Top Ten Tuesday: Books I wish Could Have Had Sequels
Brought to you by the Broke and the Bookish

Jeni's Picks:
1. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken: I remember finishing this book and just wishing there was a sequel. I wasn't ready to let the characters go.  

2. The Forbidden Sea by Sheila A. Nielson:  This is my favorite mermaid story. I wish the ending would've been longer. A sequel to this would be awesome. I heard through the grapevine that she is writing another book. I can't wait!!

3. Flecks of Gold by Alicia Buck: This story really surprised me. I bought this at a local author book signing and I wasn't sure I would enjoy it. I loved it and everyone I've lent it to raves about it. I would love for her to write another book in this world. 

4. Warped by Maurissa Guibord: I felt like she left the story a little opened at the end and I would love to see what the Fate's have in store. 

5. Enchanted by Alethea Kontis: When I was going through my books I saw this one and thought I wish she had done a sequel like Jessica Day George did for Princess of the Midnight Ball. Just pick a sibling and tell their story. I didn't realize at the time that she does have a sequel coming out in October named Hero. Which will be about Sunday's sister Saturday.

Emily's Picks

6. The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding. I loved this book, and the author did such an amazing job on world building that I wouldn't mind delving into his London again.

7.  Lament: The Fairy Queen's Deception by Maggie Stiefvater.  So there is a second book, but it's about the friend, James.  And honestly, I want to read more about Deirdre and Luke. I know I need to read the second book, but I really want another book all about Luke and Deirdre, not James.  He wasn't my favorite sidekick.

8. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. This book was interesting and I loved the idea of a whole different life under a city, one with magic and strange beings under foot.  If Mr. Gaiman ever revisited this area, i would be all for another romp in the underground.

9. The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.  I have only read two of Mr. King's novels.  This is one. I liked it, and thought he could write a series on this book.  He wrote it for his daughter, and he should do it again.  I know he has writen the Dark Tower series, but I have not tried reading those.

10. The Hob's Bargain by Patrica Briggs.  I love Patrica Briggs.  Her Mercy Thompson series is the best werewolve series out there, in my opinion, but I really liked her fantasy novel as well.  I know she has several other novels out there, some I have read.  But I really liked this one, and wouldn't mind another one with the Hob.
