Booking Through Thursday (Oct. 13): Sequel

This week, Booking Through Thursday, asks:
If you could get a sequel to any book, what would it be?
A lot of the books I've read that I want a sequel to are usually part of a series or have been planned as a series or trilogy already. So they are out of the question. Also, there are those books that I love which I wish had a sequel but I know would only ruin the original. Most of the time I am happy with what the author has decided for the ending, however there are times when I want to know more, learn more, and get involved more with the characters. It's hard to think of one off the top of my head...but if I had to, I would choose Mostly Happy by Pam Bustin, Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver or Angel by Laura Lee. Though I know those novels ended where they should have, I want to know more. I care about the characters in those books enough to want to know what happens to them. Will they live happily ever after or endure more pains as they grow up? I think there are better examples I could have chosen but these ones are what pop into my head right away.

So what are the books you wish had a sequel? Leave a comment down below or at BTT! :)
