanfiction 🙂


4. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

I just want more of these characters and their beautiful story!

I recently read this book and it was like nothing I’ve read before. I was sad to complete it and wanted more. I’ll also be posting a full review of it soon!


What are some of the books you wish had sequels. Let me know down below.

  1. Eleanor & Park! I forgot about the ending to that one, I would have included it. I definitely would love a sequel! Or, like, a novella. Something more. 😀

  2. Gosh, I totally agree with the Perks of Being a Wallflower. Honestly, I just wish Stephen Chbosky would write something else- Perks was such a poignant, devastating and profound read, and I grew so incredibly attached to the characters. I love it as it is- it obviously doesn’t NEED a sequel, but sometimes you just want to touch base and check on your favorite characters. 🙂

    1. I agree! It doesn’t need a sequel but I will never be ready to say goodbye to that story and characters. I was so dissappointed when I found out that Stephen Chbosky doesn’t have any other books. I did like the movie adaptation 🙂

  3. I haven’t read Gone with the Wind. I often think about it, but it’s one of those books that’s so ingrained in American culture that I feel I know so much about it that reading it wouldn’t be worthwhile. I also have never been able to watch the movie straight through. :/

    1. We all have our books that we often think about reading but never get too 🙂 For me, this huge book was really worthwhile as I didn’t know much about various themes in it. I also really liked the movie! Anyways, thanks for commenting 😀

      1. Yeah, Pride and Prejudice is also on my lists of books I should but never actually do read. I know so much about it. I’ve seen both movies multiple times. I started reading it once, but it just seemed so familiar that I couldn’t go on. Maybe I should start with some other Austen first.

        1. The only book by Jane Austen I’ve read is Pride and Prejudice and watched a few adaptations too. I bought Sense and Sensibility about a year ago but never got around to reading it.
