This month we’ve asked our librarians to tell us which stand-alone books they think need a sequel. Read their responses below!
Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis still freaks me out a little. So many of the subplots were taken from actual things and events that Ellis discovered as a journalist in the earliest years 0f the web, when it was still wild. The back of the book (that I have at least) comes with every link that inspired the story; some of which were broken and lost by the time the book was published. I’d love another weird story investigating the dark web these days and the awful and hilarious events that could tangle them all.
Ellis is a weird and brilliant storyteller. I just always want more of his work.
So much cool stuff and interesting characters in Power Up by Kate Leth, I just can’t help but wanting to see this world & these relationships developed even more!
I fell so in love with Juliet in Juliet Takes A Breath by Gabby Rivera and I would love to see more of her journey towards figuring out who she is and what she ends up doing with her life!
Paul’s powers in Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl and I’d love a novel that explores that aspect a little more, even with a different character!
I can’t say too much about what piece of Confessions of the Fox by Jordy Rosenberg I’d like to see explored without spoiling things, but the ending of this book means that it’s ripe for a sequel or spin-off!
A Scanner Darkly by Phllip K. Dick: For the sake of spoilers I will keep this vague, but I would really like to know what happens after a certain character is placed in a certain type of facility (those who’ve read the book know what I am hinting at).
Things We Lost In The Fire by Mariana Enriquez : It’s a short story comp. But many of these story could be turned into full length books or novelas.
Nevada by Imogen Binnie – It just… ends, and that’s not fair.
Which books do you think need a sequel? Let us know in the comments below!
