This weeks topic is Books You Wish Had a Sequel (Standalones that you wish had a sequel or the last book in the series that you wish wasn’t the last). So without further ado I’ll get started…
I understand that it is not possible now for there to be a sequel but now I’m a grown up I would love a sequel about Matilda now (as an adult) I have thought about this alot over the last few years I think it would just be really fascinating.
This is non-fiction book which is like an advice book and it seems to be aimed at teens. I really liked it but I’d like to see one written by her that’s aimed more at people in their 20’s as I think (as a 26year old) it can be just as scary if not more so (no school as safety net) to be in the early stages of adulthood!
I would love for this book to have a sequel but I do think a sequel might ruin it so I’m torn. This is up there as one of my all time favourite books, I loved the characters and the plot etc and I’d love to read more about them but I can understand why it was a standalone.
I have thought a few times that I would quite like to have had a sequel to Water for Elephants about how they adjusted to life after the end or perhaps a prequel from Marlena’s POV about how she got involved in the circus. I just loved this book and was really invested in her as a character that I’d love to see more.
Kind of cheating by picking an author not a book but I was struggling. Follwing the same reasons as Matilda I would love to see a novel of quite a lot of her characters now they are grown up. I loved Jacqueline Wilson books growing up and she always dealt with tricky topics and hard subjects so it would be interesting to know what they are like as adults especially the characters in The Suitcase Kid, Lola Rose, The Illustrated Mom & Girls in Love.
