Tiny Navajo Reads: Top Ten Stand-alone Sequels


March 12, 2019 by TinyNavajo

Hi guys! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This time around we’re talking about stand-alone books that deserve a sequel. Now, I’m not sure that I have ten stand-alones that I believe deserve a sequel, but as we explore my bookshelves, we shall see!

The Book of M by Peng Shepherd

Oh my goodness! I would love to have a second book that follows M so that we know more of her story after the end of the book, after we know the beginning of her story.

Sourdough by Robin Sloan

I’m not sure that I would technically enjoy a second book, unless it was to follow a very small secondary character, but I would enjoy a new book by Robin Sloan. His stuff is amazing!


The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill

Okay, this book was amazing and I want to find out what happens to Gaia after the end of the book. I won’t spoil it, you need to read it yourself!

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

The premise of the book feels like it needs the open ending because life is about open endings, but I want to know what happened not only to April but to the Carls as well.


The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell

This is one my favorite nonfiction books and I would love to read another diary of Shaun’s daily life as a bookseller!


The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Okay, this is one my favorite books EVER! I want to see how the circus is doing now that Poppet, Widget, and Bailey have taken over the running of the circus.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

I remember buying this book because I needed a fluffy book to read at work one day and this was it. I’m curious how the main characters continued on in their life.

The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell

This mystery is one that I want to see more of! If not a book sequel, then maybe a companion novel that focuses on someone else.

A Study in Emerald by Neil Gaiman

I want more graphic novels based in this Sherlock Holmes universe. It sounds flippin’ amazing and I want to know more!

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K Choi

This was an interesting book, it took a close look at life as a teenage girl and the ability she may have to start over in a new area. I would like to see more of what she’s learned as she continues to move through college.

      I know that Erin Morgenstern is writing another book, but I don’t think it’s a Night Circus sequel. Bu I’m still interested to see what it is!
