Today’s topic is “Book Series I Wish Had More Books.” These are in no particular order.
5- The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan
I love this series. I loved how it ended- perhaps one of the greatest endings to a series I have ever read. But I just want more. The book are so short– a little under two hundred pages each, and I would read them all in a day, sometimes two in a day. For a thirteen book series, this ended way too quickly. And even though I loved every second of it, I wouldn’t mind if there was a little more.
4- Anna and the French Kiss companion series by Stephanie Perkins
These books are so freaking cute. I didn’t much care for Isla and the Happily Ever After, but the other two were nice, fun, fluffy reads. And the best part about this is that there CAN be more books, since it wasn’t a definite series- just different stories.
3- The Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin
I don’t talk about this series much. I didn’t hate the ending like a lot of people did, but I didn’t love it either. I thought the third book was rushed. I didn’t care for the solution of all the mystery, so I would definitely have liked either a longer third book, or another book all together.
2- To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before duology by Jenny Han
I went into the second book expecting to see Lara Jean and Kavinsky’s relationship play out, and I was severely disappointed. Even by the end of the second book, I don’t really know how Lara Jean and Kavinsky are as a couple, so I could do with another book that actually showed me how my ship plays out.
1- the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Surprise surprise. I love Jo for sticking to her decision of ending the series in seven books. A lot of authors don’t do that- they see that their series is a success and they carry it on forever (*cough* Cassandra Clare *cough). But Jo didn’t do that; her series is a world-wide phenomenon, and she still says that the story ended when it was supposed to, and that’s that. I don’t think I even want more books because it’s such a perfect series. BUT if Jo HERSELF ever decided that there was more to tell, I would trust her and read it in the blink of an eye.
