Top Ten Tuesday – Books you wish would have sequels

Stack of books

I’ve been away for a few weeks on vacation, but I was happy to be back with such a great topic from the Broke and the Bookish Blog. ¬† While I appreciate open endings, allowing you to use your imagination on what might have happened over the years after the book concludes, but other times, I want a concrete ending.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday looks at the top ten books I wish would have a sequel. ¬†These are books that are stand alone or complete but that I could read more and more of.

Let’s start with the Young Adult / New Adult Genre:

Fault in our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars

I just really want to know what Hazel did with the rest of her life.

The Sea of Tranquility

The Sea of Tranquility

This book was so fantastic and I’d love to hear how their future turned out.

Lola and the Boy Next Door

I loved these two and would love to read about all their adventures.

This Song Will Save Your Life

This Song Will Save Your Life

I enjoyed this story and would love to hear how different her future was after this.

My Life Next Door

My Life Next Door

This one, I’ll admit did not end to my satisfaction.

I needed a more thorough conclusion.

Next, let’s move on to Romance:

The Story Guy

The Story Guy

This was a novella, which just begs to have more.

Over the Edge

Over the Edge

Another fabulous story that I’d love to be continued.

Next up, Erotica

While most consider Erotica to be more steam than plot, these are ones I’d love to read more about.

After Hours

After Hours

This was one of those HOT reads that I didn’t want to end.

Breath on Embers

Breath on Embers

This was a short story that I fell in love with.

Would love to read more about these two!

About Last Night

About Last Night

This book was initiation into Ruthie Knox books, and it’s one I’d love to read more of.

So, did any of my books make your list?

I realize that many are current books that are still fresh in my mind, so forgive me if I missed an oldie-but-goodie.

Thanks for reading!

Until next time,



Nose in a Book Reviews: Mine to Take by Cynthia Eden

Mine to TakeMine to Take by Cynthia Eden

My rating: 3 1/2 of 5 stars

3 1/2 stars

This book was a bit of a thriller.

The story revolves around Skye Sullivan, a prima ballerina who lost her ability to dance when she was in a devastating car wreck. Fleeing back to Chicago, she leaves her life and memories in New York. For a while She’s been feeling like someone is watching her. When her apartment is broken into, she seeks out the one man she knows who will help and protect her, Trace Weston.

Skye’s stalker begins to ramp up his terrorizing and the story continues to leave you guessing who the perpetrator is. I enjoyed that part of the story a great deal. My main issue with it is that the hero was excessively possessive of Skye. So much so that it might have gotten a four if he wasn’t such an ass. I get that the story needed that tension, but yeah… he was a wee bit too intense for my independent, feminist ass.

All in all, a quick, sexy and suspenseful read.
