Top Ten Books I Needed More…:
- The Night Circus- I just need more pages. Or a never-ending story. Although, it is, of course, perfection in and of itself, but still, this is my wish list and it can be as absurd as I want it to be. So more pages!!!!
- It– Well, this book has lots of pages, but I still want more. More of the Loser Club, past especially, but honestly I’ll take them as they nearing to retirement age adults they’d be now. I just miss them… it might be time for a re-read.
- Ready Player One– I don’t necessarily need a whole sequel, but some fun novellas set in the universe would be fun.
- The Virgin Suicides– every once in awhile I’ll watch a movie and check to see it it’s a book because the movie left me with questions. Usually I’m hoping a book will fill in those answers. But in this case, the book left me with more questions, and maybe it’s better that they aren’t answered, but still, again this is my wish list.
- Scrappy Little Nobody– the book is delightful, the audiobook hilarious, and yes, I realize that Anna Kendrick is still pretty young, but oh, how I wish there were more pages! More stories, more behind the scenes of Pitch Perfect!
- Big Vamp on Campus– this was a novella when I wanted a whole novel. I can’t believe it, but I want more Ophelia, dammit!
- Graceling– there are 3 books in the Graceling series, and I love them all (especially Fire). But Cashore hasn’t published anything since Bitterblue. I don’t necessarily need more books in the Graceling series, but I’ll be sad if she doesn’t come out with more books.
- The Princess Bride– this one I DO want a sequel, a sequel that we, the readers, have been promised. Where the hell is Buttercup’s Baby, William Goldman? Also, I would still like a full, unabridged version of S. Morgenstern’s classic tale.
- Amber House– I loved the first two books, written by a mother and her two daughters, but I’ve been waiting quite awhile for the next book. Rumors are that it’ll be released sometime this year, and I really hope so. The second book really left me dangling.
- When Autumn Leaves– this was a book I bought kind of on a whim. I loved the title, and the hint of magical realism promised. And I loved it. I would definitely like to see more stories set in this town. The author did publish another book this past year, which I plan on tracking down, but it’s not connected at all to When Autumn Leaves.
(Dis)Honorable Shout Out to:
Sigh. My book club read this several years ago for our “Naughty November” book club. I read it because I’m a good book club member and I try hard to read all the books, and I have a pretty good track record. So I read every damn, boring, insipid word in this book. But all the sex? Yeah, not until, literally, the last few pages. It was the most boring “naughty” book I’ve ever read. I don’t even like erotica, but I was expecting a hell of a lot more steaminess from this cover and this title. It’s one of the few 1 star ratings I have on Goodreads, because I usually bail on books that require me to Hate Read to finish.
