Top Ten Tuesday~ Give Me Another

Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the amazing team at The Broke and the Bookish. As TTT is currently on hiatus, I am posting a selection of freebie topics in July. This week I’m doing books that I think should have sequels because one book is not enough!

The Problem with Forever

The Problem with Forever
I want to know what happens with Rider and Mallory and company… especially Hector! We need his story. And Ainsley’s! And maybe Paige’s as well. And then there’s Keira…

Terra (Terrestrials, #1)

Terra
This one is supposed to be the first in a series and I am just sitting here waiting patiently for book 2. Of course I happen to know that since the book came out the author has changed careers (in non-writing life), gotten married, and is expecting her first child, so I guess I can wait a little longer??

Fangirl

Fangirl
I think everyone would enjoy more Cath and Levi… but I’d also maybe like to get Wren’s story.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
What happens with Charlie after Sam and Patrick go away to college?

All the Bright Places

All the Bright Places
I just want to see if Violet continues to live, explore and travel on her own…

Nora & Kettle (Paper Stars, #1)

Nora and Kettle
I just found out the second Paper Stars novel is being released, but unfortunately it doesn’t follow the same characters. I want more of Kettle and Kite!

The Rosie Effect (Don Tillman, #2)

The Rosie Effect
Yes, I realize that this is already a sequel, but I want more! I want to spend more time with Don and Rosie and see them as parents!

Highly Illogical Behavior

Highly Illogical Behavior
How is Soloman doing? Does Clark still visit? How is Soloman’s grandmother? I have so many questions, I need another book!

The Haters

The Haters
Again, I just really want to know what happens after… I always want to know what happens after.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I don’t think I’ll ever be ready for this series to end…

Top Ten Tuesday~ Family Wishes

Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the amazing team at The Broke and the Bookish. As TTT is currently on hiatus, I am posting a selection of freebie topics in July. This week I decided to share the top ten fictional families I would like to join. I find it interesting that most of these are large families and almost all are mostly brothers with 1 or maybe 2 sisters.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

The Weasley Family
Who doesn’t love the Weasley family? They are loving and supportive of each other, always having each other’s back {even Percy, ultimately}. And they easily adopted Harry and Hermione into their family along with the members of the Order, including them and caring for them as they would their own.

The MacGregors: Serena & Caine (The MacGregors, #1 -2) The MacGregors: Alan & Grant (The MacGregors, #3-4) The MacGregor Brides (MacGregors, #6) The MacGregor Grooms (MacGregors, #8) The MacGregors: Daniel & Ian (The MacGregors #0.2, #5)

The MacGregor Family
While the patriarch of this family is a wiley old matchmaker, he truly does want the best for his kids and grandchildren. This is one of those really close extended families where everyone is there for each other and the cousins are best friends.

Love Only Once (Malory-Anderson Family, #1) Tender Rebel (Malory-Anderson Family, #2) Gentle Rogue (Malory-Anderson Family, #3) The Magic of You (Malory-Anderson Family, #4) Say You Love Me (Malory-Anderson Family, #5) The Present (Malory-Anderson Family, #6) A Loving Scoundrel (Malory-Anderson Family, #7) Captive of My Desires (Malory-Anderson Family, #8) No Choice But Seduction (Malory-Anderson Family, #9) That Perfect Someone (Malory-Anderson Family, #10) Stormy Persuasion (Malory-Anderson Family, #11) Beautiful Tempest (Malory-Anderson Family, #12)

The Malory & Anderson Families
This family of scoundrels is incredibly devoted to each other and while the men may be promiscuous rakes until they meet their soul mates, they are utterly protective of their nieces. In this family, you always know that the other members have your back.

Kiss and Tell (T-FLAC, #2) Hide and Seek (T-FLAC, #3) In Too Deep (T-FLAC, #4) Out of Sight (T-FLAC, #5) On Thin Ice (T-FLAC #6)

The Wright Family
Another close knit family… of warrior men. Again, super close brothers, protective of their sister and eventual wives and children.

To the Edge (The Bodyguards, #1) To the Limit (The Bodyguards, #2) To the Brink (The Bodyguards, #3) Into the Dark (The Bodyguards, #6)

The Garrett Family
Another family of warriors, though the women in this one are warriors too. This family takes in their friends as well, keeping them all super close. And they keep things sane with wicked games of croquet.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2) City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3) City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4) City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)

The Lightwood Family
While this isn’t necessarily the best family, they did accept Jace into their family and treat him as one of their own. And all of the kids are awesome, so the parents must have done something right. Plus the whole Shadowhunter thing would be awesome.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2) The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3) The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #4) The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

The Jackson Family
Percy’s mom is probably the best mom I’ve ever come across. She would do anything necessary to protect her son, but still provides him with love and a normal {ish} life. She accepts his friends into their family, and even his very interesting half brother. And then there’s his dad, I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want Poseidon as their dad? He may be a god, and maybe he broke his vow, but he at least watched over his sons and acknowledges them, providing them with what help he can.

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library (Mr. Lemoncello's Library #1) Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics (Mr. Lemoncello's Library, #2) Mr. Lemoncello's Great Library Race (Mr. Lemoncello's Library #3)

The Keeley Family
Any family who has regular game nights is one that I want to be a part of. And this family not only has fun together on game night, but they also support each other through challenges.

Highly Illogical Behavior

The Reed Family
I have never read about a more supportive family. They aren’t perfect, and sometimes their choices aren’t the best, but they are there for their son 100%. I would love to have that kind of understanding and support in my own life.

Come Away with Me (With Me in Seattle, #1) Fight with Me (With Me in Seattle, #2) Play with Me (With Me in Seattle, #3) Rock with Me (With Me in Seattle, #4) Safe with Me (With Me in Seattle, #5) Tied with Me (With Me in Seattle, #6) Breathe with Me (With Me in Seattle, #7) Forever with Me (With Me in Seattle, #8)

The Williams & The Montgomery Families
These two families are both incredibly close and have both accepted Natalie as a part of their families, intertwining the two families together. Not only are they full of hot men, they are full of men who are respectful and supportive to the women in the family.
