Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish Had Sequels

Happy Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Visit them to find out how to participate!! This week's topic is:

Top Ten Six Books I Wish Had Sequels:

6. Wuthering Heights - Okay, I don't really want this story to continue necessarily. When I read this book I always felt like it should be two books, giving more time and attention to each set of characters' story. I wouldve loved these books had they been a pair or a trilogy, rather than one long rambling crazy mash up of nonsense.

5. Handle with Care/My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult - Both of these books were so fantastically amazing, but ended in a way that basically ripped my heart out of my chest and shredded it to little tiny pieces. I wish they had ended differently, or at the very least, rip my heart out then give me a sequel to give me happy things to think about. Give me something here, Jodi! You're killin' me!

4. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant - I guess this sort of doesnt count cause technically the entire bible is a sequel to the real story behind this book, but that doesnt count. I loved reading from a woman's point of view with this book and after I finished it, I searched the stacks for more books like this, and found a couple, but nothing like this one. I want more of this one! I want more of Anita Diamant's writing.

3. Shades of Earth by Beth Revis - This doesnt really count either, cause this one is already a sequel but I loved this series so much that I did not want it to stop. I just wanted to keep reading more and more and more about Amy and Elder and everyone who came to be a part of the story by the third book.

2. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - Asking for a sequel to this book is like asking to have your soul detached from your body over and over. I dont know why I or anyone else would even really want a sequel. So much happened in this book, but so much more didnt happen and there were  so many more instances of time travel to expand upon and cry over and curl up in a ball after reading...

1. DUH - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - I dont really want a sequel to this book necessarily. I just want more. A new series at Hogwarts would be totally OK. A new villain? Or old one, though I dont know how they would make Voldemort come back this time, but Rowling is a genius and I know she can do it. I can't just settle for fanfic of Harry/Ron/Hermione's kids getting into trouble. I need Rowling. I NEED HER!

I only had six this week cause oddly enough, I read a lot of series rather than stand-alones, for this reason particularly. I like having time to develop a relationship with characters and I really dont like to be begging for more at the end. What books do you wish had a sequel? Anyone with me on HP!?
