Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish Had More...

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme 
This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is pretty open - books that I wish had more/less X. More kissing, less romance, more world building, etc. But I'm taking the prompt literally. Books that make me want more. More books (if it was a stand alone) or more sequels (if it was a series). Because sometimes you love a story and the characters so much you Just. Want. More.

The Lux series - Jennifer L. Armentrout
Yes, the series is complete. Yes, I was satisfied with the ending. And yes, I even read the first three books from Daemon's POV - but I still want/need more. I just don't get tired of reading about my favorite book boyfriend.😉

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli
I love Simon. I need more Simon. And Blue. More Simon + Blue. 
Please and thank you.

Pushing the Limits series - Katie McGarry
I read the entire series. I read the short stories. I read the bonus content. Still want more. 

I'll Meet You There - Heather Demetrios
I'm sure Josh and Sky are just fine. But if I could have a little more I would be so happy. A short story? An epilogue? C'mon, Heather, just a little something?

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell
I mean, seriously, that ending. If you've read it you know. I have every hope that Eleanor's situation (and life) improved dramatically. And I envision a future that included Park. But oh how I would love to have a little more of those two.

Maybe Someday - Colleen Hoover
The first book I ever read by CoHo still holds a special place in my heart. It ended well, no lingering questions, no loose ends, but I don't care. I adored Sydney + Ridge and would love to revisit them a few years down the road.

Some Kind of Perfect - Krista & Becca Ritchie
This was a 664 page epilogue of sheer perfection. And yet I'm still not ready to say goodbye to these unforgettable characters.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black
This is one of the few stand alone novels that I am convinced should be a series. Because Gavriel. 'Nuff said.

Him/Us - Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy
I loved Him, I loved Us, and Wes and Jaime's story has been told. Don't care - still want more. I will never tire of those guys.

Thunder Road series - Katie McGarry
Just like with McGarry's Pushing the Limits series, I could keep reading about these characters book after book. I want Eli's story. I want Pigpen's story. I want a happy ending for Addison. 

What book has totally left you wanting more?

    1. I get rather ridiculous about the Lux series. LOL I can't help myself. :)
      And Simon... I just fell in love with him. I've listened to the audio version 3X now and know that I'll do so again and again. Such a great character/story.

  2. Definitely agree with Eleanor and Park - I needed so much more of them, especially after that ending!

    1. Yes! Rowell does love her vague and abrupt endings. :) But Eleanor & Park took the cake. I so need a check-in with those two.

  3. Oh I loved Daemon - he was so swoony. I really need to read Simon Vs. I've been hearing really great things about it. I like how you took the topic literally, Tanya! Have a good week :)

  4. Good topic!!! I always want more Wes and Jamie. And Simon is amazing and I would read anything with him. I'll Meet You There is one I would love an extended epilogue. Great list!!

    1. A friend of mine told me that there was a letter from Josh to Sky in the back of the paperback version of I'll Meet You There. I have the hardcover so I went to the bookstore and read it. LOL It wasn't an epilogue but it was something. :)

  5. Wow there are so many books I wished could go on forever. A recent one that I read is Unexpectedly Hers (I haven't posted my review yet) but I loved the characters and did not want to leave their world. ~Aleen

    1. I just love that feeling of loving the characters so much you don't want it to end. Can't wait to see your review of Unexpectedly Hers! :)

    1. Have you read Good Boy yet, Lauren? I'm sure Jamie and Wes are in there but I sure would love another book just about them. :)

  7. Elenor and Park, funny you mention that one. I read it a few months ago and really thought it would be amazing if there was more!

  8. Ahh Wes and Jamie! You might want to read Good Boy, it's their wedding! (And yet I still want more of them!)

  9. So many of those titles are on my tbr list - heck, I own most of them lol! I've started the Lux series but still have only read the first two books. I haven't read any of the others :(

    1. I know what you mean, Berls. I see books on other blogs all the time and they're on my TBR but it just hasn't happened yet. *sigh* When will someone just pay us to stay home and read full time? LOL

  10. Ohh, I love this list! There's plenty of books that I also wish had more. Some weren't satisfying at all and others I'm just selfish and don't want to let go of.

    1. I'm usually on the "selfish and don't want to let go" side. :) I fall in love with the characters and just don't want to say goodbye.

  11. I would love a companion novel for Simon, or even just a novella!

    1. I'd love to have more of Simon - he's such a great character!

  12. Gavriel is by far one of the most UNIQUE male protagonists I've read in a YA novel in a long time. Holly Black really outdid herself with him and I adore that book. It felt odd to me as a standalone though. It just felt like it was made for a series!

    1. YES! So glad you agree! Gavriel was ah-mazing and after the ending of that one I was desperate for more.

  13. The Lux series is one of those I hope to get to soon. and I just added Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda to GR because you made it sound good and reminded me I was already intrigued :)

    1. The Lux series is one that I get all fangirly about. Seriously, it's ridiculous how much I love that series. And I am not a rereader but I make an exception for that series. :) And Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda... oh my heart. Love it! I picked it up and a whim last year and it became an instant favorite.
