Today is Wednesday, which means that it is time for another Top 5 Wednesday. The topic this week is top five book series you wish had more books. This was an easy topic to write about because there are so many series that should have more books added to them. This topic was created by Gingerreadslainey on YouTube. You can find the topics over on the Goodreads T5W group. Let’s get started.
- Harry Potter
Everyone can agree that J.K. Rowling needs to create more books in the Harry Potter universe. These books have been such a big part of my childhood, and now even my life as an adult. I have been reading these books for over 10 years and I will not stop anytime soon. The characters and the fantastical elements are breathtaking and we need more books.
2. The Grisha Trilogy
The Grisha trilogy consists of Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising. These books are written by Leigh Bardugo. The characters and the world in this book are fantastic. I need more backstories and world building. Each of the books does not go into too much detail about the world of Ravka. Ravka is a fantasy version of Russia, and I would love to get more history and reasoning to why and how the characters have their powers.
3. The Shatter Me Trilogy
The Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi are great books. However, like the Grisha trilogy, they lack character and world building I would have liked. We do not get backstories of any of the characters except for Warner. Furthermore, Mafi never explains how the characters got their powers. She does talk about radiation, and how the people with gifts are immune to them, but she doesn’t say that radiation is the cause of their powers. Moreover, if it were radiation why are there not more people like them. Also, the trilogy ends abruptly with a slight cliff hanger. I need to know how it all ends!!!!
4. The Host Series
The Host by Stephanie Meyer was supposed to have more than one book. However, it has been years and we still haven’t gotten another book. I actually really liked The Host and I would have loved a second book. The concept of the book was incredible and I would have loved to see it explained more.
5. The Lord of the Rings
Everyone would have loved to have more books that dealt with Middle Earth. I would have loved to see a book that talked about Gandalf and his adventures as a young wizard. I also know that this is incredibly impossible because J.R.R Tolkien has sadly passed away. However, if one of his children wanted to write something in the next year or so that would be incredible!
There you have it! That is my Top 5 Wednesday. What are book series that you wish could continue on? Comment down below!
Read ya later!
