Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

I was born to read.  Some of my earliest memories are reading books and making up my own stories.  One of my favorite childhood photos is a picture of me sitting outside, roller skates cast off, sitting in a fold out chair reading not one, but two books. I was the kid who would get books taken away as punishment and who perfected reading under the covers (and in the closet!) without getting caught.  Now that I’m an adult, I don’t have to hide, but if you see bags under my eyes, you know why.

When I started this adventure last April, I had NO idea where it would take me.  I could not of predicted the fun and enjoyment it would bring, along with the opportunities.  Adding Loren to the team in January just made the whole thing 100x better, because now I get to do all of it with my bbf (yes, that is best friends forever as spelled by my five year old. It was cute and kind of stuck).

So, here are our reasons we love being bloggers and readers!

Top Ten Books That Should Have Sequels

We all have them.  Books near and dear to our hearts that we just didn’t want to end.  I have to admit, that a lot of stand alone books I read I DON’T want a sequel — sometimes a book ends so perfectly that adding to it takes away from its magic.  So what are ten book I wish could go on?

Top Ten Books That Should Have Sequels

 

1. Harry Potter

But there are seven, Jessica.  I know that’s what you are thinking.  However, after the end, I didn’t want things to be over.  We Potter fans still have SO many other questions.  After this amazing Buzzfeed post, all my feels surfaced again.  Seriously, J.K., just one more!

2. Eleanor & Park

I need to know those three word Rainbow.  I gotsta have them.

3. The Host

5. Solitary/Hurt

I know there were four books, but I’m just not ready to let go of Chris Buckley.

6. Choker

This book was straight up CREEPY and disturbing.  So naturally, I wanna see where things go next.

7. Stupid Perfect World

Scott Westerfeld wrote an awesome world in this short story.  I definitely want to know more about this futuristic society.

8. Asphodel

Yeah this plays into my obsession with Persephone & Hades.  Lauren Hammond wrote this book in 2011 and I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for more.

9. Monsters of Men

I need to know if he woke up.  Seriously, write more Patrick Ness!

10. Shades on Earth

This book series ended spectacularly.  Mainly I just LOVE Amy & Elder and want to see how they get along.

So, that’s it.  What about you?  What books do you want to see sequels for?
