This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is dedicated to those series you just wish had more books. I’m sure you can already guess a few that are going to be on my list.
1. Harry Potter by J.K Rowling
But I don’t want more books, I want a whole new series about Harry’s kids lives, and world post-Voldemort. I think it would be so interesting to pop back into that world and get a sneak peak of how badly Albus Severus is teased and how great a Quidditch player James is and how adorable Hermione and Ron’s relationship is. I just want maybe one more book that outlines their relationships as adults with each other and children.
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I love love loved the way this series ended, but I also wouldn’t complain about a spin-off from Peeta’s perspective. Wouldn’t it be great to see the third book from his head? To hear all about what he went through? I was a huge Peeta fan, so maybe it’s just me. But I think a Peeta spin-off would be fantastic.
3. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments)
I’m not a huge fan of the spin-off, but I would love to read more about Clara’s life. I’ve actually been thinking about re-reading this series since it was so great the first time around.
4. Wake by Lisa McMann (Dream Catcher)
This series is all about a guy who can jump into people’s dreams. It’s terrifying and thrilling and amazing all wrapped in to one. This was another fantastic series that I wish I could read more of. If I remember correctly, it ends very sadly and I wish it didn’t. I wish there could be more to the series and more to the main character’s story.
5. Marked by P.C. Cast (House of Night)
I loved this series…until there were too many books. This is one I wish had quit while it was ahead. It was such a great story with great twists and turns, but more and more books kept coming, and it was just too much. I feel similarly about “Grey’s Anatomy”. You’re on your 12th season Grey’s, you’re done. There are like 15 House of Night series books — it’s done. (Other books that needed to just stop: Pretty Little Liars.
