Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Last week I did this topic in reverse, talking about which books I think would have been better as standalones, but this week I decided to give the actual topic a try. It turned out to be just as hard as I thought it would be. Firstly because I haven’t read a lot of standalones recently, and secondly because most of the ones I have read I felt were perfect just by themselves. Still here are 5 books I managed to find that I could see, possibly maybe having a good sequel.
1. American Panda by Gloria Chao
This book was an interesting read for me, because I really liked the characters but I also had a hard time reading about her controlling family. Still I think a sequel to this book could be really good, something that shows her flourishing without her parents, but also learning how to repair things with them and build the relationship she needs.
2. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I really enjoyed this book, and I think it could be fun to see what happens with Eleanor and Park later in life. I can’t help but wonder how they work things out.
3. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
I need more magical Nimona stories in my life! I’m honestly a little shocked that there hasn’t been more of this comic.
4. Open Earth by Sarah Mirk
Polyam stories set in space? Yes please! I would really love to see this comic turn into a whole series, following the same characters and different characters.
5. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
I loved a lot of books by this author when I was a teen, and this one definitely took its place as my favorite. While I think a entire new novel might be a little too much for this book, a novella prequel and/or epilogue would be cute and fun.
