Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Love a Sequel For

Hello everybody! Today, I’m taking part in Top Ten Tuesday, for which today’s theme is books you’d like a sequel for. I only have 6 on my list because I couldn’t come up with a full 10, but I’d really love sequels for all the ones I’ve listed. Onto the post!

The Eye of the North– this was Sinéad O Hart’s debut, and I really enjoyed it. It was such a wonderful adventure with lovable characters, and I definitely think the possibility of a sequel was there from the ending.

The Star Spun Web– I’d also love a sequel to Sinéad’s second book, because again it was such a phenomenal adventure and I love the characters so much. In this case there’s also the fact that a few loose ends were very definitely left that hinted at what a second book in this world could be. I still have a lot of questions even though it was super satisfactory as a standalone, and I’d be delighted if a sequel got announced.

Brightstorm– this is a little bit of a cheat because I know a sequel is on the way, but I have to wait till 2020 so I’m still counting it. Though Brightstorm wrapped up really well, there are still so many loose threads that could be explored, the world was amazing and I want to see more and I love these characters a lot.

Reel Friends 3- I really liked the first two books in this series, and I’m so sad that Catnip never published the 3rd in the trilogy, which was planned then cancelled. It was due to be Hannah’s story, and I’d really like to read it still. These books were about friendship and film making and finding yourself, and they were so enjoyable.

The Girl Who Walked on Air- this is my favourite of Emma Carroll’s books, and I’d love to see Gabriel and Louie face a new enemy or challenge in their circus lives. I also just want more of those characters in my life, as well as the super fun setting of the circus they live in/work for, and the found family vibes. Also, Pip is one of the best animal characters ever and I need more of him being precious in my life.

Boy in the Tower- this one is entirely selfish, tbh. I just want to see how things are going for Ade and his friends/family after the events of BITT, because they are all wonderful and I hope they’re living very happy lives despite all the really awful stuff they went through.

What book would you most love to read a sequel for that doesn’t have one at the moment? I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. I haven’t read any of the books on your list this week, but if they’re all good enough to need sequels then I’m going to have to read them soon! I’ve heard so many good things about Sinéad’s writing (and about Brightstorm!) so I need to stop sleeping on them and get hold of copies.

  2. This is basically a reminder of half the books I keep promising to read! Boy in the Tower, Girl Who Walked On Air, Brightstorm…
    I’d love a sequel to Sylvia Bishop’s The Secret of the Night Train.

    1. Ooh I remember saying that in my review of Secret of the Night Train! And you have no idea how excited I am for you to read all those you’ve mentioned! Btw while I am speaking to you and remember, what do you think of Twister? I keep meaning to finally read it but something is making me a tiny bit hesitant somehow…

      1. It’s ages since I read it so I’m a bit hazy on the details but seem to recall it being fairly enjoyable but thinking it felt like they’d tried a bit too hard, like they were trying to tick every MG fantasy box. But, that aside, there was a lot to like about it.
        Also, I didn’t like Polar Bear Explorer’s Club because I felt like that had tried to cram in all sorts and chucked too much in and I know you really liked that, so it might just be me being super critical! I definitely enjoyed Twister more than that!

  3. I wouldn’t say they’re similar books but my negative thoughts about them are for the sane reason if that makes sense.
    But I did think Twister was enjoyable enough and I do think you’ll like it.x
