Top Ten Tuesday #37

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Standalone Books I Wish had a Sequel

This week’s prompt is “Favorite Words.” While I love words, I wasn’t feeling the topic this morning. I’ve decided to do a past prompt that I didn’t get a chance to do instead. It is “Standalone Books I Wish had a Sequel.” Here are my top ten books:

Technically, THE HOST is supposed to be the first book in a series. I haven’t seen any other books in the series and I’d really like a sequel at least. I think THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN, ATLANTIA, and SUNSHINE feel more like middle books in a trilogy. The other six books are just stories I’d like to check in on.

Just for funsies, here are five of my favorite words:






What about you? Which books or words made your list this week? Do we have any in common?

    Fun — and cattywampus happens to be a word I love!! I wish Sunshine had a sequel too — I loved that book so much (and I’m probably due for a reread). I’m also excited to see Coldest Girl on your list — I plan to finally read it in the next few weeks!

      I’d like to reread SUNSHINE some time too. 😀 It’s definitely been a while, more than a decade. I hope you enjoy THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN as much or more than I did. 😀

    That is a nice idea for TTT. I love it. Yes, there are quite a few books where I wish they had a sequel. I hope at least a few of these will get one.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week which is about my favourite names of places, locations that sound like a dream.

    I hadn’t read any of the books on the list, so I can’t comment on whether or not they need a sequel 🙂 I do like the words you chose and there are a few I hadn’t heard of and am seeing for the firs time:
