Booking Through Thursday: Sequels

October 13, 2011

Booking Through Thursday asks: If you could get a sequel for any book, what would it be?

Given the fact that I tend to prowl bookstores, touching book spines and muttering “write more, damn it!” to certain authors while I stare at books I’ve already read… (Yes, I have actually done this. Especially in the mystery and scifi sections) I have a long list.

There should always be new books in Aaron Elkins’ Gideon Oliver series. And Kathy Reichs’ Temperance Brennan series. Always! Give me more forensic anthropology!

Terry Pratchett should write more Guards books featuring Vimes and co. These are a recent discovery on my part. And I know that Mr. Pratchett has announced some sad news. I wish him many more healthy writing years. Especially for the Guards books.

Marissa Doyle should write more. The combination of Regency romance and fantasy magic, with banter, is too perfect to be confined to just two books. GoodReads got me all hopeful that there was a third one… but so far, nada.

I wonder what food Poppy Z. Brite would focus on if there were another Rickey and G-Man book. I would read it happily.

I would also read sequels to Comfort Food, by Kate Jacobs, and The School of Essential Ingredients, by Erica Bauermeister.

    I love Kathy Reichs’ Books. I am always up for reading more about Temperance Brennan and I actually really enjoyed her YA book Virals. I heard that there are more in that series too.

    I tend not to jones for sequels, and I often find sequels annoying, because given the culture our media has created, there’s often no second story to tell. HOWEVER:

    Madeleine L’Engle was working on an adult Meg book when she died. Want want want.

    Octavia Butler was working on a sequel to Fledgling when she died (as you could probably gather from the first book).
