Top 5 Tuesday: Sequels I Would Sell My Soul For

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly book discussion with a new topic every Tuesday hosted by Meeghan of Meeghan Reads. It’s each blogger’s job to pick five book-related things (though you’re welcome to pick things from other media, if necessary) that fit the topic.

This week’s topic is sequels you would sell your soul for. I’ve chosen to interpret this as books that technically don’t have sequels, but should. In a few cases, sequels have been discussed in some manner but have never been officially announced. Here are the sequels that don’t exist but definitely should.

The Seven Sisters by Neil Gaiman

The alleged sequel to Neverwhere, this book has been listed on Goodreads for ages. The only piece of information available is the title. But Neverwhere is one of my all-time favorite novels and I am dying for more in this world. To quote my Goodreads comment on the page, “NEIL. WHERE IS IT, NEIL.”

The Returned by Victoria Schwab

This one is a bit of a special case. It’s the third and final book in The Archived series, but was pulled from publication due to lack of sales. I’m hoping, now that Schwab has become so popular, the publisher will finally release the conclusion. I mean, hey, they re-released The Near Witch. It could happen.

The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson

So, I think Johnson has said she plans on writing a sequel, but there’s been no new information since. As far as I’m concerned, that means this is still a standalone that needs a sequel. I need more of Cara and Dell and the amazing world (or should I say worlds) Johnson has created. Basically, what I’m saying is that I need a sequel yesterday.

Witches of Ash and Ruin by E. Latimer

I genuinely thought this book was the start of a series when I finished, given how open-ended the conclusion was. Color me shocked when I found out this is, as of now, a standalone. If you need me, you can find me in E. Latimer’s mentions begging for a sequel and the answers to all my questions.

Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Okay, so I don’t want a sequel about Alex and Henry, but I do think it would be awesome to have romances featuring the rest of the Super Six. Maybe June, Nora, or Bea? And make it F/F? Please McQuiston? Pretty please with sexy international relations on top?

What are some sequels you wish existed? Tell me about them in the comments!
