Booking Through Thursday: The Sequel

This week, BTT asks: "If you could get a sequel for any book, what would it be?"

Tough question. Right away, I thought: Don't like sequels -- books or movies. But then I thought about all those series books I read, and they do sort of qualify as sequels. So I guess I don't dislike them so much after all.

Can't think of any book I'd like to see sequel-ized, though. If it's a book I loved, with interesting characters and a thrilling plot, I wouldn't want to chance spoiling it with a follow-up that doesn't measure up. And if it's a book I had to struggle through, why would I ask for more?


  1. I agree with you. I think a good book is hard to follow.

  2. Hi!
    Yea, but wouldn't you like to know what happened to them after the book ended? Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  3. I totally agree with your answer.

  4. I agree, sometimes a sequel is not needed.

  5. I do find some characters hard to say goodbye to.

  6. Sometimes characters just get to me and I'd like to know what happened to them afterwards. Home to Woefield by Susan Juby (read by my book club) is just such an example. I never would have picked that one up on my own but enjoyed it immensely and would love to see a sequel to it. The characters were that good!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
